A blog from our Holiday Home Sales Team
Hello from the WDLH Sales Team!
We can’t believe it is already September and show season is upon is! I know we have had a wonderful summer but just where has this year gone?
So what’s been happening in sales I hear you ask? Well, we welcomed Dan Dunford to the team in July. Some of you may know Dan as he previously worked in the Accounts Team. Unfortunately as we gained one we lost another and Jess decided she wanted to sell on the other side of the world. She has landed safely in New Zealand and is having a wonderful time!
When we were asked to write our blog, I wondered what to write about as sales is in most people eyes, well sales! So our day to day job includes speaking with and marketing to potential Holiday Home Owners, as well as assisting and helping our existing 500+ Holiday Home Owner’s across the 5 Parks. We are heavily involved in Marketing and have been busy learning how to operate our brand new website and also our Facebook page. We also have satellite offices out on the parks like the office at Golden Cap Holiday Park and the S Pod Sales Office at Larkfield Holiday Park that we visit daily and many of you may have spotted our shop window in West Bay with our brochure stands.
We generally hold stock on all 5 parks throughout the year, which is checked and opened daily (as long as the weather is nice!). We launched our late summer sale this week and we have some fabulous offers on our 2018 holiday homes for sale, many of them including decking’s and pitch fees paid until the end of the season (30th November)!

This brings me on nicely to what is our main role. We are ambassadors of the parks and carry out many tours of the parks either by walking, driving around in our people carrier or by meeting potential customers on a particular park in our Smart Car. We are very lucky that four of our five parks are around Bridport and within 5 minutes of each other. Sandyholme is just 30 minutes along the coast between Weymouth and Dorchester in a small countryside village of Owermoigne and a fantastic location to explore some of the best places on the Jurassic Coast.
It may only be September but in the Holiday Home Sales world, the 2019 models are about to be released. Southern Counties have a 2019 model already if you would like to see it. So where do we get caravans from I hear you ask! Well in Bridport we have over 30 caravans on display all the time in our two local dealerships, Southern Counties and Surf Bay which stock Willerby Holiday Homes, Atlas Leisure Homes, ABI Holiday Homes and Swift Holiday Homes. We also have Carnaby Caravans and Europa Caravans available from Exeter and our friends at Regal Holiday Homes and Victory Leisure Homes always have a presence on the showground.
We are already planning ahead and we are off to Beaulieu Holiday Home Show in a couple of weeks, which runs from Friday 21st – Sunday 23rd September. It is a great chance to see all the new models and a perfect day out if you are thinking of changing your Holiday Home or purchasing on one of our Parks. If you would like to come to the show we are offering free transport on the Saturday via a bus, or if you are making your own way there let us know if you would like a ticket. Contact Jen, Dan or Val on 01308 426917 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As well as Caravans, one of the biggest new areas of our job in the last 18 months is in the luxury lodge market, thanks to our new development called “Jurassic Retreat” at Larkfield Holiday Park. We have a range of showhome lodges for sale here, as well as vacant pitches, where new Holiday Home Owners can work with Prestige, Pathfinder or Pinelog to choose their dream lodge holiday home and make any additions or customisation to it that they wish. With a great location just 5 minutes walk from the beach and in the sought-after village of Burton Bradstock, a Holiday Home here is a great way to make memories with family and friends. We hope to see you at our Jurassic Retreat Open Day on Sunday 7th October 2018 between 10am and 2pm. We will have on display the new Prestige Hampton Lodge, as well as the others that are currently available for sale, which at the time of writing is the Pathfinder Retreat, the Pathfinder Tuscany and the Pinelog Skyline View.
We like to think that we make the process of buying a holiday home easy and our information is readily available online or via our sales pack. Our website has a page on the benefits of Holiday Home ownership, how to go through the process of purchasing a Holiday Home, the most frequently asked questions we get and finally testimonials so you can hear what our lovely Holiday Home Owners think of their dream lifestyle on the Jurassic Coast.
