Blackpool has been named amongst the most popular towns where people want to have a second-home in the UK.

According to research, carried out by Lakeshore Leisure Group, Blackpool is the thirteenth most desirable town for a second home in the country.

The study analysed the Google search history of over 100 UK cities since the beginning of the first national Covid lockdown, to find which coastal and rural locations were being searched for the most in relation to second-homes and holiday homes.

There was almost 6,790 Google searches made by the UK’s city dwellers for ‘Blackpool second homes’ since lockdown began.

Overall, the research found that people are most interested in second home properties located in Salcombe, Falmouth and North Berwick.

Almost 20,000 searches were made on Google in relation to Salcombe properties.

A spokesperson for Lakeshore Leisure Group, said: “The combination of Brexit and the Covid pandemic has prompted city dwellers to find a way to regularly escape their urban homes and guarantee a much-needed holiday escape whilst international leisure travel remains so uncertain.

“The huge increase in interest for a semi-permanent rural escape since the start of Covid is easily evidenced in people’s online behaviour; Google Trends shows an all-time high for ‘second home’ searches in July 2020 which have remained high into 2021, and rising property prices in the South West and other rural towns and villages across the UK prove the interest is turning into serious demand.”
