Our friendly team (plus the ‘office cat’, Mittens) spans a range of skills and expertise, with a shared passion for Cornwall.
In-house sales, marketing, accounts and property experts take care of everything for our owners and guests, while we benefit from strong local partnerships. We believe that it’s our local knowledge and innovative sense of vision that really makes us stand out.
A passionate advocate of Cornwall, Jill Landeryou grew up here and returned with the aim of showcasing the very best the area has to offer in coastal holiday homes, combined with exceptional customer service. From humble beginnings as a cottage start-up business, Latitude50 has grown into a well-respected brand known for its excellent range of coastal holiday houses. Today, we proudly represent some of the loveliest flagship properties within the industry. Jill lives in Rock with fellow Partner Richard Benton, daughter Eve, and Mittens, their cat (and a popular character in the Latitude50 office).
Sales & Marketing
Sales & Marketing Manager Katy Austin-Waters joined Latitude50 in 2015. With a wealth of academic and professional experience, including a diploma from the Chartered Institute of Marketing and past employment for Bath Tourism, Katy’s been working to expand our already extensive reach. Her focus on results (and a natural flair for beautiful presentation) means she’s upping our marketing and sales to achieve the best possible results for our owners. Katy also has the fun job of visiting gorgeous properties around North Cornwall to consider them for inclusion within the Latitude50 portfolio and is the first point of contact for potential new owners.
Our Property Advisor Laura is the friendly voice on the end of the phone, here to help you plan your perfect escape to North Cornwall. She's a natural holiday matchmaker, with a talent for finding guests their ideal property from our portfolio. Laura brings a wealth of experience from the hospitality industry both here in Cornwall and on the other side of the world. Born and raised in North Cornwall, you can rely on Laura's local knowledge to get the very best from your holiday with Latitude50. Laura can be found working alongside Katy in the Sales & Marketing department on a whole range of promotional activities.
The property management team is responsible for making sure every aspect of your property experience runs smoothly, from overseeing changeovers to stress-free troubleshooting.
Bringing a wealth of experience from the high end travel industry is James Baker, our dedicated Property Manager. Having worked on super yachts and for luxury holiday provider Powder Bryne International, James has impeccable standards and a real eye for detail. With previous property management experience and involvement in renovation projects, James brings a valuable combination of practical skills and business acumen to Latitude50. Along with a network of trusted service providers, James ensures that, whatever the eventuality; we have someone to call on, day or night.
Our AAT-qualified in-house Accountant Rose will handle all the company finances, ably assisted by her assistant, Scarlet. While they’re experts with numbers, they also act as a friendly contact point for any questions you might have.
Jo joined the team in 2015 and her natural flair for administration and all things 'organised' helps all departments run smoothly. Jo ensures all the paperwork is in order for our guests’ holidays, all done with typically Cornish cheer. Brought up on a farm in southeast Cornwall and now settled just outside Rock, she’s a lifelong local. Her detailed knowledge of the Latitude50 properties means she's always on hand to take bookings and help guests with any queries.
Mittens joined the team last year. She was rescued from a local farm as a very tiny kitten. She is now a valued member of the team and can be very helpful when it comes to collecting up stationery in weird and wonderful places!
