Caravans are perhaps no longer a purse-friendly pandemic holiday, as evidenced by the fact one has gone up for sale costing £700,000.
This two-bedroom static caravan is thought to be the most expensive to ever go on sale in the UK, over £450,000 above the national average house price of £242,832.
Located in the Sandhills Holiday Village, Mudeford, Christchurch, it’s around a 45 minute drive from exclusive Sandbanks, which has been dubbed ‘millionaire’s row’ due to the high house prices.
Decked out with a king-size bed in the master bedroom, bunkbeds in the second bedroom, an ensuite, a shower room, and an open plan kitchen, the property doesn’t look much like the caravans you know.
However, it’s still classified as one due to the chassis and wheels on the bottom.
It seems to be the view you’re paying for, as the holiday home is right on the beach front, with views on clear days stretching all the way to the Isle of Wight.
Head from the living area out the bifold glass doors and enjoy the sea air. Or, when the weather gets particularly British, chill inside with your mood lighting, smart heating, and modern TV.

Paul Craven from My Holiday Caravan told The Sun: ‘The price is certainly exceptional – but so too is the holiday lodge itself with its stunning views across the ocean to the Isle of Wight.
Craven added: ‘The new owner will be taking possession of a real luxury paradise with top-end decor, furnishings, and mod-cons.
‘Sandhills is increasingly seeing customers wanting to make their holiday homes a match to the exclusive lifestyles with which this gorgeous area is associated.

‘It’s a very clever move, because even if the final price does nudge a million pounds, it’s massively less than a similar spec house would cost in a less privileged position.’
The season at Sandhills lasts for 11 months of the year, so you’ll need to ensure you have somewhere to live for 30 days.
Plus, as a holiday home, you probably won’t be able to get a mortgage on it.
Plus, although your pitch fees for this year are paid, you’ll need to stump up the £7625 to £10375 per annum after that.
If you’ve got the cash, though, it really is a wonderful spot.
