As ‘staycations’ continue to grow in popularity holiday homes are becoming a viable option for many families. They offer the opportunity to spend time together throughout the year and a place to escape from the stresses of daily life.
Whilst there are numerous benefits to owning a holiday home, especially in Dorset, we’ve narrowed it down to our top 5 reasons why we think owning a holiday home is a wonderful investment.
1. Spectacular landscape and location
Dorset is the perfect place to own a holiday home thanks to it stunning scenery and convenient location. Just 3 hours from London, it boasts the perfect mix of countryside and coast with views to rival even the most exotic of holiday destination.
The Jurassic Coast adorns the length of the county providing an abundance of beautiful beaches, coastal walks and natural landmarks to explore. You wont get stuck for things to do during your time here, as there is something something new and exciting to discover around every corner.
If having an area of outstanding natural beauty right on your doorstep hasn’t been enough to convince you to make the move, the county experiences some of the warmest weather in the UK, so you can really enjoy the summer months.
2. Flexibility and convenience
One of the best things about owning your own holiday home is the flexibility it enables. Say goodbye to booking accommodation months in advance during the height of the season and simply turn up at the drop of hat. You can choose when you want to go and how long you want to go for, even if it’s just for a quick weekend away or a last minute break. You won’t even need to spend time packing suitcases or arranging the car as you can leave everything you need at the caravan ready for your next visit!

Share your holidays with your loved ones, or let your extended family make use of the space when you are unable to.

4. Luxury interiors
Gone are the days when a caravan holiday entailed cramped family getaways in a dark and dingy caravan. Static caravans today are light, bright and contain all of the latest ‘mod cons’ you would expect from a luxury home. State of the art kitchens and spacious dining and living areas help create the perfect space for entertaining and socialising and large comfortable bedrooms provide the perfect retreat after a busy day. Depending on the terms of purchase, it is sometimes possible to negotiate inclusion of soft furnishings, so you walk straight into a fully furnished unit without having the hassle of decorating!
5. Fantastic facilities
Holiday homes are typically located on holiday parks many of which boast a suite of facilities for your enjoyment. This means you can fill a day with exciting activities without even having to leave the confines of the site. Enjoy a relaxed morning swimming in the pool before dining with new found friends for lunch! What’s more many of these facilities are often included within the parks annual site fees so they wont even cost you a penny!
