Britain is a cold, wet and miserable place to be, right? Well, whilst there are plenty of places that fail to see much sunshine at all, even in the height of summer, there are still plenty of places in the UK that can give many of Europe’s best locations a run for their money.
In turn, those that love Britain but hate the weather may find that buying or renting a holiday home in some of the warmer parts of our fair country will allow them to get the many benefits of living in Britain without missing the best of the weather.
It may seem that best places to be will be in the south, and whilst this is true in part, it is worth remembering that the west is also surprisingly clement, warmed by the Gulf Stream that makes its way up the western coastline all the time. As such, certain places in Wales have their own microclimate and those living in North Wales are often as tanned in summer as those in Southern Europe.
As such, finding holiday homes in North Wales may be just as appealing as finding holiday homes in Cornwall, another location that benefits from weather much warmer than the British average, but that the cost of caravans for sale in North Wales is a great deal less.
Also, in the list of warmest places are the Isles of Scilly and the Channel Isles of Jersey and Guernsey. However, whilst these may also be great places to get away to, the cost of reaching such islands will be a great deal more than a drive to North Wales, making this latter choice not only more financially appealing, but also far less touristy and therefore potentially more appealing in many other ways too.
So, for those who think Britain is just cold and wet, getting out to those places in the very south or the west may well help to change your mind.
