Dumfries & Galloway in top 20 Most Affordable UK Locations for Spring Bank Holiday Getaways!

Recent data released by Holidaylettings.co.uk, the UK’s leading holiday home website and a TripAdvisor company, has put Dumfries & Galloway in the UK’s top 20 most affordable locations to rent a holiday home over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend.


Rates for a two-bedroom rental in Dumfries & Galloway average £240 for the three nights of the bank holiday, from 26 to 28 May. Many of the locations on Holiday Lettings’ list are on the coast (as shown on their interactive map infographic here) highlighting top spots to enjoy the spring scenery and sunshine… without overspending.


Saskia Welman, spokesperson for holidaylettings.co.uk, says the data shows holidaymakers can get away for a bank holiday break without breaking the bank:


“Most two-bedroom properties sleep four people, so for just £20 per person, per night, you can really make the most of the long weekend. And where better than Dumfries & Galloway? With its spectacular sea panoramas and inviting green landscapes, it’s perfect for a bank holiday break.”
“Holiday homes are gaining in popularity all the time” continues Saskia, “winning against traditional hotel stays with advantages like space, facilities, privacy and incredible value. And as this demand grows, owners are generating extra income by renting out their homes with us.”


Listing your home or spare room on TripAdvisor Rentals is free, with owners paying just three per cent commission on bookings.
