The company, based at Badingham, near Framlingham, has grown rapidly since its launch in 2006 with just six cottages on its books.

It has also diversified beyond traditional cottages, with its portfolio of four- and five-star lets now also including glamping huts, chic apartments and country estates.

It is also building business beyond its Suffolk homeland, with a second brand, Best Escapes, having been launched to market properties outside the county, in areas including London, Kent and Cornwall.

Co-founder Naomi Tarry said: “We strongly believe it is our commitment to innovation and high standards that enables us to enjoy prolonged success in a challenging market.”

“We will continue to develop the Best of Suffolk brand, but our big plans for growth moving into 2013 lay within our sister brand Best Escapes. We have set our sights firmly on national expansion through Best Escapes and have marked this commitment with investment in a new website and re-branding.”
