With the global pandemic posing many questions, including those around travel, many of us are taking the next steps towards buying a permanent holiday home. With many of us taking the leap and looking to purchase a home in the UK. Now is the perfect time. 

For many people, the idea of having a ‘home from home’ where they can escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life for a long weekend away has never been more appealing. A UK based holiday home offers many benefits, plus if we have any future pandemics (fingers crossed we avoid this) they are a good spot to settle down, lock you and your family in for a series of at home adventures and walks. 

As an added bonus to owning a holiday home can also present a potentially profitable investment opportunity for those looking to capitalise on the recent ‘staycation’ boom. Providing a holiday home they can use and also rent out, as this market is on the rise, with no signs of slowing down.

Now once you’ve found and chosen your ideal holiday home, be it in Scotland, Wales, The Lakes, Devon, Dorset or Cornwall to name but a few!
