What our owners say about The Best of Exmoor

David Ramsay

"We are delighted to have enlisted The Best of Exmoor to market our cottage. The fact that the company is small and extremely local to Exmoor was what attracted us initially. The very personal approach, flexibility, and above all effectiveness (four months completely booked so far from a standing start) has confirmed our feelings. 

Two well-known large west-country holiday cottage agencies were also keen to have our cottage on their books, but neither could come even close to matching The Best of Exmoor track record in their booking projections."

David and Nicky Ramsay

Anne and Mike

"We’re coming to the end of our 4th year in partnership with The Best of Exmoor and it’s been a tremendous success with full bookings within months of taking the plunge. We are particularly pleased by the demand during the ‘off’ season which is much to the credit of the thoughtful attention given to marketing and pricing which has led to the establishment of a loyal group of repeat visitors.

As it is our own home we were initially concerned about wear and tear but this has proved unfounded – our guests treat the place with as much respect as we do and we genuinely enjoy sharing it with them. We’re very happy to recommend The Best of Exmoor."
Anne and Michael Ridley

"We have been letting our property with Best of Exmoor since 2013, and it has been a great success from day one. We chose Chris and his team because they are local and they both know and love the area. 

Unlike national agents that we spoke to, Best of Exmoor don’t place restrictions on when we can stay in our own property, and don’t charge an annual fee - they only get paid if the cottage is let. They offer flexible booking arrangements, with our guests able to book with few restrictions placed on start dates or duration. We continue to be pleasantly surprised at the excellent occupancy rate through the year, and with less wear and tear than we had anticipated.
Best of Exmoor run a smooth and efficient operation - any queries are answered promptly - and they notify the housekeeper of bookings, which minimises the ‘hassle’ factor for us. Overall, choosing Best of Exmoor has been a great decision both for our business and for us personally, and we don't hesitate to recommend their services to other owners."

Peter and Jacqui Brasted

"I have found the association with Best Of Exmoor a great asset.
Not only have bookings increased to an almost full rate, but their help over the explanation of the workings of the system has been most appreciated. Everyone who has stayed here has been pleased with their
attention and has enjoyed the attractive website."
