Providing unparalleled service and support

We’re proud of the relationships we have with our home owners, and will always go the extra mile to offer exceptional service.  We have an office in Dorset, and so can pop out to see you as needed.  We also have the support of a bookings team in Norfolk, who are on hand 7 days a week until late.  If required, we have a strong network of housekeepers and trades, giving you peace of mind that your cottage will always be presented to an exceptional standard.  We will monitor your bookings, and be proactive in discussing how things are going.  We’re always there for you, and your guests. 

Holiday cottage experts

We are a family business that started over 30 years ago.  Since 2014, we have been owned by The Original Cottage Company, now the third largest holiday home letting agency in the UK.  We have retained our local team, and their wealth of knowledge, but now also have the support of a much larger organisation, with enormous expertise in website design, search engine optimisation, and online marketing.

A local team

Our main office is in Swanage where we have a team of five, taking bookings, making recommendations, managing properties and marketing locally.  We also have a Property Manager based in West Dorset.  We have a fantastic portfolio of holiday cottages throughout Dorset.  Everyone in the office knows the properties well, visit and inspect them regularly, as well as advise guests as to which property might best suit their needs.  Whether people are looking for a short break in Dorset, pet-friendly cottages in Dorset, a cottage with a pool or simply a sea view, our team will find their perfect property. 

We are all local and have expert knowledge of Dorset, its attractions, local festivals, and can advise guests about things to do in and around the area in which they are staying.  We want our guests to have a fantastic experience in this beautiful county, and come back again year after year.  

A valued partner

We see the relationship with our home owners as a partnership.  We’re friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.  We aim to develop a long-term relationship with our home owners, many of whom have been with us for many years.  We want to be able to offer Dorset holiday cottages that our guests love every year, and so work hard to ensure that we’re getting it right with our home owners, as well as the team supporting the property, from housekeepers to trades. 

Available 7 days a week

The majority of guest bookings take place online, but some do want to talk to us.  Whether that’s to make a holiday cottage booking, discuss a booking, or answer some questions about the local area, and so it’s important that we’re available 7 days a week.

Our booking line is open from 8am to 8pm Monday to Saturday, and 10am to 6pm on Sunday.   

Our Swanage office will take the calls during its opening hours between 9.00am – 5.00pm Monday to Saturday. When the office is closed, or if all our lines are busy, your call will be answered by our friendly Sales Support Team in Norfolk, who will take bookings, answer queries or ensure the customer receives a call back from the local Swanage team, if required.

What next?

No matter what stage you’re at with your Dorset holiday cottage, we’re happy to help. 

We would normally meet you at your property, as we are then able to provide more informed advice, but we are equally happy for you to drop in to see us, or meet elsewhere if that suits you better. 

Our experienced team of Property Managers are able to provide a full assessment of your Dorset holiday home potential, including suggestions for property improvements and letting guidance.  We will always try to be realistic with our income projections.  We’re in this for the long term, and hope you will be too.
