84% of respondents said they had received more holiday let inquiries since the onset of the pandemic in 2020 and 48% had even seen more enquiries since restrictions were lifted earlier in the year.

In addition, brokers were asked what the most popular regions in the UK for holiday let enquiries were over the past 12 months. For 54% of respondents, the South West of England was the most popular location, followed by Cumbria and the Lake District (26%), the South Coast (23%) and East Anglia (14%).

These responses emerged during a recent Hampshire Trust Bank webinar on staycations and holiday let mortgages, which had nearly 100 brokers in attendance.

Louisa Sedgwick, Managing Director, Specialist Mortgages at Hampshire Trust Bank said, “These findings show there is still significant demand for holiday let mortgages. The staycation boom we witnessed during the pandemic shows little sign of abating in the short term.

“The fact that almost half of brokers taking part in the webinar have seen an increase in enquiries since Covid restrictions were lifted clearly indicates the strength of demand for holiday let mortgages in the UK.”
