What are Agency Managed Holiday Cottages?
Scroll down to view our collection of Agency-managed holiday cottages. Agency Cottages in the UK are holiday cottages where the owner has contacted an independent business to manage their property. You then contract with the business when booking the cottage. Some holiday cottage agencies just look after marketing and bookings, while others go the whole hog, covering all cleaning, housekeeping and maintenance chores. They tend to work on a commission basis where the owner pays them a percentage of the rental fee.
