Why buy a holiday home?
Barlochan Holiday Park is the perfect place to have a home from home. Having a holiday home can improve your life in so many ways and in today’s busy world full of distractions, can be the perfect antidote to the stresses of every day. There are many reasons why a holiday home is a great choice for your family and below we’ve listed our top ten.
1. Your home away from home
When you own a holiday home you get all the home comforts and modern luxuries without the stresses and hassles of everyday life. No bills in the post, constant calls, work, home repairs and all the other ‘life admin’ gets left behind.
You know what’s there and you can ensure that everything you need to have the perfect holiday is there. No more arriving at a holiday house and finding that there’s something missing, or that you should have brought something from home. If you’re a coffee lover, your cafetiere will be there waiting for you. If you bake to relax, you can keep your baking equipment at your home, ready to use.

3. It’s good for you!
There are so many health benefits associated with getting away from the every day and taking a step back from the fast pace of everyday life. When you own a holiday home you get more of all the good things that make us healthier, happier and less stressed; more laughter, more relaxation, more sleep, more fresh air, more exercise, more fun. Spend quality time with family and recharge your batteries, without the distractions of every day life and laugh more.
Owning a holiday home is incredibly good value in comparison to bricks and mortar, or shelling out on a few expensive holidays a year. You can, as many people do, use finance to buy your holiday home. You can buy a holiday home in glorious Galloway from as little as £10,000.
As life becomes busier and busier, more of us have to work more and schools crack down on kids taking holidays out with the school holidays, its becoming harder, more restrictive and more expensive to go on holiday. You can leave work on Friday afternoon and be sitting on your decking with a glass of wine just a few hours later. There’s no long journey, no worries if you need to unexpectedly return home, little traffic on our roads and less worrying about umpteen toilet breaks on route.
6. Open all year
You have the flexibility to come anytime of year, with no premiums for peak holiday seasons and if you have a last minute holiday, there’s no panic booking and inflated prices, simply pop in the car and come to your home from home. There’s no check ins, no airport security, no parking costs or departure times; you can come and go as you please. And as you know where you’re going, the stress of trying to find your destination is no longer!
7. Pet friendly parks
Our parks are dog friendly and we welcome dogs to come and stay with you, so expensive kennels and the hassles of finding a dog sitter are a thing of the past.. Your dog can come along with you and enjoy the wide open spaces, beaches and many walks available. Your dog can feel at home in your holiday home too, so there’s no worry about how they’ll settle in an unfamiliar environment.
8. A warm welcome awaits

Enjoy the now often lost community feel of the park and it’s other residents. Make lasting friendships with your neighbours and enjoy the support and camaraderie of the community of residents.
9. Quality Time
Remember all sitting round the table having meals together? Enjoying an evening together watching a film in the same room? Getting outdoors as a family and enjoying a walk or finding a new hobby in common? These are no longer a thing of the past in your new home from home. Whether it’s disappearing into a good book on your decking overlooking the sea, or spending quality time together as a family, exploring the park walks, beach and activities. Take a step back and enjoy the slower pace of life together, away from phones and computer games and embrace a simpler, family friendly way of life. Bring extended family or friends to come with you and enjoy some time together, away from work, bills and responsibilities.
