Luxury holiday lodge company Darwin Escapes is seeing a surge in enquiries as people shun foreign holidays in favour of a staycation.
It comes as British temperatures soar higher than Spain and bookmakers slash the odds on the summer of 2018 becoming the hottest on record.
Darwin Escapes sells luxury 5 star facility lodge living set within glorious countryside settings in locations including Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Somerset and North Wales.
Shaun Roberts, Head of Sales for Darwin Escapes, said: “We have been inundated with enquiries from people keen to make the most of the scorching temperatures sweeping the country which are set to stay this summer.
“With Brexit and the weak pound, people are fed up with the hassle of heading for an airport this summer and increasingly prefer to holiday in style - and own - in the UK.
“Today’s Staycationers want ownership in achingly cool boutique living lodges complete with exceptional dining, pampering spa treatments and a range of 5 star facilities.
“They’re buying their own holiday lodge because they want a home from home experience, somewhere that it’s easy for them to come to at the weekend with family to unwind and which they can bring their pets.”
Darwin Escapes has eight stunning locations for holiday home ownership including Cheddar Woods in Somerset which has its own on-site farm shop featuring produce from the local area and Hawkchurch Resort & Spa in Devon which has a 5 star hydrotherapy pool and is pet friendly.
Last month the company unveiled its most expensive ever holiday home – the £399,999 luxurious Lookout lodge on a beach side plot in Aberconwy Resort & Spa, famed for its Signatures Restaurant and voted the Best Restaurant in Wales. Designed by an interior designer with all mod-cons, the Lookout came with its own wet room, split-level balconies and decked terraces, and sold within hours.
