Holiday Lodges give owners plenty more space for luxury touches and homely comforts

What about Holiday Lodges?

Holiday lodges, often referred to as chalets, represent a step up in luxury and comfort compared to traditional static caravans.

These lodges are constructed on-site from two separate halves, providing owners with spacious living areas and bedrooms. With features such as porches, utility entrance rooms, full-sized baths, and breakfast bars in the kitchen, holiday lodges offer a premium holiday living experience.

Most manufacturers in the industry offer both single unit static caravans and twin unit lodges, making them a convenient option for buyers exploring their choices. To help you get started with you search for a Holiday Lodge, our top recommendations are Willerby (check out the Pinehurst & Mapleton), Swift (we love the Edmonton & Toronto) & ABI (you can’t go wrong with the Kielder).

Willerby Bespoke – Whilst not necessarily a fully bespoke manufacturing service, Willerby also have a separate range of Lodges that can be customised to suit your additional needs and preferences.

We’ve worked with Willerby to produce a number of fully-customised Acorn Lodges from their Bespoke range, for our customers. These have turned out brilliantly and we would be happy to help you customise your own to site here at Sarnfaen. 


We’re grateful & proud of our partnership with Salop Leisure, the largest caravan dealership in the Midlands
