About Independent Cottages

Providing a large choice of independently owned self catering accommodation in the UK

Independent Cottages is owned and run by Sarah and Steve Jarvis who have both been cottage owners in the UK for over ten years. With an immense amount of passion for UK tourism and knowledge in the self catering market, Independent Cottages prides itself on providing a competitive, effective advertising resource for UK self catering owners with a friendly, professional and personal service.

Operating out of an office in Kent; Independent Cottages promotes self catered holiday accommodation throughout the whole of the UK and was established in 2007 to fulfil three main aims:

  • To allow owners of self catering accommodation to promote their properties independently.
  • To put the holiday maker in touch with the cottage owner directly by providing a reliable, easy-to-use website with a large choice of holiday accommodation throughout the United Kingdom.
  • To provide a facility for promoting late availability offers for holiday makers who are looking to get away at short notice for a last minute break.

Initially starting on a free-trial basis, Independent Cottages has grown steadily over the years and is now proud to promote over 1400 self catering properties, a collection that is growing all the time. It also provides a wealth of useful information for cottage owners and people thinking of entering the holiday letting market via its blog; along with plenty of tips and holiday inspiration for holiday makers.

More and more people around the world are booking their holidays online and Independent Cottages aims to assist in this process by providing a collection of holiday accommodation to suit everyone's needs. Whether you are looking for a budget holiday or a couple of nights of luxury, Independent Cottages has a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets, including child friendly, pet friendly and wheelchair accessible accommodation.
