Independent Cottages is owned and run by Sarah and Steve Jarvis.
We started holiday letting in 2002; it was a steep learning curve for us as there were very few resources available to help first-time renters who wanted to let their properties independently. At that time Sarah was working in Sales / Customer Service and Steve was an IT Project Manager with a background in Web Development. In 2006 we started looking for a new challenge and, combining our skills with what we had learned from renting our own holiday cottages, it seemed a natural choice to set up Independent Cottages.
We both have an immense amount of passion for the UK and UK tourism and we've developed a deep knowledge of the domestic self catering market as a result. We pride ourselves on providing a competitive and effective advertising resource for UK self catering owners and aim to provide a friendly, professional and personal service.
Operating out of our office in Kent; we promote self catered holiday accommodation throughout the whole of the UK and have five main aims:
Initially starting on a free-trial basis, we have grown steadily since 2006 and are now proud to promote over 2,250 self catering properties, a collection that is growing all the time. We also provide a wealth of useful information for cottage owners and people thinking of entering the holiday letting market via our Blog; along with plenty of tips and holiday inspiration for holiday makers.
Researching and booking holidays online is now an accepted and commonplace norm and we aim to assist in this process by providing a collection of independently owned holiday accommodation to suit everyone's needs. Whether our visitors are looking for a budget holiday or a couple of nights of luxury, we have a wide range of accommodation to suit all tastes and budgets, including child friendly, pet friendly and wheelchair accessible accommodation.
