Financial Profile
The business has yet to start trading in any serious capacity however market testing has reassured the current vendors that each cottage has the potential to generate £800 per week Mon-Fri.

Taking a view on a 70% occupancy rate this would give an income of circa £80,000 per annum producing a return in the region of 10% on initial investment which can of course fluctuate and the letting structure can vary depending upon the buyers business model.
