About Internet Cottages

Internet-Cottages started advertising UK holiday cottages in 1998, with a range of Norfolk cottages, which was shortly followed by cottages in other areas of England, Scotland and Wales. The principle throughout has been to offer cottage rentals which can be booked with the holiday homes owners direct, without a commission being charged to the owner, and without any sort of traveller booking fee.

This means that in general, by booking cottages direct, you can save between 10-15% on what you would pay for the same cottage advertised on listing sites such as HomeAway, Owners Direct and HolidayLettings; and whilst Airbnb is more focussed on short term flexible breaks than weekly cottage rentals, a similar markup applies in the shape of their "Service Fee".

The other thing of course with truly owners direct booking is that you're communicating directly with the person that knows most about that cottage, their cottage. And you've got their email address, phone number, their website address if they have one - not all hidden by some silly enquiry system!
