An Introduction to Jean Bartlett Cottage Holidays

Jean Bartlett Cottage Holidays is an independent, family owned company, based in Beer on the World Heritage Coast. We have been successfully letting quality holiday homes in the East Devon area for over 25 years and have a portfolio of approximately 60 properties, the majority being within a 20 mile radius of our offices.

We employ a small team of staff who are not only experienced in the holiday and tourist industry but also live locally and have a good knowledge of each area. Our staff know our portfolio of properties inside out and as a result they are able to talk to potential holidaymakers with confidence and first hand knowledge. The personalised service we provide is key to achieving high levels of guest satisfaction and repeat bookings.

Where properties are situated close to our offices we are also able to provide a full management service to those owners who require it; we have our own handyman who will deal with minor maintenance issues and a support team of reliable local tradesmen, all of whom are known to us. For those properties located further afield, again we can provide a management service based on teams of reliable local tradesmen and caretakers.

Jean Bartlett Cottage Holidays is one of a family of local brands owned by The Original Cottage Company; a business established in 1992 by Richard and Lesley Ellis.

From offices in Reepham, Norfolk The Original Cottage Company runs a national brand, Originalcottages.co.uk and provides a variety of specialist services for the whole family of brands.
Being ‘part of the family’ gives us quite a unique offering.  The talents, know-how and local knowledge of our East Devon-based team are complemented by specialist skills, industry knowledge and marketing opportunities on a National level. The benefits include:

  • A sales support line open from 8am until 8pm Monday to Saturday and 10am until 6pm on Sundays.
  • Specialist online marketing, including pay per click, search engine optimisation, affiliate marketing, website development and customer relationship management.
  • IT development. (Our entire business is built on our own sophisticated software system)
