An Airbnb superhost has revealed for the first time in nine years, that her summer calendar is not full with bookings. Kathryn Flett, has been left wondering whether the Great British staycation has run its course.
Kathryn said she had a “bumper post-lockdown staycation season” last year.
Her property was fully booked from May to October.
This year, however, is a different story; she has a lot of availability.
“Usually, all the school holiday weeks are fully booked by early May, but this year I still have availability in July and August,” she explained, “as well as the months either side”.
Recent figures also suggest that Cornwall has 12,776 of them.
Of which, more than 11,000 are holiday lets.
In Cornwall, the tourism sector is the biggest employer – supporting one in five jobs.
