We work in partnership with you

We are a local, forward thinking holiday letting agency - very keen to attract quality properties to our portfolio. We offer a marketing service to holiday property owners that is a little different from other agents.

You provide a welcoming holiday property and we will work to maximise your bookings to a pattern that suits you.

We adopt a highly flexible approach and place no restrictions on the number of owner bookings.

Our competitive commission rate means that more of the holiday rent ends up in your bank account.

We work with a number of local holiday property owners where we complement their marketing effort and maximise bookings for their portfolio of properties.

What can we offer you?

We will promote your holiday property on our easy to use website. With live property availability and online booking, it’s quick and easy for holidaymakers to book your property. You stay in control through our owner log-in facility where you can manage your own bookings. Your holiday let(s) will be part of a marketing campaign that employs the latest online marketing techniques.

We will take bookings for you and confirm them by email to you and your holidaymakers. We will collect payments, deal with queries and changes to bookings (including paying you for cancellations) and we will ensure that you are paid promptly each month. Our success is dependent on taking bookings for you so you can be sure we will be working hard for our mutual success.

Managing your holiday property

If you are unable to manage your property then it is important to appoint a reliable caretaker to look after the cleaning and maintenance of the property and the wellbeing of your visitors.

Should you need to contact us for advice and support we are only ever a phone call away.

Thinking of letting?

If you’ve landed here then the chances are you are considering letting your home or holiday home on the short stay holiday market. We appreciate that this is a big decision and there are so many options available these days that it can be a daunting process trying to choose the right path.

The domestic holiday market has gone through a boom period in recent years, standing up to the economic challenges of the last decade and maturing as the country has got its self-back on track. The West Country has benefitted first hand from this growth in demand and as a result, the holiday let industry is thriving.

Recent reports on holiday trends suggest that demand is set to continue to grow as issues such as safety concerns, the stuttering value of the pound and global political and economic uncertainty put holiday-makers off the idea of committing to holidays abroad. To that end, a 2016 report by BDRC Continental found that 74% of people planned to take a UK based break in the coming 12 months.

Having operated in the industry for nearly 30 years, we’ve enjoyed the boom period as much as anyone, seeing dramatic increases in visitor numbers and an overall improvement in the quality of properties available.

2016 was another record-breaking year for Toad Hall Cottages and the trends outlined above certainly seem to be playing out.
