The Benefits of Buying a Lodge Home in the UK

Posted: 20th January, 2020

You might be wondering what the benefits of buying a lodge home are and how it is better than booking a holiday abroad. Well, let us tell you why we think it could be one of the best decisions you ever make. 

With the rising costs of holidaying abroad and the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, it’s no surprise that more Britons are expected to holiday in the UK in 2020 – and North Wales is expected to be one of the most popular destinations.

What if you had the option to holiday in the UK, whenever you like? Below we’ll talk about the benefits of buying a lodge home in the UK and buying on Anglesey, in particular. We’ll also give you some pointers on what you need to think about when thinking about buying a holiday home.

What are the benefits of buying a lodge home in the UK?

The value of the pound

Back in 2016, we talked about how the value of the pound had dropped since the European Union Membership Referendum result. And this is still the case as we enter 2020; at the moment you can expect to get 1.17 euros or 1.3 US dollars for every 1 pound.

By holidaying in the UK, you don’t have to worry about unpredictable exchange rates and forking out more for your holiday.

It’s close to home

Have you ever had a last minute urge to go away for the weekend or had a particularly difficult week and needed a break? As a holiday home owner in the UK, you now have that freedom.

Fancy a weekend break or a whole week away? Just hop into your car and you can be in your holiday home in no time.

Keep the kids entertained

One of the hardest parts of going on a family holiday is keeping the children entertained. By owning a lodge on a holiday park, you have facilities and entertainment on your doorstep so you never have to worry about that again.

We have a great range of activities available for your little ones so they’ll never be bored again when it comes to the school holidays.

Take your pets on holiday

Forget putting your pets in a kennel or hiring a sitter, now you can take the whole family on holiday.

We welcome all pets here at Silver Bay, just make sure to let us know before you arrive.

Why should I consider buying a lodge home on Anglesey?

The beautiful beaches

One of the main attractions for people that visit Anglesey are the beautiful beaches. We have the blue waters and sandy beaches you might expect outside of the UK, but all easily accessible from the rest of the country.

Last year, we put together some of our favourite beaches on Anglesey, including our very own Silver Bay beach.

The amazing food

Anglesey has no shortage of ingredients with many of the restaurants on the island creating delicious dishes using fresh, local produce.

We recently produced a map of the best places to eat on Anglesey based on feedback from our holiday home owners and social media followers.

The local attractions

There’s plenty of things to see and do on Anglesey. Whether you’re looking for something adventurous or a fun family activity, you’ll never be bored.

What do I need to think about when buying a lodge home?

Do your research!

The first step to buying a holiday home is always do your research. We have an online brochure to give you an idea of what life is like here at Silver Bay.

Visit the holiday park in person

Nothing comes close to seeing the real thing and we think our holiday park and lodges look great in the photos, but they look even better in the flesh. Each lodge comes with plenty of space for the whole family and is finished to the highest standard, not to mention the spectacular views. 

All of this can only really be appreciated by visiting us in person. You can request a callback to arrange a visit.

Do I have the finances?

You should always try to find a holiday property that’s within your budget. We offer a selection of lodges and caravans, both pre-owned and new, so there’s sure to be something that suits your budget.

You should also remember that holiday parks will often charge site fees, which you should factor in when considering your budget.

Decide how you would like to purchase

Before purchasing your holiday home you should know that brand new caravans come with a licence of 15 years and lodges with a 50 year licence. If you would still like to go ahead, there are a few options available to you.

You can always buy the property outright with cash or you could use a private funding source; for example a remortgage or equity loan.

We’re always happy to discuss the different options with you, request a callback today and a member of our friendly team will be in touch.
