About Select Villages

Select Villages is proud to present to you a unique opportunity to buy a distinct part of a 4 star luxurious holiday cottage, serviced by central leisure facilities, based in areas of outstanding natural beauty in the UK. Select Villages with its associated companies owns and manages these luxury resorts in this niche hospitality industry.

Select Villages has currently developed Stoneleigh Village in Devon and is in the process of developing other sites in areas of outstanding natural beauty in the UK.

All locations will provide a range of leisure experiences that include 4 star self-catering accommodation, gym, swimming pool, tennis, cycling, nearby fishing, boating and shoots and other traditional leisure choices. From breakfast to dinner, all Select Villages have a complete food and beverage choice for quality dining. All accommodation is rated a minimum of 4 stars providing space, privacy and a home from home experience.

Experience in this niche hospitality industry allows us to offer an 8% net annual return on Selected Ownership and a further 8% uplift on exit from ownership. Our associated operations company has seen unparallel occupancy levels, validating the notion of a healthy Return on the Select Ownership Investment to the shareholders. Additionally, Selected Ownership returns on the cottage shall be prioritised from the value of the asset.

Select Ownership Model

The main features of our Select Ownership model are:

  1. Every cottage is owned on a 199 year lease upon completion by a limited company (‘SPV’- Special Purposes Vehicle);
  2. The expected value of every cottage on completion has been assessed by an independent valuer;
  3. The SPV which will own the cottage owned by the shareholders shall be allocated 100 shares in the SPV
  4. You, the shareholder, may purchase up to 49% of the shares in the SPV. Under the legal agreements, you will enjoy the following priority payments:
    1. All monies used to purchase the shares in the SPV;
    2. All monies that are owed to you as fixed annual returns;
    3. All monies that are owed at the point of exit from the Select Ownership of the cottage.
  5. The developer retains 51% of the shares in the SPV. Under the legal agreements entered between the shareholders, the developer will not be entitled to a single penny from the shareholding until you, the shareholder, are fully paid all your entitlement;
  6. You may purchase up to 49% of the shares by yourself or with other people that you know or with other parties that have expressed a similar interest. To make life simple, you will be allowed to buy 10%, 20%, 30%, 40% or the full 49% of the shares in the SPV;
  7. 49% ownership of the shares entitles the shareholder(s) to 25 days of free use of the holiday cottage in the mid-to-low season. In value terms, this usage amounts to an extra 3% per annum return on your shareholding;
  8. During your Select Ownership you will not be expected to make any further payments towards: ground rents; service charges; utilities payments; wear and tear of furniture; renewal of furniture; insurances; non-domestic business rates; ongoing expenses of the SPV. In short, the legal agreements are there to protect you from becoming liable for any ongoing regular expenses;
  9. You will be required to retain your ownership of the shares for at least 2 years whilst you enjoy all the benefits of ownership;
  10. Between 2 – 5 years you will have the Option to sell your shares, fixed at the rate of 8% increase on your purchase price;
  11. After 5 years we will have the Option to limit your ownership of the shareholding by buying them back from you with a fixed rate of 8% increase on your purchase price.

We are confident that you will conclude that the Select Ownership model offers you a true opportunity to become a genuine co-owner of a holiday property whilst earning 9.6% - 12% returns on your purchase price.

The Select Ownership model is exceptional in that it has all the benefits of a high return investment without the high risks. Your purchase price and the promised returns shall be fully prioritised from the value of the cottage.
