Self Catering Market Dies in 2013

My wife and I spoke to a lady today who is well established for many years in the self catering business with top of the line cottages and houses for rent. She told us that the whole rental market is dead this year due to the late snow ruining Easter, and the poor economic conditions. I suggested that the tourist office is promoting "staycations" where British people holiday in their home country. Her response was "yes they are, they are staycationing in their own homes not travelling at all, and saving on petrol as well!". What a shame.
