the summer months, many Britons turn their focus to their well-deserved
holidays. As we enter fully into another holiday season, you may be considering
all your travel plans: where you’ll stay, eat and sight-see during your
vacation. But here’s a question you may not have pondered before: is purchasing
a holiday cottage more beneficial than letting one from someone else? Here are
three reasons why we think purchasing a holiday cottage is the better
1. You’ll always have a place to go on holiday.
When you choose to purchase a holiday cottage, you’re actively seeking
residence — if only occasionally — in an area you love. Purchasing a cottage
in Yorkshire means you’ll always have a place to stay during holidays, even
during peak tourist season. What’s more, purchasing a holiday cottage gives you
a reason to go on holiday more — after all, you’ll want to make use of it
enough to make it worth your investment.
2. You can use it as a stream of income.
Many cottage owners let their property temporarily to others whilst away. By
owning your own holiday cottage, you are providing yourself with another way to
earn an additional income whilst you’re at your regular residence. The more
attractive the location of your holiday cottage the more lucrative your
letting-endeavours can be. Just be sure to block off certain times of the year
when you have your own access to the house as well.
3. You’ll have a place to retire when you become a pensioner.
Perhaps you have a lovely flat in South London now, with all the attractive
features that come with living in such a grand city. But what happens when you
become a pensioner? Perhaps then you’d rather be somewhere else, away from the
hustle and bustle of the city. By owning your own holiday cottage, you’ll have
a place to live — an extended holiday of sorts — throughout the remainder of
Owning your own holiday cottage has many advantages. If you’re interested in
