TWO ENTREPRENEURS have teamed up to start a holiday lettings company, that they feel targets a niche in the market.

Friends Milly Parker, 31, from Hayle, and Martha Burnyeat, from Feock, near Truro, offer bespoke Cornish holidays through website www.millyandmartha.com

The pair met while Martha was holidaying in the area and launched the site last month, aiming to match holiday makers to their ideal property.

Milly said: "Having worked in Cornwall's leisure and tourism industry I realised that there was a niche in the market to create the opportunity of match-making holidays.

"So many people go home after a holiday dissatisfied with their accommodation that they don't return, we want to put a stop to that."

Milly and Martha have worked closely with local business and organisations to create the site, through which they will carry on interacting with customers from the moment they arrive to when they leave.

Martha added: "Cornwall has so many things to offer to so many different holiday makers and our aim is to ensure that when people come here they have the best time possible.

"We can't do anything about the weather but we can make sure that those that come to Cornwall make the most of everything the beautiful county has to offer."
