Meet the Team
We know that when you go on holiday you like to know who you’re talking to so here is a bit about the team at The Emerald:
Tim – Owner
Tim previously owned his own business in the oil industry and at 50 decided to live out his lifelong dream of opening a set of luxury environmentally friendly self-catering accommodation in Cornwall. He got straight to work making that dream a reality and the Emerald was born.
Tim is a real eco warrior, looking to make a genuine difference in what he does. He is keen that The Emerald appeals to adults and children alike, since children are such a big part of his life (he and Brigitte have 8 children between them!) and has worked hard to create a secluded retreat, focusing on accessibility and privacy as primary design factors. He is now very proud to show guests around the luxury eco holiday retreat that has emerged from hid dream.
Brigitte – Owner
Brigitte was a teacher and has a lot of experience teaching special needs children. She’s a talented chef with a passion for creating delicious dishes and has recently completed a professional chef diploma. Alongside this she shares her husbands eco-friendly outlook and is in charge of making the Emerald visually attractive, as she also has a keen eye for interior design.
Beckie – PA
Beckie heads up the administration for the Emerald and will often be the person answering the phone or sending out the emails and working on the dreaded spreadsheets! She is bubbly, enthusiastic and friendly and is a great mum to her 3 children.
Pippin – Labradoodle
We accept dogs on in our Emerald properties and so Pippin is very involved in this part of the job! She is a 5 year old Labradoodle and prides herself on her friendly and calm nature. Most likely to be found sat by the pond, looking for someone to give her attention!
