Higher demand for self-catering holidays in Cornwall
When we think of Cornwall, we imagine tightly stuffed pasties and rich clotted cream… but food isn’t the only reason why Cornwall has over 5 million tourists a year. Having the longest coastline (433 miles) in all the English counties makes Cornwall the go-to place for that beach staycation. UK holidaymakers across the nation will travel the distance to Cornwall for long weekend – week breaks, as they know the beautiful landscape will be there waiting for them at the end of their journey.
According to a Google’s UK weekly travel metrics report, Cornwall is the most searched destination for those searching for a holiday let in the UK. Famous for its stunning sandy shores (which are found in more than a few top 10s) and Newquay for being a renowned destination that caters towards all audiences, holidaymakers can count on Cornwall to offer the holiday experience they want.
We’re the holiday lettings experts for premium properties in Cornwall
Blue Chip Holidays was established 16 years ago by founder Sylvia Cutting. When managing her first few properties in 2000, she saw the benefits that property owners could gain from the significant demand for premium self-catering holidays. The company’s portfolio continued to grow, recognising that luxury holiday lets in Cornwall were very popular among guests looking for that special break away.
We have years of holiday letting experience and local knowledge in Cornwall, which is why so many property owners continue to use us and trust us to holiday let their property. By being a Blue Chip owner, you’ll get treated in a Blue Chip manner and receive wonderful rewards, from our service to you throughout to what you earn by letting your holiday home with us. We’re proud to give each of our owners their own dedicated account manager – as we feel a ‘one size fits all’ approach isn’t suited when it comes to superb support and your premium property. Other benefits you can expect to receive as one of our owners include;
- Being a member of our Rewards club, offering exclusive discounts from local and national partners
- 24/7 access to our Owner Portal, where you can see your property’s performance online
- Guaranteed payment on every cancelled booking under our owner cancellation protection scheme.
- If your property is available at the last minute, you can have this as extra time in your holiday home and won’t be taken out of your owner allowance.
Our website is constantly monitored by our marketing team to see what our guests are looking for and how we can improve their booking journey. We’ve seen the largest amount of searches performed for Cornwall on bluechipholidays.co.uk – over 150,000 in the past year.

What our owners say about us…
‘I used Blue Chip Holidays for a corporate group… The range of apartments offered were excellent and left me with a very happy group. I bought a property there shortly afterwards and of course now list it with Blue Chip Holidays who have done a great job so far of keeping it full.’
David Rowland, 117 Mount Wise Newquay, Cornwall
‘In this increasingly competitive marketplace, being first in line for guests who care about quality and appreciate high standards is imperative. Blue Chip provide the perfect shop window for the type of customer we need to attract. They understand the market, and they support us every step of the way.’
Damian Sargent, Blacksand Ltd
