24 Lower Shader, Barvas, Isle of Lewis, Western Isles
"I would like to say how delighted I am with the level of enquiries and number of bookings I have made since advertising on your web site. Compared to VisitScotland whom I previously used, you offer far better value for money and a much more efficient service. I only wish I had discovered you years ago."

10 Lower Sandwick, Stornoway, Isle of Lewis, Western Isles
"I am very pleased with the response I have received through the Cottage Guide website and I have no hesitation in recommending you to other self catering cottage owners. The service you provide is first class as is the value relative to your advertising rates."

Flint Cottage, c/o Highleigh Barn, Bremere Lane, Chichester, West Sussex
"I have been extremely pleased with the response I have received. If only others would take a tip from you and make their sites so user friendly."

The River House, 29 Ford Road, Arundel, West Sussex
"We are so very pleased with your site for avertising our two properties, and do not need to advertise anywhere else!"

60 Seatown, Cullen, Banffshire, Morayshire
"Your site is excellent and all queries and requests are handled so quickly and efficiently. I have had a very good response and with this being my first summer season have been happy with bookings. I was silly enough to be enticed into advertising with another website, but it cost £150 for 6 months and was a complete waste of money. I learned that I got all the bookings through your site. I would highly recommend your company to anyone starting up or established. Thanks to you and your team for your hard work and my success."

La Pompe Country Apartments, St.Martin, Guernsey
"The Cottage Guide continues to offer good value and lots of enquiries that do convert into bookings."

Oak and Fir Tree Lodges, Linsmore, Tor View, Contin, Ross-shire
"The Cottage Guide website suits me very well and the customers are used to looking through the Availability and Yearly Calendar sections. Although much of my custom is repeat bookings, many of them first came via your website and continue to use it as an easy means of organising their dates. We are very lucky with customers - probably our busiest season yet - between us we must be getting something right! Looking forward to November - as I'm hoping to get a break then before Christmas and New Year!"

Chapel Cottage, Middleton by Youlgrave, Bakewell, Derbyshire
"The Cottage Guide continues to be an easy to use site and produces good results whereas what we have noticed with some other sites that we have advertised with, is that the more 'sophisticated' and complex their sites become, the fewer enquiries we receive. We think that some sites have become too complicated for mere mortals to use. But the Cottage Guide is still good!"

Quarry Hockford Barn Cottages, Staple Cross, Wellington, Somerset - Devon border
"I would just like to say that the business we get from you is way in excess of anything else we have tried, including one or two who have been considerably more expensive. Enquiry levels from your Cottage Guide have been good, whereas from other sites they have been very poor."

Lemmings at Last Lantern Cottage, Hewish, Crewkerne, Somerset
"Our bookings have been amazing this year, and we are absolutely delighted with your efforts on our behalf securing maximum bookings. Your company is progressive, easy to contact, and has amazing reach world wide - indeed five of our customers have come from overseas this year"

Kinaldy Cottage, Calvine, Pitlochry, Perthshire
"The cottage this year has been very successful in that I have had 42 weeks let and very nice guests as well. The majority of bookings come through Cottage Guide. In view of this we never regret our joining and consider it very good value."

Thirkleby Hall Cottages, Oakmount, Thirkleby Park, Thirsk, North Yorkshire
"Many thanks, we have been pleased with Cottage Guide again this year. Very good website!"

The Granary, North Boreston Farm, Halwell, Totnes, South Devon
"We like to make a feature of the garden, and had hoped to attract keen gardeners, so advertised in 'The Garden', the monthly journal of the Royal Horticulatural Society. That cost £130 and brought only 4 or 5 enquiries and only 2 bookings. For the same cost we put The Granary on your Cottage Guide website, and were then fully booked from May to the end of October."

Spoutscroft Cottage, Townend, Austwick, Nr Settle, North Yorkshire
"I am a relatively new advertiser on the Cottage Guide website, but I just had to let you know how impressed I am with the service that you offer. My bookings have soared. Enquiries are endless, and my guests tell me how easy the site is to use ...as I know only too well, being a beginner! Advertising is now one area of my business that I have no concerns about, and I will recommend your company to friends in the future. Well done to you and your staff!"

The Hayloft, Warren Carr Barn, Stanton Lees, Matlock, Derbyshire
"Wonderful results from my web page with you. My cottage is booked all year! Thank you."

Caberfeidh, Birchburn, Aultbea, Achnasheen, Ross-shire
"...the Cottage Guide site is clear, easily accessible for clients and holidaymakers alike, and not over-complicated. Most importantly of all, it responds to all the likely keywords in a search on Google. We have an Italian family arriving tomorrow who found us that way. Thanks again for your help."

Gladwyn Cottage, Litton Cheney, Dorchester, Dorset
"Thank you for an excellent service - almost all our bookings have been generated from the Cottage Guide website, and we will no longer be using any other form of advertising."

"Over the first 12 months with your website, I have had 133 email inquiries, including USA, South Africa, Belgium, France, Australia - the remainder in the UK - of which approx 20% have booked with us. I think it is very good value advertising and appreciate your helpful response to my inquiries over the 12 months. Thank you."

Lismore, 2 Blantyre Place, Portknockie, Buckie

"I don't think it is a coincidence that 2011 was the first season I advertised with the Cottage Guide and also the best season I have had in the five years since we started. Clearly the Cottage Guide is an effective way to market the house as the majority of new bookings came through it, and I think it has been well worth keeping the 52 week calendar and late vacancies facilities up to date."

Plenploth House, Stow, Galashiels, Scottish Borders
"We got lots of bookings through your website last year and I am very pleased with it as it is extremely good value. I am recommending you to others who are thinking about renting out their property!"
