Handpicked Cottages is the place to advertise your property, where you – the cottage owner, takes full control.
We never charge commission, any kind of booking fee or take control of your calendar; in fact, you only pay once a year to list with us with no nasty hidden fees.
Our integrated calendars display your live availability* without the need to manually update yet another website, saving you time to run your own business more freely.
We do not allow large cottage agencies to place blanket adverts across our website.
Why advertise with Handpicked Cottages?
As a brand-new website, we believe that our cutting-edge design shows your property in all its glory. Handpicked Cottages allows you to put your property in front of potentially millions of prospective visitors. Our pages are packed with useful information on all UK destinations and every type of holiday guests are looking for.
Do we charge commission?
No, never. We
charge a fixed annual rate starting from just £180 + VAT** which includes the initial setting up of your
advert. We also offer a full range of Premium Advertising opportunities.
What if I have more than one property?
Although you will need a listing for each, owners who have more
than one property will qualify for a discount for multiple listings. Please use the contact form below to find out more.
Do guests book through us?
No. We link directly to your own online booking/availability page and to your own website. All your contact details are visible to the guest. You are in control of every aspect of the booking directly with your potential guest, who can send you any enquiry, click to your website or telephone you direct.
Can I join without my own calendar or website?
If you do not have an availability calendar or even your own website, we can still create an advert for you and you will have access to our manual availability calendar system.
How will my cottage availability be shown?
We integrate our availability with most major booking systems including SuperControl. If you do not have an availability calendar you will have access to our own manual calendar system.
Can my cottage details be changed?
Yes, your Owners Area login will allow you to keep your advert up to date. This same area can be used to promote any Special Offers or Late Availability you may have free of charge.
How will visitors find my property?
We feature your property in multiple Collections such as Pure Luxury, Dog Friendly, Hot Tub Cottages, Romantic Cottages ensuring visitors find your advert in for every type of holiday you offer.
Our filtering system allows visitors to find your property via your location, certain facilities, availability or collection meaning your enquiries will be tailored to your property and less time wasted fielding enquiries that are unsuitable to you.
Can my property be listed in more than one area?
Yes. As well as being listed in a certain region i.e. South West England, you’ll also be added to a county such as Devon. Furthermore, if your property is located in one of the UK’s many National Parks or Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB’s), you’ll be included there too.
