More about Cottage Membership

Cottage Membership at Melfort Village

Melfort Village is owned and managed by The Melfort Club, being the association of Melfort cottage owners, which was formed in 1983. Each cottage owner has a direct say in the way the Village is run, through a professionally qualified Committee elected from the membership.

Although all original cottages were fully sold-out by the end of 1995 and no further development is planned, The Melfort Club offers a successful Re-Sale Programme.

We have many members of long standing who enjoy their holidays with us every year and who look upon Melfort Village as their “second home”.

Others enjoy the benefits of Melfort’s high value with the exchange companies (being an RCI Gold Crown Resort and a much sought after Dial-an-Exchange destination).  We also operate a rental programme which further enhances members’ options for use.

There are a total of 1,600 Cottage Membership weeks and about 1,200 members, as some own multiple weeks. Ownership is either permanent which means it is classed as heritable property and means that you are a member of The Melfort Club until such time as you sell or transfer your ownership or fixed term which means that you own the week for a set period of time, either 5 years or 10 years..

The Melfort Club is run by a small Committee of up to nine elected members. Each member serves for a three year term and retires on rotation. Any member can put their name forward to become a Committee member and elections are held at the AGM which is usually held in April of each year.

The maintenance fees are set by our Committee annually and typically, there is an increase every year roughly in line with inflation (although the actual figure is more dependent on the projected running costs for the year ahead). You also pay for the electricity costs for your week’s holiday (although if it is rented or exchanged then it is paid by the guests), fuel for fires and stoves, and pet charges.


Inner Village



Magical Melfort Holidays are loading...We're looking forward to welcoming you to Melfort Village soon.

Melfort Village is still closed due to Covid-19 restrictions, but we're working hard to have everything ready for re-opening.

Linda and the team are polishing up our already rigorous cleaning practices to make sure you and our team members are safe whilst staying at Melfort.  We will be publishing these measures very soon to re-assure you that we are going above and beyond what is required to ensure social distancing is achieved.

We're also actively getting the cottages and village facilities ready with deep cleaning and sanitisation throughout.  We're hoping that all of our facilities will be available for guest use including our leisure facilities, although we may have to change the way we do things slightly to allow for social distancing.

Lastly, we're almost ready to start taking membership enquiries and rental bookings again and we will be singing from the rooftops when our diary is open.   Make sure to sign up for our email newsletter if you haven't already done so as we'll be sending more details soon!
