Make money from your biggest asset

A new way to earn a little extra cash

Are you a property owner living in near the beach, in the country or close to the heart of a popular tourist city like York or Bath? Have thought about taking advantage of your biggest asset, your home, without having to sell it? Why not rent it to visitors over the peak summer season? Moving out of the family home can seem daunting, However the rental potential from the peak 6 – 8 week summer period could be just the financial boost you need to afford life’s little luxuries for the rest of the year.

My Favourite Cottages have developed a complete package for owners to simplify the process of renting their property during the peak summer period, from website design to booking management. In fact once you have your website sorted you could rent your house out at any time, go skiing for a few weeks and let the rent pay for your trip!

Large holiday letting agents can accommodate short term lets but this is usually on a very inflexible basis. Because we market your property through its own website, all of our packages are totally adaptable and can be tailor-made to suit your needs – because it’ll be your site and your terms!


As we know you are likely to be busy and have limited time to plan and manage your rentals, we specifically design our marketing and booking systems to work for time-strapped, budget-conscious owners.

Flexible short let packages include an independent 7-page website for the property, search engine optimisation work, and a year’s free listing on our holiday cottage portal site all from just £500.

For hesitant newby rental owners, My Favourite Cottages will also market your site, handle all holiday enquiries and bookings (and send you the money within 7 days of payment) for just 12% commission – most large holiday cottage agencies charge at least 20%.


Tips and advice are also part of our personal service. We are holiday property owners themselves and are full of helpful information. We’ll tell you if your property is likely to attract bookings and advise on prices. We’ll also give advice on anything from how to put together a welcome pack, to what to include in an inventory, necessary insurance, tax implications, necessary decorating and cleaning schedules.

With good quality three-bedroom properties in the right location attracting rentals in excess of £1,000 a week – it’s got to be worth considering.
