Holiday Home Ownership Made Easy with Cornish Escapes

Do you own a holiday home in Cornwall?  If so, we would love to hear from you.  At Cornish Escapes, we are always ready to welcome new properties to our growing portfolio of quality holiday homes in Cornwall.

Read our blog to find out more about Cornish Escapes and why we are your best option for Cornwall holiday cottage management.


About Cornish Escapes

We are a family-run holiday letting agency, based in St Ives.  We started out over a decade ago, under our original name of ‘Escape to St Ives’.  As we began to expand into other lovely Cornish towns and villages, we changed our name to ‘Cornish Escapes’.

Today, we have a large portfolio of holiday cottages, houses and apartments in Mount’s Bay, Hayle, Newquay and Padstow as well as St Ives, Carbis Bay and Lelant. 

 


Letting Your Holiday Home Through Cornish Escapes

Our team is small enough to offer that friendly and personal service, but large enough to cater for everything you need, from sales to maintenance. Our founders, Louise and John, have over two decades’ experience in Cornish tourism and many of the team have been part of the Cornish Escapes’ family for many years.

We understand that managing a holiday home on behalf of an owner is about more than marketing and occupancy rates, although we do excel at these aspects too!  It is also about caring for your property, making sure that it is properly looked after and treated with the utmost respect. 

Unlike many other agencies, we put no restriction on owners’ own use, so it still feels very much like your own home. 

Importantly, we are local.  Increasingly, owners are opting to let through agencies like ours because the team really understands the area and is on hand to help both owners and guests.  This gives you a lot of advantages, from knowledgeable marketing to always knowing the right trades and suppliers to call on.  

To find out more, take a look at the owners’ page on the Cornish Escapes website.


Where We Operate

Cornish Escapes manages holiday lets in St Ives and the surrounding area, including Carbis Bay and Lelant.  We have expanded into Mount’s Bay, which encompasses Marazion, Penzance and Mousehole.  On the opposite coastline, we are delighted to manage holiday lets in Hayle’s exciting North Quay development.  Further afield, we have recently taken on lovely properties in Newquay and Padstow.

At the moment, we offer a fully managed service in St Ives, Hayle, Lelant and Carbis Bay.  However, our comprehensive marketing service is available for holiday homes anywhere in Cornwall.  Let’s take a look at the two different services…
