The rising demand for West Country holiday homes

Tue 22 August 2017

Thinking of buying a holiday let business in the West Country?

For the past 12 years, Stags Holiday Complexes department has been selling a variety of tourism-related properties across all four corners of the West Country. During this time, we have seen the market grow from strength to strength as greater numbers of buyers are looking to invest in this beautiful part of the world.

In the last year alone, Stags has seen a 23% increase in applicants searching for a West Country holiday let business and with so much to offer both short and long term visitors, we can’t say we blame them! In recent years, an interest in health and fitness tourism has become increasingly popular, with yoga and wellbeing retreats popping up all over the South West. This corner of the country is especially rich in art and culture, which has become another common theme particularly in the creative hotspots of the South Hams and North Cornwall. 

According to Visit Britain, the tourism industry is developing fast; the tourist board is forecasting a 6% increase in inbound tourism over the 2016-2017 period and a 14% increase in the total spend, bringing it up to £25.7 billion.

Whether buyers are considering the purchase of a house with cottages, to expand their business or even take on a holiday park, Stags Holiday Complexes department’s highly personal service and excellent local and market knowledge makes us best placed to help you with your search.
