How A Holiday Home Can Help You Achieve Your New Years Resolutions

The start of a fresh New Year can feel as cleansing as the first page of a brand-new notebook. It is a chance to let go of all of our past regrets and really focus on the person we would like to be; and the goals that we want to achieve.

When it comes to New Year’s resolutions research has shown that there are a number of very popular options that we are all keen to include, which add up to an improved, healthier and more relaxed lifestyle, filled with the things we love to do and the people that we love to spend time with.

Buying a holiday home is perfect for helping you to achieve this aspired lifestyle, as it really is an investment in your leisure time. We’ve put together our ideas on how owning a holiday home in Cornwall can help you achieve five of the of the most popular New Year’s Resolutions for 2019.

Spend more time with loved ones

Buying a static caravan or holiday lodge means you have a dedicated place to escape your day to day lives and spend more time together. Leisure time in our own homes often gets eaten up by our household chores; or can be spent very separately as each family member pursues their own individual interests, clubs and friends. Holidays are a great way of lifting the whole family out of their normal routines so that you can enjoy some stress free, quality time in each other’s company and through owning a holiday home you can achieve that “away from it all” feeling, much more regularly. Peter Bull Resorts offers holiday caravans and lodges to suit all family shapes and sizes; and because our parks are dog friendly, nobody gets left out!

Exercise More

Whether you want to lose weight or just improve your fitness, one of the best pieces of advice to make this particular resolution a lasting one, is to find a sport or activity that you enjoy.  Cornwall has so many sports and activities to offer, you will be spoiled for choice.  The proximity of our static caravan parks to the sea, opens up many sports that you might not have considered before including kayaking, coasteering, paddle boarding and, of course, surfing!  If you prefer a gentler approach to exercise you could just enjoy the proximity of some great golf courses or increase your steps with a good old stomp along the South West Coast Path, which is quite literally on our doorstep.  Whatever activity you fancy, Cornwall could be your gateway to a much more active lifestyle and through buying a holiday home you will be making more time to enjoy your new-found passions.

Kayaking Cornwall
Learn a New Skill

Cornwall has a very rich and distinct culture which lends itself to plenty of hobbies which you could take up from the comfort of your new holiday home.  With its own, proud, Celtic language you could join a local class to learn the lingo or perhaps try your hand at Cornish wrestling, dancing or the singing of traditional sea shanties, so you are ready to join in at one of our many traditional festivals!  There are also lots of traditional recipes to master, so budding Masterchefs can work at perfecting their Cornish Pasties or Saffron Buns; or perhaps learn to forage and cook with some of our many natural ingredients including seaweed and shellfish!

Pasty Making
Spend More time on Personal Wellbeing

If your aim for 2019 is to give yourself a little bit more TLC, a holiday home in Cornwall is perfect for you.  By buying a static caravan or holiday home by the coast you are giving yourself the best chance at dedicating more time to relaxing and spending time with those who are important, but also investing in “me” time.  Whether your idea of relaxation is curling up with a good book, going for a nice walk or sitting in the sun with a glass of wine, your new lifestyle can offer it all.  Mental Health Charity: Mind say that “…spending time in green space or bringing nature into your everyday life can benefit your mental and physical wellbeing.”  Our holiday parks are all in beautiful rural settings, surrounded by countryside and just a stone’s throw from the Ocean so it is very easy to immerse yourself in the natural surroundings as soon as you arrive.

Save Money

It may sound counter-intuitive that making a large value purchase will help to save money but in some instances it really can!  If you are considering buying a second home of the more traditional bricks and mortar variety, a static caravan could save you thousands in stamp fees, council tax, solicitor’s fees and ongoing upkeep.  It will also reduce the amount that you spend on holidays in the years to come, as your accommodation is all, already paid for. 

It is possible to earn money from your holiday home too by holiday letting any vacant periods that you might have available.  See our subletting advice for more information.

If you are ready for a new you for 2019, let us help by showing you what we can offer.  You can try out your new lifestyle and get £1,000 off the cost of purchase by booking an Ownership Experience break at any one of our three parks for just £150 for three nights.  If you decide to purchase, we will also refund the cost of the break. Breaks must be booked by the end of January to be eligible for the £1,000 voucher. Call 01637 852000 or contact us using the form below.
