Searching for your perfect holiday cottage is easier with us. In fact it's a doddle. You can be as exact or as flexible as you like. You can be ultra precise – exact date, location, and features – or you can be the kind of happy-go-lucky holidaymaker who'll go anywhere at any time so long as you can take your dog and there's somewhere to store your bike.

Whatever you're looking for in your next holiday cottage getaway, you'll find it here – and you'll find it faster.

The holiday cottage search engine that’s built around you

You get more choice at Holiday Cottage Compare. We designed our holiday cottage database and search engine to reflect the way people pick their dream holidays.

That's why we're so much more flexible. When you search here, you're not constrained by where and when. If the only thing that counts for you is that you have a lake view and a double shower, those are the criteria you set. Your starting point is what you want, not what's available on a particular week in a particular place.

Total holiday freedom is totally free

There's no charge for all this freedom and flexibility. The price you pay for your holiday cottage is the price its owner or agent sets for it. It's the best price available, with no additional charges from us.

So let's start dreaming. Imagine what you want in your next holiday cottage, pop it into our search engine and see what comes up.

"Not even booked the cottage yet but if my customer service experience is anything to go by it should be fabulous. Paula was thoughtful, efficient and professional. Got back to me quickly with helpful and comprehensive information. We had a long list of specific needs and she was able to advise me brilliantly. I recommend." Esther Ellis
