- Renting rooms to mtbers, what do I need to know?
no matter how secure you think the shed is improve it, add CCTV and either get good insurance or put up an iron clad disclaimer that bikes are put their at the owners risk.
Don’t forget the obligatory wood burner and wood stack 😀
Might be best to speak to the local council about regs and planning etc and also maybe the local tourist board for support and advice.Posted 4 years ago
There’s a pub under 1 min walk, a restaurant & fast food 2 min drive & the trails are a 2 mile forest ride away or 10 min drive, so pretty good location.
No log burner, yet.
The secure bike storage can also be blocked in by customers cars/vans.
The change of use to property is thing I’m concerned aboutPosted 4 years ago
Hi guys, after a bit of advice.Posted 4 years ago
I’m thinking of buying an old but renovated cottage situated near a trail centre with the intention of renting rooms to mountain bikers on a self catering basis. There will be a double en suite room, 2 rooms with 2 bunk beds in each and a single room with shared use of the kitchen, lounge, bathrooms, secured shed, bike wash & drying room. I won’t be living there, just using it as a business.
I’ve stayed in dozens of b&bs which haven’t met any kind of regs but I will be doing things properly.
So my questions-
Do I need any kind of licence?
Do I need to meet any building regs for renting?
I’d prob be fitting lockable fire doors to bedrooms, smoke alarms and extinguishers.
So what have I overseen?
Thanks in advance
