A luxury holiday lettings agency has proved that, in spite of adverse weather conditions, people are still booking holidays in Cornwall.

Though Cornwall has seen the fifth wettest January since records began, bookings for Cornish Gems luxury lettings agency have proved to be excellent – securing record results.

Bookings taken in January 2014 were over double that of last year, showing visitors are still eager to holiday in the county whatever the weather.

Tamsin Huddy, General Manager of Cornish Gems, commented:

"With Cornwall hitting the headlines due the storms over the last couple of months, we are very keen to spread the news that we, as well as the whole of the South West, are still open for business."

Across social media sites, a campaign has been promoting the South West with businesses interacting with #OpenForBusiness on social media platforms, ensuring that the message gets out that Cornwall is not cut off, and has never been closed, despite damage to train lines – with Prime Minister David Cameron visiting the county to help raise the profile.

Tamsin continued:

"Despite the concerns that the storms may deter people from enjoying a holiday in the county, our stats are proving that bookings are still coming in, but we must ensure this momentum is maintained".

Last month, Cornish Gems had already filled over 60% of properties for May half term and 50% for some July and August weeks.

Nadia Durrant, Managing Co-Director of Cornish Gems, is thrilled that Cornish Gems is continuing to secure excellent results, saying:

"Our holiday makers have always enjoyed Cornwall as there is so much to do whatever the weather.  It is clear from our results that our customers are not being intimidated.  I believe that our consistently high standard of well equipped holiday accommodation and our beautiful county will never cease to draw visitors"
