Cooke & Arkwright is the largest firm of independent commercial property advisors in Wales. With a heritage going back over 100 years, we have been a major force in shaping the Welsh commercial and rural property world.

Cooke & Arkwright is the largest firm of commercial property advisors in Wales, but we are still small enough to be innovative and fleet of foot. Our scale and the scope of the business gives us unparalleled market intelligence and number of contacts and applicants. The Directors who own the firm all live in Wales and continue to provide clients with a personal service, and the whole team works to the highest standards of professionalism, honesty and integrity. We achieve this by employing and investing in talented individuals who are not only the best in their fields in Wales, but also genuinely proud of and passionate about their work, the problems they solve for their clients and what they contribute to society.

Based in South Wales with our head office in Cardiff and a hub office in London, we provide clients with advice on commercial, rural, retail and development properties in Cardiff, all parts of Wales and beyond. We are passionate about property in Wales and our focus is on using our expert and unrivalled access to market intelligence in Wales, giving our clients commercial advice to help them maximise the potential of their assets, whether they own, rent or develop. We are the local property experts in Wales.

Cardiff Waterside is a significant property holding for Aviva Investors at almost 500,000 sq ft. Our experiences show the benefit of working with a regional specialist where occupational markets can be unlocked with a good team with excellent local contacts. Ben Bolton and his team have done this for us for many years and been fundamental to our success and a very low void rate in Cardiff.
