Learn how to coast in life with a home from home

The Herald on Sunday - Sunday Herald Life - - TRAVEL FEATURE -

OWN­ING a hol­i­day home can com­pletely change your life­style, open­ing up the pos­si­bil­ity of un­lim­ited hol­i­days or week­end breaks, and tak­ing the has­sle out of es­cap­ing with your fam­ily or friends.

The hard­est part is de­cid­ing where to buy, as there a host of stun­ning lo­ca­tions in our part of the world.

Park Re­sorts are now of­fer­ing an ex­tended 12-month owner’s sea­son at their parks at Sandy­lands in the west and Eye­mouth in the east.

Sandy­lands en­joys a great lo­ca­tion on the Ayr­shire coast, al­low­ing easy ac­cess to some of Scot­land’s finest golf cour­ses and is con­ve­niently placed for hop­ping on the ferry for a trip to Ar­ran, whilst Eye­mouth in Ber­wick­shire of­fers lovely views of the fish­ing port from where it gets its name, and is ide­ally placed for a daytrip to Ber­wick-upon-Tweed or even Ed­in­burgh.

If you’re look­ing for a lit­tle bit of lux­ury, then Ayr­shire’s only five-star hol­i­day park, Ben­nane Shore, is the place for you.

Fam­ily owned for over 30 years, Ben­nane Shore of­fers splen­did ser­vice with a per­sonal touch as well as stun­ning un­in­ter­rupted coastal views across the sea to Ailsa Craig and the Isle of Ar­ran.

With a 12-month open sea­son, a visit to the park is a plea­sure at any time of year.

The range of fa­cil­i­ties on-site are sec­ond to none, in­clud­ing an in­fin­ity swim­ming pool, jacuzzi spa, gym, sauna, steam room and treat­ment rooms, as well as a Bistro of­fer­ing fab­u­lous food daily.

They have a wide range of own­er­ship op­tions, but two of the finest ex­am­ples are the new Pem­ber­ton Mar­low Lodge and the Vic­tory Parkview Twin Lodge, both of which are fully equipped with cen­tral heat­ing and dou­ble glaz­ing as stan­dard as well as ad­di­tional lux­u­ri­ous fit­tings.

It’s also worth check­ing out the Camp­ing and Car­a­van­ning Club web­site for in­for­ma­tion on their three great lo­ca­tions in Tar­land by Aboyne, the grounds of Scone Palace and Nairn.
