Many of us dream of having our very own bolthole where we can escape the woes of day-to-day life whenever we please without the hassle that comes with booking. Others might be looking to “speculate to accumulate” by renting a holiday home out for a little extra income.
But, whatever it is you are after, we have done the leg work for you. First, we looked at the most in demand spots to buy with a budget under £200,000 and later explored areas available to you with £250,000. Now, using data from estate agency Savills, we have found the locations with the highest levels of demand, where you can invest up to £300,000.
With this budget, almost all of the locations have access to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty or National Parks, and those without have the draw of the seaside.
Tendring, north-east Essex
Britons do love to be beside the seaside and hundreds flock to Essex’s so-called “Sunshine Coast” every year. The area takes in Clacton-on-Sea, Frinton-on-Sea and Manningtree, with a particular highlight being the Naze – a stretch of headland on the east coast, which is important for migrating birds and boasts a small nature reserve.
