Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

IN a land­slide vic­tory, York beat off nine other des­ti­na­tions to be voted the most pop­u­lar choice for a sec­ond home in the UK.

A poll by new homes por­tal whathouse.co.uk, 66 per cent of read­ers voted York top choice. The city was fol­lowed by Devon with nine per cent and then Scot­tish High­lands with seven per cent. Bath and Cornwall tied at five per cent, while Brighton bagged four per cent of the vote.

As­sis­tant ed­i­tor of whathouse. co.uk Lau­rna Robert­son said that while York is a vi­brant city with lots to of­fer, Cornwall and Devon were tra­di­tion­ally con­sid­ered more de­sir­able ar­eas for sec­ond homes. She said: “I won­der if the pop­u­lar­ity of York may have to do with the more af­ford­able homes for sale there.”
