Why Holiday let investments are becoming popular

Over the past decade the UK tourist industry has grown to 10% of UK GDP. With concerns over the security of foreign travel and unfavourable exchange rates, more and more people are choosing an affordable ‘staycation’ rather than holidaying abroad. This growth in demand means the holiday lets market is very healthy, offering strong returns to investors looking for a steady income without the 3% stamp duty surcharge payable on traditional Buy to Let investments.

The Retreat at Romansleigh Park provides holiday makers with a variety of on-site facilities such as a club bar, games room and children’s play area.

An Investor’s View

One owner at The Retreat summed up why they switched from a Buy to Let investment…

“My tenants kept failing on rental payments and the upkeep on my portfolio of properties was becoming a real hassle.  The Retreat have guaranteed me an 8% return on investment for 3 years and I don’t have to worry about any fees or maintenance contracts. The big bonus is I get six free weeks every year to stay with my family in a top of the range luxury lodge in beautiful Devon woodland.” Mr A, Essex

A Holiday let could be TWICE as profitable as a Buy to let investment
