Why invest in the Cotswold property market…
If you’ve decided to become a landlord but are still debating the location, read on. As experts in the Cotswold property market we want to share with you why we think the Cotswolds are the perfect rental investment location.
We see a lot of tenants wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of London whilst remaining close enough to commute into the city for work. The Cotswold’s is a popular choice, which is great news for landlords as great rental properties are always in demand.
A great commuter-friendly location
One thing that helps the Cotswold property market remain buoyant is just how easy it is to commute to the surround towns and cities. A few of our favourite commutable spots are towards the South, just above the M4. Here you will find Wootton-Under-Edge, Malmesbury and Badminton.
For tenants who commute via train, the areas of Cirencester, Fairford and Cricklade are close to Kemble station, where trains run into London Paddington in 1 hour 14 minutes. Plus Kingham and Charlbury stations also serve Paddington.
The larger station of Oxford Parkway has trains running into London Marylebone throughout the week and weekends. Another great commuter train route is Banbury station in the North, less than an hour into Marylebone. Here the towns and villages of Chipping Norton, Deddington and Shipston-on-Stour prove popular with tenants.
Great for couples and young families
As well as being great for commuters, the proximity of the many Cotswold villages to larger towns and fabulous cities, coupled with the tranquil setting in spectacular countryside, makes it a great draw for both young couples and families. There is so much variety across the whole area – from properties in the centre of a village to those situated on the edge of a town and rural country homes set in large grounds. It is easy to see why the Cotswold property market is a great place to invest.
The Cotswolds offers tenants more space
We know from experience that Cotswold properties can meet the needs of tenants looking for more space than their current city location can offer. Many tenants are looking for space to set up a home office, and growing families want a property with outdoor space. Plus, with many of the Cotswold villages and towns surrounded by great schools, it really is a very family-friendly location.
We hope you agree the Cotswold property market is a great opportunity for those looking to make the perfect rental investment location. Why not have a browse around the landlord information for further articles and information aimed at supporting landlords every step of the way?
