Time out for the team!

Friday saw employees of Marsdens Devon Cottages join the company owners for a get-together in beautiful Croyde. We are a family business and the owners, Richard and Lesley Ellis, enjoy spending time with the Marsdens Cottage Holidays team from Devon and Cornwall and other teams in our sister brands around the country.  Taking a leaf out of Julie Andrew’s book – the meeting started at the very beginning – a very good place to start! We learnt how the business began, considered the values the company has been built on, and we discussed current progress.  We were asked to suggest how we can continually improve our service to cottage owners and our guests.  Richard and Lesley are always ready to listen to input and ideas from the team which is not only good for morale but makes for a great team environment.  As always it was really nice to catch up with them and we appreciated their time and effort in arranging the get together – as well as the delicious lunch!

The short drive from our office in Braunton to the venue included stunning views of Saunton Beach at high tide.
