Choosing The Perfect Leisure Lodge 

There are a number of advantages to owning a lodge in Kent and leisure home living has never been more popular than it is today. Holiday parks provide a peaceful and tranquil place to stay, and leisure lodges will open your eyes to a new vision of carefree living. So, if you’re considering purchasing a second property or downsizing your home, the idea of owning a holiday lodge is undoubtedly worthwhile exploring. 


Luxurious lodges come in all shapes and sizes these days and finding a leisure lodge that perfectly meets all of your individual needs is surprisingly easy when you turn to the best holiday parks in Kent. Should you be interested in purchasing a holiday lodge and you’re trying to choose the perfect home away from home, be sure to consider the following. 


How many bedrooms do you require?


Of course, when you’re choosing a leisure lodge, you need to consider how many bedrooms you’re likely to need. Commonly, most lodges will have two bedrooms; a master bedroom with a double bed and a spare bedroom with two twin beds, and this tends to be ideal for couples who are going to be inviting family and friends to stay with them. You may find that even though a lodge only has two bedrooms, it actually sleeps six adults, so consider whether you would be happy to use the living area as an additional sleeping space if required. 


How many bathrooms would you like?


In addition to thinking about how many bedrooms you need, also consider how many bathrooms you’d ideally like to have. Usually, when a leisure lodge has two bedrooms, it will have two bathrooms too, however, some will have one main bathroom and one en-suite instead. Also, be sure to think about whether a bathtub or shower would be most suitable for you, thankfully many luxury lodges will have both of these washing facilities. 


Do you have a layout preference?


Not all leisure lodges will have the same layout and this will influence the look and feel of the whole space. Take something like the Pemberton Serena, for example, this lodge is 42ft x 13ft and it has an open plan living space at one end of the lodge and the bedrooms at the other. However, the Pemberton Rivendale is 36ft x 22ft and the layout is very different. It can be beneficial to visit a holiday park and view some different layouts in person, this will help you to decide which type of lodge would best suit you. 


Are you interested in a private decked area?


Many who purchase a leisure lodge will be keen to have a private outdoor space that they can use during the spring and summer months, yet not all lodges offer this. Consider whether you think you would use an outdoor area when staying in your lodge. You may find that you have the option to add wood decking to your leisure lodge for an additional cost and this may be worth exploring so you don’t have to compromise. 


Where would you like to be situated?


It is beneficial to take a look at the holiday park map before making your final decision about which lodge you would like to purchase. This map will enable you to see where the lodge is situated on the site and you can make sure that this is suitable for you. For example, if you would like to be on the outskirts of the park with a woodland view, make sure you double-check the leisure lodge you’re looking at doesn’t have a more central location.
