With the summer holidays coming to an end, the temperature will soon start to drop, and it’ll start getting darker earlier. But it’s not all doom and gloom. Your holiday home will always be there, ready and waiting for your next visit and there are still plenty of memories to be made over autumn and winter! 

So, it’s time to swap your sandals for hiking boots, exchange outdoor games with the kids for a movie night together in front of the fire, and replace your crisp glass of rose for a rich bottle of Merlot. 

But before you get tucked up under your favourite blanket, it’s time to finish off those little jobs you’ve been putting off and get your holiday home or lodge ready for the colder months. 


Use Victory Leisure Homes’ handy checklist and your holiday home will be in perfect condition in no time, ready for a new season of weekends away, mini breaks and staycations with friends and family.

It’s time to swap your sandals
 ... for hiking boots

Place some damp collectors - or bowls of salt - around your home to avoid excess moisture creeping in
Speak to your park to check whether the winter gas and electricity supply will be turned off during winter. It’s also worth speaking to your park about any overhanging trees near your holiday home – with the potential for storms, there’s a risk of damage
Check your insurance policy for winter requirements. Damage to your holiday home in the winter can cause insurance premiums to rise, so it’s best to be prepared!

When you’re finished, reward yourself with a mug of hot chocolate. Don’t forget the marshmallows and whipped cream - you’ve earnt it!
