6 Reasons to buy a luxury holiday lodge
Buying a luxury holiday lodge V. a bricks and mortar second home has many enticing advantages
Buying a luxury holiday lodge is an affordable way of achieving a holiday lifestyle dream that offers a special private space away from home for downtime activities and relaxation. What’s even better, all ground maintenance, services and security are taken care of, even when you are away from your luxury holiday lodge, living your daily life!
There are many advantages to owning a holiday lodge versus a second bricks and mortar home and choosing your ideal holiday park to suit your aspirations is key to achieving happy holiday memories that are conducive to your chosen downtime activities, without the hassle that often goes with maintaining a bricks and mortar second home.
A luxury holiday lodge is for relaxing, switching off, recharging, enjoying new surroundings and exploring new places. It’s even an opportunity to meet new friends with similar interests, all part of a holiday lifestyle choice that lets you make the most of your time away from everyday life.
Finding a special place that offers you peace, tranquillity, the natural world around you and a gateway to discovery and adventure, is sometimes difficult when looking for a bricks and mortar holiday home, because land prices are expensive when located in sought after, awe inspiring places, or where there are uninterrupted views.
Holiday Parks are often positioned in locations that are popular for holidays, be it rural retreats or coastal havens.
Finding special locations that are still a hidden gem, with picture perfect views and holiday lodge plots available, will be key to accessing opportunities to share in the natural beauty of unspoilt landscapes at a more affordable price tag and less long term hassle when compared to bricks and mortar second properties.
Arcadia Lodge Park at Maes Mynan Park, as the name suggests, offers unspoilt views, which stretch across the Clwydian Range, Chwiller Valley and Denbigh Moors and it’s hard to see a bricks and mortar property within the panoramic views on offer.
Buying a luxury holiday lodge on a place like Maes Mynan Park, opens up a secret door to a natural wonderland from the comfort of your armchair, somewhere to escape to the country whenever the time allows.
Owning a holiday lodge has lots to offer. Here we explore six additional benefits for buying a luxury holiday lodge over a bricks and mortar second home.
1. Reduce stress with low maintenance costs
When luxury holiday lodges are built, they are designed to be low maintenance, with everything neatly laid out and integrated for maximum comfort and enjoyment. Take the Wessex Allure Lodge and its separate snug. A suitably comfortable armchair offers ample opportunity to gaze across the picture perfect views offered by Maes Mynan Lodge Park, an Arcadian wonderland that will be sure to restore your energies.
Then there is the fully equipped kitchen that even has an extra spacious walk-in pantry, ideal for keeping all your dry goods in order when you leave to go back home to your everyday life. Take a virtual tour here and see for yourself.
Holiday lodges maximise space and use materials designed to keep maintenance to a minimum. The choice of construction methods, roofing applications, windows and single-story layout, usually means that any maintenance or repairs if necessary are quick to rectify.
Maintaining the internal and exterior finishes of a holiday lodge is designed to be quick and effective for longevity and for CanExel finishes (like those on Arcadia Lodge Park at Maes Mynan Park), if you look after it, is almost maintenance free and can be cleaned with soft sponge and mild detergent.
Holiday lodges maximise space and use materials designed to reduce maintenance costs over time. The choice of construction methods, roofing applications, windows and single-story layout, usually means that expensive repairs are unlikely and are quick to rectify.
Maintaining the internal and exterior finishes of a holiday lodge is designed to be quick and effective for longevity and for CanExcel finishes (like those on Arcadia Lodge Park at Maes Mynan Park), if you look after it, only small patch repairs will be necessary when a small scuff here and there may appear over time.
With a bricks and mortar second home, you will always have repairs, upkeep and maintenance costs to consider, especially if it is an older building where damp, roofing repairs, pointing, re-rendering, electrical and plumbing issues mean long waits for tradesmen to get back to you – and at what cost?
If it is a holiday lifestyle you yearn for, spending time sorting house problems out is not always part of the dream plan, because after all, you really don’t want stress following you from home to home.
2. Keep cool or warm depending on the season with an energy efficiency luxury holiday lodge
Holiday lodges, like the Wessex Spinney are built to residential specification BS 3632, and are suitable for all year-round use when a holiday park like Arcadia Lodge Park at Maes Mynan has a 12-month holiday licence in place. The British Standard BS 3632 has an energy efficiency that means holiday lodges benefit from a standard of insulation that means you will use less energy and save money on energy bills over the course of a year, whatever the weather and season.
Although bricks and mortar second homes will have insulation, the depth and efficiency within the home will depend upon age, maintenance upkeep and interiors of the property. Re-insulating a bricks and mortar property incurs greater costs and includes hassle when trying to find a tradesman in an area you don’t normally live in. Or if you are doing the work yourself and hate DIY, then it eats into your downtime, which means you have less time to relax and enjoy what you really like to do.
3. Breaks away anytime without the hassle
Buying a luxury holiday lodge gives you an opportunity to take a break at any time, not just holiday times. Wessex and Omar are luxury lodge manufactures who understand their niche market, where creating inspiring boutique holiday homes will go a long way to support a dream holiday lifestyle.
Owning your own luxury holiday lodge in a beautiful slice of paradise like Maes Mynan Lodge Park will give you instant access to boutique style holidaying when you choose the perfect stylish lodge to suit your taste and style.
Buying a luxury holiday lodge in a place of your dreams will ensure a familiar environment every time you visit – a home from home experience with the added bonus of knowing all the grounds maintenance and security are taken care of, even when you are not there!
This is something a bricks and mortar holiday home won’t always offer and its upkeep year on year will often turn into a chore!
Having your very own place to stay in a destination you love, could also save you time on travel, as well as money on expensive hotels or cottage rentals year after year. Owning a holiday lodge can also save expensive maintenance costs associated with bricks and mortar second homes.
4. Turnkey finishes will save on the cost of interiors and furniture when you buy a luxury holiday lodge
In contrast to many bricks and mortar holiday homes, most luxury holiday lodges are sold with fully fitted kitchens, bathrooms, flooring and furniture. There are also bespoke options on internal finishes and furnishings included within the overall holiday lodge price. This saves time and money on sourcing these, but also reduces the need for interior designers and tradesmen for renovations on a traditional bricks and mortar build.
If you decide to bespoke your new luxury lodge, not only can you design it to fit your taste and style, you actually have your dream holiday home built from scratch with the option to choose your interiors, furniture, window style and so on – all with the help of the Wessex and Omar design teams, who have over 50 years of experience creating luxury lodges.
5. Save on Stamp Duty, taxes and legal costs when you buy a luxury holiday lodge
If you’re thinking about buying a holiday home for personal use, you are unlikely to pay Stamp Duty on a luxury holiday lodge on a holiday park that is designed to cater for holiday only lifestyles.
Depending upon the cost of a bricks and mortar second home, there may be stamp duty to pay and with governments always looking for new ways to tax second homeowners, this is another cost you must bear in mind. For further information visit www.gov.uk.
In addition, you will always need a solicitor or conveyancer if you are buying a bricks and mortar second home and these will also incur disbursements, as well as their fees, for things like searches and land registration fees.
Holiday parks offering space for luxury holiday lodges work to a licence agreement that are often endorsed by an industry leading organisation like the NCC. Holiday parks will offer a lengthy licence period for luxury lodges as part of the sales process. Arcadia Lodge Park at Maes Mynan Park offers 35-year licences to all their holiday lodge owners. This offers their customers and their family’s certainty, all backed up with Park Rules and Terms and Conditions that includes no subletting for extra peace of mind, safety and security.
