Welcoming a new face

Savills is proud to be bringing some fresh talent and local expertise into the residential sales team this summer.


Having lived and worked in north Cornwall for over 14 years, Penny Bolton has plenty of expert knowledge in Cornish properties to bring to this prestigious estate agency as their new Associate Director, having previously worked for John Bray Cornish Holidays with a portfolio of rentals across north Cornwall whilst managing a team of 20.

“My relationship with north Cornwall extends back to my childhood and having spent many happy holidays on the beaches of Polzeath, I knew from a young age that it was where I wanted to settle down,” Penny reflects. “Having married into the military, it was several years before I was able to make that dream a reality, but since moving here in 2008, I have never looked back. North Cornwall has it all. The incredible landscape never fails to impress, and the lifestyle is superb – unlike anywhere else in the UK.  

“I am hugely excited to join the team at Savills. The role is an opportunity for me to use my passion for the area alongside my personal and professional knowledge to extend our reach into north Cornwall.”

Commenting on Penny’s appointment, Chris Clifford, Head of Residential Sales for Savills in Cornwall, said: “We have grown our residential business considerably in recent years, enabling us to capitalise on the exceptionally strong market conditions over the last couple of years and the demand from people choosing to re-locate to Cornwall. Using our local market expertise and considerable network, we have been able to help hundreds of buyers and sellers make their move.

“I am delighted to welcome Penny to our team. Not only is she exceptionally knowledgeable about – and very well connected within – the north Cornwall market, her energy and enthusiasm is second to none. I have no doubt that her warmth and expertise will be well received by buyers and sellers alike, in turn helping us to build on our track record of selling many of Cornwall’s best homes.”

Penny’s new role for Savills will see her take the lead on residential property sales within the north Cornwall market, with a focus on the area between Newquay and Bude, and we’re sure she’ll bring her own drive and expertise to an already flourishing team.
