How to create the perfect holiday home in Northumbria to increase your holiday let income

With many customers travelling with Northumbria Coast & Country Cottages every year, we know what holidaymakers are looking for.

We do understand that every property has its own charm, but there are a few ways to give your property that extra appeal and increase your income! Look at our 5 top tips below to find out how to attract even more customers to your property.

  1. Make your property pet-friendly

As ‘staycations’ are becoming increasingly popular, more and more people are looking to take their furry friends on holiday. Pet-friendly breaks are now one of the most searched-for criteria, especially in Northumbria which is the perfect dog-walking county! As a result, going pet-friendly can increase your holiday let income. The increase in pet ownership is taking effect with 35% of 2022 bookings including dogs.



  1. Offer Wi-Fi to your guests

Good Wi-Fi is an accommodation priority for 29% of Brits, with 38% now more likely to work from home while on holiday compared to before the pandemic. As much as we’d like to believe that people leave their phones behind on holiday and enjoy some relaxing time out, this simply isn’t the case. Many holidaymakers actively search for properties that offer Wi-Fi so they can share photos of their trip online, or keep in touch with family back home.


  1. Accept short break bookings

Short break bookings can increase off-peak income and can help to fill up those empty spaces in your calendar. Short breaks are becoming increasingly popular with guests who are looking for a last-minute getaway without having to book too much time off work. To find out more about the benefits, and how short breaks can improve your booking levels give us a call on 016658 30783.


  1. Invest in a hot tub

It goes without saying that many holidaymakers these days are looking to stay somewhere a little different, and experience some degree of luxury in comparison to their own home. Hot tubs are extremely popular and provide your property with year-round appeal. Allowing guests to make the most of their holidays even out of season.

According to the Sykes Staycation Index 62% of guests seek properties with hot tubs. And holiday lets with hot tubs earn 54% more than those without.

You don’t need a huge garden either – even just a small patio, lawn, or covered area (including outbuildings) make a great spot for a hot tub! If you’d like some more information or some advice on local hot tub suppliers, just give our friendly team a call on 016658 30783.


  1. Opt into Income Maximisation

The most important way to make the most of your holiday let is to ensure it is always being sold for the best price possible. Our Income Maximisation tool constantly monitors the current booking trends in the market and adjusts the price of your property according to demand.
