As a holiday let owner, you naturally want maximum bookings and for people to enjoy staying at your property as much as possible - The best way to achieve both of these things is to show off the features your property naturally has, and offer great additional features that guests will love. It's often the little things make all the difference! Happy guests mean more bookings, and more bookings means a successful business!
Probably one of the most important aspects of a holiday let - Location, location, location! You will ideally be close to beaches and major attractions, or if in a rural area, you can try to add additional features like WIFI, a log burner or hot tub to attract visitors to stay at your property. Try to think of something quirky and unique!
Famous for having many picturesque harbours, Cornwall and its restaurants are lucky enough to be able to easily get some of the freshest seafood available, because there are still many working fishing ports, in fact one of the biggest working harbours in the UK is our very own Newlyn!
When you think of a picturesque Cornish fishing village, most people would agree that Mousehole (pronounced Mowzel) is likely what you will be imagining. It’s small yet picture-perfect authentic Cornish harbour is surrounded by quaint granite-built houses, shops and galleries. Its compact harbour walls give protection form the harsh winter waves, in the 13th century it was the main port in Mounts Bay until the 16th century when Newlyn and Penzance took over, not much commercial fishing takes place here but you will find small local boats anchored in the harbour. A beautiful village with, galleries, gift shops, cafes and restaurants.
