Depends on your perspective. If an annual shed break allows the holiday maker to save sufficient money to retire in their 40's then that person has the rest of their life as one long holiday.Are you sure your definition of good holiday isn't just a cheap one?
Going down to your shed at the bottom of the garden isn't really a holiday....in my opinion!
The money saved by shed breaks for around 20 years is not going to allow anyone to retire in their 40s, who hasn't won the lottery, worked in the city, or retired from one of the uniformed services, let alone people who do mundane jobs.Depends on your perspective.

Conversely, a sun bunny may get a week or two every year somewhere or other, but may end up working into their late 60's or beyond to pay for the habit.
From where I'm sitting, in my armchair designed for prematurely retired people of leisure, the Butlins inspired shed vacation seems a most splendid option. If you prefer spending your life up a chimney or down a pit then the expensive holiday may be for you.
So you enjoy your annual 2 weeks annual break in whatever place it is you fancy, and Derrick and I will enjoy our 52 weeks annual chillax with equal relish.
I managed it through savings and doing materially well out of a divorce, and due to a bit of luck (although I'm a firm believer that you make your own luck) I ended up owning 2 houses outright so have a steady rental 8ncome. I could have no pension at all and still - barely - have stopped when I did.The money saved by shed breaks for around 20 years is not going to allow anyone to retire in their 40s, who hasn't won the lottery, worked in the city, or retired from one of the uniformed services, let alone people who do mundane jobs.
No, although I do regularly suggest to her that, she may, feel much more fulfilled if she got a job. So far all I get in return is an answer ending in "off"Doesn't your wife still work though? Of course, she may very much enjoy doing so.
Frankly, I'd be bored stupid if I retired. A couple of years ago I did decide to work 4 days a week, which gives me plenty of time for hobbies and life admin and loads of money for holidays and ample savings I've never had a car loan either and I just paid off my mortgage
