Buying a lodge
While providing you with somewhere to escape to when you wish, the purchase of a leisure lodge can also represent a sound financial investment, particularly if you are happy to sublet your lodge for others to holiday in it when you are not using it. Many parks welcome and even manage the rental arrangements for their lodge owners and some even operate schemes where they guarantee the minimum income, subject of course to the agreed availability of the lodge for rental.
