We like to build a rapport with our clients; we are always on hand to answer any questions or queries you have, no matter how insignificant you may think they are. That is what we are here for!

    A Tailored Service

    Outlined below are the two basic elements of our Service. However, we maintain a flexible attitude, and are generally able to adapt our Service to meet our client's individual circumstances and needs; for example by providing a part only Service, or occasionally by taking on additional tasks and duties.

    Letting Only

    Our Letting Only Services includes:

    • Marketing of the property

    • Carrying out viewings

    • Vetting of prospective Tenants, including reference and financial checks

    • Preparation of the tenancy agreement

    • Organising a property inventory*. The Tenant will then be checked in against the inventory.

    * We only arrange for an inventory to be compiled if you request one. This will incur an additional charge but we do recommend one be provided. See 'The Inventory' under section Other Considerations below.

    • Collecting the first month's rent and crediting to the Landlord less our agreed fee.

    Thereafter, managing the tenancy, including the maintenance and rent collections, will then be the responsibility of the Landlord.

    Full Management

    This is our inclusive Service, which covers all of the above plus:

    • Collecting/processing rental payments

    Rental payments are done on a monthly basis and will be credited automatically to the Landlord's nominated bank account.

    • Preparing / sending monthly fee statements

    • Periodic property inspections

    During the tenancy we carry out periodic inspection visits. Should these bring to light any maintenance issues, we will (within the confines of our Management Agreement) recommend, oversee and account for any necessary repairs.

    • Renew the tenancy agreement or arrange check out as applicable.

    Towards the end of the tenancy, we will liaise with the Tenant to advise them on your requirements.

    This Service is suitable for those Landlords who are not residing locally, or would rather not deal with the Tenants directly, preferring all aspects to be handled by an Agent.

    Insurance for Landlords

    We offer a range of competitively priced insurance products designed specifically for Landlords, providing extra security and peace of mind. These include:

    • Guaranteed Rental Insurance

    • Legal Expenses Cover

    • Contents Insurance

    • Buildings Insurance

Claire recently joined the team, having worked in the property and construction industry for approximately 15 years.

    We aren't so large that you just become a file reference number; when you call us you can be assured that the person who answers the phone will know who you are. We like to build a rapport with our clients and are always on hand to answer any questions or queries you have, no matter how insignificant you may think they are. That is what we are here for!

    Title

    • Paragraph

      Cherry Tree Estates is centrally based in the popular Chew Valley area which lies in the South West of England and falls into the territories of Bath and North East Somerset, North Somerset and Mendip councils. The area is sprinkled with lovely small towns, villages and hamlets; many of the local villages date back to the time of the Domesday Book and there is evidence of human occupation in the area since the Stone Age. Stanton Drew has the third largest collection of prehistoric standing stones in England, the three circles and three-stone 'cove' of Stanton Drew are surprisingly little-known.

      The bordering Mendip Hills are designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and offer a diverse habitat for flora and fauna and boasts the natural attractions of Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves.

      The largest village in the area is Chew Magna, voted 'Best Village in Britain' in 2011 in the Sunday Times and has a population of approximately 1,200. With its quaint raised Medieval pavements and historical buildings it traces its history back to Saxon times. It has excellent local amenities with a mini supermarket, local butchers, bank, two cash machines, pubs, pharmacy, dentist, opticians, post office, café and gift shops. It is a popular village for those who wish to live in a rural village community but still be within commutable distance of a city; Bristol is only 10 miles away with its mainline railway and links to the M4 and M5 motorway network. Bristol International Airport is also within easy reach for those quick get-aways. The historic Roman City of Bath, with its hot water springs and Georgian architecture; and medieval Wells, England's smallest City with its cathedral, and unique moated Bishop's Palace, are approximately 12 miles from Chew Magna.

      The Chew Valley and surrounding areas are well known for offering a wide variety of sporting and leisure activities and is a popular area for mountain biking; hiking/rambling; fishing; bird watching and sailing. Chew Valley Lake, an important site for wildlife and wild fowl, has been dedicated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a Special Protection Area. The Salt n Malt fish cafe, tearoom & takeaway at the picnic site, which is owned and run by Josh and Holly Eggleton of the Michelin stared local pub The Pony & Trap, is situated in an idyllic spot on the edge of Chew Valley Lake. Neighboring Blagdon Lake also offers fishing and has a Victorian pumping station and Visitor Centre which includes science and environment exhibits and hands-on displays. There are leisure and sport centers at Chew Stoke, Winford, Midsomer Norton and Farrington Gurney.

      For those who prefer something slightly less energetic the cities of Bristol and Bath offer an excellent selection of shops ranging from high street chains to more bespoke designer outlets for that little bit of retail therapy. If you are in the Roman City of Bath and fancy a different kind of therapy after a hard day's shopping then a trip to the Thermae Bath Spa is a must for a pamper session and cup of tea!

      The area boasts an excellent selection of public and private schools at both primary and secondary levels, as well as some excellent universities, such as Bristol, Bath and Bath Spa. The majority of the local villages in the area have their own primary schools and Chew Valley School, rated 'Good' for Years 7 - 10 and 'Outstanding' for their Sixth form by Ofstead is the very popular secondary school.

      The staff at Cherry Tree Estates are local residents and have lived in the area for many years so know the region and its hidden gems; from local farm shops and farmers markets to hair dressers and beauty salons, so don't be afraid to ask them questions as they are more than happy to assist you in your search for your dream home in an area you will love!

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      Professional, courteous and friendly
      Cherry Tree Estates was a relatively new agency in Chew Magna when we approached them to market three new individual properties in a converted Chapel. The sales were dealt with in a professional, courteous and friendly manner and it was a pleasure to give them the business. Mrs R Hargreaves.
    • Seller Testimonial

      cannot recommend them highly enough
      I asked Cherry Tree Estates to sell my house for me as I wished to downsize following my husbands death. They dealt with the matter is an extremely professional and caring way for which I am extremely grateful and I cannot recommend them highly enough. The details were accurate and very well presented. The property was frequently advertised and all viewings were accompanied by Lisa Smith the Manager. It was not a straightforward sale but I found the staff very helpful in dealing with the situations as they arose. I would certainly recommend Cherry Tree Estates to any prospective seller.  Jackie, Chew Stoke 

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Extremely personable
      'As well as being a house purchaser I work as a financial adviser and a large part of my work is involved with arranging mortgages, and so I have come into contact with a lot of estate agents over the years. Cherry Tree Estates are a rare beast in that they are extremely personable as well as being professional. In the negotiation to buy our house they were quick to act and bought the negotiations to a speedy conclusion. As a small locally based agency they did a very good job in not just selling us a house but also gave us background information into the local area, as we did not know it at all, this helped us make an informed choice on the location too. They were very quick to respond to any queries we had once our offer had been accepted, and this helped speed up the legal process as well. I would certainly recommend them to anyone buying a property because of the above and if we do come to sell our place in the future they will be our first and only choice.' Mr J Monk
    • Buyer Testimonial
