3) Case Study: Second homes in British National Parks
Over the last few years, second home ownership in Britain has grown to the point where 1.6m of the
population of England and Wales have a second home in the country that they use for a month or
more each year. These second homes or `holiday cottages' are mainly used for weekends or short
breaks away in places such as the Lake District or rural parts of Wales.
