Posted by Sell My Group in Latest News, April 29, 2021

We have been busy doing some number crunching on our website, and North Yorkshire has become the biggest ‘growth’ area for holiday property views! This sharp rise can be attributed to the UK’s current boom in the staycation market and the growing trend towards UK holidays.

  • North Yorkshire is in top place above Cornwall with website searches reaching 32,000%
  • Cornwall overall totalled 1,600% with Derbyshire showing a growth of 7,700% from last year
  • Other stand out figures were for Cheshire, with a year on year increase of 22,300% and Gloucestershire at 17,000%

As Coronavirus restrictions begin to ease and with uncertainty surrounding foreign travel, many Brits are exploring holiday destinations within the UK. Holiday parks offer families and couples excellent accommodation, on-site facilities, entertainment, and lots to do in the local area. From pet-friendly parks to ones right by the sea, there is an ideal holiday for everyone. Whether you are looking for a holiday or a second home, Sell My Group can meet your needs.

Justin Allitt, owner of Sell My Group said: ‘Whilst we knew the visits to the Sell My Group website had increased significantly, until we sourced the data we couldn’t believe just how much. From North to South, in all areas of the UK, holiday makers are definitely looking for a UK destination this year, and we predict the trend will continue to grow. Holiday parks offer families the whole package and we have some of the best across the UK’.
