Cornish holiday agency signs 100th property

A north Cornwall-based letting agency is celebrating the 100th property joining its portfolio, driven by a strong demand for its self-catering holidays.

Beach Retreats, which has been operating since 2006, has seen a 25% uplift in bookings year-on-year, which has resulted in the portfolio growing by 30% in 2015 so far.

The agency is also excited about demand for Cornish holidays in 2016, having seen a 96% increase in its advance bookings – providing the business with stability for growth.  Demand for group bookings are also on the up, prompting the agency’s need to take on larger houses and apartments.

This is no accident. Beach Retreats has significantly invested into its business to ensure guests receive a full and exciting experience, from the moment they begin their holiday research right through to arrival and beyond.  Inspiring video-led content on Beach Retreats’ website clearly inspires holiday hunters, whilst the agency’s new mobile concierge app looks after guests from the moment they make their booking.

Beach Retreats’ business manager, Andrew Easton, comments: “For us, it’s all about creating a well-rounded service offering. We always try to be one step ahead of our guests – whether that’s filling the fridge upon arrival or recommending things to do and places to eat”

It’s imperative for businesses such as ours to react quickly to consumer needs. Cornwall remains a premium in-demand UK destination in and out of the peak summer season, but we must continue to exceed demand and expectation to ensure the interest is here to stay.”

Beach Retreats has beach-side properties county-wide along 80 miles of coastline, from Sennen Cove to Widemouth Bay.
