Factors that influence holiday let income

The key driver of your holiday home profit will be the level of annual gross income you generate for example, your revenue from guests.

Gross income is primarily driven by the number of people your property can sleep and the number of weeks the property is let out for.

In addition, the following factors will influence how much income your holiday home can generate:

  • The region of the country the property is in,
  • The location of the property and the local facilities available,
  • The quality, comfort and facilities within your home,
  • The degree of flexibility you offer with arrival and departure dates,
  • The ability to adjust prices dynamically to reflect changing patterns of demand.

The region and location of your property are obviously fixed once you have bought it. However, the remaining factors can materially affect your overall income.

These are the factors that we focus on at Manor Cottages, in order to maximise your individual property profit. With the backing of our parent company Sykes Holiday Cottages, we can offer a flexible pricing strategy.

Your potential income

Predicting income for holiday homes is dependent upon many factors, as outlined above.

However, investing in the right area of the Cotswolds will ensure you reap the benefits. Villages such as Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold and Castle Coombe are all big earners.

At Manor Cottages, we encourage our owners to set a floor price. This allows to you only accept bookings that are only worthwhile such as only allowing short breaks over Autumn or Winter.

Property costs

Having generated your gross income, there are various costs that must be deducted to get to your overall profit for your property.

For example, these costs may include:

  • Letting fees,
  • Housekeeping,
  • Gardening,
  • Utilities,
  • Business rates or council tax,
  • Repairs and maintenance,
  • Holiday lettings insurance.

You may also consider our fully managed services option saving you both time and money.
