Who are we?

Independent Cottages offers a wide selection of self catering holiday accommodation from oast houses to fisherman’s cottages and town houses to farm stays.

With a huge range of dog friendly cottages; and accommodation ideal for large group bookings, a romantic break or a family holiday, we have something to suit everyone and all budgets. If it’s pure luxury that you’re after, we also have a great selection of Luxury holiday cottages for that something special.

We are not an agency; we put you, the holiday maker, in direct contact with the cottage owner who can answer all your questions first hand. Booking holiday accommodation independently, provides a high level of flexibility and often saves agency fees!
