Ride the staycation boom by investing in a holiday property

If you plan to ride the staycation boom by joining the growing number of people investing in a UK holiday let investments, SDL Auctions may have just the property for you in its national property auction this month.

A two-storey lodge in a country park just 20 minutes from the Cornish coast is one of several properties with holiday appeal going under the hammer with the UK’s most successful live-streamed auctioneer*.

The three double bedroomed 128 Hengar Manor in St Tudy, Bodmin can be found in Hengar Manor Country Park and, with a **guide price of £37,000+ and the support of a managed country park, auctioneers believe it makes a great first foray into holiday letting.

Managing director and auctioneer Andrew Parker said: “This is the perfect property to ease yourself into a hassle-free holiday let, as the lodge is fully furnished, maintained by Hengar Manor and the site is already highly sought-after, eliminating many of the usual challenges.”

The leasehold property has two storeys, with an open-plan living dining kitchen, one bedroom, a bathroom and a shower room on the ground floor, plus two further bedrooms and a balcony on the first floor. It also features storage and a patio area.

It sits within Hengar Manor Country Park, which has around 35 acres of parkland and extensive facilities including a fishing, golf course, tennis courts, indoor swimming pool, sauna and games room, plus a restaurant, lounge and pizzeria.

The park provides an excellent base from which to explore Cornwall and its coastline, with Pencarrow House and Gardens and the resorts of Port Isaac and Padstow just a short drive away.
