Our friendly team (plus the ‘office dog’, Luna) 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.

Today, we proudly represent some of the loveliest flagship properties within the industry. Jill lives in Rock with fellow Partner Richard Benton and daughter Eve.
