Weekends away have always been popular and lots of people like to make the most of the days they have off of work. Even once they have retired, many will still enjoy having a long weekend away somewhere and taking a break from their normal daily routine. Even a short weekend getaway can be a brilliant de-stressor and there are so many advantages to spending some time in the British countryside surrounded by nature. 


If you enjoy weekends away and you regularly book somewhere to stay on a Friday and Saturday night, it is undeniably worthwhile considering purchasing your own park home as a weekend retreat. Having a leisure lodge that you can escape to whenever you want a weekend away is always beneficial and we have put together a list of five reasons why you should purchase a park home for your future weekend getaways. 


When you have your own park home, you will be able to go on holiday whenever you want to. If you have a spare weekend, you can simply get in the car and travel to your lodge, and you won’t have the hassle of booking accommodation for your getaways. Even if plans get cancelled last-minute, you can spontaneously drive to your lodge instead and enjoy a weekend in the countryside. What’s more, you won’t have to save up lots of money to be able to go on multiple weekends away during the year either. 


It couldn’t be easier to plan a trip away in your park home and you will have everything you need in your lodge for an amazing weekend. You can keep as much as you’d like in your lodge too and lots of people choose to stock their cupboards with non-perishable foods, preventing them from having to go shopping every time they stay in their park home. Not to mention, you can even treat your lodge as a second home and keep a selection of clothes here, enabling you to be prepared for all weather conditions and any activities you may plan during your stay. 


Entertaining people takes on a whole new meaning when you own a holiday park home and you will have a beautiful lodge that you can share with family and friends. Often, park homes will have spacious open-plan living areas and spare bedrooms, so you will have plenty of space for your guests to stay and it will be easier than ever before to spend some quality time with your loved ones. No matter what you choose to do during your weekends aways, you will cherish the memories you make with family and friends whilst staying at your lodge. 


After a busy week at work, nothing is better than escaping to the countryside and you can easily do so when you have a holiday lodge. Spending a couple of days in your own haven of peace and tranquillity surrounded by nature is a brilliant way to recharge your batteries, and a park home is the perfect place for a relaxing break away from the real world. You will be surprised by just how refreshed you feel after a quiet weekend in your lodge and once the working week is done, you can simply return to the holiday park and relax all over again. 


Lots of people don’t realise that some holiday parks are open all year round and you will have access to your park home 365 days a year. So, in addition to being able to spend your weekends during the summer at your lodge enjoying the sunshine, you can also cosy up by the fire during the winter months too. You can experience all of the seasons surrounded by nature and you can enjoy as many breaks away as you’d like throughout the year. You could even spend your Christmas and New Year’s holiday in your park home if you wanted to.
