The Original Cottages Family

All of our holiday properties are managed and let by local agencies, working within the Original Cottages aim to offer the best in the business to our holidaymakers and homeowners.

Across the group we offer high-quality self-catering accommodation, with most of our properties having a nationally recognised star-rating from VisitEngland or VisitWales. Customers can book anything from a two-night weekend break to a six-month extended let in the low season.

Some local agencies offer a full property management service to their cottage owners; everything from changing the beds each week to organising the annual boiler service is arranged by the agency on the owner’s behalf.

Another part of our business is in the longer-term residential letting market.  Property Management, based in ,  works with longer residential lets rather than short-term holiday lettings.

Original Cottages draws together the cottages from our family of over 30 local brands.

Experts in their area, their in-depth knowledge and on-the-ground availability is invaluable ensuring we can offer you the best cottage holidays around.
