Holiday cottages in the UK and beyond: your self-catering cottage directory

About Us


Many holiday cottage enthusiasts will know that our website emerged in 1996 from our annual publication, The Good Holiday Cottage Guide. This was first published in 1983.

The book was based entirely on first hand visits to the properties featured, and as indicated on many of the individual write-ups here we can vouch for many of them personally: we’re still happy to receive calls about them (01438 869489).

Also, the main co-ordinator of the website used to work for Visit Britain, and welcomes calls on the above number about property locations, proximity to popular attractions, and more. Our regional features may also be of use.

As well as a database-driven search option, we have an overview of properties in individual counties and regions – a chance to browse.
