6 Benefits of Owning a Holiday Home in Scotland
Holiday home ownership is at an all time high with more people than ever before choosing to invest in luxury lodges and static caravans. We have three stunning holiday parks located in some of the most picturesque regions of Scotland including Perthshire, Inverness and Dumfries.
In this blog, we're going to take a look at six benefits of holiday home ownership in Scotland.
1. Go On Holiday Whenever You Want
The biggest appeal of holiday home ownership is quite simply being able to get away whenever the mood takes you. All the associated hassle of organising a holiday simply disappears meaning you no longer have to spend time trawling for the cheapest holiday prices or arguing over destinations. You don’t need travel insurance, a passport, vaccinations, language skills and depending on the location travel time will be at a minimum allowing you to enjoy every minute of your holiday. Most holiday home owners also leave plenty of their belongings in their lodges at all times to save on packing and unlike regular caravan holidays there’s no need to go through the arduous towing process.
2. Save Money
The most important thing to remember when purchasing a holiday home in Scotland is that it’s a long term investment which can eventually pay for itself. Our prices start from as little as £12k and we offer a wide range of finance options depending on your personal circumstances. Deposits start from as little as 10% of the purchase price and payments are fixed for the duration of the loan. If you’re thinking of selling your regular house in order to downsize and buy a permanent holiday home, our home exchange service means we could organise a quick cash sale for you. Static caravans and lodges are very cost efficient to run in terms of energy, so your ongoing costs are kept at a minimum too.
3. Make Money
A recent study by specialist broker Holiday Let Mortgages revealed that holiday home landlords can earn up to three times the annual income of a buy-to-let investor via subletting. Our caravan parks are located in areas that are popular for tourists which generates good quality, high tariff bookings all year around. You are free to organise the subletting of your home yourself or leave it all to us. We can take care of the entire process from the marketing and advertising right through to looking after the guests and tidying up after them. Tourism is set to bring in around £257bn a year to the UK economy by 2025 so there has never been a better time to invest in a holiday home.
4. Stunning Locations
Our holiday parks are located in stunning surroundings with so much to do you’ll want to come back time and time again. You can enjoy the very best Scotland has to offer from the stunning national parks and heather covered mountains to the world renowned championship golf courses and famous whisky distilleries. The parks themselves are located in quiet countryside locations giving you the chance to step away from your day to day life and really relax, but all three are conveniently close enough to local amenities. Visiting a particular area regularly means you can really get to know it inside out and enjoy Scotland’s rich heritage.
5. Be Part of a Community
We pride ourselves on not only creating holiday parks in some of the most sought after areas in Scotland, but creating communities too. Our parks are full of friendly, like-minded people who all want to enjoy the relaxed environment of rural Scotland together and you can even choose your own plot. The parks are also very family friendly, with many owners regularly bringing their kids or grandkids along for a holiday and your pets are more than welcome too. We also have private bars on-site as well as regular social events throughout the year giving you plenty of chances to socialise with neighbours.
6. Live in Luxury
Even today, there seems to be a common misconception that holiday parks and static caravans are “down-market” but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The holiday homes we have for sale feature everything you would expect from a modern house with large en-suite bathrooms, spacious double bedrooms, stylish fitted kitchens, double glazing, central heating and some models even come with a hot tub! Viewing is highly recommended as people are very often amazed by the amount of space available as well as the elegant design. This all comes at a fraction of the cost of a regular house allowing you to live a luxury lifestyle in your home away from home.
Owning your own holiday home in Scotland can truly transform your lifestyle and offers a cost-effective way to enjoy holidays all year round as well as a steady source of income while you're not using it.
