Deciding where to buy your holiday home is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make. Where you buy your holiday home will dictate the type of UK holidays you’ll have and so it’s important to carefully consider your options. Because we’re all different and we appreciate different things when we’re on vacation, different locations will be more suitable for some than others.
Here’s what you need to consider when deciding where to buy your holiday home.
Will you be offering your holiday home as a rental?
Many people offset some of the running costs of owning their own holiday home by letting it out as a holiday rental when they’re not using it. At Encore Parcs, we provide a managed letting service to make the whole process that much smoother for you. If you are planning on renting out your holiday home, you’ll need to make sure it’s in a location that is attractive to holiday makers. All of our holiday parks are in excellent locations but if you’re looking to really maximise your returns, you might consider buying a holiday home in Suffolk. The South East is such an attractive holiday destination and rental demand can be huge. All of our holiday homes in Suffolk are set within Aspen Country Park – 222 acres of stately and prestigious grounds that once belonged to the Duke of Norfolk!
What kind of scenery do you like?
Believe or not, the UK has an assortment of different types of scenery and while they’re all as beautiful as each other, personal preference does come into play. Do you prefer to explore the British outdoors via scenic coastal paths filled with chalky white cliff views? Do you love the feel of sand between your toes and adore hearing the sound of waves crashing against the shore? Or would your perfect day be spent strolling through lush green vegetation filled with wildlife? Whatever option best suits you, you should take this into consideration when buying your holiday home. For example, if a stunning coastal setting is your ideal holiday home backdrop then you might consider buying a holiday home in Suffolk. However, if you prefer a beach vibe, you might consider Cornwall. Do your research beforehand and see what type of holiday setting is more your style.
Who will you be bringing to your holiday home?
When deciding where to buy your holiday home you’ll need to take into consideration who will be staying there. For example, if you’re going to be bringing the whole family, children and all, you’ll want to make sure there are family and children friendly activities to do nearby. Similarly, if you’re a child-free couple or you plan on bringing your dogs, you’ll appreciate completely different activities. Maybe you’d like a mix of everything? You’ll need to make sure that wherever you buy your holiday home, it caters to your entertainment and activity needs.
