As confidence in the recovery of the property market grows, buyers are taking the opportunity to invest in a weekend retreat to reap the benefits of a relaxing bolthole and a good long-term return on investing in bricks and mortar.

A second home provides a weekend oasis of calm, far removed from the weekday pressures of urban living. These Friday-to-Monday homes allow for an occasional taste of a rural lifestyle, as opposed to a complete escape to the country, and so are best found within the villages and pockets of countryside most easily accessible from urban hubs. By purchasing a weekend retreat, buyers are able to broaden their range of hobbies, favourite haunts and social circle. For many, access to specific sporting facilities is the main consideration when defining a search area. Investing in a second home on the south coast allows maritime-minded Londoners to spend their weekend sailing the Solent. Becoming a part-time member of a local community is attractive to those who live in towns and cities, with the village pub at the heart, offering good food and drink and a place to meet. Second-home owners in areas such as the Cotswolds are able to enjoy some of the countrys finest dining in smart pubs and local restaurants. With a new home, there is the opportunity to develop a new circle of friends, with whom one can enjoy the country scene. Many weekenders are keen to buy near Arundel to enjoy the summer season at Cowdray Park and Goodwood.

A weekend bolthole also offers the opportunity to buy a home which provides a real contrast in style to your main home - a complete change of scene when you escape for a few days.

Through its network of offices in the county towns of the areas most popular with second home buyers, Jackson-Stops & Staff has unrivalled knowledge of Britains weekend retreat market, with a reach extending from North Wales to the south coast.
