Barefoot Retreats can assist you in finding and marketing your holiday home.

Buying a holiday cottage is a great way to ‘live the dream’ and increase your income. It not only allows you to enjoy wonderful holidays and weekend breaks with family and friends, but by renting it out when you’re not there, it can also pay for itself and provide you with a regular income.  With North Norfolk’s proximity to London; being only two hour’s drive away; and because this area attracts visitor’s all-year round, the area is generating considerable interest from investors.

The rise of the ‘staycation’, the frugal alternative holidaying abroad, is undoubtedly reuniting us with our beautiful country and all it has to offer, providing hope for those who want to supplement their income or pension. More and more people are now looking to purchase holiday homes because they are anxious to put their money into an investment which will earn them more than possibly putting it in the bank.

Owning a holiday home can be immensely rewarding too, whether you elect to decorate and furnish your property to a high standard yourself or invite Barefoot Retreats to renovate, refurbish, style and furnish it on your behalf.  We are here to find and create you a fabulous luxury holiday home that you will love and we know would appeal to a discerning clientele who are seeking a luxury property to spend their precious down-time.

We have hand-picked a selection of beautiful properties for sale in North Norfolk and would be happy to assist you in finding your ideal luxury property in the right location and assisting you in calculating your projected revenue to market your property through Barefoot Retreats.

We now have our very own Estate Agency business, Barefoot Estates, so we can match you with the right property to provide you with the perfect holiday home and a return on investment too. Please contact Kirsty on 01485 512638 or email her at or visit our website to find out more.
