Boutique Resorts Lodges. It is a well known fact that the UK holiday industry is booming, with the rise of the “Staycation” often being mentioned in the media.
This is often put down to the current political and economical climate, along with other global issues. Whilst we agree with this in part, we feel that the UK holiday industry has been growing steadily for a very long time, and the owners and operators for Boutique Resorts been involved in it long enough to note that. Since the post war innovations of Sir Billy Butlin, UK holidays have evolved according to market trends. The introduction of overseas package holidays made an impact in the late 70’s and early 80’s but now the world is a smaller place, the novelty has worn off somewhat and this coupled with the way our industry has adapted to suit the needs and desires of the market has in our experience seen a steady upward trend in overall occupancy rates.
We aren’t saying people don’t want to go abroad anymore, of course they do, who wouldn’t? The weather is better and we all love a bit of sunshine, but we also appreciate a few short, easy breaks to supplement our main foreign holidays and many people still make holidaying in the UK their main holiday. What this means is that where several decades ago, people would flock to the seaside in their droves during school holidays and factory shut downs, leading to surges in visitor numbers at peak times and very low occupancy outside of those times, now we are seeing a more levelled out, all year round occupancy that is continuing to grow.
Times have changed, and for the better. We as a nation have become a little more sophisticated and appreciative of all that our wonderful island kingdom has to offer – all year round, be it coast, country or even city. No longer does a UK holiday have to be beside the seaside and no longer does the weather really matter. We are taking more of an interest in our own sub cultures, history and nature that can vary greatly from county to county. Just a few days away to relax and
rejuvenate, or to experience & explore is enough to grab some respite from our busy lives. Most people will now take several short breaks per year alongside their main holidays.
Maesmawr Farm Resort is a hidden gem in the heart of mystical Mid Wales, so if you’re looking for a slice of escapism then look no further – this is the perfect resort to restore and rejuvenate your senses in the gentle countryside of Montgomeryshire.

Boutique Resorts Lodges OPPORTUNITIES FOR INVESTMENT
Opportunities are limited to ensure sustainability, by resort and by number per year. The operators only permit a certain amount of opportunities per year and a maximum per resort, which can vary from resort to resort and year by year.
This is not sales ploy, it is a genuine long term business strategy.
HOW MUCH IS EACH INVESTMENT?
Again this varies from resort to resort but typically, the cost of the Lodges is based on rental returns, alongside other factors such as size, specification, location, market rate comparisons, demand etc. As a rule of thumb, working closely with Hoseasons the operators calculate what the net rental income of each lodge is likely to be after deducting all running costs and management charges, and then work out what this is 8% of. For example and for ease of illustration, if a lodge is likely to net £8000 p.a., then it would cost £100k, £16,000 p.a. £200k and so on.
The advantage of valuing lodges this way, is that when you come to sell your lodge, the operators use the same system: if after 5 years of rentals, your lodge income has risen from £14,400 to £18,000, then your lodge value has increased from £180,000 to £225,000. We have a range of lodge investment options from £45,000 to £240,000 that have the potential to generate net annual returns of £3,600 to £19,200.
