Webland ticked all the right boxes and since holidaying there I have not looked back.”
[/x_blockquote][x_accordion][x_accordion_item title=”Why is it important for a holiday park to be BH&HPA members?” open=”false”]Full Members of the BH&HPABH&HPA offer many benefits to holiday parks and for holiday home owners.

  • The BH&HPA set and maintain industry standards
  • They issue regulations and guidelines for holiday parks to follow
  • They provide a voice to Government on industry regulations
  • They provide training, support and best practice
  • They provide fair and equitable contracts and agreement templates

For holiday home owners they provide an important service as the recognised body they can turn to if they have any questions or concerns.

We would fully recommend that wherever you choose to buy a holiday home, you should check that they are full BH&HPA members[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”How does our license agreement work?” open=”false”]We start with standard BH&HPA agreements.

We issue all new lodges with an initial 75 year agreement (some pre-owned lodges may have shorter initial agreements).

Importantly, we also provide for you, as the original purchasers, to be able to hand down the property to your children without incurring any charges from us.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”When can I use my holiday lodge?” open=”false”]Webland Farm is open every day and you can use your holiday lodge as a holiday home throughout the year. The only condition is that Webland is not your primary residence. All our lodges and caravans are designated as second home/holiday home use. This means that our owners must have their main residence elsewhere, either in the UK or overseas, where they pay their council tax and are registered to vote.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”‘What does the annual pitch fee cover?’” open=”false”]Pitch fees, ground maintenance, sewerage, waste collection.

We are members of the BH&HPA, which means these fees cannot rise suddenly.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”‘Who looks after my lodge when I am not there?” open=”false”]One of the benefits of owning a lodge at Webland Farm is that there will always be someone to keep an eye on it when you are not there.

Each lodge has a security system linked to our office and mobile phones. We also keep a general monitor of your property and, if we see any problems we will give you a call to inform you and to agree the best course of action.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”‘What is Webland Farm’s ground maintenance programme?’” open=”false”]We believe ground maintenance is a vital part of the service we provide. Our aim is to maintain the park to a very high standard, and to remain committed to providing a peaceful, relaxing environment, and to make improvements each year.

We have ongoing planting schemes, sensitively carried out, to maintain views but enhance the park.

This has evolved over the last few years and has been met with a positive reaction from existing owners.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”‘Who is responsible for lodge maintenance?’” open=”false”]It is in your interest to maintain your property. If you wish, we will be pleased to help organise any repairs and maintenance to your lodge on your behalf, using appropriate local tradespeople.

Feedback from our existing lodge owners has led us to create high quality, low maintenance lodges in the Meadow.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”‘Are dogs allowed at Webland Farm?’” open=”false”]Yes, but they must be well behaved and under control at all times.

We have a separate field for dogs to run and exercise in, but they must be controlled and on a lead in the holiday home areas on the Park.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”What car parking is available?” open=”false”]The new Meadow lodges will all have their own personal car parking space by the side or in front of the lodge.

Spinney lodges have space close to the lodge.

There is also some general parking space for visitors.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”’What about my gas, water and electricity charges?’” open=”false”]Water is supplied partly from our own borehole and partly from the local water company. We have had a lot of positive comments about the quality of our water, which is filtered and chemical free.

Gas, water and electricity are metered and charged accordingly.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”‘Do I pay local authority rates and insurance?’” open=”false”]Yes. Your holiday lodge must be properly insured against all the usual risks including fire, flood, storm and third party liability and South Hams District Council set rates for our holiday homes. We can provide cost details on request.[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”‘How long will it take to complete a purchase?’” open=”false”]From initial order to taking over the keys can take several months.
[/x_accordion_item][x_accordion_item title=”‘Do I get a legal agreement with Webland Farm?” open=”false”]Yes, we are members of BH&HPA and you will have the security of a legally binding agreement formulated between the Office of Fair Trading and BH&HPA.[/x_accordion_item][/x_accordion][/cs_column][/cs_row][/cs_section][/cs_content]
