Holiday letting success

With 2022 just around the corner, now is the time to begin making plans for the future.

Whether you’re thinking about starting your holiday home renovation, considering letting your holiday home to the public for the first time, or are trying to optimise your letting income potential by utilising the skills of a specialist agency, the team at Cornish Cottage Holidays can help you to kick start your 2022 plans.

There’s no better motivation for change than the extraordinarily high customer demand we are seeing for 2022 self-catering accommodation in Cornwall. In the current climate, correctly priced, styled and marketed holiday properties should be achieving superb booking levels, particularly those that have made changes to reflect ever evolving customer requirements. For instance, following the pandemic, customers are more likely to opt for holiday cottages with gardens or outside space, meaning owners who invest in the upkeep of outdoor areas will surely reap the rewards. 

Flexibility is also crucial – allowing short breaks will boost your property’s appeal, especially out of season. Bookings for three-night getaways for winter 2021/2022 are 111% up on 2019! Similarly, allowing dogs will give you around an 11% higher income potential than accommodation counterparts that aren’t pet friendly.

So, why act now? Cornish Cottage Holidays Property Manager Janine Woods explains: “Making plans now, before the start of the new year, will put you ahead of the game, allowing you to maximise bookings for the forthcoming season. Our peak booking period is fast approaching, so if you are in a position to get your property live on our system before the post-Christmas booking rush, you will be well-placed to enjoy a lucrative 2022.”

She adds: “The benefits of securing bookings early are numerous, including the opportunity to optimise your pricing, and the knowledge that your income is guaranteed for the coming months. Plus, with the exceptional service we offer, including 24/7 on-call support and optional property management, you will be safe in the knowledge your property is in excellent hands.”

Whether you are well-versed in holiday letting or are new to the industry, one thing is for sure – those marketing their property with Cornish Cottage Holidays are almost guaranteed a great return on their investment in 2022!
