Peace & Tranquility in Your Home Away from Home

The UK holiday industry has been turned on its head this year with the decision that Britain will be leaving the European Union.

It is expected that this will have a dramatic impact on the holiday preferences of British inhabitants, with unfavourable exchange rates and international uncertainty resulting in a significant rise in ‘staycations’.

Some companies are already very well placed to capitalise on this, one of which is Darwin Escapes who own 19 luxury holiday resorts in the UK. We took a look at one of the latest additions to their ever growing portfolio – Hawkchurch Resort & Spa in Devon.

One of the great things about Hawkchurch Resort is that it has been created with the older generation in mind, perfect for the Silversurfers audience. This is reflected in the location, with the resort being located in the midst of the tranquil Devon countryside.

It is also reflected in the facilities which have been rated as being up to a 5 star Gold standard by Visit England. These facilities include a breathtaking hydrotherapy pool which has been designed to ease those stubborn aches and pains, as well as encouraging relaxation. There is no need to worry about noisy children here, with no under 16s allowed in the pool. Other facilities on-site include the Ezina Spa where holiday guests can take advantage of a range of treatments.

You will also have access to the Beeches Restaurant which is without question one of the finest restaurants in the area being run by the team behind the 2 AA Rosette Winning Oakhouse Hotel. Not many holiday resorts can claim to have quality of these standards.

The same high standards are applied to both the holiday accommodation and also the lodges for sale here. Indeed, the Darwin Escapes team is expecting that more and more Brits will now decide to go down the holiday home ownership route on the back of Brexit, as owning a lodge can provide holiday makers with the opportunity to enjoy a lifetime of holidays at no additional cost without being concerned about organising international travel or dealing with fluctuating exchange rates.

The same facilities which are available to holiday guests at the resort are also open to owners at no additional cost other than those which are covered by the annual site fees bringing, additional long term savings. There is no doubt that anyone deciding to go down the ownership route here is thinking long term, but it is without doubt an investment worth considering particular for those of retirement age with a little bit more spare time on their hands.
