Our Story

In 2002 Andrea Sowerby left behind the corporate world of Sales and Marketing to set up a local holiday cottage agency in Burnham Market, as a sister company to her husband’s rapidly extending Sowerbys Estate Agency business. Having seen the demand for second homes and popularity of the area, she saw the opportunity to provide a personalised local management service to owners wishing to holiday let their much-loved second homes.

Starting with a handful of cottages, over the last 20 years our company has grown gradually with a portfolio now of almost 300 hand-picked cottages we would all like to stay in. Appreciating the need to be nearby in the event of any issues that need resolving, we have deliberately limited the range of our cottages to a relatively small localised area of outstanding natural beauty, within 20 minutes drive of Burnham Market. We pride ourselves on offering a personal, professional service to both our owners and our guests. Our owners can relax in the knowledge that we are looking after all aspects of their holiday homes; and our guests can relax knowing that we all live locally and have a genuine desire to help in the event of an emergency, or simply to offer local advice on what to do, where to eat etc.

Guest reviews

We have booked holiday cottages with Sowerbys several times and the properties are always of a very high standard. We enjoyed a very good week and hope to be in contact soon to make a booking for the autumn.

Nicola Hipwell - Allpoints Cottage

I would like to thank all of the staff at Sowerbys for their help and communication during the organising and (multiple) reorganising due to various lockdown restrictions. You were all great, I would recommend you unreservedly!  We had a wonderful holiday and will hopefully come back one day. Once again - thank you.

David Inger – 3 Links Court

Yet another fantastic holiday in this ideal property. All went smoothly as usual thanks to Sowerbys. A real home from home and we've been staying here about 9 times in the last 7 years and will keep coming back as we love it so much. Thank you!

Victoria Morgan - Little Tern

Very impressed by Sowerby service. Person who attended arrived promptly and fixed problems. Very efficient and service orientated company.

Brian Steer – Willow Lodge

Happy with great service from Sowerbys - Emails answered quickly. Loved the property. Thank you. Would book with you again.

Annette Hardy – Cherry House

We had a very enjoyable week in North Lodge thank you. We would use your company again as everything from the initial online booking has run smoothly - thank you!
