Join the British Staycation

With rising costs of overseas holidays, many of us are looking at exploring the Great British Isles and taking holidays closer to home. Here's why owning a holiday home at Holiday Resort Unity supports the increase in the UK staycation, whether you use just for your exclusive use or choose to rent out.

Over the years, the nation’s love of a staycation has gone from strength to strength.  With the uncertainty that has been surrounding Brexit, more and more Brits are choosing to holiday at home.   According to the latest figures from VisitBritain, there were 59 million staycations in the UK last year, up by almost 6% on 2016.

The South West is still the most popular region for people choosing to holiday at home, a good factor to consider if you are thinking about letting out your static caravan to help return some of, or more than, the annual site costs.

Also, coastal and pet friendly holidays are up there with the top breaks taken, another bonus if you are thinking of letting.

Here's a few reasons why buying at Holiday Resort Unity is a perfect base:
