Woolcombe, with an enviable national reputation, has a long tradition as a tourist destination, with one of the best beaches in the UK, the adjacent coastline is dramatic, bordered by fabulous rural countryside, much of which is owned by The Natural Trust. The traditional UK holiday season, from say Easter to the end of September, has changed over recent decades, now extends throughout most of the year. Perry Mears continues “We are seeing many of our tourist industry clients current planning or undertaking major refurbishment and upgrading projects throughout the westcountry, embracing modern standards and styles, looking to attract higher rental levels and an increased occupancy rates. We are currently actively planning various projects for the quieter letting periods, towards the end of this year, into 2025. Timing is key, as is the careful planning and tight management of works,which invariably involves numerous aspects and trades. Careful planning reduces risk, significantly increasing the prospects of a project being completed on time, and on budget.
