Meet the people behind Harbour Holidays

From strolling through summer’s harbourside bustle to braving coastal walks in winter’s winds, our team lives and breathes Padstow.

Whether it’s finding the right property to fit for your holiday plans, letting you in on some insider knowhow or simply sharing some seagull avoidance tactics, we’re here to help you make more of your holiday.


Watching her company grow

“I grew Harbour Holidays out of my estate agents business, many years ago. Over time the company has gone from strength to strength, and seeing my daughter take over the reins and lead it into the next chapter is wonderful. Still managing the estate agents, I’m just next door for sharing insights, cups of tea and lunchtime strolls along the harbour. From the very beginning, the drive for me has been hearing people say, “Thank you, I’ve had a brilliant holiday”. That’s why we’re all here.”


Leading the way with an infectious enthusiasm

“Swinging by the Crab Tree café for my morning coffee and breathing in the sea air by the harbour. There’s no better way to start a day filled with taking on new properties, developing marketing materials, helping owners with furnishing quandaries and managing all the company’s comings and goings. My favourite part of it all is putting my eye for design to work to good use, helping owners spruce up their properties and seeing the difference it makes.”


Cornwall was a very special place for myself and my family whilst I was growing up. Spending our holidays down here every year, fond memories of building sandcastles, playing in the rock pools, and going for ice creams with my grandparents. Now living down here, I love that I can help other families create their own fond memories of holidaying in this beautiful location.
Being the Manager of Harbour Holidays, I am always on hand to speak with guests and the owners of our properties. The favourite part of my job is to visit new properties and working with the owners to create a beautiful holiday home for our guests. From the first correspondence through to completing the webpage and taking that exciting first booking.
I have a great team behind me and feel honoured to work for such a local and loyal company.


Making your holiday happen

“Helping guests find the best property to live out their holiday, managing the booking process and handling any issues. Being a lettings agent at Harbour Holidays for the last five years has certainly kept me on my toes! I love finding opportunities to make people’s holidays that bit better, and listening to their tales of soaking up all that Padstow has to offer. If there’s one thing to do while you’re here, it’s taking in the view from Chapel Stile.”


Bringing you the inside scoop

“I take bookings, manage website updates and take to social media to share our insider’s eye on Padstow – as well as keep our guests and owners up to date on all things Harbour Holidays. I’ve been here for several years now, but I’ll never tire of the view from the office door (it changes every day), or hearing people’s holiday stories.


Sharing amazing experiences

"I have been visiting Cornwall for as long as I can remember as my family owned a holiday home in Newquay. I absolutely love everything Cornwall has to offer - from exploring the beautiful coastline to sampling the endless food and drink venues. What I love most about working at Harbour Holidays is that it allows me to share my amazing experiences and passion for Cornwall as a destination with others. I love working in the heart of Padstow, surrounded by everything Cornwall! For me, nothing makes me happier than knowing we have contributed towards the creation of a fantastic holiday."


I love Cornwall especially Padstow where I holidayed for twenty years before taking the plunge and moving here from Wales in 2016.
I found the ideal job in Harbour Holidays as it allows me to meet people from all walks of life. I love seeing Padstow full of holiday makers enjoying themselves from the kids crabbing at the side of the harbour to our four legged friends enjoying their runs on the beach.
I am extremely lucky to live and work in such a beautiful place!
