Cornwall Living 2018

Sparkling new additions

We catch up with West Country cottage agency, Helpful Holidays, which has just added 22 new properties to its portfolio.

With an impressive collection of around 700 West Country cottages already on its books, this family-run agency continues to go from strength to strength. In fact, Helpful Holidays recently cleaned up at the prestigious British Travel Awards, winning two customer service awards and ranking in the top three UK medium-sized cottage agencies!

So, what sets Helpful Holidays apart from the crowd? With friendly support, flexible terms, local knowledge and experience at the core of what the team does, as well as a massive range of properties to suit all needs, you can be sure to find what you’re looking for, whether it’s a cosy bolthole or a place to gather the whole gang.

Take Bonny Alva, for instance – a roomy new addition to the team’s portfolio, overlooking St Austell Bay. With a golf course nearby for those partial to a leisurely nine holes, as well as four bedrooms and a tranquil veranda with 180-degree sea views, it’s sure not to disappoint.

Then there’s Orchard Lodge, just 800 yards from Boscastle’s harbour. With close proximity to the coast and five bedrooms of beautifully finished accommodation, this property is an ideal base from which to lace up your boots and head out exploring.
Perhaps being close to the famous surf break of Praa Sands is your idea of an escape. The Hayloft, just two miles from Praa Sands and equal distance from the rugged mining landscape of Rinsey Cove, promises to put you in prime position to explore some of the finest spots on the south coast.

Would a combination of quietude and access to seemingly untouched areas of the Cornish coast be more your cup of tea? If so, consider Treveth – a bright and airy retreat on the edge of St Agnes, also a popular surf spot. Within easy reach of the beach and the local pub, Treveth is perfect for a quiet escape from the stresses of everyday life.

So, why not let this impressive holiday cottage agency live up to its name? If you have a property and would like a free appraisal of its letting potential, or if you’d simply like to find out more about the company’s huge portfolio from the Helpful Holidays experts, be sure to get in touch.
