The Holiday Lets Company is proud to announce that it has achieved its first goal of having 100
customers advertising on the website! The holiday lets website, which helps promote Caravan and
Cottage holidays; self-catering holiday homes and B&B’s in the UK, has been live now for only a few
months yet the support and interest from our new and potential customers has helped us achieve
the first goal of many!!

We have high hopes and ambitions for the upcoming year of 2012 and with your support we
can maximise our exposure and boost our cliental base. We aim to be the biggest and most
comprehensive holiday homes rental Uk website based in Cornwall by January 2013! Our
original target was only to focus on the area of Cornwall and Cornish Holidays. However, with
our popularity, we are now expanding to the rest of the South West; sooner than expected. With
continued success we will be reaching out to the rest of the UK and eventually Europe! With our
customer base growing by the day, the Holiday Lets Company is confident it will meet its next goal.

Our next step is to become the most popular website in the whole of the southwest region, topping
other advertising sites and agencies. As always we aspire to be the best, and with our continued and
growing support we have already, we will meet our goal.

The Holiday Lets Company, as always, promises to be there for you, the holiday home owner, with
a solid commitment structure and a dedicated team to help you. We are just a phone call / email

Ignite competition saw the potential in our company as out of hundreds of new businesses in the
southwest, we were picked to be in the final 10; we were the only holiday specific business to get
this far!! This pinnacle business competition, with extremely reputable judges, was a real experience
for us and helped to understand how important the customer’s needs are. That is why we have
a dedicated team here to answer your questions 24/7. We want you to feel like you can talk to
someone no matter how big or small you question may be.

We firmly stand by our belief that with the right commitment and support from the team at The
Holiday Lets Company, anyone can make a success of letting their own holiday property without the
need and hassle of an agency.

The Holiday Lets Company is a holiday home rental Uk website that will help promote ‘Staycations’.

Staycation is a new word combining the words ‘stay’ and ‘vacation’ to describe the trend of holidaying or vacationing at home or in the uk. In recents years the amount of people going on holidays abroad has almost halfed. This is partially due to the credit crunch but also because families can still relax and escape from the norm by going away from home for a couple of weeks and venture into the countryside; possibly for a Cornish holiday?

This is why the popularity of self catering holidays which are prodominantly Caravan and cottage Holidays have risen in upcoming years. In the southwest alone there are over 30 Caravan and self catering holiday home parks. This is why The Holiday Lets Company will benefit the cottage holiday or self-catering holiday home owners in the southwest.

Among the most popular searches people make in looking for self-catering in the UK cottage holidays is in Cornwall. But we will also gradually feature most other parts of the holiday homes rental UK and Ireland wide.

After a busy day exploring your surroundings, enjoy a glass of wine as the sun sets. With our self-catering holiday homes you can, so all you have to think about is getting yourself out into the great outdoors. Another great thing about escaping from your normal home and taking on a selfcatering holiday is that it’s a lovely change of pace and scenary for the family.

Young children especially associate their family home with the routine of going to school gpig to bed and doing homework, so why not allow the whole family to escape to a rural cottage holiday home or maybe a adventurous and exciting Holiday Park in one of the many amazing Selfcatering holiday home parks throughout the uk!

 

Exciting news for the business this month; We entered a local business competition called the “Ignite” Competition. Being a primarily Cornish holidays website, we felt the Holiday lets company would have a lot to offer! We do plan to expand the business to holiday property rentals Uk wide but starting with Cornwall, we felt would give a unique angle.

The competition would promote a new Cornish business that could potentially win the chance to have £100,000 worth of advertising grant and professional guidance from experts in the industry for the first year from the businesses launch date.

We submitted our initially Cornish holidays website business plan, which would promote caravan and cottage holidays and entered the competition along with 72 other hopefuls who all submitted their business plans. Out if this 72 only Ten would be chosen to enter the final!!

It has been on the cards for a while, but having an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) for holiday homes becomes a legal requirement in time for this summer season. If you rent out a property for four months or more in any 12 month period, this new Department for Communities and Local Government regulation will affect you.

 

And it’s worth taking seriously. It’s your responsibility to make sure you have the relevant paperwork in place when the regulation comes into force on June 30, 2011. If you don’t, you run the risk of incurring hefty fines of up to £200 per rental.

 

It may sound bad on the surface – another piece of paperwork for holiday home landlords to worry about, additional expense and yet more legislation to consider. But it’s not all negative. As well as being quick, easy and cheap to arrange, an EPC can help you promote your property and save money in the long-run.

 

What is an EPC?

Split into three sections, an EPC provides holiday homeowners with information on their property’s energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions. The first section shows the energy efficiency rating of your property – ranging from A (high) to G (low). The second section uses the same A (good) to G (bad) rating to show the environmental impact of a property in the form of CO2 emissions. The third – and most important to you – is the recommendation report.

 

Cutting costs

From fitting low energy light-bulbs or loft insulation to installing double glazing or replacing your boiler, the recommendation report offers various energy-saving solutions split into low and high cost categories. As well as doing your bit to reduce carbon emissions, you’ll save yourself some cash at the same time. Although you aren’t obliged to follow any of the recommendations, improving your property’s energy efficiency could dramatically reduce your energy bills – particularly handy at a time when energy is getting steadily more expensive!

 

Greater appeal

And that’s not all either. Environmental protection and carbon reduction has often been top of the agenda in the media and politics over the last few years, and people are becoming ever more aware of environmental issues. You can’t have failed to notice that the demand for green consumer options is everywhere, and the holiday market is no different. Improve your EPC ratings and you could add an extra incentive with which to promote your holiday cottage to rent to potential customers.

 

Get it done

Shop around. There are numerous companies that will come and carry out an assessment for you, keeping the prices competitive. EPC assessments can be carried out for as little as £25, and certificates currently remain valid for ten years under current regulations. Watch this space though, as the validity period is set to be lowered to between three and five years when the Energy Bill comes into play in August 2012.

There are an increasing number of people taking cottage holidays within the United Kingdom. This is understandable when the benefits are considered, with a range of holiday homes available to suit all requirements, age ranges and preferences.

Most of the cottage holiday homes are self-catering and therefore offer a great deal of flexibility. This accommodation makes it possible to have the all the comforts of home while on holiday, rather than with a hotel-based holiday where paying for room service costs a great deal of money. There are many British people that enjoy the convenience and comfort of cottage holidays.

Self-catering cottage holidays allow you to make the most of being on holiday while still allowing you the freedom to cook your own meals. Most of the holiday cottages are fully equipped and come complete with everything that you would find in a typical home.

One of the main reasons why cottage holiday homes are so popular is because they are cheaper than traditional hotels, making them very popular with a vast array of people, particularly families, as self-catering arrangements make it a lot easier to have a peaceful holiday with children.

Having a holiday within self-catering accommodation makes it easier to dine out and enjoy the local restaurants, as there is no pressure to eat in the complex you are staying in.

Cottage holidays are also the perfect choice for people that are taking a holiday as part of a big group. The holiday homes make it possible for large groups to enjoy a holiday in accommodation where there will be no other people, therefore less chance of complaints if they decide to party into the early hours of the morning.

There is a huge range of different cottages and holiday homes on offer and many of these will advertise the benefits of booking a holiday within the local area.

Perranporth, meaning ‘Saint Piran’s Cove’ and taking its name from the patron saint of Cornwall, is a small seaside resort beside the Cornish holiday behemoth of Newquay and a perfect escape for self catering cottage holidays.

A popular family getaway, Perranporth is famous for its surf. Situated just a few miles down the coast from England’s surfing Mecca, Newquay, the rip currents of the three-mile stretch of beach create some interesting flat-sided waves that, on a good day, have been known to curl and snarl like the rips of the Pacific.

However, Perranporth is much more than just a stop along the surfing landscape. Nestled away in the sand dunes which stretch for almost a mile inland are the ruins of the 7th century church that Saint Piran founded. Swallowed almost a thousand years ago by the consuming sands, it was unearthed again hundreds of years later and is seen one of the true relics of Celtic Cornwall and a herald of Perranporth’s ancestry. The church was lost again in the early 1970s, but it has not been forgotten, as the local council and conservation societies aim to make it accessible once more to the public in the near future. The attractive ancient ruins and weathered rock are, however, still a staple attraction and lend a peerless view over the dunes which stretch into a gently rolling sea backed by sunsets that pierce through the arches of rocky outcrops.

Perhaps just as scenic are the rolling waves of the Atlantic that crash onto the fine, uncluttered beaches. The magnificent sand dunes that stretch back almost a mile from the coast provide a perfect playground for those interested in exploring the adjoining cliff sides, naturally formed rock arches and stacks.

Another result of the deep and mysterious history of the area is Perranporth’s inter-Celtic annual festival, Lowender Peran, which traditionally draws in a crowd from the six neighbouring Celtic nations alongside a plethora of international revellers. The festival is a celebration of Cornwall’s unique traditions and heritage in music, dance, song and its rich practice of storytelling, which stretches back over tens of centuries. The festival is a registered charity that was set up to recognise the deep historical and cultural links of the area. First started in 1978, it has grown in popularity and its stature continues to increase year after year.

Further south, the cliffs slope and plunge into the ocean and suddenly you are faced with the towering height of Cligga Head, 232 feet high and a must-see attraction of astounding natural beauty and cultural significance. The nearby mine helped to kick-start the tin industry in Cornwall in the 1800s and announced the second coming of Cornwall as a major county in Britain. Just aside from Cligga Head there are a vast range of cottages, holiday homes and private rentals that are a mere stone’s throw away from all of the attractions that Perranporth offers.
