We live in a popular surf village in Devon where during the Summer holidays a huge percentage of local families upsticks and rent out their houses to holidaymakers. We’ve now joined their ranks and have successfully let out our house now a handful of times.

It’s not up everyone’s street but for families who want to travel or save it’s definitely worth the effort. Here’s why:-

Are some of us born to travel? Is there really a gene that gives us the desire to be on the road? Are we escaping to leave something behind, merely inquisitive, looking for answers or just thirsting for adventure?
