Best of Suffolk, an award-winning holiday cottage business, has been sold to Sykes Holiday Cottages.

Sykes Holiday Cottages have more than 25 years of experience in the industry and more than 14,000 properties available as holiday lettings across the UK. Previously acquiring other businesses based in idyllic areas of the UK such as Devon, Cornwall, The Cotswolds and the Lake District, they now host more than a million holidaymakers every year. Best of Suffolk will run as a sister agency and their headquarters will remain in Suffolk.

Based in the village of Badingham, Best of Suffolk founders, husband and wife Alex and Naomi Tarry, started the business in 2006 after spotting a demand for unique self-catering holiday lettings in the county. The pair grew their business from six cottages to more than 400 in their 15 years at the helm but are now stepping back from Best of Suffolk.
