Static caravan ownership numbers in Wales are some of the highest in the UK, we take a look at one of the most acclaimed caravan parks in the country which has become the holiday home destination of choice for the rich and famous.
Almost a decade on from the economic downturn, domestic holiday numbers have remained fairly stable. However, with the uncertainty surrounding the future of free movement across the EU and value of the pound abroad, could more UK residents opt for a staycation in the future?
With its beautiful beaches and fantastic countryside, North Wales is the favourite location for an increasing number of British residents as well as international holiday makers who are keen to take advantage of the many natural wonders and visitor attractions which the area has to offer.
When people do visit Wales for a holiday, they tend to stay longer in comparison to breaks taken in England. According to Visit Britain’s figures; holiday makers in Wales tend to stay an average of 3.4 nights compared to an average of 3 nights for those opting to stay in England. This further underpins the many visitor attractions available in North Wales which helps to keep holiday makers entertained for longer.
With its many visitor attractions and eclectic mix of beach and countryside settings, it is easy to understand why North Wales is becoming an increasingly popular holiday destination in UK. The region has been a regular fixture in the top ten regions in the world for travellers to visit in Lonely Planet’s annual Best in Travel list and there is a large contingent of holiday makers coming to the area from places such as Cheshire, Manchester and the Wirral.
One increasingly popular option which is being taken up by British residents who are happy to holiday in the UK is holiday home ownership. This is no longer a poorer alternative to international breaks with companies such as Darwin Escapes having invested heavily in their resorts in recent years to achieve 5 star standards which are comparable with anything you would find abroad.
This is best exemplified at their Aberconwy Resort & Spa in North Wales which is a superior 5 star gated resort situated alongside Conwy Morfa beach and within a stone’s throw of Conwy Marina. Set in a 12.5 hectare estate protected by 24-hour security and a fully manned entrance lodge, Aberconwy Resort & Spa contains only privately owned holiday homes, occupied by discerning property-owners drawn by the delightful surroundings, friendly atmosphere and exceptionally high standards of service.
It has even become the destination of choice for the rich and famous who are keen to exploit the high standards of luxury which it affords to its exclusive community on-site. Indeed, Aberconwy made national headlines earlier in the year when it sold a £400k luxury lodge at its highly desirable resort, proving just how much some people are willing to spend in order to become part of its exclusive community of 5 star holiday home owners. So what is it that makes it so special?
For starters the facilities available to owners are second to none. The estate is served by a members’ country club featuring a hairdressers and health club, spa and an award winning restaurant.
Signatures Restaurant is owned and managed by award winning Executive Chef Jimmy Williams. Together with his exceptional team, they have helped the Restaurant become one of the most popular in the region and earned a place in the prestigious Michelin Guide.
Also available on site is Langley’s Country Club, where owners can take advantage of a whole range of facilities including: state of the art equipment, two spacious fitness-suites, a luxurious pool, steam room, jacuzzi as well as holistic, wellbeing and beauty therapies at the Aberconwy Spa.
The feeling of unrivalled luxury extends also to the holiday homes for sale here, all of which are produced by only the best UK manufacturers and are made up of luxury lodges & state of the art static caravans. Occasionally used static caravans and lodges become available to buy on-site, which combined with low finance options which are currently available has helped ensure that holiday home ownership has become a more realistic proposition for the majority of Brits than ever before.
Owning your own holiday home allows you a greater deal of flexibility in terms of how frequently and how long you can stay in your favourite holiday destination. There is no need to search for the latest last minute deals or try to avoid the inflated peak season and summer holiday prices, you can visit anytime at your convenience.
At 7%, Wales has the highest proportion of tourists in the mainland UK who stay in static caravans that they own, compared to England and Scotland which only register 1%. With such a competitive market, you need to have something special to stand out from the rest and this is certainly achieved at Aberconwy Resort.
Another major selling point with the resort is it ideal location, with it being situated close to the medieval walled town of Conwy, as well as being just a short walk from Conwy Marina and Conwy Championship Golf Course.
The resort also resides alongside the beautiful Conwy Morfa beach, where the long and curving sands look out to the Great Orme. Aberconwy is also within easy reach of Snowdonia National Park - plus it’s ideally situated just off Junction 17 of the A55 North Wales Expressway, which links directly to Holyhead, Chester and the M56 and M53.
