Vicky Gunn, 42, had a busy and stressful life as an accountant when she bought a beach cottage in 2014.Seven years later, she left her job to own two cottages and run six more for different owners.
“All of our cottages sold out on record this year and we’re busy midweek right now.
Melanie Whitehead, president of the Walton Beach Shack Owners Association, said everyone thought she was “crazy” after buying her in 2008 for £ 6,000.
“Now people are almost in panic buying them, and over the past two weeks they have increased by thousands of pounds,” she said.
