Help! Looking For A Bargain Holiday Home

Recommended Posts

I have been in the market for a holiday home for some time. Where could I get something beautiful for a bargain price currently?

My budget is up to £1,000,000 million (can spend more but would rather spend a lot less) and only need 1-2 bedrooms (preferably 2 and more would be even better). I'd like to be near water (lake or sea) or on a moor/out in the sticks, the location doesn't matter (I live in the North-West so not there though please). It needs to be something unusual that will let well. Could be anywhere in UK - Devon, Wales, Norfolk, Scotland all appeal but it has to be somewhere tourists will want to go.

I definitely do not want something like this: (Local to me and the most ridiculous thing I've ever read about)!!!!!

I've looked at the following but been disappointed:

https://www.onthemarket.com/details/1657856/

https://www.onthemarket.com/details/566758/(this was seriously strange as a concept, 1/5th share, totally ridiculous)

https://www.onthemarket.com/details/1253036/

Any ideas welcome...

Another bored desperate estate agent. :)

I am not an estate agent. I am looking for a place to buy. I shared some of the places I have been to see. They are all for sale with different estate agents.

Any sensible suggestions?

An advert for 'onthemarket' ? that failed EA experiment (because everyone still uses Rightmove and Zoopla only)

What rubbish… I am a BUYER… I use all the sites. I am going to look at this one soon:

Please give me some more ideas rather than being horrid.

I find Onthemarket is better for houses over £500,000. All the big agents defected there it seems. I am also using Zoopla but I do not bother with Rightmove as much.

use of caps and defensive reply says it all really.

Says what? I'd like some advice on where to buy a BARGAIN holiday home for under £1m. Why are you being so nasty?
