"My wife and I have owned a caravan at Longlands for over 17 years, and although we have seen many changes, the park feels just the same as it did all those years ago. The park is well maintained and cared for by the staff and we look forward to every visit."

Top Ten Advantages of Owning A Holiday Home:
Tags: -
Have you ever dreamt about owning your own luxury holiday home here in Great Britain? There are so many advantages to owning your own little getaway, especially if it is situated in one of the most beautiful areas of the country: The Lake District. Owning your own retreat comes with a whole host of benefits for you and your family. There may be some you’ve never even considered so we thought we’d write down a top ten list just for you!

1. A Home from Home 

Having your own holiday home means that you can get away from it all, any time you want! 

You have a permanent holiday spot that’s always ready for a short weekend here or a week there. No more time spent looking for deals online, you can fully focus on the job at hand – relaxing! 

The added benefit of having your own holiday home means that packing is a thing of the past.  You can leave your essentials in your holiday lodge and never worry about forgetting your phone charger or toothbrush again!

2. New Areas to Explore

Soak up the culture of your new area and see what it has to offer. Most parks, like Longlands, are near villages, towns and cities which gives you the perfect opportunity to explore new areas of the country. 

Why not go and see a live music or show, explore walks, local exhibitions, museums and historic sites such as castles or monuments?

If you decide to make Longlands your retreat, then you have a wealth of sites available to you. Duddon Sands is located nearby, as well as Coniston Water and Grizedale Forest being ones that you will definitely want to explore!

3. New Way Of Living

Make the most of your weekend and holiday time to indulge in things that you enjoy but never seem to get around to doing at home: i.e. art, wine tasting, crafts, writing, cooking, baking, sewing, music, gaming. 

Longlands is situated near the medieval village of Cartmel, famous for its traditional Lakeland inns, tea rooms and gourmet restaurants. Visit L’Enclume if you fancy a 2 Michelin star fine dining experience, or indulge in what Cartmel is famous for - its sticky toffee pudding!

Go on, why not taste a new way of living! 

4. Quality Time With Family 

With all that the Great Outdoors has to offer and no demanding schedule, you can spend your leisure time making memories with those special little people. 

You might find yourself taking them to the onsite playground or taking your family out to a day at Cartmel Races. Whatever it is you choose to do, quality time will definitely be had. 

5. Community

Becoming a luxury holiday home owner means more than just finding the perfect escape for you. You’ll be joining a friendly community when joining a park, making lifelong friends. 

If you join the Longlands community, you will be given a discounted membership to the bowling green and games facilities which include tennis, basketball, netball and 5 a side football in the nearby village of Beckside. You would also receive a Holker Privilege Pass, entitling you to benefits as part of the Holker Estate ‘family’ such as access to the magnificent Holker Hall and its award-winning grounds.

6. New Activities To Enjoy

When you own a holiday home this is also your chance to try out activities and hobbies you’ve not had chance to do due to life being so busy. Why not give cycling or hiking a go? At Longlands caravan park cycle paths and trails are just a stone throw away and waiting for you.

If you fancy venturing out of the park, the surrounding area has much to offer. From racing, events and fairground fun at Cartmel to visiting the World of Beatrix Potter, you will never be bored!

7. Stress & Guilt Free Holidays

When owning your own holiday home, you don’t have to feel guilty when spending your day relaxing with a good book. You can truly be at ease, away from it all and also know that your family are as happy and content as you are, giving you that stress and guilt free holiday you’ve been craving.

The picturesque Cumbrian landscape also helps with destressing. Why not take your book to Coniston Water, enjoy the water and hire a boat?

8. No Fury Friends Left Behind 

If you have a fur-baby, finding a kennel you’re happy with and isn’t expensive for your pet can be stressful. But what if you could take them with you? The whole family can enjoy a holiday relaxing and exploring the local area around your luxury holiday home. Here at Longlands, we have lots of lovely dog walking routes in the surrounding areas which will keep your furry friends happy. 

9. More Frequent Holidays

Due to less travel time, not having to pay every time you visit and not having to book, you can have as many holidays as you choose! Our ownership community often spend the 6-week school summer holidays at their home away from home, spending time together and relaxing, while enjoying the facilities and events taking place around the local area.

10. Holidaying in the UK 

After the low-cost airline boom, people are finally returning to holidaying in the UK.  The novelty of travelling abroad, stuck in tiny seats and dealing with the stress of airports has become a lot less attractive. 

On the flip side, driving up to a holiday home set in glorious British countryside certainly has its benefits. No airport dramas, no passport, no luggage limits; you can pack as you please and arrive when it suits! The perfect start to what a truly relaxing break should be!
