Turn your home into a holiday cottage
Average prices, popular locations & features revealed
For the second year running, we’re set to have another ‘Great British Summer’, with Brits flocking to all corners of the UK to enjoy a staycation.
According to the UK’s leading holiday rental marketplace, Snaptrip, 99% of holiday lets are already fully booked for the summer in popular areas of the UK* - leaving thousands of Brits facing limited choices and extortionate prices.
However, for those who are lucky enough to have a UK escape booked, experts have revealed how, with a few simple steps, you can cover the cost of your own staycation by transforming your home into a lettable holiday cottage. Sounds like a pretty good deal, huh?
So, how much money could you make? Holiday cottages in the 2021 hotspots; Cornwall, Devon, the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Scottish Highlands, are commanding average stay figures of up-to £1,112. And, for those who live in less expected towns and cities, average stay rental fees start at around £500. These include:
