As the UK’s leading family-owned and truly independent holiday lettings agency, Original Cottages is proud to announce the launch of its first TV sponsorship campaign with Channel 5 and its Great British Stories series of programmes.

Providing fantastic holiday experiences with a unique local twist is at the heart of everything we do at Original Cottages.

Naturally, we’re thrilled to be aligned with Channel 5 and a package like Great British Stories that sits so closely with our core values.

Great British Stories will encompass both much-loved existing programmes on Channel 5, as well as exciting new offerings such as Our Great Yorkshire Life and Susan Calman’s Big Antique Hunt.

Channel 5 has an impressive breadth of content, with programming that celebrates all things Great British in abundance, including the boundless natural treasures, such as our National Parks, miles of rugged coastline and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

We’re certainly delighted to be able to deliver something truly original – will you be one of the millions watching?

We love creating our own original experiences every day, as well as helping other to do the same. Indeed, whether you’re looking for lazily-saunter-up-the-hill-to-a-pub Cottages or an epic-hikes-up-mountains-through-forest-and-scrub Cottages, fish-and-chip suppers-sat-on-the-pier Cottages, or three-hour-lunch-cottage-with-lashings-of beer Cottages, Original Cottages has the perfect property for you.

“Original means so many different things to so many different people. No two cottages are the same and neither are what people want from their break. It’s been incredible to bring this idea to life in our campaign, truly showcasing the extent of what Original can look like - and celebrating the sheer variety of everything that’s good about cottage breaks in the UK,”
“And Original for me, well, it normally looks a bit like the above photo,
