Investing in a luxury holiday lodge at Maesmawr Farm Resort offers a great lifestyle, but could also be extremely profitable with UK staycations set to boom
Have you found a new appreciation for the natural beauty found closer to home over lockdown? You’re not the only one. New research has found that 83 percent of tourists would prefer to holiday in the UK than travel abroad this year, and this trend is set to continue into next year, bringing a huge boost to Britain’s hospitality and holiday sector.
With holidaymakers turning to socially distanced trips, now is the time to take advantage of the UK holiday market which generates over £9.3 billion every year in revenue.
Camping, glamping and lodge holidays have become a great option for people wishing to escape everyday life, and Maesmawr Farm Resort, near Caersws in mid-Wales, could be the perfect investment opportunity. A hidden gem, set within 27 acres of landscaped grounds, it offers a slice of escapism from the hustle and bustle of the usual tourist spots.

“Our quest for delivering a high-quality experience to our owners and guests is built on customer service and we treat people as we would wish to be treated ourselves,” enthuses Mark. “It's paying dividends, as our levels of repeat visitors grows year on year and our lodge owners continue recommending us to others.
“We’ve seen a strong rise in demand for luxury-lodge ownership and holidays in recent years, and industry experts are predicting the demand to continue to rise to a sustained level, at around 40 percent higher than it was previously.
“It certainly seems that UK domestic tourism is gearing up for a period of long-term growth, which is presenting strong opportunities for anyone wishing to enjoy a second home in a secure environment that effectively pays them to own it.”
