Choose A Cottage Holiday To Suit You, Your Family and Friends

If you’ve set your heart on a particular type of self catering holiday or location anywhere in the UK, use our search facilities to locate it. We’ll try not to offer you page upon page of ‘vague possibilities’ - just those that meet your criteria exactly. You’ll find lots of choices such as Remote Holiday Cottages, Farm Cottages, Festival Cottages (if you need accommodation near a festival), Child Friendly Cottages and many more choices.

When you select a cottage’s details, you won’t need to trawl through a lengthy page or pages of text and lists of inappropriate cottages.

My Favourite Holiday Cottages very easily allows you to:

  • Create a shortlist of holiday accommodation that matches your immediate criteria
  • Check out each property’s appearance – inside and out
  • Ensure it has the essential facilities you need
  • Contact the owner directly and check availability, prices etc.

Many cottage listings also display availability calendars, prices and visitor testimonials.

If you like the look of a cottage, you can phone, send an enquiry e-mail directly to the owner – or visit its website for further information.

Why Book A Holiday Cottage Direct With The Owner?

The majority of cottages listed here are independently owned and managed. There are many benefits from booking a UK holiday cottage through an owner rather than an agency. First of all - value for money - you’ll get more for your money, as you’re not paying a surcharge or booking fee applied by a holiday cottage agency for their services.

Secondly, owners who promote their own cottages tend to take great pride in their appearance, spending more time on them, keeping them up to date and looking after their guests. By booking directly with them, not only will they be able to answer your questions more accurately, the owner will also feel a greater sense of responsibility for their part in ensuring you enjoy a memorable holiday (and plan to return).

And finally, we work with all the owners of holiday cottages listed on this site. We give them the latest advice and information, encouraging them to improve the appeal and appearance of their holiday homes for the ultimate benefit of their guests - that’s you!

We also allow cottages managed by small localised agencies to be listed on this site. That’s mainly because, being local, they know the area and their cottages well. So, when you make an enquiry, you’ll still be speaking to someone able to answer your questions about a property or its location.
