If you have been contemplating buying a lodge in Essex for a while now and the pros finally outweigh the cons, choosing the right location for your new leisure lodge is crucial. There are a number of different holiday parks in the Essex area nowadays, many of which have luxury lodges available to buy, and choosing the wrong park can result in you not enjoying your new lodge the way you should. 


Before you make any final decisions about your holiday lodge, make sure you take the time to carefully consider whether a location is really right for you. Remember, popular holiday destinations don’t necessarily suit everyone and you may find that somewhere off the beaten path is better for you. So, when you’re deciding whether a location is right for your lodge, be sure to think about the following; 


How easy it is to get to the holiday park 


When you plan on spending a lot of time at your luxury lodge, ensuring it is easy to get to is key. In addition to bearing in mind how far you’re willing to travel to get to a holiday park, also think about how you’re going to be travelling to the park too. 


Finding a leisure lodge that is well-located in terms of motorways and main roads can make travelling to and from the holiday park much less stressful. Even if you plan on driving to your new lodge, having different modes of public transport locally can be really useful too. It may even be worth looking into local taxi companies as well. 


What your hobbies and interests are 


In addition to being a place to relax and unwind, your holiday lodge will also be a base for you to explore the local area and everything that it has to offer. So, when you’re choosing a location for your new lodge, it is essential to take into account your hobbies and interests, and how you usually like to spend your free time. 


Whether you enjoy walking around heritage sites or shopping in independent boutiques, for example, ensuring that there are suitable attractions in the local area is really important. Ideally, you should be able to fill your days with things you love doing and you shouldn’t have to travel far in order to do so. Also, think about whether you’d prefer to be located in the countryside or on the coast, this will influence what your surroundings are like. 


How big the holiday park is 


The size of the park your luxury lodge will be located on can be easy to overlook, but if you’re searching for some peace and quiet, you won’t want to have lots of other park visitors on your doorstep. So, always look at a park map and check where your new lodge will be situated.


Many are drawn to the village lifestyle of luxury holiday parks and if you’re keen to join a community of like-minded people, consider how many other lodges there are on-site. You may find that a park is too small for you to be able to get the full experience that you were hoping for and you won’t have many neighbours to get to know. 


What facilities are available on-site


Not all holiday parks are the same and you will find that the facilities and amenities on-site differ quite considerably from one park to another. Whilst you might not necessarily require all facilities when you have your own lodge, others will be essential to your enjoyment. 


It isn’t uncommon for luxury lodge owners to need things like laundry facilities, however, you may be more interested in finding a holiday park that has a children’s play area or even a swimming pool. When you’re looking at facilities, remember to take into consideration whether any potential future needs can be met. Don’t forget to double-check the security on-site too.
