There are many factors to consider when picking the perfect holiday lodge name. You want to pick a name that expresses what your property is all about while also being something fresh and new, that your guests will remember.

In this guide, we will share some guidance on how to pick the right name and where to find inspiration.

Be original

First and foremost, you want to try and make your holiday lodge stand out from the crowd. One way to do this is to pick a memorable name for your property. Do some research on lodges, chalets and cottages in the local area and see what names or words are currently being used. It would be wise to avoid these names, as you want to be as unique as possible. Moreover, it can be confusing for your guests if properties in a similar location has the same name.

Cumbrian Culture

Explore the local culture where your property resides and see if you can incorporate it into your property’s name. For example, the Lake District and the North are known for having their own dialect. Terms such as ‘Marra = Friend’ or ‘Yam = Home’ could give your property that extra personal local touch. You can even pick names that may not be wholly transferable but can still be unique. For example, The Yews  and Ash are named after common trees found in Cumbria. Other examples are Ghyll Lodge or Mere Brook Lodge both ghyll and mere have Cumbrian connections.

Location, Location, Location

When struggling to think of ideas of what to name your lodge, keep it simple and look at the physical location of where your property resides. Some of the best names for properties can be inspired by their local surroundings. For example, is your property near a lake or beach? Is it surrounded by greenery? Or is close to a local town and/or market? All these location types can serve you as a way to come up with the perfect holiday lodge name. Examples are: Barbondale, Wansfell Retreat Lodge, Borrowdale Lodge, or Shoreside Lodge
