First impressions count

It may be a cliché, but first impressions count for a great deal and there is nothing better than visitors arriving to find an unexpected little welcome gift upon arrival. 

For a small outlay property owners can ensure holidaymakers start their stay with a positive outlook.

When considering a welcome pack, make it a locally sourced one. There is a plenitude of local produce on offer such as Cornish Fairings biscuits, Rodda’s clotted cream, Boddington’s jam, The Cornish Cyder Farm’s Apple Juice, Callestick Farm Cornish Ice Cream, or some home-made bread or scones sourced from a nearby bakery.

A lot of the above suppliers are actually open to the public so as well as leaving out a small treat; owners could include leaflets about the local attractions.

So whatever way you choose to welcome your visitors, keep it local to boost business and promote the quality of the local produce in the area they’ve chosen to visit.
