Richmond Holiday Centre in Skegness
A short video from the Richmond Holiday Centre in Skegness. Please note that our spacious, upgraded caravans are located on the Richmond Holiday Centre but we are not part of that company. We are a small independent caravan hire business based on that site.
Deposits and Payments
We found we can’t list prices on our web site as we would like because the market is very competitive and our competitors would undercut any price we list as happened last year, this in no way means we’re expensive, quite the opposite it’s just that our competitors are greedy and wish to corner the market offering a less comfortable caravan experience with fewer facilities. We hope you can understand our frustration in this matter.
