“It seems that people are wanting to find destinations that are off the usual beaten track in the UK and won’t be quite so crowded as the hotspots.”

Wales is the top holiday home location in the UK for 2020/21, according to research from holiday home insurance company Schofields Ltd. Based on the percentage of holiday homes located in each area, Schofields estimates that Wales will be the top holiday home destination over the next year, followed by Cornwall, Scotland, Devon, and North Yorkshire. Looking at the biggest increases in the number of new and renewed holiday home insurance contracts, Schofields has also predicted the most ‘up and coming’ holiday home locations.

These locations are likely to be less crowded than other more popular resorts but are rising through the charts. County Durham topped the list, followed by Wiltshire, East Yorkshire, Cumbria, and Suffolk. Phil Schofield, head of marketing at Schofields Ltd, commented: “Getting away from home safely once restrictions have been lifted is something that’s on everyone’s minds.

Holiday homes and holiday cottages are top of people’s lists due to their privacy and ease. Data suggests that people in the UK take breaks of 2-3 days more frequently than any other length of holiday, so being able to make a short journey with less stress to a holiday cottage or holiday home is really important. “The top locations for holiday homes in 2020 aren’t a surprise to us, but the up and coming locations are interesting.

It seems that people are wanting to find destinations that are off the usual beaten track in the UK and won’t be quite so crowded as the hotspots.

Hopefully our data will help tourists choose destinations for short breaks in the UK where they can easily find holiday cottage accommodation but will have plenty to see and do.”
