We’ve been building quality timber lodges for almost 40 years. Many of our lodges are privately owned but even more are used in the holiday rental market. It’s something we know a lot about because we are also park owners ourselves.
Our award-winning parks, Darwin Forest Luxury Lodges and Sandybrook Luxury Lodges, achieve consistently high customer ratings. The quality of the Pinelog lodge accommodation plays an important part in this success.
Being a manufacturer and a park operator means that we have a unique understanding of what makes the ideal lodge. A lodge with the ‘wow’ factor that will maximise rental returns and be easy to maintain.
We use our experience to continuously hone and improve our lodges so that they are among the very best available and perfectly suited to the exacting demands of the holiday rental market. We are more than willing to share our insight with other park owners to help you get the best out of your lodge offer.
Manufacturer & holiday park operator
Whether you want a timber lodge for a rural, woodland or coastal park, or if you are a small farm looking to diversify, or for a greenfield developer, we have a range of lodges to suit your location and budget.
Beautiful & Tough
Holiday rental lodges need to be more than just attractive, they must be built to last, with enduring appeal. All Pinelog lodges have charm and personality. They’re also designed to be tough enough to stand up to the challenges of the rental market.
We understand that quality lodges need hardwearing fittings and furnishings that are practical but also deliver the ‘wow’ factor.
Build to last
You can rely on a Pinelog lodge. Even after 12-15 years in rental use, they will still have market appeal and an excellent residual value for resale. This makes them a truly great whole-life investment. If you’d like to see some figures to back this up – just ask.
Lodge Users – Your Customers
We understand the need for a choice of sizes and layouts to suit couples, families, limited mobility families and groups. We offer a number of excellent standard designs and a free bespoke service that covers small tweaks through to major design changes.
As holidaymakers become more discerning, we know you need to offer innovation and diversification in your rental lodges. Perhaps you want to incorporate a games room in a large multi-generational lodge, a dedicated dog shower in a boutique pet-friendly lodge, or bathroom TVs in an exclusive couples’ spa lodge. We’re always looking for new angles to explore, which we test-market and then share with our customers.
Deliver Unique Experience
Our traditional log interiors are well loved by our customers because they are about as low maintenance< as you can get. Holidaymakers love them too because they add so much to that popular ‘log cabin’ experience. If pine isn’t your thing, we also offer other hardwearing interiors, such as our white vernis or painted composite cladding.
Most of all, we understand that what really matters is that a holiday rental lodge is trouble-free and provides a great return. Pinelog lodges are inherently low maintenance which contributes towards low running costs and healthy returns.

Buying a lodge on a park, or as a second home
Pinelog has worked with many parks over the years, so we have great experience in this area. We can liaise successfully with you and your chosen park.
Providing guidance and direction to new holiday park owners is at the heart of Pinelog’s approach. We support and advise you through the whole process, from general planning, to choosing the right lodge, specification, delivery, siting and installation. We also provide a complete aftersales service.
Frequently asked questions
If you wish to purchase a lodge sited on a holiday park you should firstly contact the park owner as our contract will be with them and not you individually. Once you have started negotiations with the park owner it’s normally possible for us to work directly with you to establish a design and specification for your lodge.
This will depend upon your agreement with the holiday park.
Every park will have its own rules and conditions determined by its site licence. We recommend you speak with the park owner to understand the rules before you buy your lodge.
