Yes, Ray, but it was increased quite a lot. It can now be quite a substantial extension I believe. There are criteria attached about neighbour nuisance etc though.

If you wanted to buy or rent some land off a farmer say for example in the UK and stick a static on it or a pine lodge of some description and live in it is it possible? Preferably something with mains electricity, plumbing etc.

Only until someone complained and then it would have to be demolished. Unless you called it "A Place of Worship" and then get away with it.

I think the only way you would get away with it is if you were employed by the farm in question. I think that farmers are allowed to house their employees. A farm near here seems to have two managers as they have recently been granted permission for a second manager's house. I am pretty sure that those houses come with an "agricultural restriction", though, when they are sold, which means they can only be occupied by people engaged in agriculture.

I wonder if we would get away with "night watchman" or "crow scarer"

However, it's not as simple as you may think. My next-door neighbour ploughed a couple of his 13acres, planted trees and set up as a tree nursery. However he was refused bricks and mortar: only a mobile home with a "duration of your life" clause was allowed.

Another neighbour used his land for poly-tunnels and eventually built a very nice 4-bed house. However, it came with an agricultural restriction and selling it was quite problematic.

As I understand it you have to submit accounts, now, to prove that the business is a viable one before they will even consider letting you build on agricultural land. Years ago my brother just started breeding rabbits for the meat market and they let him build a bungalow! All changed now as too many people did what he did and gave up the "business" as soon as they got planning approved.

Back to the original question yes they are ok to live in. When we decided to move to Spain we thought we would live in our mobile home until we decided were we would live, on the coast or inland.
We had central heating fitted and this summer an extra aircon unit was added and we still have not decided were we will move to so we will probably stay here for a while as it's very cosy here in our mobile home.

I should add we have recently bought another motorhome so we can explore Spain and Portugal now from our southern habitation point.

Thanks Gitty, any chance of a photo of it? Doesn't get as cold in Spain as in the Rheinland though

Jan, if you go to the La Quinta Bella campsite page ( better on facebook) there four Casas for sale with loads of photos.

Re cold, believe me these mobile homes are well insulated and with central heating very cosy.
I think the site is the main deciding factor.
