Press release: Bumper 2015 for Suffolk tourism

Press release: Suffolk holiday cottage agency predicts a bumper 2015 for Suffolk tourism

Suffolk holiday lettings agency Best of Suffolk says that Suffolk tourism businesses look set for a bumper year in 2015, after reporting an increase of 35% in advance bookings for holiday cottage accommodation next year, compared with advance bookings taken this time last year for 2014.

The agency, which can accommodate over 1,500 people in Suffolk every night, says that tourism ‘hot spots’ are seeing the largest growth in advance bookings.  These are on both sides of the county, including Aldeburgh and Southwold on the coast, and Bury St Edmunds and the historic ‘wool towns’ in the west of the county.

Best of Suffolk are busy preparing for the traditional New Year rush of new holiday bookings.  Once the Christmas turkey is eaten and presents unwrapped, people increasingly start to think about what holidays they want to enjoy in the coming year.

Naomi Tarry, co-founder of Best of Suffolk, said: “One of our key goals is to achieve the highest occupancy figures possible for our property owners, so this is very good news.  But it’s also good news for tourism-related businesses in Suffolk – higher occupancy rates means more visitors to our county’s wonderful independent restaurants, shops and tourist attractions.”

Alex Tarry, co-founder said: “In our ninth year of operation Best of Suffolk is growing faster than ever, we put this down to our sustained focus on consistently high standards and excellent customer service. As a brand we have always embraced innovation and technology and continue to do, as will become evident in the New Year.”
