Mowbreck Park offers an idyllic and tranquil setting where you can relax and unwind with friends and family. Whether you’re looking for a rural corner of the world to call home, or are looking for a holiday property that you can stay in for up to 50-weeks of the year – there’s a place for you here.
Our modern residential park properties are equipped with everything you’ll need to create a new home for yourself. Whereas our static caravan homes are similarly well-equipped and make for an affordable holiday home that can be used throughout the seasons.
Siting the caravan home of your choice at Mowbreck is an affordable option for discerning holiday homeowners. Pitch fees at parks right on the coast or in the National Parks can be expensive. Mowbreck Park is located amongst some of the most stunning tourist locations in north west England. Even so, its secluded rural setting allows discerning buyers to enjoy great value-for-money pitch fees.
Our modern park homes are cleverly designed and well-appointed. Each has a lounge, kitchen, bathroom, two or more bedrooms, and a small garden area. All homes are built in accordance with BS 3632 : 2015 and are insulated to a standard that means they are comfortable for year-round living. Central heating, double glazing and excellent insulation mean that park homes are energy efficient, so monthly utility bills are minimal.
Park Rules for Mowbreck Park
In these rules:
- ‘occupier’ means anyone who occupies a park home, whether under an Agreement to which the Mobile Homes Act 1983 applies or under a tenancy or any other agreement.
- ‘you’ and ‘your’ refers to the homeowner or other occupier of a park home
- ‘we’ and ‘our’ refers to the park owner
These rules are in place to ensure acceptable standards are maintained on the park, which will be of general benefit to occupiers, and to promote and maintain community cohesion. They form part of the Agreement by which homeowners occupy the pitch in accordance with the Mobile Homes Act 1983 as amended.
None of the rules is to have retrospective effect. Accordingly:
- They are to apply only from the date on which they take effect, which is --- ; and

A similar requirement not to cause a nuisance applies to tenants and again this includes the behaviour of pets and animals.
