The summer holidays are over but that doesn’t mean you can’t think of your next holiday trip, right? Holiday lodges Bala can be a great investment, and will mean that you can escape everyday life, as often as you like, without forking out thousands for rented accommodation.
If you are thinking of buying a holiday home, now is the right time to do so. Take a look at our handy tips that will help you find the perfect home for you.
Use of Your Holiday Home
One of the first things you will need to consider is what are you planning to use your lodge for. If you are looking for a place at the weekend where you can recharge your batteries and a base where you can explore the unspoilt countryside or even glorious beaches, a second home for the summer months or an investment for rental income, then your decision will be determined on which holiday parks Snowdonia are better for your needs.
Think About Travel
After you have decided on the uses of your holiday home, next you will need to think about how far you are willing to travel. Although you may love the idea of a certain place, some of us don’t really want to face the trek in a packed car with the children if it’s just for the weekend. It is also a good idea to see what is in the surrounding areas of a park, such as beaches, sailing, golf, walking paths and culture. This will make your holiday experience a great one, knowing that there are things to do to keep the family entertained close by.
If you are a nature lover you may want to find out if the park has a David Bellamy Conservation Award which denotes bird, animal and plant life. At Pale Wood we are proud to have had this award for over 18 years, with spectacular wildlife in our picturesque private woodland.
Know the Park Rules
When looking for a holiday home it is a good idea to ask for a copy of your chosen parks site restrictions. This will avoid any arguments later on down the line especially as some parks aren’t particularly child or dog friendly.
Be Clear on Sub-letting
Be clear when you are buying your holiday home on the parks subletting policy. Some parks deny holiday home owners from sub-letting due to not knowing who is coming in and out of the park, as the area is meant to be safe for everyone that lives there, whereas others don’t mind and there is a particular procedure that needs to be carried out in advance.
Try before you buy
This might seem like an obvious idea but it’s best to book a week or at least longer than a weekend, in a lodge and make sure that you actually enjoy the experience before parting with your hard-earned cash. Lodge living isn’t for everyone but most of our holiday homeowners find it extremely relaxing and reinvigorating.
