Starting from humble beginnings in 1988, Toad Hall Cottages has since grown to become the largest and most recognised holiday cottage company in the South Hams. Local offices now span four counties (Devon, Dorset, Cornwall and Hampshire) with the company HQ sitting in the market town of Kingsbridge. The South Hams is where the majority of the 650 properties can be found with a great variety of holiday lets from cosy, thatched fishermans’ cottages to incredibly stylish cliff-top penthouses. However, the company’s portfolio spreads across the whole of Devon, with Dartmoor and the Dorset borders both areas that the company is expanding into.

Dedicated property and marketing teams work closely with owners to ensure they are getting the maximum exposure and the best financial return for their property and are always on hand to offer free and impartial advice to potential owners who are considering holiday letting or looking to invest in a holiday home. The marketing strategy is built around the property based on a number of different factors such as the number the property sleeps, its location or the property’s facilities, using multiple methods including dedicated online advertising campaigns, affiliate partnerships, PR, directed newsletters and social networking. The new website that has been worked on for over 12 months with the in-house team has proved a great success, with visits to the site and bookings showing huge increases on previous years.

Understanding that an owner wants to enjoy their own property, Toad Hall Cottages do not dictate how many weeks an owner can use their property but instead work around the owner’s needs to ensure they receive the revenues they require.

Awards are a great endorsement of the personal, customer-focused service and a commitment to excellence. Toad Hall Cottages has gained the accolade of Quality Accredited Agency from Visit England as well as gold and silver awards in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 respectively in the British Travel Awards, which is voted for solely by the British public. Importantly, the company’s offices are manned by local staff who know and are passionate about the regions in which we operate (not a faceless call-centre as many larger agencies operate). With 98% of our guests recommending our service (according to independent review site Feefo); Toad Hall Cottages really does provide an unrivalled standard to both owners and guests alike. The addition of a property support service means that owners can relax, safe in the knowledge that it will be looked after regardless of any issues that may arise.
