Holiday Parks

‘Holiday park’ is a broad term covering a range of accommodation options, including touring, camping, glamping, pods, static caravans, lodges and chalet parks. 

This means it also covers a wide range of legal issues, ranging from day-to-day snags to serious legal situations. And, as many are run as a family business, this too can call for legal guidance.
