  • When Brits were asked where in the world they would most like to own a holiday home, the UK proved to be the most desired destination.

    A study from Hitachi Personal Finance found that 9% of people would like a holiday home without the need to reach for a passport, beating competition fom Australia, St. Lucia and Cyprus.

    But if you're considering investing in the UK, which location will generate the most income?

    Bath was the clear winner last month, at an average revenue of £2,221 per holiday let.

    It was followed by Oxford and Brighton and Hove which saw returns of £2,066 and £2,066 respectively.

    The data came from AirDNA, which combines and analyses AirBnB booking data with ONS stats on the most visited cities in the UK.

    Vincent Rebou of Hitachi Personal Finance said: "A holiday home can seem like an attractive investment.

    "But with global markets seeing their fair share of turbulence recently, it can be hard to identify where is best to invest in, which could explain the surge in popularity of UK holiday lets and staycations."
