Holiday homes have long had a romantic draw, and no more so than on the dramatic coastline of North Cornwall.

Why buy a holiday home?

Typically less vulnerable to the fluctuation, peaks and troughs of the stock markets, holiday homes are considered a relatively low risk investment. They have good yield potential, they give owners the ability to holiday at virtually no cost, they provide a range of attractive tax benefits, and offer long-term capital appreciation. Combined, it’s why seasoned holiday homeowners often have more than the one property.

While many will see their holiday home as a lifestyle investment, providing the opportunity to spend time together with family and friends, holiday homes have the potential to be strong income generators too. Making your property available for bookings in the peak holiday periods, choosing instead to stay in the shoulder seasons, will help to maximise this income potential.

Why buy a villa at Whalesborough?

Set in 450 acres of serene farmland running down to the coast, our collection of eight eco-villas, each designed by award-winning architects, is located in an idyllic meadow setting close to the North Cornish coastline. Here you’ll fi nd golden beaches, headlands, wild swimming and pretty villages all within striking distance.

Managed and marketed on our owners’ behalf, the villas have yields expected to reach £80-90,000 a year. We take care of everything, so you don’t need to worry.

Featuring green roofs with wildflower blankets, exposed timber cladding and traditional Cornish stone, the luxury single-storey eco-villas are part of the award-winning luxury Whalesborough farm resort, which is set to become net zero by Summer 2025, and entirely self-sufficient for both power and produce within ten years.

Available from £749,595, each villa comes with a large open-plan kitchen, dining and living area, four luxurious bedrooms with en-suites, and floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto private decking areas, a large garden, al-fresco dining, and stunning countryside views.

Fantastic facilities
On-site facilities include a state-of-the-art gym, Gaia treatment spa, steam room and jacuzzi, heated indoor and outdoor pools, tennis courts, restaurant, children’s play areas, fishing lake, woodland, meadow, coastal and canal walks.

Whalesborough prides itself on its family friendly facilities, appealing to parents with pre-schoolers looking for a touch of luxury, without the premium costs attached to the peak school holidays. That’s why we have our Little Farmers club, which gives toddlers and pre-schoolers the chance to have fur and feather encounters with everything from pygmy goats, piglets and Llamas to chicks and hens, encouraging bookings in the traditionally quieter periods of the year.

Throughout the summer months, we also offer tractor and trailer animal feeding experiences, taking visitors to meet our flock of Lyens sheep and herd of Dexter cattle, and on trips down to the coast. On top of that, we have outdoor play areas with climbing frames, swings, and an adventure playground too. There’s even a well-equipped under 6’s playroom.

What guidance will Whalesborough provide to me as a buyer?

We are on hand to guide you through the process of holiday home ownership. We have worked with owners for whom it is their first venture into holiday lets as well as those who have large portfolios.

We can provide onboarding calls to help with any questions you have, explaining the full process. We also offer site visits and try before you buy money back breaks if you go on to buy one of the three remaining villas. This way, you can experience what it means to be a Whalesborough guest, and owner, and you’ll have the opportunity to see where your villa will be sited. It also gives you the opportunity to talk about optional fixtures and fittings, such as hot tubs or plunge pools.

What will I be charged as an owner?

At Whalesborough, we believe in being completely transparent with our owners so that there are no surprises. That’s why we break down all the costs that you’ll encounter.

The good news is that these costs represent only a small fraction of the income you’ll make on your property and cover services that ensure both you and your guests have a holiday to remember for all the right reasons.

Wi-Fi: £175
Linen @£100 per changeover x 30 a year: £3,000
Cleaning @ £80 per changeover x 30 a year: £2,400
Welcome packs: £256
Hot Tub plus chemicals and service: £725
Window cleaning: £380
Service charge: £2,800 per annum
Electricity: £1,280
Water: £550
Insurance: £400
The W Club membership for owners
and holidaymakers staying in the villa: £825

Total cost: £12,791

Managed on your behalf, we take away all the hassle of finding service providers or maintenance teams, ensuring that your visiting guests have a trouble-free, five-star stay. And, should the worst happen, we’ll deal with it for you, providing worry free ownership. That’s lifestyle investment as it’s meant to be.

Property Management fees

In addition to site service charges, we charge a 30% + VAT management fee. This covers the marketing of your property to attract guests year-round, and includes:

· PR to secure coverage in the national media;
· marketing and promotional activity;
· e-communications with customers;
· an active social media engagement programme;
· maintenance of our website on which your villa will feature prominently;
· provision of a comprehensive and user-friendly online booking system.

Your management fee also covers customer service.

From the first time customers visit the Whalesborough website to the moment they return home, we’re here to provide a first class experience, ranging from answering questions and welcoming guests, to ensuring they have a fantastic holiday experience. It’s why so many of our guests return time and time again, and it’s all wrapped up in our management fee, giving you peace of mind.

And, because we only earn the management fee on the bookings that we take on your behalf, you can be sure that we use every trick in the book to maximise both your bookings and your earning potential.

Based on bookings for properties of a similar size to the villas at Whalesborough, including Whalesborough Cottage and Whalesborough Farmhouse, gross rental returns on your eco-villa (based on 30 bookings a year) are projected to be in the region of £90,000 per annum. From this figure, management fees of £27,000 would be deducted, alongside the on-site services and maintenance charges of £12,791.

For example this would give you a net annual return of approximately £50,209.
