"Staycations are experiencing a huge surge in demand and given the nature of UK self-catering breaks appealing to those looking for safe, environmentally friendly, cost-effective holidays, this is set to continue for some time to come."

Tips from a financial expert

Speaking with Rachel Springall from, she shared that:

"a holiday-let works similarly to a buy-to-let mortgage, except there are additional criteria for these loans which allow borrowers to let out the property to holiday makers".

Rachel added that

"as there has been a rise in UK vacations due to the pandemic, it’s understandable to see the potential to invest in a holiday home".

To dispel that daunting feeling, she suggests it’s wise to

"undertake thorough research into popular locations, weigh up tax benefits, read up on rules regarding residency periods and other potential expenses outside of utility bills".

A new homeowner's experience

Julie Brown, owner of 8 East Burton Cottages in Northumberland had this to say of her experience, after she started letting with us in 2021 following a three-year search for the right holiday cottage:

We’ve seen fantastic returns and investing in something tangible such as property, has been really successful for us. Not only do we have equity in the property, but we can also obtain a passive income through our guest stays.

What’s more, being part of the Original Cottages family has made the whole holiday letting experience stress free as we benefit from their national marketing, guest services and advice, as well as property maintenance. They helped to make the process of getting started a lot less daunting.”
