When we built our holiday home in Nethybridge we didn’t realise the additional maintenance that would be set up to do for life. It is bad enough having a large house in Edinburgh with a big garden that constantly needs weeded without having the same 150 miles away.
Added to this putting in technology for me such as the Sonos, Nespresso machine and internet access – our guests are a little confused about how all this technology works! This means we get a few phone calls over the summer to explain how to get ITV2 or Radio 4 on the gadgets – or make a skinny latte!
So my advice to anyone who thinks that having a holiday home is a good investment – would be double the workload of your existing home and think how much time you would have left over..Tweet
