Our Story

As a long standing owner on The Bay and frustrated by quality alternatives to the mass market agents, we wanted to provide a high quality, high value holiday experience for guests and for owners alike.

Anchor Bay Holidays is the largest and fastest growing independent owner led agent on The Bay offering holidays to thousands of guests per year many of who come back several times per year.

We now have around 50 properties (representing well over 10% of the village properties) in all locations across the village. All properties have been picked by us so we ensure you have a great holiday and we have something for everyone’s family and budget.

We set minimum standards (including decorating, inventory and equipment) for our properties checking them at least every month and auditing them against a 50 point check list to ensure the property is up standard so you have a hassle free holiday!

As owners on They Bay since 2013, we know what makes a great holiday. We know the village and the local area extremely well, have links to local restaurants and attractions and above everything, we pride ourselves on our customer service, communication and property standards.

We have an exceptional housekeeping team and local agents on hand and you are provided with 24/7 contact details for if you encounter any problems during your stay. We have access to local tradesmen and woman as well as plumbers and electricians should the unexpected happen. We are onsite regularly and we love meeting guests and would love you to stop us and say hello!

When not booking holidays for people Anthony likes to undertake all kind of repairs for “Leeds Repair Cafe“, whilst Kirstie is a full time “Dance Mum”!
