With the reduction and uncertainty of future subsidies, many are looking for alternative incomes to secure their futures. Since 2018 farm diversification according to a survey by NFU Mutual, has gone from 29% to 37% with 2020 seeing a huge 6% jump alone!

We are at the forefront of luxury lodge design, with all our homes being built bespoke to meet each individual specification. You can be sure that your home will be unique and best suited to you!
The rise and continuation in popularity of staycations since the beginning of COVID-19 have aided this jump and doesn’t look like it’s going to end anytime soon. A study by the Mirror found that Inquiries about breaks in Britain for 2022 are up by 74% from the year before. People love getting away to get some needed downtime from their busy city lives, without the difficulty and risk of going abroad, luxury getaway accommodation is still in huge demand. There has been no better to invest in holiday letting with the change in the stigma of UK holidays being substandard to holidays abroad. There has also been a rise in the popularity of farm getaways, suiting those who are looking for scenic surroundings.

With a Pathfinder Home’s beautiful and desirable designs, you can be assured to expect larger returns.
