the cornish way......

“We wanted a more personal approach to managing and marketing our holiday home. With Seb’s wealth of experience he doesn’t disappoint with his unstinting customer service and expert advice. He pays attention to the needs of your guests and you alike. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend The Cornish Way to anyone thinking of renting out their house to guests. - Chris and Miranda, Manor Farm”

We'd love to welcome you to our family.


From a woodcutter's cabin to a sumptuous family house overlooking the Atlantic we manage a bespoke collection of gorgeous cottages that are the pride and joy of their owners, and that are considered a home from home by their lucky guests.


We are small by design and believe that we can only have an intimate knowledge of a manageable number of cottages, and that is key is serving you, and your guests, beyond expectation. We are discerning over the properties we work with and our ethos is simple. We have to love the cottages we look after, and they need to be within easy reach, so we can oversee them effectively and be on hand for our owners and guests. We look after every cottage as if it was our own and have stayed in the majority ourselves. By focusing on a small portfolio of luxury holiday homes in West Cornwall, the area we know intimately, we can maintain a highly personalised level of service that would be near impossible for a larger agency.



We understand that most property owners want to use their holiday home unhindered too. Flexibility is key. It is also key in our tailored approach. No owner’s needs are the same and no cottage we look after the same. We are most definitely not one size fits all, our terms are simple, our commission competitive and many of our owners we now count as friends. We also never forget that you are our client and we always aim to go that extra mile.


This attitude extends to your guests from the moment they enquire and continues to when they get home after a great holiday and are considering booking again. We provide a professional, approachable and personalised service so whether your visitors are lost on a stormy night and need us to come out and lead them to their cottage (yes, we have done it many times!), want their shopping delivery put away before arrival or a surf lesson booked we will make it happen. This has resulted in a loyal following of repeat guests who value being more than just a number and helps many of our established cottages let for the majority of the year.


The Cornish Way is based in St Just and run by Seb Blakemore who has three decades experience in the property and holiday letting industries and delivers an enthusiastic, professional and experienced approach. Whether you’re taking the first tentative steps towards owning a holiday home and want some straightforward, honest advice, or are already an owner looking for a different attitude from your agent do get in touch.
