As the UK gradually emerges from what we hope will be our last ever lockdown, our focus returns to once again making plans for that longed-for vacation with friends, family and loved ones. As an airbnb management company, we know that many UK residents are thinking of a break at home in the UK, and may be looking at holiday homes. And whilst travelling abroad certainly has its perks, one thing the last 12 months has certainly demonstrated is just how blooming beautiful our own country is. Property owners will certainly want to consider enlisting the help of airbnb management services when they offer rentals from their property portfolio. Airbnb management companies can assist with guest communications, guest services and managing the property listing, such as help with arranging professional photography. Our airbnb management service makes your experience as host of a vacation rental hassle free, taking care of guest communications, and offering a full management service covering cleaning, housekeeping and more.
The UK is host to some of the world’s most stunning areas of natural beauty just waiting to be explored and, whether you’re a couple looking for a romantic escape or a family looking for a fun-filled, adventure-packed coastal get-away, there is plenty to choose from. A good property management company will help a property owner to maximise their rental income, advising on the best pricing strategy for the location and season, considering holiday lets and business travelers.
But if you’re planning a summer escape, you’d better be quick – places are booking up fast, as peak season is close. So, to help shimmy you along, here are our top five picks, from the perspective of property management services, for the perfect post-lockdown staycation:
For those looking for a peaceful, romantic trip for two where you can enjoy each other’s company undisturbed, the UK offers a plethora of options. In the past few years the English countryside has been increasingly popular for short letting, making an airbnb listing in rural areas a good choice to maximise rental income. Our pick? Why not go back to nature and cosy up in this charming lakeside shepherds hut, offering undisturbed views of the Worcestershire Countryside? As an airbnb host, you can be assured that the best property management companies will ensure your home sees no property damage, as they will provide guest screening and round the clock support from the moment guests arrive.
Ideal for ramblers and cyclists, Worcestershire is also located near the picturesque market town of Pershore, offering independent shops, bars and restaurants as well as the Mediaeval Pershore Abbey. It’s a prime spot according to any airbnb property management service. Planning a trip in August? Be sure to pay a visit to their award-winning annual Pershore Plum Festival. Airbnb management companies recommend property owners choose traditional holiday destinations, such as pretty rural areas, to maximise their occupancy rates.
There are few places offering such a winning combination of views, five-star accommodation and activities to suit all, but Dartmouth on the Devonshire coast, has it all – and more. Sitting along the River Dart, this pretty historical town is home to the 600 year-old Dartmouth castle, offers plenty of boutique shops, bars and restaurants and is just a stone’s throw from Devon’s many beaches and hidden coves.
To make your stay extra special, take in the views at this stunning three-bedroom hillside Dartmouth home complete with hot-tub and the best views in the area. As a host, airbnb management companies will make guest management easy and hassle free for you. They’ll take care of the entire property, from check in to check out, enlisting an independent third party, such as a housekeeping team and local teams to provide professional cleaning. Flexible letting is always an option if this suits you.
Sometimes a cottage stay in the country with your friends or family is just the tonic to help you let your hair down in private, and after the past year, we can’t think of anything better to get the joy flowing through our veins. As it happens, we also have just the ticket! Airbnb management companies are always keen to list vacation rental properties in idyllic towns, like Redditch, which is sure to see guest bookings rolling in over the summer months.
This four-bedroom luxury secluded barn conversion near to the Worcestershire town of Redditch sleeps seven and is close enough to the town centre to enjoy a spot of dining or nightlife, but private enough to relax and enjoy your company in peace. It’s therefore in a prime location for the short let market, and likely to see a high occupancy rate over the summer.
For those who love nothing more than being surrounded by rolling countryside and pretty, old English village life, look no further than the Cotswolds. Airbnb management companies will be awash with listings in this area over the coming months, and with good reason. This vast area of outstanding national beauty is truly enchanting and offers the best the country has to offer – views, dining – being home to multiple Michelin starred restaurants, fantastic walks and much more. A property management service can arrange professional photos for your airbnb account, to really highlight the beauty of the area – the occupancy rate is sure to fill up, especially with short letting. It’s sure to win rave guest reviews.
We can’t recommend enough a stay in this charming two-bedroom cottage in Moreton-on-the-Marsh, in the North Cotswolds in Gloucestershire. This Saxon town offers plenty to see and do, including exploring the surrounding area, the town’s many art and antique galleries and enjoying a spot of afternoon tea. You can even take in a spot of falconry at the nearby Cotswold Falconry.
After a year of numerous Zoom calls, Skype’s, Houseparty calls with friends and endless film and TV series, every one of us can be forgiven for feeling in need of a digital-detox. Airbnb management companies are certainly aware of the nation’s need to get away, and offering a rental property in a scenic area is a perfect way to earn money. An airbnb management company will make the process hassle free for you as a host; they deal with cleaning fees, guest communication, offer tailored services, and manage upcoming bookings on your behalf. The best airbnb management companies can even arrange professional photography as part of their services.
If that sounds like you, then you’ll be pleased to know that there are options that allow you to go completely off-grid and just spend some time in the here and now as nature intended. Those that enjoy a spot of fishing will be particularly interested in this surprisingly modern Off-The-Grid Secluded Fishing Lake Cabin. If, however, you do fancy heading back into civilisation for, say, a meal out, the town of Evesham is just a short drive away.
If none of those take your fancy, there are plenty of other options to bring you your perfect post-pandemic staycation this year, but let’s be honest, this list is a pretty good start! Consult our airbnb management services for any queries about listing a rental property online, whether for short term rentals or long term contracts. We can help you to make more money from your rental property, as part of our premium airbnb management services.
