Some might argue that holiday lodges can be enjoyed all-year round, which is perfectly true, but there are undoubtedly special times of the year when this type of vacation is elevated by the weather and associated atmosphere - and Christmas is one of them.
It might feel too warm and sunny at the moment to contemplate the festive season, but if you do want to enjoy Christmas in your own holiday lodge then there is no time like the present. A magical time of year to go on holiday, staying in your own lodge is even better as it means no worrying about booking and the freedom to stay for as long as you wish.
Depending on the type of holiday lodge you own or will soon own, you could invite family and friends to join you for the party season. A 4-bedroom lodge that sleeps 8, such as this one in Rhoscolyn in North Wales that boasts coastal walks on its doorstep and an open plan large kitchen for entertaining indoors, is perfect for making the most of the fun times. You could enjoy a very merry Christmas and see in the New Year, surrounded by fantastic company, activities and scenery.
Alternatively, you could simply enjoy a quiet retreat with a loved one or close-knit group. Lodges such as PEC Hamilton Limefit 2-bedroom lodge in Windermere in the Lake District is ideal for this purpose as you’re surrounded by activities if you fancy braving the elements, including pony trekking, fishing and fell walks, but can just relax and unwind, watch Christmas TV and eat festive goodies, in this beautiful spot instead if you so choose.
Good mix of the indoors and outdoors
Holiday lodges nowadays are often located within fantastic holiday parks that offer endless amenities as well as a fantastic deal to do nearby, giving you the best of both worlds - the ability to stay in the lodge and take in the views or maybe venture to an indoor swimming pool to burn off a mince pie as well as the choice to do more such as a brisk walk along the beach on Christmas morning perhaps. Lodges like Abersoch Chalet in Gwynedd present both options, for example, and this particular chalet boasts 3 bedrooms and an open plan kitchen to make those times when you want to stay indoors more than comfortable.
