Why wait for a holiday once or twice a year? With owning your own holiday home you can escape whenever you please. We have 3 ownership only resorts all located in North Wales. By owning your own holiday home at one of our resorts you are joining a community of people where you and your children can both make friends for life. And you can take advantage of the fact that you can finish work on a Friday and be at your holiday home within a few hours’ drive ready to relax.
