Staycations are becoming increasingly popular in the UK, resulting in holiday lodge purchases skyrocketing in recent years. The idea of having a bolt-hole in the idyllic English countryside to retreat to for long weekends and holidays is appealing to many.

Besides having your own holiday haven that you can return to time and time again, holiday lodge ownership comes with plenty of additional benefits. In this article, we cover 5 of some of the best reasons to take the plunge and buy your very own holiday lodge.


1. More holidays, less stress

Having a home-away-from-home is the perfect way to escape for an easy mini-break whenever you please. You can create memories that will last a lifetime with your family all year, every year. No packing or passport needed!

Holiday lodge ownership gives you the freedom to come and go whenever suits you, eliminating the stress of tackling restrictive booking procedures, availability and the length of your stay.

There are many things to consider when booking a holiday, so why not remove the added stress by knowing you’ll always have somewhere to stay in a beautiful area with your family?


2. Investment and money saving opportunities

Holiday lodge owners often find that the cost of a lodge quickly pays for itself. Depending on how often you usually go on holiday, a holiday lodge could pay for itself within just a few years.

Holiday lodge ownership means you will always have guaranteed accommodation in a place you love, where you can visit as much as you like for no additional costs.

Contemporary lodges are a cheaper and easier alternative to traditional holiday homes. They are more energy efficient and include all of the amenities you could need, including furniture! You also won’t have to pay for council tax.

Lodge ownership is a fantastic investment opportunity. Renting out your holiday lodge when you’re not using it can help offset the running costs and even allow you to earn some extra income.


3. Building a sense of community

As a lodge owner, you’ll find yourself on holiday alongside like-minded people who also own lodges in the same holiday park. Seeing familiar faces on your holidays and mini-breaks will quickly make you feel part of a community.

With on-park owner’s lounges, cafés, bars and restaurants, making friends and meeting families with similar interests has never been easier.


4. Pet-friendly

There’s nothing more bittersweet than leaving your dog behind when you go on holiday. Owning your very own holiday lodge means you won’t have to say goodbye to your four-legged friend anymore, you can bring them along to share all the staycation joy with you!

Our holiday park welcomes dogs with open arms. All our lodges for sale are dog-friendly and we even have on-site dog washing and waste facilities to cater to your beloved pets.


5. A more sustainable way to travel

We all want to do our bit to help the environment. Holiday lodge ownership is the perfect way to travel more sustainably, as domestic tourism is inherently less emission-intensive than taking long-haul flights.

Keeping your annual holidays within the UK is certainly the kinder option for the planet. You’ll be greener as each year passes, eating locally sourced produce and cutting down on your ‘food miles’ as a result.
