  • Holiday Lets

    South Cotswolds

    We are thinking of buying a one or two bed apartment or cottage in the South Cotswolds as a holiday let. The areas we are thinking of are around Tetbury, Cirencester, Painswick, Stroud. Anyone have any experience of holiday letting in this area - I'm not sure what the market will be like?  

    We can't afford the North Cotswolds (the Slaughters,  Bourton on the Water etc - real chocolate box land) and they are a bit further from where we live. Would love to hear any success stories of letting in South Cotswolds?.

    Hi Vicky,

    I don't let in these areas, so just a general comment from myself.

    If you look on Rightmove, there will be "going concerns" for sale.  One way to tell if it is a holiday let, is when you see towels on the end of the beds in the pictures. Smile

    If you buy a "going concern", you will be able to access the books to see what the occupancy has been like.

    You can also contact holiday let agencies and ask for the their advice as to occupancy levels.

    Another option, is to book a holiday yourself in your preferred area and then strike up a conversation with the owner about how much occupancy they achieve.  This will also give you a chance to see what your competition are doing and what sort of standards they are setting.

    I hope that someone with actual experience in the area comes along to input, and I wish I could be more helpful, but I hope those few pointers help a bit?
