How To Set Up A Guest Lodge Business?
One of the most rewarding things we do as a company is to help people just like you create a second or residual income by helping you set up a Guest Lodge business of your very own.
Luxury Guest Lodges
We can supply any number of luxury Guest Lodges to suit your site. As one of our commercial customers you will qualify for a discount on multiple orders. We believe we have the best range of Guest Lodges available, including both Contemporary and Traditional designs. Prices start at around £90,000 per Guest Lodge.
Planning Permission Service
Planning Permission is generally favourable when it comes to increasing tourism or leisure in the UK. Frequent weekend breaks several times a year is now much more common place and the UK “staycation” trend is still on the up! We offer a comprehensive Planning Permission service for one or multiple Guest Lodges as part of our turn-key approach.
Sales & Marketing Service
We offer a unique Sales & Marketing service when you choose us and our Guest Lodge manufacturer as your Guest Lodge providers. We’ll build you a designated website and actively promote your Guest Lodge business each and every month. We’ll even help you sell Guest Lodge developments tailor-made to the second home / retirement market if required.
Here’s How It Works!
The UK Staycation “Boom” Is Still Booming As More Of Us Take More Time Out In The UK Than Ever Before
And that’s before BREXIT happens!
Some Fascinating Facts To Ponder!
According to the data, Brits go on holiday an average of twice a year, at a cost of £855 per person each time, with 23% even spending £1,000 or more per holiday.
Britain will have a tourism industry worth over £257 billion by 2025 – just under 10% of UK GDP and supporting almost 3.8 million jobs, which is around 11% of the total UK number.

Holiday Let Planning Permission
Disclaimer: All Local Planning Authorities will vary and each case will be decided on it’s own individual merit. In general we’ve found most Local Planning Authorities to favour increased tourism in all parts of the UK.
Planning permission and building regulations are the essential first steps if you are considering offering serviced or self-catering accommodation. Serviced accommodation includes guest lodges.
It is advisable to get in contact with your Local Planning Department for advice on obtaining planning permission for your Guest Lodge business at a very early stage.
We can do this for you as part of our turn-key service.
– You should advise them if you are starting a business or expanding an existing one.
There will be a plan within your relevant authority’s Local Development Framework that will detail policies involving tourism and guest accommodation.
As guest lodges are not deemed to be a permanent address, the Planning Authorities are in general more relaxed about Guest Lodge annexes than annexes in your back garden for a relative.
If your Guest Lodge or Guest Lodges are in close proximity to your main dwelling, there will be consideration given to the size and number of bedrooms your Guest Lodges can have in relation to the size and number of bedrooms of the main dwelling.
e.g. You can’t expect to build a Premier Inn Hotel sized “lodge” next to your 4 bedroom detached house
If you are converting an existing building into a Guest Lodge or B&B you should consult with the local authority planning officers to determine whether change of use consent is required.
What Can Affect Planning Permission?
Each application and Local Planning Authority will vary, however some of the most common things that affect your planning decision include:
- If your plot is in green belt, a national park, an area of outstanding natural beauty, or a heritage site.
If Your Property Is A Listed Building
- If your property is listed this can affect approval. However if you are using the income from your new potential holiday letting to supplement repairs of the listed building, it is worth mentioning this in your application as this might be seen as beneficial and sustainable.
Local Plans and Neighbourhood Plans
These directives are created by communities to allow them to shape the development and growth of the local area. They are often used when determining planning applications, for example if your venture fits into their vision then you will not need planning permission

When it comes to choosing the right Guest Lodge for your Guest Lodge Business, we know we may be biased but we believe we have the best selection available in the UK!
Guest Lodges Also Make Perfect Leisure Accommodation For Small Developments On Golf Courses, Hotels and Fishing Lakes Too!
With Golf Club Memberships shrinking by almost a 3rd in the last few years it pays to diversify if you have access to land for a small Guest Lodge Business.
Even Britain’s favourite leisure pastime fishing has seen a decline in fishing licences.
It’s not only our shopping habits that have changed, our leisure habits have too!
We are seeking EXPERIENCES over “things” choosing to YOLO (you only live once) over the material possessions that we craved in the 1980’s.
The status symbols of today are travelling more, attending events and making sure we are making memories.
