This year Cornwall has seen the wettest spring since 1910! Yet somehow the shoddy weather has failed to stop tens of thousands of Cornish Holiday makers flocking to our Cornish shores; this year especially with the Olympic torch making its UK maiden voyage through Cornwall. Starting at Land’s End it has attracted over 10,000 Cornish Holiday makers over the weekend and local business in Cornwall such as self-catering holiday homes, B&b’s and Hotels believe that the positive affect the Torch has had on the tourism industry in Cornwall will continue throughout the rest of the summer.
Also something that will help the self-catering holiday home industry in Cornwall this year is the fact that we have a lot of Public holidays coming up over the summer period. There is a double bank holiday in June, not forgetting that fact that’s there a half term holiday as well. And how can you forget the busiest time of year being when the schools brake up for the summer in the middle of July!
The holiday home rental UK market is by far the busiest at this time of year! People that own Self-catering holiday homes and Businesses will find this the most profitable time of year as well. Also, with it being the Queens Dubilee at the beginning of June, this will drive the locals out into Cornwall to celebrate – so it will not necessarily create new tourism sales but will sustain existing local profit. Self-catering holiday home owners can expect a busy summer this year as well with the Olympics bringing a lot of tourist from all over the world to our shores. This will in turn drive people that live in other areas of England to stay in UK for their holidays this year. The general feeling is also that Self-catering holiday homes and B&B’s will have their usual buzz this year due to the annual festivals and events that are going on in Cornwall during the Summer. Obviously the first being the Olympic torch coming through Cornwall driving the initial push of Cornish Holiday makers ready for the summer.
The next big event being the Queens Dubilee in June. Other important events like Fowey Regatta and the famous SAS ball; leading up to the classic Eden Sessions all the way through to Relentless Boardmasters in August! Cornwall is full of fun filled activities for all of the family whether it’s a day trip to Helston Flora or a weekend spent at a festival. So if you’re looking for a no fuss self-catering cottage holiday or something similar then come down to Cornwall and enjoy with thousands of others.
