Holiday Homes: Find your ideal retreat in North Devon


Luxury holiday lodges in a beautiful parkland setting a new opportunity in Devon, where you can opt for a hot tub!

Whether you’re looking for a personal holiday home, or a profitable holiday let investment, The Retreat at Romansleigh – a new development of luxury lodges – celebrates everything Devon has to offer, within 13 acres of beautiful parkland.

Situated near the character market town of South Molton, often referred to as ‘the gateway to Exmoor National Park’, The Retreat offers breathtaking surroundings that exemplify the unique beauty of North Devon landscapes.

The exclusive development offers a choice of different holiday home styles, including The Tuscany, The County Retreat and The Willow. Fitted out to the highest standard, and with the option of adding private leisure facilities, such as hot tubs, swim spas, steam cabins and saunas, The Retreat offers you your own little piece of luxury set among some of the UK’s most dynamic scenery. Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty cover an impressive 170 square kilometres of the coastal landscape.

The surrounding area has something to offer everyone. South Molton itself is home to some favourite eateries, tea rooms and small independent shops. You will also find a broad range of outdoor pursuits available locally, including horse riding, rock climbing, quad biking and surfing. For those who are looking to enjoy slightly quieter hobbies, you will find endless country walks, photography opportunities and artistic programmes.

The Retreat as a personal holiday home

Growing global uncertainty and a weak pound mean that as many as two-thirds of Brits are planning ‘staycations’ rather than holidays abroad this year. With UK tourism currently estimated to be worth around £127 billion each year, and expected to grow to £257 billion by 2025, now is a very good time to invest in a UK holiday property.

Decorated to your tastes, and offering all your usual home comforts, a luxury holiday lodge at The Retreat offers a home-from-home that enables you to get the most out of every weekend and holiday. What’s more, as holiday lodges are exempt from stamp duty, you won’t need to worry about the recent stamp duty hikes that apply to other types of holiday homes, making them a great financial option.

A holiday lodge offers an attractive, yet low maintenance, option for your new holiday home. Situated on an exclusive development, you can feel confident that your property will remain safe and secure when not in use.

On-site facilities provided for lodge owners include a club bar, games room, children’s play area and landscaped recreational spaces perfect for outdoor games.

The Retreat as a holiday let investment

With the current economic climate presenting many challenges for traditional financial investments and increased pressure for residential landlords, many investors are looking for new strategies.

UK holiday lets offer a great option. Exemption from stamp duty, offering a range of management packages and providing a guaranteed return of eight percent on specified lodges, The Retreat is an investment opportunity that delivers impressive results. What’s more, as a holiday let investor, you will also be able to enjoy six weeks’ personal use of your lodge as part of your investment package. The example used for the figures here is the Tuscany, made by Pathfinder.
