What to look for when finding a holiday home for two
If you are looking for more time for the two of you, what could be better than a little cosy nook to escape to whenever you want a chance to reconnect or enjoy a break from well-oiled work week routines. Snuggle up on the sofa watching your favourite film, have a romantic meal at the dining table while you natter about anything and everything and explore the local area, making amazing memories that you'll cherish forever. With our pointers, you'll know exactly what to look for when searching for a holiday home that's perfect for two. We have lodges, caravans and luscious holiday homes for you to have the keys to; and call your own.
Nothing beats sneaking off to your own little haven with your partner for an impromptu holiday. With your very own caravan, spontaneous breaks away are easy to achieve, whether you've got a fortnight or just a couple of days to enjoy.
A two bedroom caravan is the perfect match for couples looking for somewhere to have a breather from everyday stresses. Sticking to two bedrooms means you'll maximise on space in your living room and kitchen; and will find options where the master bedroom has been given a lot more love. Look for extra large master suites with dressing areas and en-suites to make sure you've got the perfect setting for lazy mornings and breakfast in bed.
A larger master bedroom will also give you more storage so you can leave any non-necessities behind, ready for the next time you visit. With less bags to pack it will be easier to jump in the car and be relaxing in your home from home in next to no time.
To get the ultimate homely feel and a real sense of comfort, look out for caravans with freestanding furniture, although it takes up more floor space, with only two people to accommodate you can afford to look for the most sumptuous of sofas to sink back into. When you don't have little, sticky fingers to worry about, you can also look for caravans with a real sense of style. Whether it is geometric style shelving, pendant lighting or a restaurant style dining setting, there are plenty of options designed exclusively with grown ups in mind.
For those couples who like to take a bit of luxurious me time, a lodge might be just the thing. With a larger second bedroom, two bathrooms and often a sofa bed too, you'll have space to breathe and be able to play host, whenever you fancy a bit of company from family or friends.
Breakfast bars and kitchen islands encourage companion cooking; and whoever is off duty can just reach into a handy wine fridge to top up the pre-dinner drinks. Foodies should seek out kitchens with range style cookers or larder cupboards, which you can fill up with local treats to savour together.
Our lodges all give an extra bit of attention to the master bedroom, making it your number one place to relax after exploring. With an en-suite, perhaps a walk in wardrobe and large dressing area, you'll have yourself a little haven for an early night and a great start to the day.
The lounge areas in a luxury lodge are specifically designed with comfort in mind. With space for the plumpest of sofas, a coffee table to plop your magazines on and perhaps a cheery electric fire to gather round in the colder months. Seek out a lodge with a fireside chair for the perfect place to curl up with your pooch by your side, chatting with your other half about anything that pops to mind!
With wraparound decking luxury lodges give couples the chance to bring the outside in. Push open sliding doors in the summer to let in the breeze; or relax on the decking with an al fresco meal. With plenty of space you could even invite your neighbours round for a drink and a bite to eat, whilst you swap tips on all the best local places to discover.
When looking for a holiday home with your significant other, it's not just about the property itself. You want to find your happy place!
