Background to Holiday Cottage Compare

Born out of frustration at how long it took to find the perfect holiday cottage, was launched as an online booking site in December 2012.

What makes us different?

With leading edge search functionality and a simple user interface, we offer holiday makers a significantly easier and faster way of finding a holiday cottage in the UK. 

We allow users to locate their property of choice using real time availability and pricing before making an online booking directly with the owner or agent. 

Holiday Cottage Compare also gives holiday cottage letting agents and owners greater exposure and access to the marketplace than they might otherwise afford, through a commission based model.

Whilst other sites differentiate themselves on price or the number of properties they advertise, Holiday Cottage Compare’s focus has always been on offering the very best user experience.

Fully responsive, the site allows users to search with ease on any device.  And our search functionality is constantly improving.

Holiday Cottage Compare now offers holiday makers in excess of 11,000 properties, with great coverage throughout the UK.

Over 12,000 holiday cottages to rent throughout the UK

With over 12,000 holiday cottages throughout the UK, we have something for everyone. From cosy, one-bedroom fisherman’s cottages in the north to stately homes costing £94,000 per week in the south!

Property types include stately homes, town houses, country retreats, bungalows and apartments.

Including hundreds of quirky and unusual properties...

We also have an excellent range of quirky and unusual holiday cottages, which include yurts; shepherd’s huts; luxury safari tents; boathouses; towers; oast houses and converted train carriages!

We even have a large and impressive range of lighthouses right round the UK coastline!
