Location is very important when you’re planning a holiday.

We have lodge holidays available in the most beautiful settings that the UK has to offer. Whether you’re looking for a holiday on one of our coastlines, countrysides, forests or off the beaten track. All of our lodge holidays are specially chosen to have a unique charm which will have a great appeal, depending on what kind of break you’re looking for. Your party size will also reflect on the location of your holiday. For couples, a snug cabin in the middle of a forest could tick every box, a group of hens may prefer something nearer a city where nightlife can be found.
Choosing the right lodge for your lodge holidays
Consider the important matters to you – Are you bringing pets? Would you prefer a family friendly location? Would you like sea views? Does there need to be Wi-Fi? Maybe you’d like your lodge to have its own private hot tub? The amount of choice available is incredible and this means that something really doesn’t need to give; you can have the perfect holiday without compromise.
For a couple, or small family Furrows Farmstead Lodge (above) is a great choice.

The final preparations for lodge holidays
Correct planning and preparation before you arrive at your lodge will reduce the chance of their being any stress or upset. Make everything go without a hitch by taking everything you need with you, this means that you will be free to relax and won’t have to waste time tracking down local supermarkets or shops for those mundane essentials and can really get the most of your holiday instead.
• Towels, bedding and bed linen (if not already provided)
• Candles / tea lights (not essential but great for a romantic atmosphere in the tub)
• CD player, MP3 player or smartphone for music
• Sandals or flip-flops (for walking to and from the tub)
• Champagne (if more bubbles are needed for a celebratory weekend!)
• Walking boots
• Beach wear
• Tea bags, sugar, milk and coffee
• Breakfast cereals
• Pen (for writing postcards)
1. Forward Food Planning: If you’re staying for longer than a weekend then more groceries and additional essentials may be needed, however, who wants to do a weekly shop during their holiday? A great tip is to book an online food shop the day before you leave home and have your shopping delivered to your lodge the following day. If you are staying on a site rather than a single property then you may need to check with the site manager before doing this.
2. Baby and Doggy Essentials: When properties state that they’re baby or dog friendly, this will generally mean that the property will be safe for them – not necessarily fully equipped or lots of fun. For your baby you may need to check what’s actually included; do they have a high chair? Cot? Bouncer chair? Baby monitor? For dogs you will likely need to bring their own beds and bowls with you. It is an idea to also bring dog activities such as a Kong Toy to prevent boredom and provide stimulation so that you are able to fully relax.
Whatever sort of break you’re looking for, lodge holidays are certainly something you should consider. Getting away from it all in a luxurious, spacious cabin may be exactly what you need!
