For reasons of clarity and transparency, we suggest you visit for current information on buying holiday lodges and log cabins.

A unique and ideally located luxury lodge in the heart of the National Forest (DE12 6JX) in Derbyshire at Overseal, easily accessed from Junction 11 of the M42 ,located in Swainswood Park, Five star holiday park with spa on site, in a gated community with a dedicated parking spot. The staff are very friendly and helpful. This lodge was originally a show before purchase and has been kept in immaculate condition.

Built in 2005, this Omar Osprey built lodge measures 42ft by 20ft and was listed as £98,000 originally.

Why unique? Not only was this a show home lodge up until 2011,I have invested as my home for 4 years with all the fencing and skirt panels replaced with the Japanese horizon pattern around the whole decking area. The lodge is surrounded by woodlands and a babbling brook at the rear of the property with a self engaged garden area not to mention a hot tub for the balmy summer evenings.

The decking around the lodge is complete; you can literally walk around the lodge on all 4 sides and is completely unique to the park where it sits.

The lodge has been painted externally as has the decking and fencing.

The lodge is fully furnished and ready to move into now, Yes, complete in all aspects and ready to live in and rent, Yes rent…. Not only a wonderful home but an opportunity to make some money as usual rents is in region of £600 pw in season. There are many attractions within 20 minutes and you're an hour from Nottingham and Birmingham as well as Burton and Derby near by.

The lodge is all double glazed and has blinds and curtains throughout.

The access to the lodge (via a PIN controlled gate) is available 24/7 365 days a year, no limitations.

Central heating throughout the lodge with 9 radiators throughout.

Back to the contents, take a look at the pictures, they are recent and they are accurate…

Kitchen is fully equipped with cooker (5 gas hob with electric oven), fridge freezer, Dish washer and microwave.

Dining area is completed with a full dining table (with extending facility) and chairs. Patio doors open on to decking for al fresco dining.

Lounge is carpeted with 2 and 3 seated settees and with 32" modern TV and side lights

Utility room has sink, washing machine and houses central heating boiler

Master bedroom with a king size bed, walk in wardrobe and en suite shower room and a small TV.

No small print, the ground rent is £3835 per year inclusive of VAT and all property charges to Swainswood leisure park and spa, however as with all lodges there is no levy of council tax or TV licence (which would be in region of £120 pcm or TV license £140 pa) as there needs to be a permanent postal address to be able to purchase the property.

The ground rent covers maintenance of the grounds, which always looks lovely and well kept as the 5 star award reflects this and also there are local refuse compounds within the grounds.

The property is broadband ready with BT

Reluctant sale as my job has relocated and reduced for a quick sale to benefit myself and the bidder. I don't have the time in my diary to be able to manage a rentable property.

If you want a beautiful home and a potential holiday lease for families and opportunity to make a commercial venture this is a fantastic chance for you.

I have recently refused a 3 month lease by a potential customer as I don't have the time, if you have the time to engage you will have a wonderful opportunity.

The property is listed at £87,500. This is a bargain price as a quick check on Swainswood website shows the cheapest park owned lodge at 127k and remember you have the potential to lease as you see fit. This really is opportunity and is priced for a quick sale.

All descriptions, dimensions, references to condition and necessary permissions for use and occupation and other details are given in good faith and are believed to be correct, but any intending purchasers should not rely on them as statements or representations of fact, but must satisfy themselves by inspection or otherwise as to their correctness.
