I would just use tourism=caravan_site. You could add tags such a
touring=no (not documented) and/or static=yes (not documented). The
caravan_site tag is widely used and currently renders.
Many UK static caravan sites are not strictly residential, they have a
planning clause prohibiting year-round occupation, so they are really
recreational. I don't think hamlet is appropriate for a caravan site at all.
