Earby letting boss first up on new ITV1 weekend series
A BOSS from Earby-based holiday lets provider cottages- 4you will be starring in an ITV1 show tomorrow.
Bill Brown, regional manager for the firm, which is part of the The Hoseasons Group, will be appearing on the programme Holiday Home Sweet Home.
The Saturday afternoon show gives viewers a sneak peek into self-catering holiday properties in Devon.
Mr Brown, who has been with the firm for just over six years, said he was pleased to be able to show off some of Devon’s finest locations.
“I was delighted to be involved and introduce the crew to some of my favourite natural beauty spots like Woolacombe beach and parts of Exmoor, where some of our properties are based,” he said.
Cottages4you was voted the best UK Cottage/Self Catering Booking Company at the 2011 British Travel Awards and has a portfolio of more than 27,000 properties.
The new series, presented by former Masterchef winner Lisa Faulkner, visits holiday homes around the UK.
It looks at a wide range of homes from aspirational beach front villas to idyllic rural cottages. Lisa also visits some more quirky properties from historic forts to gypsy caravans and glamorous camping to stately manor houses.
The show also focuses on the people who run and own the holiday homes, uncovering a unique insight into the work that goes into running a holiday let, and the holidaymakers themselves as they enjoy their summer break.
The write-up for the show, which is broadcast from 1.10pm, reads: “Bill Brown, regional manager for one of the UK's largest holiday home agencies, catches up with property owners in some stunning parts of the country.”
