Empty rural holiday homes are the key to meeting rental demand in the North East, claims regional property rental specialists GFW Letting.

The firm says that two and three-bedroomed homes in Northumberland that are being used as holiday cottages or are standing empty can generate a sizeable income for owners who should seize current market opportunity and let seasonal properties on an all-year-round basis.

Lorna Morris, from GFW Letting, said: “There are many landowners in rural parts of the region that probably have cottages sitting empty for the majority of the year which could generate a good solid income all year round. Holiday cottages in rural settings can bring income in from £400 per calendar month (pcm) up to £700 pcm. The demand for rural properties in north Northumberland has grown and a lot of people are choosing to rent.”
