It comes as more people look to stay in the UK this summer, with restrictions on travelling to popular destinations abroad due to coronavirus.

The top 10 locations are Dorset, Cornwall, Lincolnshire, Devon, Kent, Somerset, Essex, Suffolk, Norfol and North Yorkshire.

Gareth Irving, director of said: “The past 12 months have changed many parts of our lives, including how and where we travel.

“With travel restrictions likely to continue into the summer, we’ve seen a huge increase in interest and bookings for caravan getaways right across the UK.

“We anticipate this staycation trend will continue, meaning it’s a great time to invest in a holiday home, in particular a static caravan.

“We wanted to conduct this new study to help anyone who is thinking about investing in a caravan in the UK as it can be difficult to decide on the best location.”
