What type of AirBnBs are there?

With over 223,200 AirBnB* Listings in the UK since 2018, more and more people are transforming their houses, shepherds, huts and cabins into affordable, self-catering properties for people to holiday in. While traditional properties such as mansions, houses, cottages, bungalows, and flats do incredibly well on Air BnB, guests seeking AirBnB stays may want to experience staying in a completely different location from the standard four-walls of homes and hotels.

The most popular Airbnb in the world is a 100-sq-ft mushroom dome in California**, bringing home the idea that people want to be adventurous and try something new.

In 2021 the following style of outside-of-the-box quirky listings has been increasingly popular for people to book on AirBnBs such as yurts, cabins, treehouses, farms, boats, shepherds huts and more***.

How to build your own AirBnB using Cladco Products?

Have you ever thought about adding an AirBnB to your property? If you have, there are a few things Cladco can help you with.

Unlike the sunny beaches of Corfu, the Amalfi Coast and Spain, staycations in the UK cannot always guarantee hot and sunny weather. Staycations are more often than not going to have at least one rainy day per holiday.

This is why any AirBnB needs to have a leak-proof and high-quality roof. Cladco Roofing Sheets are manufactured to bespoke lengths, colours and coatings and can be installed on various buildings for protection and cover.

As well as a range of Roofing Sheets, we also offer Composite Decking and Wall Cladding, perfect for giving any AirBnB a durable, attractive and contemporary exterior, which does not have to be regularly maintained like traditional timber cladding or decking.
