Richard Tuke used to be based in Manchester as sales and marketing director for a major house builder but now runs his own property company on Anglesey. He said: "There is a continued appetite for property as an investment and safety net for a pension, but people now want to make use of and enjoy that investment as well so the holiday home market has remained strong.
"These buyers want something that has already been refurbished to a high standard with top quality fittings and something they can just lock up or that can be easily rented out to help them off-set the costs. The standards are getting very high.
"The other factor that has influenced prices here and demand has been the Lake District's decision to ban high speed craft from Windermere. All the skiers and powerboat racers have been looking for an alternative base and many have ended up in north Wales.
