The only way is up

With Cornish holidays still very much on the cards for customers all over the UK and beyond, Cornish Traditional Cottages are ready to tackle 2023 head on.

Having established a reputation for honest advice, personal service and long partnerships with owners and customers over the last 59 years, this family-run Cornish business remains steadfast in 2023, despite the uncertain economic climate. 

The last few years have been a real rollercoaster for those in the industry, and the Cornish Traditional Cottages (CTC) team have been working hard to ensure their holiday homes are providing great value for customers, ensuring owners of holiday homes can maintain their occupancy levels.

Although economic turbulence continues for 2023, CTC has seen a positive start to the year, with bookings now 27% up on the same period in 2022. Traffic to their website has increased by 34%, with time on the site up 60%, which just goes to show that there is an ever-increasing desire for holidays in this beautiful county with a local, family-run Cornish business. 

Providing value has been at the core of this family-run agency, and in response to the economic climate the team created a Help2Holiday scheme to ensure couples and families can still take their 2023 holiday, whist ensuring that owners can continue to maintain their occupancy levels, which so far has been very well received with customers old and new. 

Location, pet friendliness and quality are always important to customers when choosing their next self-catering holiday in Cornwall, and this year value is certainly one of the key drivers. Outside of the core school holiday weeks, CTC has seen a rise in the number of customers wanting to take a short break, so offering this flexibility will ensure you can infill those less popular weeks!

CTC markets all areas and all types of properties in Cornwall, and you can rest assured you will receive honest and realistic advice from the team about your holiday home. With such vast experience in the industry, you can be certain you’re dealing with experts in the Cornish market.
