5 health benefits of owning by the coast

Owning your own holiday home is a fantastic opportunity, and a seaside retreat is one of the very best ways to go.

The UK is filled with quaint little towns and stunning landscapes, but we feel that the areas across the southern coast have an undeniable and beguiling charm. From Devon all the way up to Suffolk, our holiday parks occupy fantastic coastal locations, with a little something for everyone.

Other than the undeniable beauty of the southern coast, it turns out there are many other health benefits to owning a place by the sea!

Better sleep

Breathing in fresh sea air is actually proven to help you sleep. Sea air is generally cleaner than you’d be used to in traffic-heavy towns or cities and the increased oxygen levels help you fall into a deeper sleep. Being well rested is highly beneficial to your health as it promotes a healthy immune system.
