Bloomsbury Estates was established in 2010 by Ray Cornwell as a property design and redevelopment company, specialising in bespoke design and cutting edge Architecture for both commercial and residential projects in London and France.  

In 2018 Ray’s son James started a subsidiary property management company under the Bloomsbury Estates umbrella. Since its launch, it has flourished and grown by over 300% in its first 12 months of operation. James was able to secure Funding in November 2018 which led to an expansion in the Team in 2019.

James’ background has been in real estate and private aviation, he came directly from what was a start-up Private Jet charter broker to one of the largest brokerage firms in the country. When the opportunity arose for him to work for himself, it was an opportunity to put his knowledge of rapid growth and sales into the family business.

Our portfolio consists of property in Bloomsbury, central London and the south of France.

The most important part of being a family run business, for us at Bloomsbury Estates, is freedom. We are not subject to investors scrutiny; we re-invest heavily into our booking platforms and high-tech channel management software that combined allows us to synchronise seamlessly with one central system allowing for exponential growth. We are emphatically customer service focused and have a constant 5star rating across all platforms.

We also offer a concierge service at no extra cost to ensure all customers enjoy their stay without any of the inconveniences that general travel may incur. We have quality tested every single one of our properties to ensure when a guest stays with us, they are always receiving a 5star experience.
