Holiday Homes by the Sea: Investing at The Links, Rest Bay

July 18, 2022

Has the recent sunshine got you searching for property by the sea? Situated moments from the spectacular beach of Rest Bay and overlooking the renowned Royal Porthcawl Golf Club, if you’re considering a second home or investment opportunity, find out why our award-winning homes at The Links make the perfect summer bolthole.

With demand for holiday homes accelerating over the past few years, and more Britons opting for a staycation, Wales has been gaining increasing attention as a top destination for property investment. Making up approximately three-quarters of the Welsh population, South Wales is a particularly attractive destination with its stunning scenery, growing economy, and home to the Welsh capital of Cardiff.

With the “race for space” set to continue as more of us look to move to rural and coastal homes, investors are benefitting from this shift in demand and the results speak for themselves. At The Links, investors can expect to see rental yields of up to 10.6% and earnings of up to £58,000 per annum from holiday lettings*, well over the 5% annual rental yield average in South Wales.

Unbeatable holiday homes by the sea

And it’s not hard to see why rental yields are so high. Standing proudly overlooking Rest Bay, one of the UK’s top surfing beaches, The Links provides the ideal destination for those looking to invest in homes on the coast. A year-round haven for water sports enthusiasts, walkers and beachcombers of all ages, the homes are situated just a stone’s throw from the Welsh Coast Path. Here residents can enjoy a number of relaxing walks on their doorstep including Pink Bay which is accessible on foot in under 20-minutes.

Blending old with new, The Links features the conversion of a Victorian Grade-II listed building along with a collection of carefully designed new build homes in Phase 2. With a long-standing commitment to the re-use of existing buildings at Acorn, we were able to restore and convert the historic structure, breathing new life into this extraordinary building.

The new build element encompasses a contemporary style, with views over the beautiful communal courtyard and the same high-quality specification. Residents can live in a unique apartment with modern energy efficient features including underfloor heating, communal electric car charging, high performance window systems.
