How close to the beach?
Essex has plenty of beautiful beaches, and as a St Lawrence Holiday Home owner, you’re just a few yards away from a stretch of private Beach with our own launching ramp.
Are you pet friendly?
Yes, we love dogs, cats, rabbits, so as long as it’s not a classified dangerous breed, you’re welcome to bring them. (Nb: if you’ve got a half breed that looks like a dangerous breed, I’m afraid that’s not allowed either – some of our guests won’t know the difference. Please see our terms and conditions for full details.)
Can you buy to let?
For many of our owners, the peace and quiet of St Lawrence Bay is one of the main reasons they chose us as a destination. Allowing owners to let their Holiday Homes would change the dynamic considerably with different families arriving and departing regularly. For this reason we've decided that inviting buy to let investors to the development would be detrimental to the relaxed atmosphere of our Park - one of it's most powerful attractors.
Can our family and friends come and stay?
Absolutely, just so long as you make it available free of charge.
Are there any Holiday Homes or lodges to suit disabled people?
Yes, we can tailor make a lodge to suit your exact needs.
How long does a lodge or Holiday Home last?
Lodges are built to residential standards so it really depends how well you look after it, with proper care they’ll last a lifetime. Holiday homes are built to a BS specification and we have a number of units that have been owned by the same people dating back to 1984, and still going strong.
How long is the licence?
There is no upper limit to the length of time you can keep a Holiday Home at St Lawrence, we just ask that you keep the Holiday Home safe and in a good state of repair. In order for us to maintain high standards on the park we do have a checking system, so after 10 years we’ll inspect the unit to make sure it meets our reasonable requirements, then at 20 years, and annually thereafter. So long as the unit is up to standard, your licence will continue on.
Can we live in our Home all year round?
St Lawrence Holiday Park has a holiday licence which means that you can’t use your lodge/caravan as a main residence. You can stay in your lodge/caravan for up 10 months of the year, but you need to be paying council tax at a separate address to prove you are meeting the requirements of the law.
When is the site open?
The site is open for owners 10 months of the year. We close for two months in the new year.
What facilities are there for children?
St Lawrence and its surrounding towns and villages have lots of facilities for all ages, including children. There’s a soft play centre and numerous kiddy clubs that young children will love. Ridding, water sports and an excellent water park, bowling & roller rink, and leisure pool in Maldon.
