5 Benefits of Buying Your Own Holiday Lodge

With the continued rise of the Staycation demand here in the UK, there are more reasons than ever to invest in holiday lodge ownership. For some, it’s about simply having a haven or place of escape, for others it’s more of a business led purchase. We appreciate that everyone’s circumstance is personal, and no two customers have the same requirements.

Buying a holiday lodge isn’t a small decision to make. If it’s something you’re considering and you want to learn more about the benefits that you can enjoy if you do, we’ve put together this list below. These are the top 5 benefits of buying your own holiday lodge:

Freedom and Flexibility

Holiday home ownership or luxury lodge ownership provides freedom and flexibility to escape whenever you feel the urge. With no restrictions on use all year round (at Roadford Lake Lodges), no concerns over availability or of course meeting the minimum night’s stay requirements, simply pack your bags and off you go! Be sure to make full use of ownership and make your escapes even more convenient by leaving key items and belongings at your holiday home to ensure you have all you need each and every time you visit.

You also have the freedom to make it your own. With a varied selection of lodges available, there are various options when it comes to layout, design and affordability. Our lodges for sale have something to suit everyone.

Experience Luxury

Gone are the days of not so welcoming holiday homes! With almost all of our luxury lodges being built to a full residential specification you can be sure to notice just how far holiday homes have come over the years. Meticulously thought-out designs maximise every inch of space, including luxurious interiors and décor, not to mention fully equipped kitchens with integrated appliances. Depending on the layout, some even come equipped with a utility room too!

Our holiday homes here at Roadford Lake Lodges are modern, light and spacious with more than enough room for socialising and spending time with family and loved ones. All complete with double glazing, central heating and very low maintenance meaning all year-round use is of no concern whatsoever. In fact, some prefer to spend the Winter months in their holiday lodges as it can offer a more festive feeling. All in all you get to experience luxury whenever you fancy it, especially in one of our sought after hot tub lodges!

Prime Location

Make the most of spending time in a prime holiday destination. Situated on the Devon and Cornwall border, Roadford Lake Lodges is an ideal spot with easy travel access into and out of nearby cities and beyond. Although we are in a prime countryside location, we’re only a 25-30 minute drive from the nearest coastline and within easy reach of wonderful towns and local amenities. With holiday home ownership comes more time to enjoy the places you love and explore all the hidden gems around your new home from home. Owning your own holiday lodge means that you get access to a prime holiday location all year round, even during peak seasons.


Owning your very on holiday home can be a cost-effective way to enjoy multiple holidays a year and if you know in advance when you’d like to visit, you could even rent your holiday home when you’re not using it. This means that overtime, it can start to pay for itself. Some of our owners buy as an investment prospect which is also a very viable option. Should you wish to find out more about potential returns when letting your holiday home out visit our Investment Opportunity page or speak to one of our advisors who will be more than happy to help.

Quality Family Time

One of the most valuable benefits of owning a holiday home is the opportunity to spend more quality time with family and friends. We are all guilty of simply letting life get in the way of spending quality time with our loved ones. It’s easily done with daily distractions and busy lives, but taking time out and escaping to your home from home allows you and your family to really connect, relax and unwind. It’s one of the few simple pleasures in life and when you have your own lodge to escape to, it often means you find more opportunities to enjoy time together.

Holiday homes are a perfect way for grandparents to spend time making memories with their grandchildren. They are a great middle ground in bringing together family members from various locations and offer extended families the chance to enjoy each other’s company too. And with dog friendly lodges available to buy here at Roadford Lake Lodges, the it is really is fun for the whole family!


As we mentioned above, each owner has their own personal experience when purchasing and using their holiday home here in Devon. This is why we offer a personal journey from the point of interest through to the final handover of keys. It’s also why we offer a wide range of lodges for sale that you can view and explore, ensuring you find the right holiday home for you.

There’s even the option to have a custom-built luxury lodge, whereby you can design the layout and choose the final specification of your holiday home! The options are endless, and a member of our team will of course be more than happy to help you find the right option for you.

Some of our more local owners visit each weekend and make the most of ownership every chance they get. Others buy as a sole investment option and rent their luxury lodge to holiday makers via a booking provider which generates them a healthy return on their investment. Whether you’re looking to become part of the community here at Roadford Lake Lodges or be an investment owner that perhaps visits a couple of weeks a year, we are here to guide you through the purchasing process and help you each step of the way.
