Introducing Dart Valley Cottages – the Newest Member of the Fresh Escapes Family
Following the retirement of Christine Clark, former owner of Dart Valley Cottages, we are incredibly excited to welcome Dart Valley Cottages, an established holiday cottage agency based in Dartmouth and the surrounding area, into the Fresh Escapes Family!
Dart Valley Cottages is a long-established family run business with over 30 years’ experience in the holiday industry working locally within the Dart Valley and the surrounding South Hams area of Devon. Another local, family business, Dart Valley Cottages work similarly to Fresh Escapes, offering a professional yet friendly service for our guests, and priding themselves on having a good working relationship with their owners, most of which have been with Dart Valley Cottages for many years.
An Even Stronger Team
As well as welcoming a fantastic portfolio of holiday homes in the South Hams area of South Devon to the portfolio, we’re incredibly lucky to have the two existing members from the Dart Valley Cottages team join us!
Nina and Mandy had previously worked with Christine to provide fantastic support to the homeowners and holidaymakers of Dart Valley Cottages, and we’re very fortunate that they have joined the Fresh Escapes team to continue this service. They join Fiona, James and Will in providing a personal, high quality service across our portfolio
Holiday Cottages in Dartmouth, Dittisham and The South Hams
As well as welcoming on board two new fantastic members to the Fresh Escapes Team, we’re delighted to now have a larger offering of holiday homes in Dartmouth and the South Hams area of South Devon.
Renowned for both its history and beauty alike, the South Hams area stretches from just beyond Totnes, through Dartmouth and Dittisham, past Stoke Fleming, down to Kingsbridge and over to Salcombe and beyond – a stretch of the South Devon coast that is a favourite destination for so many reasons. Dart Valley Cottages offers over 60 properties in this outstanding area, and we’re delighted that this collection now joins our own existing portfolio in Dartmouth, featured on the Dart Valley Cottages website.
Whether you’re a lover of history with its traditional buildings and strong links to the navy, you love being beside the water, or you want to explore a location that’s typically South Devon, we are sure that Dartmouth and the surrounding area will be a favourite top off on your South Devon adventure
What Does This Mean for me?
Bringing together two businesses often means change, difference, or that opportunities for homeowners and guests change. We’re determined that this will not be the case – if anything, we hope things will be even better for everyone involved!
For our guests, we’re delighted that we will now be able to offer a wider selection of holiday cottages in South Devon, securing Fresh Escapes as the local expert on holiday cottages in Devon. We’re proud of the area in which we live, work and spend our time, and by taking on the mantle of Dart Valley Cottages left by Christine, we hope that we’ll be able to share this love and passion for all things Devon with you, and with everyone at Dart Valley Cottages too.
For Fresh Escapes homeowners, it means a larger dedicated team are behind them, with the addition of Mandy and Nina, as well as now offering more visibility for us as a company across multiple platforms, including a well-established South Devon brand. We will also be learning from each other, especially in these initial months, to ensure that our offering is the best it can be.
And for homeowners of Dart Valley Cottages, we’ll be bringing new ideas, a new energy to the business, whilst retaining the tradition, brand and family-ethos that they enjoyed when working with Christine. In short – nothing will change, but we’ll work with you to make sure your needs and potential are always met. That’s our promise.
