Shortlist

New Property Enjoys Bookings Boost Thanks to cottages.com

The Challenge

When it was time to leave the home my family had lived in for ten years, I simply couldn’t close the door on the house I’d been so happy in. And as for leaving the Highlands? That was out of the question.

I went to cottages.com for their expert, local advice about letting the property as a holiday cottage. I was totally new to the holiday letting industry and the help of cottages.com in guiding the family and I through the process of getting our latest venture up and running was invaluable.

Cottages.com Regional Manager, Lora Morrison said: “The Highlands remain a very popular region for cottages.com, with holidaymakers drawn to the spectacular scenery and the warm welcome, providing a great opportunity for local property owners as Mrs Stewart has proved."

“We’re always delighted to see our properties have such stand-out booking figures and to see Snookie’s Cottage do so well in its first few weeks is testament to the comfort and character of the property and to Mrs Stewart's hard work.”

How we helped

Cottages.com agreed that the property really stood out as having potential and they were only too happy to help us make the transition from family home to rental business.

Because we'd had never ventured into holiday lettings before cottages.com made sure our Regional Manager, Lora, was on hand to offer advice and insights every step of the way and she offered us valuable tips on how to make Snookies Cottage stand out to holidaymakers.

“We’re always delighted to see our properties have such stand-out booking figures and to see Snookie’s Cottage do so well in its first few weeks is testament to the comfort and character of the property and to Mrs Stewart's hard work," Lora said.

I believe that attention to detail is important so I put a lot of effort in delivering the highest quality product to provide the perfect stay for my guests. I’ve had a lot of advice from Lora, who has been able to fill in any gaps in my experience. Lora was brilliant from the word go.

Results

Snookie’s Cottage has been an instant success, securing 19 bookings in its first few months. Because the Highlands is such a stunning area, holiday lettings really have to be of a suitably high standard – and we like to think our property ticks all the right boxes.
