Across the UK many people opt for a second home whether that be abroad, or right on their doorstep. Second homes are a great way to get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life and to feel a sense of escapism.

Holiday homes like ours are brilliant for those of you with homes abroad – to retain a foothold in the UK. Meaning you can come and go as you please and know you have a place to call home with all your familiar comforts. Raylands Country Park is open Christmas and New Year so you can use your UK base when visiting friends and family over the festive period too.

Many people buy holiday homes on a site for the social scene. We have a friendly clubhouse, beer garden and lounge which is perfect for socialising with other holidaymakers. It’s a great way to meet new people and make friends with fellow holiday makers. What’s better, if you fancy a drink or two, you know your holiday home isn’t a long stroll away.

If you have family or friends in the South East and you want somewhere to stay when visiting, then investing in a holiday home would be a great idea. This would allow more time to spend time with loved ones and still retain a peaceful, private place to come back to and relax.

Another great reason to purchase a holiday home on a maintained site like Raylands Country Park is that you don’t need to worry about the little things like the upkeep of the outside areas as the grounds are meticulously kept by the Raylands staff. This means you can enjoy your break without needing to do any outdoor chores such as mowing the lawn like you would at home!

It is best to try and work out what you want from your second home location. Are you after a tranquil setting with peaceful walks or are you looking for a livelier destination? Do extensive research into your chosen area to make sure it has everything you are looking for.
