This has been a horrible year for booking a holiday cottage! But we're keen to give you the confidence to book ahead for 2021
This year has been, quite frankly, an absolute disaster for the holiday cottage industry. But with hope on the horizon, and vaccines rolling out, we want to instil you with the confidence to book your end of lockdown holiday.
After the first lockdown finished we filled all of our holiday cottages within just a few weeks, many independent holiday cottage owners capitalised on this by hugely inflating their prices - with even reports that owners were cancelling peoples bookings in order to take huge offers from other families. My Favourite Cottages will never cancel a booking unless there’s a very good reason!
Along with the wave of bookings from the end of the first lockdown, came a wave of cancellations following the news of the second lockdown - we want to assure you that a full refund of the accommodation will be given for any cancellations as a result of lockdowns or Covid-19 illness.
We predict another surge in bookings following the easing of the current restrictions so we encourage you to book early for dates in mid to late 2021 or fear missing out on your favourite much needed holiday when everyone is safe to do so.

As restrictions continue to ease and the Great British Summer is finally in full flow, we’ve analysed Google search data to find out which features travellers want most in their next holiday rental.
Summer is fast approaching us, and we've never seen our calendars so full for the early summer breaks. Still looking? Don't worry we do have new properties being added all the time, as well as last minute cancellations, so you do still have time to book an early summer break.
We've analysed data from UK holidaymakers to see trends and changes in how people are planning to book and travel, along with reasons why they might not want to! With the opening of everything coming up, we're looking forward to welcoming travellers from across the UK.
