Is buying a holiday home a good investment?
That’s the big question for starters. And the answer is ‘probably more so than you think’.
Because now more than ever we know that life is bigger than purely financial matters. It’s about taking time and making memories. But, when it comes back to the balance sheet, buying your own UK holiday home could stack up as a great investment.
Interest in UK holidays is continuing to grow, which means owning a UK holiday home right now could be very timely. Why? Because as well as having a place you can enjoy yourselves, many holiday homes are ideal for letting out. And that means the potential for income to offset your annual costs. Most importantly, it’s a lifestyle investment. It gives you the opportunity to create a home from home, spend time with your loved ones and appreciate your down time in some beautiful parts of the UK.
Should I buy a holiday home?
Visit Helmsley and discover a beautiful medieval castle, which dates back to the 12th century. Visitors can explore its impressive walls and towers, as well as its serene courtyard. Helmsley Castle also contains a museum, which showcases artefacts from its history and includes interactive displays. If you’re a history buff, this is a place you don’t want to miss out on.
A holiday home in the UK gives you somewhere to go to when you want to. It’s somewhere to share time with your family and friends. And it’s a possible source of income over and above the return on your investment.
And when it comes to your heart, your own UK holiday home makes a lot of sense too. This is where you can be yourselves. It’s how to put your savings, or pension pot, to really good use. It’s about you, your family, and your future, to make memories, take time and be happy…

About the area
The park is bordered to the south by the Howardian Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the North York Moors National Park to the north. A little to the east is the North Riding Forest Park, so Keld Spring Lodge Retreat is in a prime location for those with a love of the great outdoors.
The resort is a short drive to the historic city of York and the famous seaside towns of Whitby, Scarborough and Filey. It is also close to some of the region’s biggest attractions, including Malton, renowned for its fine local produce and food festival and considered to be Yorkshire’s food capital, and Castle Howard, which recently appeared in Bridgerton as the Duke of Hastings’ country estate. The World of James Herriot, a multi-award-winning visitor attraction in Thirsk, is only half an hour away.
The North Yorkshire Moors Railway, made famous by ITV’s Heartbeat and the very first Harry Potter film, starts at Pickering, 10 miles from the park, weaving through Goathland and on to Whitby, with several visitor attractions to take in on the way. There is so much to do and experience here. North Yorkshire’s rich history and culture, and it’s even richer scenery and landscapes have made this spot the ideal location for a luxury lodge resort.
