Jackson-Stops & Staff has surprised the industry by announcing its expansion into holiday lettings.
The agency’s Sherborne branch is expanding its residential sales business by amalgamating with Sherborne Cottages.
“The holiday lettings market goes hand in hand with our already well-established residential sales business as we often receive interest from buyers outside of the West Country who like to ‘test-drive’ the area” says Philip German-Ribon, director of Jackson-Stops & Staff’s Sherborne branch and owner of Sherborne Cottages.
“It is not only holiday-makers and potential buyers who will benefit. There are four Independent Boarding Schools and an International College in the area so, should parents wish to extend their stay, Sherborne Cottages is there to accommodate.”
The amalgamated firm is making an offer too - teachers, parents and guardians of pupils attending Sherborne School, Sherborne Girls, Sherborne International College, Sherborne Preparatory School and Leweston Girls School all qualify for a 10 per cent discount on holiday lets through Sherborne Cottages.
