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."
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."
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!"
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."
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!"
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."
Pepperscombe Farm, Steyning, Nr Worthing, West Sussex
"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."
Lily Cottage, 26 West Street, Belford, Northumberland
"Just to say thanks for your great site and service! We were with another site but it had slipped down the ranks and we weren't getting very much interest. We signed up with you a couple of weeks ago and had three bookings in the first two days! We are now practically booked right through until September. I'll certianly recommend you to friends with holiday lets."
Myres, Grimness, St Margaret's Hope, Orkney
"I am fully booked for this year and am already taking bookings for next year. The Cottage Guide is the only place The Myres is advertised, so this is all down to you! June 2013."
Sam's Cottage, Alpine, Corrie, Isle of Arran
"We have had a very successful year - Thank you for your great web site, we're very pleased with the ease of use and the help and speed that changes and updates are carried out."
Mountain View, Creagan Road, Corrie, Isle of Arran
"Your website has got us 6 out of our 9 peak season bookings as well as enquiries for already booked weeks. We are really pleased especially as a shopowner in Brodick was telling us that a lot of letting cottages are struggling this year."
Leith's, Front Road, St.Margaret's Hope, Orkney
"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."
