What you see is what you get – a straightforward, intelligent pricing structure that responds to customer demand and seasonal adjustments.
Put simply, we apply a mutually agreed commission on bookings only. No bookings mean no commission and this helps to account for our very successful occupancy rates, maximises booking income and pays you by results.
With a guarantee of no hidden extra charges or sign-up costs, our full marketing package is included in our commission fee.
Owning a holiday property is a smart move and we’ll work closely with you from the outset to help you earn the best possible income.

Showcasing Your Property
Knowing where and when to advertise your holiday home can be time-consuming and a bit daunting. That’s where we can really help give your property added visibility.
Every cottage is beautifully presented online with detailed descriptions that make the most of its best features and trigger all the main search engines to keep us at the top of the rankings.
We know our guests love the latest information, so every new property gets specially featured online and also added to our lovely brochure.
With over 7.5 million annual website visitors, active on all main social media channels and strongly investing in targeted advertising, we provide promotional coverage second to none.
For more information call our property team on 01835 822277 or contact us online.
Bookings and payments are managed efficiently, safely and securely. A refundable householder deposit is taken on every booking to protect against the cost of any potential damage.
For extra peace of mind, we provide cancellation cover on every booking which guarantees you will be paid even if the booking falls through.
For owners with their own websites, we provide the technology to link your site with ours. This lets guests view live availability and pricing, then transfer over to book and pay securely.
To help you enjoy personal use, we provide the convenience of being able to block off any period you wish to use your property yourself.

How It All Works
We’ll provide you with a free, no obligation rental and income projection for your cottage or the property you have in mind and when you are ready, will arrange a visit to guide you through the process in full. Before you know it, the bookings will start flowing in.
We notify you of each booking as they come in, update your web calendar then send a reminder to you the week before your guests arrive.
All transactions are made on a regular monthly basis with deposits paid at the end of the month in which they are received, and balances paid at the end of the month in which the holiday is taken.
Considering purchasing an established holiday home? This can be a great option as a lot of the work will have already been done for you - browse our range of cottages for sale that are already established as holiday lets.
Our property inspections are meticulous and cover every aspect of your letting to ensure the highest possible standards for your guests.
We’ll give you tips on how to make improvements, how to dress your property to impress and how make your guests feel truly indulged.
Safety is a primary concern. We constantly monitor the regulatory environment and will keep you informed of any changes that may affect your property. Our advice covers everything from smoke alarms and fire blankets to the provision of leisure equipment and hot tubs.
Doing it right means guest satisfaction. We are pleased to be recognised by independent ratings provider Feefo as a Gold Trusted Merchant and by our loyal customers, many of whom have been holidaying with us for over 20 years.
