Why Lodges have Transformed Holiday Home Ownership


Posted by Justin Allitt in Comment, January 16, 2018

The rise and rise of the great British staycation has been coupled with a sharp increase in the number of lodge developments at holiday parks. This is no coincidence. Owning a lodge is not only a sound investment, it’s your gateway to holidays all year round.

Gone are the days when holiday parks closed at the end of the season. With the advent of luxury lodges and the extensions to twelve month licenses, park operators are keeping their gates open whatever the weather. Popular for family gatherings at Christmas, autumn breaks and long summer holidays, lodges are the contemporary alternative to the ‘cottage in the country’.

Extended holiday season boost for parks

Lodges are transforming holiday parks because they are extending the season and giving buyers more choice. Park owners can now run a business that operates all year, providing quality jobs and supporting the local economy as well as tourism in general.

Sell My Group has witnessed first-hand how new lodges have changed the way people think about holiday homes. While the static caravan will always retain an air of romance, there is a new breed of holiday home owner that simply requires more space. With footprints larger than many bungalows and interiors to die for, it is not hard to see why lodges have become the new must-have holiday home.

Luxury you can afford

Although lodges are typically more expensive than static caravans, they offer so much more. Space is just one of the many benefits. With huge living areas, vaulted ceilings, luxury bathrooms, sumptuous furnishings and interior design that wouldn’t go amiss in a five star hotel, you get a lot of bang for your bucks.

Full central heating, loft spaces for additional storage and all mod cons make the lodge a great investment. As well as being there, ready to use, whenever you need it, a lodge is made to make you feel extra special. You will notice the difference the moment you walk through the door.

Find out more about lodges

Owning a holiday home located on a park comes with great benefits. As well as being able to enjoy amenities, which can include leisure facilities, well-maintained outside spaces and bars, you will be able to get to know other owners – so there will always be a friendly face to see whenever you decide to take a break.
