Brits look for UK holiday homes

More than three quarters of Brits (77%) aspire to own a holiday home in the UK, a survey by Park Leisure has found.

Cornwall (21%) is the most popular holiday home location, followed by the Lake District (13%), Yorkshire Dales (9%), Scottish Highlands (8%) and London (7%).

People aged 25-34 are the most likely to aspire to own a UK holiday home (88%), while the Lake District is the most popular among that demographic.

Lisa Williams, director of marketing and holiday sales at Park Leisure, said: “We are seeing a much bigger demand for UK holiday homes, with people looking to invest in their own space, where they can tuck themselves away and escape the worries of everyday life with their families.

“It’s fantastic to see that Cornwall has been revealed as the UK’s most desirable holiday home spot. With three of our parks situated along the stunning Cornish coastline, we have something for everyone’s taste and budget.

“The beautiful Yorkshire Dales was named the third most desirable location to own a UK holiday home, and our three Yorkshire locations are placed within the heart of the countryside, with amazing walking spots and scenery, which is truly breathtaking all year round.

“When it’s safe to do so, we’re looking forward to being able to welcome our families, and their pets, to enjoy the wonders of their home away from home and explore all that the UK’s beauty spots have to offer.”

People living in the largest UK cities are the most likely to want to invest in a holiday home to escape the hustle and bustle, with people from London (84%), Birmingham (81%) and Manchester (78%) within the top five, alongside Norwich (80%) and Belfast (78%).
