Nearly two years in research and development we think we have created the go-to self-catering website for our times. Never a team to sit on our laurels we are constantly looking at ways to improve our site in terms of customer experience, functionality, SEO, site speed, and ease of use. We know that upward of 50% of all visits to Handpicked Cottages are made via some sort of mobile device such as a phone, tablet or others and we are constantly looking at ways to make searching, filtering, checking availability and making a booking are as seamless as possible. We understand that visitors looking to book a cottage or lodge for a last minute short break or even an annual holiday do not have the time to wade through hundreds of unsuitable properties. Our super search allows you to choose by date, numbers in party, location, collection, facilities and of course availability. You can even search by AONB, Place of Interest or Special Event. FAST!
When we set out on this journey to create Handpicked Cottages one of our main aims was to find the very best self-catering properties from across the whole of the UK. We were also wanted to introduce our visitors to some fantastic areas that may not be the most readily searched for by the masses. Unique places in wonderful locations is our philosophy and we welcome cottage and lodge owners wishing to advertise such a property.
Superb Cottage Locations
While we continue to search to find new and exciting places for our visitors we have already built up a superb portfolio of spectacular locations. Maybe a romantic break Isle of Harris in the Outer Hebrides or perhaps a luxury break in a Windmill in Suffolk (above), what about a gorgeous Northumberland property for two with your own personal indoor pool? See below for just a taste of the incredible cottages we have in our portfolio at Handpicked Cottages.
Celebrate your special occasion in a luxury country house or cottage
Times have changed and as well as all living busy lives families and friends are often spread across the UK. Stay in touch by booking a luxury cottage, mansion or country house to celebrate the next special occasion or even just to catch up with friends and family. We have some excellent properties that cater for large family gatherings, hen weekends or just to see old friends. Image Below Credit Carrington House in Norfolk
At Handpicked Cottages, we like to think that we have a holiday cottage for all types of people and budgets. As you would expect though we have a great range of cottages and lodges that really are quite spectacular in both facilities and location. Obviously, these type of properties do come at a premium but sometimes only the very best will do. Image below The Farmhouse at Tunstall Road Farm in North Yorkshire
