North Devon Tourism Business Award

Marsdens Devon Cottages beat off strong competition to win the Best Tourism/Hospitality Business Award in last year's North Devon Journal Business Award ceremony, with one of the judging panel saying we do not just wait for tourists to arrive, but attract them by creatively and actively marketing the area as a must-see destination.

We work hard to promote all our cottages with the help of our PR teams and by using various advertising promotions, direct mail initiatives, email newsletters and attention-grabbing media campaigns. Our fully interactive website attracts thousands of visitors each week and we also have a number of other websites - both here in the UK and abroad - which promote the cottages in a variety of ways.

But our success is based on the simple premise that we offer great service and unrivalled experience to both owners and holidaymakers. We believe there is no substitute for knowledge and experience and there's no reason why a professional service can't be personal too. We value our staff whose knowledge of the area, properties and experience in the holiday cottage market, make us unique in the South West.
