Brooke and Gemma met at University, both reading Psychology and both with a genuine interest in ‘what makes people tick’. Whilst Brooke had originally thought about clinical psychology and Gemma, forensic psychology they both realised their shared attention to detail and appetite for a challenge could be met closer to home in beautiful Devon. Over lots of coffee and cake, this shared passion developed into a business idea about providing a space that understood people’s individuality and interests and aimed to encourage people to take time out of their busy schedules and experience their own little bit of luxury! They wanted to give people the chance to escape.
Devon is such an amazingly varied county from rugged coastlines and golden sandy beaches to fishing villages and Moors which means walking, surfing, sailing, swimming; sun bathing, alfresco dining and barbeques on the beach whilst the sun is setting and Brooke and Gemma wanted to share this. Being busy working mums, they both understood how precious time off is so wanted to create a holiday company that provided properties that are carefully chosen for their perfect location and luxury interiors… and so Your Luxury Escape was formed.
Today, Your Luxury Escape has grown into a fully established holiday letting and property management company, working closely with owners and holiday letting agents from all over the UK to deliver beautiful and comfortable homes that allow guests feel the stress melt away from the moment they arrive. Whether you’re travelling alone, as a couple, as part of a group of with your family, Brooke and Gemma want your holiday to be truly unforgettable, creating memories that will last a lifetime. Whether your perfect holiday is action packed or a quiet retreat, their local knowledge and local connections means they can sprinkle that little bit of magic that makes holidays so special. Their job is to optimise your holiday experience; your job is to just enjoy it.
