Luxury Residential Lodges: Built to BS3632 For Year Round Living In Comfort & Style
100% Compliant With The Caravan Act
If you are serious about building a residential lodge in your garden, please take a few minutes to read this page very carefully because it can potentially save you & your family time, money and a whole lot of hassle.
We’ve spent years doing things the hard way, so you don’t have to. Lodges like these are an investment in your family that can potentially reward you over & over when you do it the right way, and when you combine the most successful route to gaining permission to site a mobile home in your garden with our stunning range of lodges, you are on to a real winner.
All our luxury lodges are manufactured here in the UK and built to BS3632 making them suitable for comfortable year-round living.
They all come with a 10 year platinum seal warranty for total peace of mind. Lodges are supplied fully furnished just as you see in the pictures and they are available in a wide range of sizes, styles & budgets offering you a great value for money option.
Importantly they also make the planning application process as simple & streamlined as possible by being 100% compliant with the Caravan Act.
Even though Central Government in the UK is highly in favour of garden annexes for all the social, economic and environmental benefits, but you may find that your Local Planning Authority isn’t.
This can be frustrating and it’s the primary reason we offer a full turn-key service as it’s definitely not something you should attempt yourself. It should be handled by professionals who specialise in obtaining annexe planning permission in the UK.
Contrary to what you might read (thanks Google!) a granny annexe or lodge with someone living in it on a day-to-day basis will always need either planning permission or a Certificate of Lawfulness from your LPA. Ignore it at your peril (they do not fall under permitted development) and will only ever be granted for a family member.
When it comes to building a lodge in your back garden, choosing the right way to do it with our help is vital to securing the relevant permission from your Local Planning Authority. In order for your new lodge to be defined as a mobile home under the Caravan Act, The Caravan Sites Act 1968 as amended in England 2006 and Wales 2007 outlines the criteria for what constitutes a mobile home.Size – wise to comply it must be:-
You may find yourself restricted on size, design, facilities and position if you opt for Planning Permission rather than the Caravan Act.
All our garden lodges have been designed by a professional interior designer and offer exceptional value for money when it comes to providing annexe style accommodation for a family member.
With so many design options to choose from, it’s best for your budget (and your stress levels) to stay as close to the designer look you love as possible.
The Hampton and the Foresters are two of our most popular lodges, one being contemporary in style & one being a traditional or country cottage style.
Lodges are the best choice if you are planning to move in the future as they can either be sold and relocated or we can help you move the lodge with you (if the access is suitable of course). This can help solve some of the frequent challenges large families face when discussing lodges, elderly parents and inheritance issues.
And unlike our build on site custom annexes, as the lodges are manufactured off-site and delivered at a later date mess & disruption to family life is kept to a minimum.
