The new year is booking up with opportunities for homeowners

PUBLISHED: 10:33 15 November 2019




Here in the last leg of the year, next year’s calendar is filling up fast for holidaymakers. Their dream properties are following suit.

Festivals are announcing their summer dates, sports events have started flogging their tickets and touring shows have their plans set. Holidaymakers' own big life events are already in place with birthdays, baby due dates, weddings and more all bringing families and groups together to create lasting memories. So it's no surprise that they're hunting well in advance for the perfect accommodation to take their getaways to the next level.

In Cornwall, Porthilly Spirit has confirmed its upcoming dates and the Eden Sessions at the Eden Project have already sold out their "Inside Track" passes for next year. Add these to the beer, gin, folk and sailing fans who already have their eyes fixed on Cornwall and the county can expect to enjoy another hearty influx of British tourists.

Naturally, Cornwall property owners are already solidly booking the summer months, whether they're making the shift into the holiday rental industry or greeting holiday letting as old hat. Every year Cornwall gets busier and busier, which explains why clued-up holidaymakers are wising up by booking from now. Savvy homeowners are following the demand, not waiting to get their listings in order.


Get a firm grip on summer bookings

Whether you've carefully crafted gold star accommodation or you're only just starting to think about switching from residential to holiday letting, you'll want to greet the new year with the best head start.

Strategic planning is key. If you're a seasoned holiday rental business owner, you know nothing is worse than that last minute panic over any booking gaps in high season.
