Why Buy a Lodge?

There’s something intrinsically romantic about lodges. Contemporary models are like palaces, with designer interiors, integrated appliances, and features you would normally associate with luxury new-builds. We’ve come a long way from the tin cans of yesteryear, so buying a lodge for the first time could be the best holiday decision you make. The modern holiday home gives you the potential to own a comfortable second home in a location where you may not be able to afford a brick and mortar alternative.

Is there somewhere you want to visit year after year? Wouldn’t you like to have your own base there? Maybe you have family or friends in a certain area and would like the opportunity to spend regular periods of time close to them? Whatever your reasons, a lodge gives you a reliable holiday spot that you can return to year on year, without all the rigmarole of making arrangements for where you’ll stay every time.

That isn’t the only benefit of buying a holiday home. Take a look at some of these benefits of buying a holiday home:

Great Affordability

Holiday homes remain one of the best options for the affordable, holiday-on-demand experience. They’re a low time investment holiday – you can head to on planned trips or spur-of-the-moment holiday getaways. There are lodges available at all price points, even for the family on a budget.

Luxury Accommodation

It’s no coincidence that some of the most popular kinds of holidays also feature a home away from home — and then some. Cruises and villa holidays are great examples of what we look for in holiday accommodation. Caravans can capture some of that same feel, providing you with all the new sights and sounds of a holiday while maintaining your own creature comforts.And if you have the money to spare, there’s really no limit on how luxury you can get with a caravan.

Sought-after Locations

Half of the appeal of a lodge lies in its location, so most are in prime areas of natural beauty, or at least somewhere with a close connection to the richness of nature. Holiday parks range from woodlands to riversides to shorelines, all offering their unique appeal.

On-Site Amenities

Going away from home doesn’t mean having to sacrifice all the usual creature comforts. Most lodge sites offer on-site amenities, from the basics like showers, toilets, and baby changing areas, to bars and swimming pools.

By the Sea or in the Countryside?

For those hankering after a holiday home by the sea or in the countryside, a lodge is a great buy. At Sell My Group, you can view the UK’s widest range of lodges for sale.

Buying a Lodge

State-of-the-art holiday lodges offer space in a stunning, contemporary environment. Built to high specifications, they benefit from added extras which include large, open-plan living areas, with plenty of storage and family-sized bathrooms — not to mention smart en-suites. Fancy a breakfast bar or bi-folding doors? You can find both these features and much more in a lodge. Benefits of investing in a lodge include:

Extended Holiday Season

If you don’t want your holidays limited to the on-season months, holiday lodges make a great investment. Your lodge is a home you can access all year round, and even many park-based lodges won’t close for the winter months.

Large Bedrooms

Done with sacrificing comfort for a good holiday? With holiday lodges, you don’t need to compromise. You can have the same level of comfort thanks to sizable bedrooms, even while you’re on holiday.

Family-Sized Bathroom

The sanctuary of the bathroom is real for anyone sharing a home with a spouse, children, and/or an extended family. With a holiday lodge, you can have access to a family-sized bathroom (or bathrooms) that can accommodate everyone — which can sometimes be a challenge when you’re away from home.

Great Storage

If you’re bringing in the family or you’re a clutterbug yourself, then you need good storage options. But many holiday options force a compromise when it comes to spreading out. If you’ve suffered one too many holidays in a cramped hotel room, then it could be time to upgrade and buy a lodge.

Huge Open-Plan Living Areas

Bright and airy living spaces always convey a sense of joy and luxury. Holiday lodges often feature open-plan living areas, giving your family space to spread out, but also an incentive to spend time together rather than disappearing into separate rooms. These kind of spaces are ideal for talking, playing board games, or just hanging out as a family.

Quality Fixtures and Fittings

A holiday lodge is a house by any other name — and that comes with all the upsides. With a lodge, you can have all the same quality fixtures, fittings, plumbing, and utilities as you’d expect at home.

Bang up to the Minute Interior Design

If you’ve ever stayed in a dated hotel room, you know that being stuck in the past tends to sap the energy out of a place. Lodges follow the latest design trends to keep a sleek, modern look, leaving that 80s hotel room in the dust.

And the Rest…

Some lodges benefit from balconies, extended verandas, hot tubs and boat moorings. To see what is currently available, visit the Sell My Group website where we have an A-Z list of parks.
