About Holiday Cottage Getaways

Information About Our Website

Holiday Cottage Getaways are registered affiliates of the UK's largest holiday property advertisers HomeAway.co.uk. Almost all the cottage ads listed on our site have been designed as a quick introduction to the main advertisements featured on the HomeAway site.

We have recently introduced a new advertising feature where rental propety advertisers who have their own website, are able to advertise their properties on our website. These advertisements link to their own website see details

When you click on any of our introductory ads you are taken to the full advertisement on HomeAway or the website of private property owners where you can find the complete property details, booking, more property photos and area details.

There is now a 9 month availability calendar for each HomeAway property to save you having to go to the main HomeAway page to see if the property is available for the dates you require but please note that not all advertisers keep calendars up to date


There are thousands of affiliate websites advertising everything from frying pans to combined harvesters on behalf of manufacturers, suppliers and letting agencies. The majority of price comparison websites are affiliate sites. Affiliates earn money by sending visitors to the manafacturer or supplier websites and are often more successful than the main sites themselves. If the visit results in a sale or sometimes an enquiry, the affiliate receives a commision.

Think of it this way, if you had a product to sell, would you place a small ad in a local newspaper where it might be seen by a few hundred people, or do you get it listed on hundreds of affiliated websites where it has the potential to be seen by millions of people?  


Holiday Cottage Getaways uses auto updating datafeeds supplied by HomeAway which ensures that all the property listings are bang up to date. We try to include as much relevant information as possible without overloading the user, hopefully giving enough details for the visitor to know if the property will be suitable before clicking through to the main ad. The availability calendars are a useful addition for checking the property is available for the dates required.

Not all advertisers want the prices displayed on introductory ads so if no price is displayed you need to view the current price  on the main HomeAway advertisement.  If the advertiser has chosen to show prices on the introductory ads we show the minimum and maximum prices charged and the time period.



Perhaps surprisingly, one of the best sources for late cottage deals is the auction site Ebay.  We have included live Ebay data feeds in various sections of the site which display all the latest offers available.


We have tried to make the site as user friendly as possible.  The main menus (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales) contain a list of counties or areas and are located at the top of every page. The area pages have  sub menus of towns and villages within the chosen area so for example clicking Cumbria on the main England menu at the top of the page will open the Cumbria main page where you can find the Cumbria sub menu showing a list of popular towns and villages in Cumbria and the Lake district. On some area pages we have started to include a Wikipedia link which opens in the same page and gives information about the area


Holiday Cottage Getaways is mobile friendly, just google holidaycottagegetaways.com on your smartphone and  you will be automatically directed to the mobile version of our site where you can browse through all the cottages with our mobile user friendly menus.


We would love to hear from you, especially if you would like to contribute any ideas to make the site more user friendly and informative. We want all our new town and village information to be as accurate as possible and not just copied from other sites so if you'd like to write an article about where you live or a place you know well it would help us enormously. At the moment we need articles for places in the Yorkshire Dales, Cornwall, Devon and Northumberland, drop us a line using the form below and we'll get back to you
