Tracy spent most of her career working in marketing agencies in London, Leeds and Manchester where she worked with brands like Best Western, ITC Classics, Sandals, Eurocamp and Centreparcs.

She joined the senior leadership team at the Pure Cottages Group, as Sales and Marketing Director in 2018, which is where she met Tom.

Tom Burdett
Owner Director

Tom is Cotswolds born and bred and his entire career has been in property. For 14 years he worked in estate agency, progressing through one of the region’s leading independent firms. Following an approach from the Pure Cottages Group, Tom made the move into Holiday Letting and became Managing Director of Character Cottages until its sale to a larger corporate entity. In 2021 he joined the board of StayCotswold, with the ambition of evolving the well-established and much-loved brand into the leading independent holiday letting agent in the Cotswolds.

When not working he can be found at a number of golf courses in the Cotswolds.

Heather May
Customer Service

Heather fell in love with the Cotswolds on a recent holiday and has since relocated with her bicycle. She spends weekends exploring charming villages, pubs and cake shops, on two wheels. Following a 5-year career in both London and San Diego, arranging luxury global travel for Scott Dunn, she now enjoys sharing all the Cotswolds has to offer with our guests.

Heather’s focus is to anticipate customer requirements whilst making it as easy and enjoyable as possible for owners and guests alike, to do business with StayCotswold. She thrives on providing high levels of customer service.

Fergus Mitchell
Owner Director

Originally involved in digital publishing, event management, and property investment in London, Fergus and his family moved to the Cotswolds in 2000. He immediately spotted an opportunity to set up a property company focusing on high quality holiday lets and short lets…..StayCotswold was born!

The founding principle of customer service continues today and Fergus is now dedicated to building StayCotswold into the leading holiday let brand in the region.

Fergus is also Chairman of the Cotswold Cider Company, and has an interest in the Barkby Pub Group which has a number of fine inns around the Cotswolds.
