If you've ever felt like you needed help finding a holiday cottage, our personal shopper service is the solution to a stress-free booking next time you're planning a break.

With our holiday cottage concierge service, you just fill in a short form to let us know the property or location characteristics you are looking for - and with over eleven thousand cottages to choose from throughout the UK, we can cater for a huge range of specific needs.

Looking for a hand finding a holiday cottage?

Maybe you don't need anything really unusual, but just feel like you would prefer to have some assistance booking a holiday cottage? That's fine too - your enquiry can be as basic as the number of bedrooms you want, or which week you would like to go away for.

Alternatively, if you have specific needs that are not always catered for, such as a walk in shower or wet room for a guest with impaired mobility, a converted boathouse or holiday cottage accommodation to sleep 47, you can let us know that too.

Help finding the perfect cottage for pet owners and families with young children

For pet owners, finding a holiday cottage isn’t always as easy as searching for ‘pet friendly’ properties. You might have more than one dog (we cater for holiday makers with up to 5 dogs) or they might be skilled at escaping properties, so a holiday cottage with an enclosed garden is a must.

Similarly, busy mums looking for somewhere over the summer always hugely appreciate our ability to search for cottages available over the school summer holidays – saving them hours otherwise having to search holiday cottage websites week by week.

And those families with young children know only too well how much of a difference the little touches make. So let us know if you need a stairgate. An indoor pool. Enclosed garden. Or play area. As well as the essentials like a washing machine, tumble drier and dishwasher.

Short on time? Need help finding a large holiday cottage?

Perhaps you are short on time and just want a hand finding somewhere that’s at the very least a home from home – and ideally something more. A hot tub? Heated swimming pool? Or games room?

Or maybe you’ve been tasked with finding a large holiday cottage for a special occasion? A hen party weekend away for 15 people. Or a large holiday cottage for 20 to celebrate a Golden Wedding anniversary. Whatever you are looking for, drop us a line - we would love to help.

How to use our holiday cottage personal shopper service

First, fill in our personal shopper enquiry form at https://www.holidaycottagecompare.com/help-find-my-holiday-cottage/enquiry

Like our website search function, the enquiry form asks for certain details such as where you want to visit and when you want to stay there, but you can leave these blank if it’s not more important to you.

You can tell us the number of adults, children and babies, a total budget if you've got a set amount to spend, and any other features and amenities you want the property to have.

Remember that if you don't know the answer to any question or it's not a priority to you, you can leave it blank - you don't have to make up any extra information just to fill in the boxes.

What our holiday cottage concierge service gives you

We take into account everything you ask for, whether it's a search area of a single village, several counties, areas of interest (like the Lake District National Park), a country or the whole of the UK.

Maybe you don’t mind where you go as long as it’s within 2 hours of your own location? Or 100 miles?

You can also let us know whether you want to travel on certain set dates, anytime in the summer season, or whenever the perfect property is available. And if budget is an important factor, we can limit our search to perfectly suit your requirements.

Our personal shopper service is unique in the level of assistance booking a holiday cottage that we are able to offer - we really do not believe anyone else provides a concierge service with this much detail.

We will find you a holiday cottage within 24 hours of your enquiry

Within 24 hours of receiving your enquiry, we will get back to you with a shortlist of holiday cottages that we believe are the best fit for what you require.

For extremely specific searches, we will always do our utmost to find a perfect match for your needs - but the added bonus of a personal shopper service is that we can also suggest alternatives that we think would still give you what you are looking for, but which you might otherwise miss.

What happens next?

We don't just offer help finding a holiday cottage - we offer assistance booking a holiday cottage too, so once you find the one you want on our shortlist, just let us know and we can help answer any questions you might have about the property.

It's as stress-free as possible, and when we receive your enquiry, we work fast to make sure you don't miss out on any of the best holiday cottages for a break with specific needs.

All our properties offer real time availability and pricing. That means you know straight away if they’re free on the dates you and exactly how much you’ll pay. You can then book your perfect cottage straight away, using our safe and secure booking process.

You can always find our holiday cottage concierge service via our Contact Us page - which is also the place to be for all general enquiries and our contact details.

And because every property we list has its own unique reference number, once you find one that fits the bill, you can always search for its Property Reference to check when it is available in future - for an even faster, stress-free repeat booking next time you plan a holiday cottage break.
