New Brand Image & Vision

This week sees the announcement of the rebrand of H&H Land and Property to H&H Land & Estates which incorporates three of the foremost rural land and property agencies in Cumbria – Michael CL Hodgson, H&H King and recently acquired Smeatons.

This is the new identity for one of H&H Group PLC’s key companies, compromising 9 offices, 65 employees and dozens of services for property and landowners across the North of England and Scottish Borders.

The role and face of the land agents continues to change and evolve and over recent years the firm has steadily grown, and H&H Land & Estates now has departments covering agricultural services, development and planning, auctioneering, land, farms, rural and residential sales and lettings. This has resulted in the business identifying the need to have a multi-faceted offering across the wide geographical area in which they operate, and to provide a hub for clients and customers to have access to its full range of professional expertise.

Managing Director, Colin Tomlinson explains the decision to rebrand and the vision for the future:  “After consultation we have chosen a name which embraces all areas of the businesses – H&H Land & Estates – to unify all areas under one brand with a strong identity.  Choosing to rebrand is never a decision made lightly but in doing so we are responding to the increasing complexity of the land and property sector, the changing face of land agency work, and the increasing diversity of customer requirements. In looking at our vision we are acknowledging our roots, the needs of clients, the changing marketplace and the demands of the industry.”

“A farming or rural business may wish to develop environmental schemes, may need advice on farm diversification, or succession planning. It may be considering grant applications, renewable opportunities or utility claims. An owner may have land to let, may be looking for a tenant, or may have a cottage to let. The list is long and never has it been more important that as rural agents we ensure that we provide the appropriate platform of support.”

H&H Land & Estate’s new consolidated business divisions across Cumbria, the north east of England and Scottish Borders can provide all these encompassing services.

With decades of expertise and specialism in each department, the teams really do understand the challenges farmers, landowners and rural businesses face on a day-to-day basis. So, whichever office clients visit, they will have access to a complete portfolio of professional land agency services such as sales, lettings, planning, development, valuations, estate and land management. The H&H Land & Estate’s head office and base for the forestry, development, environmental and planning departments remain at, Borderway, Carlisle.

  • Over the past few months, I’ve been dealing with Jenna to sort out some issues with a tenant that left and to find a new tenant for my property. You’ve been the managing agent for my flat since 2005 and the service that Jenna has given me recently has been nothing short of superb. She has promptly answered questions, given me reassurance and generally been a godsend over a fairly stressful time. You have a tremendous asset in Jenna.

  • From my first dealings with the valuer who came out to look at my property and telephone dealings with the staff in the office, I have had nothing but excellent service and I would like to thank them all for that. My biggest thanks must go to Gillian, who has helped me all the way from start to finish, she has gone beyond my expectations and helped me in every way possible, her enthusiasm and humour along with her professional service has made my experience of selling my property a very pleasant experience and for that I am very grateful.

  • Nothing but praise for the service offered by Andrew and Kathy at H&H King, Penrith. They really put themselves out, not only to ensure that we sold our house but also to find us a house that suited our requirements in the right area. We have no doubts that they are worthy of a 5* rating. N&T

  • Thank you so much [Mike] for all your help with the Mid-Tier Application. I couldn't have possibly done it myself and it was such a relief to be able to hand it over to you.

  • We are very pleased with the way you dealt with the Scroggs Wood programme. There seemed to be a number of difficulties, but you overcame all these problems and got the timber extracted in good time, and sold it well - we were delighted with the cheques we received. So we wish to thank you warmly for all your efforts, your expertise and your thoroughly professional approach.
