Located in Tendring just a few miles from the east coast of Essex, Homestead Caravans is a family owned enterprise that was first established over 50-years ago and can still be found on its original site in Weeley. 

From humble beginnings Homestead Caravans has become a company whose range of services and products truly transcends it's name, with breathtaking diversity most companies can only dream of. While it's true to say that Homestead Caravans and Outdoor Leisure is the GO-TO destination for Caravan Accessories and Touring Caravans in Essex and Suffolk, there's much more to this Caravan Dealer than first meets the eye. 

For starters In November 2018 the company began stocking Swift Motorhomes, becoming swifts only caravan and motorhome dealer in Essex and Suffolk, adding the Swift Escape and Swift Select ranges to 4 ranges of Swift Caravans for sale. Homestead Caravans has a long relationship with the Swift Group and we are proud to be the only Caravan and Motorhome Dealer in Essex and Suffolk for the Swift Group.

But what makes Homestead really stand out as unique is its holiday parks. Homestead Lake Touring Park is a small and peaceful caravan site, with 50 hard-standing fully serviced pitches, complete with toilet and shower block. Pitches are suitable for Caravans and Motorhomes plus a few spots are suitable for tents.

Homestead Lake Country Park is a luxury development of privately owned holiday lodges that is in its second phase of development. Both parks are situated in over 25 acres of idyllic countryside and are located on opposing sides of a stunning and well established 2 acre fishing lake.

Most New and Used Motorhomes and Caravans come with 3 nights FREE accommodation on our touring park to get you up and running with your new purchase before leaving our premises.

From its earliest roots Homestead Caravans has continually invested in its future, by increasing the range of products and services offered to its many loyal customers. As a consequence the company operates a state-of-the-art, purpose built 8-Bay Workshop, a 62 seat Café and probably the largest Motorhome and Caravan Accessory Shop in the UK, complete with dedicated Kampa AIR Awning Showroom.

Caravan Accessories

Homestead's Caravan Accessory Shop includes one of the largest collections of Caravan Accessories and Outdoor Equipment in the UK. The shop holds almost 6,000 unique products for Camping, Caravanning and Motorhomes and much more. The store is significantly larger than your average Caravan Dealer and well worth a visit, if you haven't been before.

Homestead has a reputation for finding new products and offering them to customers at very competitive prices, thanks to its large buying power and ability to stare down suppliers over tea and biscuits - LOL!

If you're in the market for a Caravan Awning a trip to the Homestead Caravans Accessory Shop is simply a must. Opened on 11th of March 2016, the Kampa Awning Showroom displays the very latest Kampa AIR Caravan Awnings, Awning Accessories plus, a selection of Kampa Outdoor Furniture.

In the event you are unable to visit our Caravan Dealership, our website aims to make it easy and convenient for you to buy Motorhome and Caravan Accessories Online with minimum fuss and next working day delivery is available to most UK destinations.

Balanced panel side walls with GRP outer and inner skins, a hail resistant GRP roof and GRP outer skin to the sandwich floor; creates a full GRP outer bodyshell making it even more resilient.
