Thinking of buying a holiday home at Rosneath Castle Park? Get your questions answered here!

Owning a holiday home is becoming increasingly popular for many people, who are not only looking to invest their well-earned money but also to have a better quality of life by being free to get away whenever the need takes them. There has never been a better time to buy and here at Rosneath Castle Park we can make that dream a reality.



Our family owned and run park offers the opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle and immerse yourself in serenity and tranquillity, from the amazing Loch and countryside views to the fantastic on-site facilities which allow you to do as much or as little as you like from the secured playground, soft play centre and Funzone for the younger ones, to making a splash at the water sports centre, or maybe just sitting back watching the world go by with a refreshing drink and tasty meal at the Castle Isle Bar & Restaurant, the choice is yours.

The park is dog friendly, so your precious pup gets to come along and be part of the Rosneath Castle Park family too.

With companies now allowing hybrid working, many employees are now free to work from anywhere they wish when they are not in the office, so being able to getaway and enjoy a break as well as keeping up with their work schedule is a massive draw and giving people the best of both worlds, but even for those that have to go to their place of work daily are seeking solace of a weekend by having the freedom of jumping in their car with just a change of clothes on a Friday evening safe in the knowledge they have a place to go anytime they want a change of pace and scenery without having to scroll through accommodation booking sites for last minute availability.

Many of our holiday homeowners love the fact they can give their friends and family the chance to have a wee holiday by inviting them to stay at their holiday caravan.

There are a few things to consider before we can hand over the keys to your holiday home. We may need to complete groundworks to get the pitch ready and the holiday home will need to be moved and sited on the pitch that you chose if it wasn’t sold on the pitch it currently was on, but rest assured we will do our absolute best to get those keys in your hand as soon as we possibly can.

Our site fees vary depending on the size of the pitch and the location within the park, so please contact our sales call or email our team at and they will be happy to help.


Can I pay the pitch fees monthly?

You can choose to pay in full or to make life that little bit easier you can spread the cost over a maximum of 10 months, which will include a small admission fee.


What do the pitch fees cover?

Your annual pitch fee covers site maintenance, water, landscaping, pitch services, rubbish collection and grass cutting.


Are pitch fees the same as site fees and if not, how much are the site fees and what do they cover?

Yes. they are the same.

We will read the meter and invoice quarterly. You may wish to provide us with more regular readings to help keep the cost down.


What is an average utility bill payment?

It’s difficult to say as it depends on an individual’s lifestyle.


Is the gas piped or bottled?

Most of the holiday park benefits from piped gas, we do have a small area in our D section which is bottled gas.


Do I need insurance, what would be an average price for this, and can you recommend a quality insurer?

An average price would be between £200 and £500 but it depends on the age, make and model of the holiday home or lodge. We can recommend any individual company, but a lot of our owners use Leisure Days


Do I have to maintain my own caravan or are any maintenance services included from the park?

You as an owner are responsible for the upkeep of your own Holiday Home. We are here to help where we can with anything relating to drop in water pressure, boiler issues, leaks, gutter repairs, there is a small call out charge. If it is anything relating to the infrastructure – this will be the parks responsibility and the charge will not incur. Any specialist repairs such as gas, window/glass work, joinery etc is still the sole responsibility of the owner.
