Why use us

Why advertise your holiday home with us?

We know that we are not the cheapest site around but consider this. We don't want to swamp our site with thousands of cottages. We try to keep the site small and exclusive and with nearly 100,000 visitors to the site in April alone each property benefits from a high click through rate. Just one booking will cover your costs.

We provide a friendly personal service.

All your emails and enquiries will be quickly dealt with. If you are not comfortable with a computer we will do the work for you! We have advertisers who have advertised their accommodation with us for year after year and are delighted with the service we offer, just look our testimonials from satisfied advertisers!

LMC are constantly marketing this web site as the prime source of late availability holidays for cottages

We have a Number 1 ranking with Google for the search terms 'late availability holiday cottages' and of course, 'last minute holiday cottages'. Go search and see for yourself!

We do not ONLY deal with late bookings

You get a whole webpage allowing you to add as much information as you wish so for many of our clients we are their only web advertising medium! (Remember "last minute" means different things to different people)

We do not take any commission from bookings

We simply charge you a fixed annual fee per year (from just £200.00 + VAT). Just one booking through us will cover your costs! It really is that simple!

Update your listing whenever and as often as you wish

We will provide you with a username and password so that you can update your listing whenever you wish enabling you to advertise even the latest holiday home vacancies.

We can provide you with a Free Availability Calendar

A FREE availability calendar so that you and anyone viewing your property can see any vacancy quickly and easily. This calendar is very easy to use and we can also give you a piece of code to add the calendar to your own website.

We will give you a link to your Virtual Tour (if you have one).

We provide you with the most up to date Google map of your property

We provide you with a link through to your own website (if you have one).

NB. Links are offered to private stand-alone websites only. We do not offer links to pages which are part of other websites such as directories. We cannot offer links to sites which provide an exit route in the form of links to accommodation agencies etc., On Last Minute Cottages we require that all properties are advertised on our sites in order for us to link out to an exterior website. On Big Cottages or The Hen House only those properties sleeping 8 or more need to be advertised in order for us to link out to a website.

Listings can appear in up to 16 ‘specialist facility’ pages!

For example if your property is pet friendly, is wheelchair friendly or suitable for people with limited mobility, has a hot tub, or is located in one of our beautiful National Parks, your listing will also appear on dedicated speciality pages. See our home page for all 16 specialities!
