Short Term Holiday Lets

Mortgage applications are soaring for UK short-term holiday lets

 If you have thoughts of getting away any time soon, then you may have considered the idea of a short term holiday let.

Short term holiday lets are a great way of getting away from it all, and best of all, staying somewhere that’s like home.

Usually a holiday let like this, taken out on a short term basis will be an apartment or house and will usually come with all of the facilities that you would expect in a modern home. It’s your home away from home, and it gives you a great amount of flexibility in that you can come and go as you please, and you will have complete privacy when you are in the property.

Compare this to a holiday village, camp site or multi let where you don’t necessarily have your own private space and convenience to come and go as you choose without disturbing others.

With everything that we have been put through in the world recently, many people are looking to holiday closer to home at the moment, and you may find that a short term holiday let is just the thing for you.

Before you book anything too quickly, then check first on the best deals on holidays and insurance.

It’s always a good idea to double check any vacation you book, especially if you are going for a short term holiday let. Reviews about house rentals are always wise to read.


Especially in the UK, you are never far from a site of interest. As a result, holiday lets are available all over the country, and any one of these could see you close to an area of interest.

With so much to see and do in UK cities, the country is not short of holiday stay locations in any of the major cities. Each one is full of history and things to do.

If you’re looking for something a little quieter, then worry not as you’ll find holiday lets close to your chosen country retreat.

The whole country really is not short on holiday destinations, and the take home message should be that there is something on your doorstep if you do not want to travel far.


You will most likely only be able to take on a holiday let on a weekly basis. Fees are going to involve a booking fee, the weekly rate and then any extras on top.

Extras will vary from booking to booking but may involve the use of extra facilities on site should they exist.

Bear in mind that there may well be a booking deposit.

Carefully check with the person letting the property what their terms are regarding deposits, especially surrounding cancellations.

You may wish to make use of generous cancellation policies in order to book and reserve your favourite place whilst still carrying on your search for the perfect property.

Cancellation fees can often be high so check in advance.

Happy holidays!
