The north coast has an incredible, rugged coastline as a backdrop to some of the best surfing beaches in the UK. Easily accessible from the A30 and A39, it isn't as far to travel as some parts of the county so is popular for short breaks as well as longer family holidays. There are lots of popular towns, but the right cottage can be more of a honeypot than the location. The easy access allows for a broader spread of property placements as guests can easily travel to beaches and attractions from the more inland locations. Character properties should make the most of their charm, with newer builds capitalising on stylish, modern interiors - interior designers can be your friend! A good view will always add to performance, but play to your property's strengths to see a good return on your investment.
When looking to buy a holiday let on the north coast, going concerns may come at a premium, so keep an eye out for places that could do with updating where you can make simple changes that will add value. There is still scope for starting from scratch, but as the popularity of the area has increased, it will cost you. Cornwall Authorities have eased up on planning since becoming a Unitary Authority, making it easier to get planning applications approved, but Listed buildings will always add additional time and money to any redevelopment plans.
At the end of the day, guests will always be looking for value for money - if you want a high return, you need a high quality product. The addition of a wood-burner will recoup its cost with additional bookings off-peak, and a flexible approach allows for a wider audience. Welcoming dogs is a must to keep the bookings coming in all year round. We're happy to give advice whatever stage of searching for a holiday let agent you're at.
