Cornwall alone has been named one of the UK’s most profitable places to run a vacation rental and, in turn, one of the most expensive to rent.

Beating London, Glasgow and Manchester in terms of average cost per night, Truro was named one of the UK’s top-grossing cities to own an Airbnb, according to a recent study,

Manufactured beds conducted the study to determine which UK locations will increase the value of an Airbnb listing per night, with Airbnb becoming a reliable source of income for many across the county.

He revealed that Truro came in ninth place with an average price of £ 92.50 per night, making the city’s Airbnbs more profitable than the London average of £ 90.20 per night.

Newcastle took first place at £ 122 per night on average, followed by Leeds at £ 121.60 and York at £ 120. Exeter came in fourth with an average nightly rate of £ 118.60.


Bath arrived at the same average price per night as Truro, with London, Belfast, Bristol and Manchester all lagging behind.

Edinburgh apparently charges the least at an average of £ 64.40 per night with Aberdeen and Birmingham also less than £ 80 per night on average.

Crafted Beds said that with the increase in the number of holidaymakers on vacation, Airbnb is once again becoming a reliable source of income for many in the UK.

Airbnb has come under criticism of late due to the growing number of Airbnb rentals in the county but the lack of long-term rental accommodation in Cornwall.

The Cornwall council also said people who bought houses from the council were breaking the rules by renting them out as Airbnb vacation rentals.

Airbnb recently hit back at growing criticism saying the business is “built on helping people pay for their homes and making communities stronger.”

He said: “Across the UK the majority of guests share space in their own home and almost half of UK guests say the extra income is an economic lifeline. Accommodation is typically rented for around 40%. nights per year and travel on our UK platform generated economic activity estimated at £ 5.1 billion in 2019 alone.

As the pandemic has shifted travel trends from large cities to more rural areas, travel on our platform has boosted income streams for families and communities. “
