South Devon self-catering specialist, Coast & Country Cottages, have moved into stunning, newly designed contemporary offices overlooking the beautiful Salcombe estuary.

Following their ninth successive record year and an ever-expanding team, this forward looking agency is planning for exciting times ahead. With key new positions recently added to the team of 22 and plans for further recruitment in place, the team based in the stylish new development at Hannaford’s Landing in Salcombe needed new space in order to continue to offer the high level of service for which Coast & Country Cottages has gained a local and national reputation. Andrew Jones, Partner, explains ‘Three years ago we moved into our original offices in Hannaford’s Landing but in this short time the growth of the business and the expansion of the team has seen us fill the entire space! When the larger waterside premises next door became available at the end of 2009, we were delighted to have the opportunity of taking both spaces and knocking through to create a huge open plan contemporary office space which can accommodate a team of around 32.’

Designed and installed by Chadwick Design Solutions, the glass and steel offices look out over the Salcombe estuary, with the hills of Salcombe and the yachts in the Boat Park beyond! Karen Jones, Partner, comments ‘We are all very lucky to live and work in the beautiful South Hams, but our team are delighted to now be working in such an inspiring new office development. We have an aggressive business plan for the next 5 years and some exciting new opportunities ahead, and this new expansion plus our investment in the latest telephone systems, new bookings software, plus the success of our recently launched new website demonstrate our commitment as the largest holiday letting agent specialising in the South Hams.’

The new office space accommodates the Sales & Marketing teams and the Management team with a new area also now created for the Property Services and Administrative teams. A new meeting room, visitors’ reception, new post room and staff facilities are all now available. The offices are within the Hannaford’s Landing development on historic Island Street in Salcombe, developed three years ago to revive this historic boatbuilding area in the sailing town. Coast & Country Cottages also have a Dartmouth team based in the centre of the picturesque South Devon town.

With bookings for 2010 currently over 10% higher than this time in 2009 and a portfolio of over 425 properties exclusively in the South Hams, the southernmost tip of South Devon, the team at Coast & Country Cottages are working harder than ever to encourage those thinking of booking a UK holiday in 2010 to choose the South Hams rather than anywhere else and to book with Coast & Country Cottages rather than with anyone else! With an extra 330 weeks booked so far, worth around £300k more than this time last year, it looks like their hard work is paying off. And with such stunning water views, the team will now just have to look out of their own office window to continue to extol the delights of this beautiful area of outstanding natural beauty!
