Designed for holiday living, wooden lodges are both attractive and comfortable. Many have underfloor heating or a wood burner that keeps the lodges cosy at all times of year.
Most people like the feeling of being surrounded by wood, it’s naturally insulating and a holiday home made of wood can be fitted with all necessary items to allow for plenty of storage space, a fitted kitchen and fitted wardrobes in bedrooms. The addition of colourful rugs enhances the homely appearance. Add a wood burner and a pine lodge or log cabin feels snug and comforting.
There are usually chairs, a table and sometimes a hot tub on the decking or veranda of a pine lodge. It can be a good place to sit and relax outdoors. There may be a garden or just communal landscaped gardens if the lodge is part of a holiday park.
Dog owners tend to like pine lodges because they are easy to keep clean, just sweep out any mud or debris that your pet might bring in. The Dorset countryside is simply wonderful for pet-friendly self-catering holidays, there are walks galore through some of the best landscapes in southern England.
