2011 Census shows Millions own holiday homes in UK or overseas

New data released by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows that in the 2011 Census, over 165,000 people listed a holiday home in the UK as a second address and a higher proportion listed additional properties overseas.

ONS figures said that according to the 2011 Census data, 165,095 people stayed at a holiday home in the UK for 30 days or more a year.

The UK local authorities with the largest recorded number of second addresses used for holidays were:

  • Cornwall – 10,169
  • Gwynedd (North West Wales) – 7,784

Gwynedd, which covers part of the Snowdonia National Park and the Lyn Peninsula, headed a league table of UK local authorities with the highest rate of people with second addresses, used for holidays, with 64 people from outside the area listing secondary addresses for every 1,000 usual local authority residents.

1.57 Million (2.8%) residents in England and Wales reported having a holiday home either in the UK, but under another local authority, or overseas, that they used for 30 days or more every year.
