Reasons to invest in your own holiday home for all the family

The saying “Today’s special moments are tomorrow’s memories” never rang more true than when talking about multigenerational holidays.


Our lives are faster paced than ever. We’re juggling long work hours and busy schedules of extra-curricular activities for the kids. It can be hard to make time to spend with your extended family, however a holiday home in Dorset can offer the perfect backdrop for making multigenerational memories that will last a lifetime. 

Unique location for your holiday home


The Silverlake Estate sits at the very heart of the Dorset countryside, with lively Dorchester nearby and the spectacular Jurassic Coast just a few miles further. Its location makes it appealing to those looking to invest in a holiday home in Dorset that will excite all members of the family in equal measure, from the coast path hikers and wild swimmers to the shoppers and the bar hoppers – including plenty of dog friendly attractions so you can bring the whole family. With a place to call your own, you’ll all have the flexibility to come and go as you please. Divide and conquer the Estate’s endless activity options during the day and regroup for small plates and laughter at the Hurricane Bar & Terrace in the evening, or gather everyone together for a trip to the beach before heading home for a leisurely family dinner cooked in your very own kitchen.

Inside your luxury lakeside holiday home, open plan living and acres of outdoor space lend themselves perfectly to gathering the whole gang for a truly memorable multigenerational celebration, whether that might be a big birthday or anniversary, or even a new take on the traditional family Christmas. You can all get together in a familiar, but special place to create those moments together, “the greatest legacy we can leave our children is happy memories”.

Your own home away from home


One of the main reasons people choose to invest in holiday homes in Dorset is to create a place the whole family can visit year after year. Silverlake’s luxury properties are designed to feel like a home away from home without the cost and inconvenience of flying abroad, yet special enough to host those big occasions. Looking back in years to come, there will be a real sense of nostalgia to those memories of Dad loading the fridge with wine to chill, Nan doing yoga with the teens, all the generations giving paddleboarding on the lake a go and everyone tucking into feasts on the terrace overlooking Dorset’s rolling hills as the sun goes down. Stronger bonds and lots of stories are a given. 


Benefits of a Silverlake property


Investing in a holiday home comes with practical benefits as well as sentimental ones. Award-winning in design, Silverlake’s investment properties are built with big families in mind. Living areas are spacious, created specifically to nurture those moments when you finally get to relax and reconnect, and there’s a sense of freedom and privacy. Future-proofed and with assets like air source heat pumps and EV charging points, the luxury homes will both stand the test of time when passed down through generations or hold their value for resale once you have enjoyed your time there. And for those who choose to let out their home through the on-site Habitat Escapes rental company when they aren’t using it, there’s potential to earn substantial revenue from your investment. The Habitat team will even take care of maintenance and keyholding too, so your lock up and leave can become another family’s retreat for a few days, without any hassle and knowing that your property is in safe hands.

The greatest gift we have is time and at Silverlake we believe that an opportunity to spend more of that making memories with the people you love the most is worth every penny.
