Fully insulated, timber lodge buildings can be great for business. A family in Kirby Mallory saw the potential to utilise some of their land to house four luxury lodges to let out as holiday accommodation. They chose The Hideout House Co to design and build the four lodges, two of which sleep 2-people and two 4-people.
The Hideout House Co. utilise an off-site construction system, prefabricating the building in their workshops for delivery to the site by low loader with hi-ab crane. Prior to the building’s arrival on-site the foundation system needs to be prepared, and then the lorry will lift the lodge into position. The only work needing to be carried out on-site is building the veranda and connecting the lodges to the mains supplies. This work can typically be completed within a few days, so you can start accepting guests within the week, As well as supplying the building, The Hideout House Co. supply the furniture. This really is a ‘plug-in and play’ solution!
Each lodge features a shower room and kitchenette. The larger lodges that sleep four also have a living-dining area in addition to the sleeping accommodation. These pods also include a hot tub, which adds to their list of unique selling points.
Complying with the Mobile Home & Caravan Act
The Hideout House Co. lodges are designed and built to comply with the Mobile Home & Caravan Act. This allows them to be built without full planning permission. It also offers benefits in relation to building control and VAT.
The Hideout House Co’s customers chose to market their lodges through Hoseasons Bouja collection. Their lodges were added to the collection in January and have since achieved 60-70% occupancy rates. Even Hoseasons are impressed how quickly the site has taken off. Clearly, guests are looking for something more unique than a hotel or caravan but offering more luxury than a bell tent or yurt.
Cedar lodges from The Hideout House Co. start at £20,450 ex-works. To learn more call 01865 858 982 or take a look at their website.
