We work for you - and here's how

The My Favourite Cottages approach is very different to other standard agencies. Our model helps us to be completely flexible, and enables us to fit in with your individual needs. From professional photography to pricing and bespoke marketing plans, our goal is to get you and your property as many bookings as you need, without you having to do the legwork. You can enjoy receiving bookings whilst you are on holiday, playing golf, at work and even while you sleep.

Contact My Favourite Cottages today on 01271 377 432 to find out more about our services, and to discuss our competitve rates of commission.

At My Favourite Cottages we know that if you can drive a potential booker to a well-designed, easy to navigate website, which is promoting an individual property, then the chances of securing a booking are much higher. Combine a beautiful website with well written, informative copy and stunning professional photography and the chances of a potential guest being tempted away by other similar cottages are greatly reduced.

The team at My Favourite Cottages will share with you a wealth of advice on holiday property management, and you will receive your income when your guest pays, guaranteeing a steady flow of income all year round. We will also get to know your cottage as well as you do, so when dealing with bookers we will be able to answer a variety of questions efficiently and with confidence.

Want to know more? Call us on 01271 377 432. Tell us what it is you’re looking for in marketing your holiday cottage and managing your bookings. We’ll listen and then suggest ways we can help you enjoy owning a successful holiday property business.

Marketing

Over the years My Favourite Cottages has built successful partnerships with several leading online directories. We have found sites that work, generating not only enquiries and traffic for your website but also bringing in bookings. By marketing your property individually, we can tailor your advertising package to suit your target market and make it stand out from the crowd.

How we market

Web design

My Favourite Cottages has learnt over the years how a holiday property website should tell its own story so that the happy ending is a booking.

We will create an individual, properly optimised website, designed to please Google and its fellow search engines. It’ll also be designed to wow your potential guests, and persuade them to hit the book now button.

Photography

Give your website a real wow factor. Stand out from the crowd with a portfolio of property photographs from our specialized photographer. We’ll arrange a one-day professional shoot of your property’s interior and exterior for you to use on your website and advertising, as well as any other literature you use. We’ll also give you top tips on how to get the best out of your very own ‘shoot.’ And the good news is, all rights to the photos will be yours.

Housekeeping

My Favourite Cottages can help you with all your housekeeping and maintenance requirements. As well as offering a bespoke marketing plan for your holiday cottage, we have developed firm links with local “Housekeepers” who can assist with setting up a tailored housekeeping package to fit in with you and your holiday cottage’s requirements.

Payments

Unlike many other agencies, at My Favourite Cottages we pay our clients within 14 days of us receiving any money, allowing you to receive an income all year round. This means no more waiting until the guest has been and gone before the money is transferred to your account. In conjunction with your payments is a comprehensive statement giving you details of what income you are to receive, and for which bookings.

My Favourite Cottages works with one of the leading online booking and management systems, SuperControl. This excellent self-catering booking system helps us to keep up to date with all bookings and enquiries, as well as keeping an extensive database of past guests to allow us to target repeat bookings.

Advice

Setting up and maintaining a successful holiday cottage business is very rewarding. It can also be extremely stressful with the path to success lined with potential potholes that can see you waste a lot of time and money.We offer a personal service based on us really getting to know your holiday cottage – and you getting to know us. Talk to us every week if you like, or once in a blue moon, we are always available, and we will be more than happy to assist you in any way we can. We can also guarantee that you will not be directed to a call-centre. Instead you will be able to speak to a member of the team who knows you and your property.

At your disposal will be our extensive holiday cottage marketing experience, as we promote your cottage, and care for your bookings in a way that other agencies simply cannot, and all at very competitive rates.

My Favourite Cottages can also offer expert advice to anyone looking to buy or convert a property for holiday lettings, as well as those already in the business. We have years of expertise and hindsight to put at your disposal. We’ve learnt a lot from managing our own properties, and even more from working with other property owners, so, whether it is advice on refurbishment options, drafting an owner-booker contract or the development of a marketing and advertising plan, My Favourite Cottages is here to help. Call us today on 01271 377 432 to find out more about our services.
