When presented with an opportunity to run our own holiday cottage letting business, our plans for a mid-life gap-year were put firmly on hold! The Cottage Tree seed was sown following a thought provoking meeting with a local estate agent, and an aim to give guests a fine selection of holiday homes in some of the most beautiful places throughout East Anglia.
Having worked for many years in the holiday cottage industry, and enjoyed many family holidays in a variety of cottages and barns ourselves, we fully understand holidaymakers needs, expectations and concerns. We both live in Suffolk, and are able to give first hand knowledge and advice as to where to stay and what property to choose.
"Thank you ever so much for the best customer service I’ve ever received. I would describe you guys as excelling in 'old school' customer service, not pushy and not forced but very helpful, polite and professional and you went above and beyond for me." Guest: Phil, October 2017
"I was so impressed with the service Cottage Tree provided when I was looking for accommodation in the Suffolk area. Their detailed knowledge of the properties they list helped me make the perfect choice. We loved Greenacres - it is comfortable, spacious, well equipped and the hosts made us very welcome." Christine, August 2017
"I just had a look at your website and it looks absolutely fab. I couldn't fault it and it worked really well when I tried to make multiple bookings in my favourite cottages..... It's easy to use, well laid out and has a lovely friendly feel" Guest: Heather, May 2017
"Thank you and your superb organisation for recommending The Coop in Sotterley, Suffolk. We had a fantastic 2 weeks in the most delightful accommodation (it was beautiful). Also thank you for the essentials of bread, milk butter, marmalade etc and the lovely bag with extras." Guests Mr & Mrs Wilson, The Garden Coop, May 2017
