Owner Feedback:

We have received these comments from current owner advertisers - all of whom are contactable for verification:

We have had a fantastic 15 years living and working here but the events of the past year have persuaded us that it is now time for a change. We expect to be moving in February/March but given the current restrictions on hospitality, we are assuming we will not take any more bookings between now and then. I'd just like to thank you for all your help over the last 13 years. It's been a real pleasure working with you and your team and we really appreciate the contribution you have made to the success of our business.
Lindsay, from Chaffeymoor Grange.
Firstly thank you for all your help through the year I am not doing bad this year have booked up all the summer holidays just trying to promote dates which are not school holidays...
Lorraine Stubberfield
I would like to thank you and your team for the excellent website and the bookings we received.
Ginny Gibson
After 14 happy and successful years letting Lyndale for holidays we have finally retired and the property has now been sold. I would be grateful therefore if you could remove the listing for Lyndale from your site. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your service which has been very helpful and productive for us.
Lyndale Cottage
Hi there, I would be very happy for you to include my comments on your feedback section, in fact I would like to add we have excellent results from your websites throughout the year and are impressed with the speedy way that any problems are dealt with and welcome the reminders to add late availabilty and special offers - it keeps me on my toes!!!
Alison at Boatside Cottage
You do rank high on referrals to our own website and your website is excellent. Thank you.
Margaret McDiarmid of Castle Menzies Farm Holiday Cottages
It is now just over a year since we came on the site with you and I wanted to write and thank you. It has been extremely beneficial with us receiving a record amount of bookings, all without any problems! We are also on with ****** ***** and, despite that being a much larger outfit, we get as many, if not more bookings through you.
Amanda Suttie with Milnthorpe House in Suffolk with swimming pool
you are by far the best web site to advertise with for holiday cottage rental
Gilly Thomas with Fairlie Cottage in the Cotswolds
You have given us the confidence to break free from using Agencies - a big step for us.

Hi thank you for your email, yes we are booked for christmas and new year and your site works really well , thank you.
Diana Brewer of the Granary in Somerset
We are having a wonderful season here in Ilfracombe. Fully booked until 2nd week September, all thanks to your website. Shame you couldn't order the weather! Woken up this morning at 4am with hail banging on the roof and the windows. St. Swithen has a lot to answer for!
Sue Garwood of Fishermans Cottage in Hele Bay near Ilfracombe
We love your site and get lots of enquiries from it
Sinead Connelly of Clonleason Lodge in County Meath Ireland
we have managed to sell and although exchange has not yet taken place the new owners want a completion date of July 8th ! We have already told them that cc- on -line com & net are by far the best sites of the few that we use for advertising.
Sue Bomford of Stonebarrow Manor in Dorset
I must say that your website pretty much supplies me with most of my bookings so I do appreciate what you do!
Paul Sandford of Woodend Cottage in the Lake District
I am absolutely thrilled with your service - and have had most of my bookings through you at the end of last year - THANK YOU SO MUCH
Janie Hextall with Dairy Cottage in the Cotswolds
We seem to be getting a lot of enquiries from you at the moment . . . which is good because Perthshire in Scotland is a glorious holiday location, as is all of Scotland - a country with stunning wilderness locations and vibrant cities.
Gill Hunt from Westerlix cottages in Perthshire
Bookings are going very well and seem to be holding up despite the credit crunch and we are very pleased with the response form both sites. Kind Regards. Suzanne
Suzanne Ryder of Thousand Acres in Gloucestershire
I am so very pleased with the response I'm getting from the cottage's listing on your directories - thank you very much!!
Sarah Machin, of Windover Farm Cottage in Devon
I would like to thank you for producing so many customers for us, it was the best thing we did going on your site. I have recommended you to a lady who has just started up in Bewdley and have told her how pleased we are and what good value your site is.
Kim Simmons of Forest View Retreat
Wow... I've been inundated with quality replies to my advert via your website... extremely impressed, many thanks!
Nicky with a rather special property in Surrey
we are getting lots of enquiries so really pleased
Rachel Needham of Stretton Lakes
I have just got around to checking out the additional website and found it excellent. Your site has proved an absolute godsend and I get many many successful hits leading to bookings through you. You must invest alot in your SEO as it is encouraging to see the excellent coverage on google. This proved a lifeline to me, as just before Christmas I had alot of upheaval with the people looking after my site SEO - they are in financial difficulties unfortunately - and so I decided to move onto another company. Shock horror though, they weren't happy and sabotaged my site (removed me from google altogether !) so my new optimisation people have had a bit of a battle on their hands. Thankfully its sorted and I'm back on google in my own right again, but if it hadn't been for Country Cottages online I would have had no hits at all, as the ones I did get all came via you. Keep up the good work and I hope you go from strength to strength in 2008. best wishes
Paula Penny of Low Moor Cottages in Yorkshire
Have to congratulate you, nearly every enquiry comes through you

Dear Christine & John, Just to say an enormous THANK-YOU to Country Cottages Online.In the past year I've listed my property with 4 or 5 internet agencies but my advert with you has yielded dozens of bookings and literally hundreds of enquiries. In my experience, your service is cheaper and much more worthwhile than any of your competitors.I have no hesitation in renewing my advert. Last year's lettings were a huge success and I couldn't have done it without your help!
Patrick O'Hagan, owner of Burnham-High-Lighthouse in Somerset
your site works so we've added another unit! Regards, Robert

My renewal date isn't until April 2006 but I am already receiving enquiries for next year, so please can you let me know how and when I can put a calendar and dates up on the site for April onwards. Many thanks for all your help over my first year which has been more successful than I dared hope.

I only finished giving you our information on Friday I think, and you transferred it straight away to your website - by Sunday, we had had a booking! We are so impressed - thank you.
Sue Furnival of the Barn Croft in Ledbury, Herefordshire
Just to let you know, we now have 5 confirmed weeks and have only been with you for about the same number. We are both very pleased with the results and so far we've had loads of positive feedback on the site and are looking forward to the same on the flat. Thanks for all your help.

The Country Cottages Online site works extremely well for me, sometimes a little too well as I am inundated on a daily basis with enquiries from people.................
Marcus Milton of The Green in Derbyshire
Our thanks for all the enquiries sent on by you and the huge sucess of our advertising with you. We are full to bursting this year and for well over half of next. Corporate groups seem to be picking up on our size and location being perfect for small group training sessions and so midweek bookings are on the up.
Sue of Stonebarrow Manor in Dorset
Ps on our web stats your site is the one proving to have most visits after the main search engines of google and yahoo.
William Tilley of Walkers Farm Cottages in Somerset
As newcomers to holiday letting and the advertising that goes with it, we're very grateful to have come across Country Cottages Online. Christina has been a ever-available source of information and guidance, with the patience of a Saint amidst a torrent of emails and phone calls. As a result of your help we're now getting calls from people who know we exist, which is what it's all about. Thank you for providing a superb service.
Alison and Roger Oliver of Beach Cottage in Jaywick Sands, Essex
Now fully booked for August..... thanks for such a good website.
Richard Copus of Stoodley Barn in Devon
Thank you for this enquiry (yes I have replied direct) plus all of the others over the past 6 months. We have done no other advertising at all and, on the basis of the first half year, we should easily reach an occupancy of 30 weeks for our first year. We thought we may get about 10 days of bookings over the Christmas period, in fact we have had 6 bookings totalling 22 days all apparently preparing for, recovering from or celebrating something to do with the time of year. Tough but profitable! Thank you for your contribution - we could not have done it without you. Very Best Wishes for a happy and Prosperous New Year.
Robert Lewis of the Granary (new property) in Manningtree, Essex

PLEASE NOTE: All the above have opted for Advertising Package 2 which covers both Country Cottages Online websites.


We do not wish to renew our membership. However, Country Cottages Online has been absolutely brilliant and worth every penny. We would certainly come straight to you in the future should we wish to rent out Sedge Cottage again as a holiday let.
Jessica Widdows of Sedge Cottage
Yes please, keep Cholwell Hall on the websites. I think countrycottagesonline works very well indeed, and I wouldn't dream of being left off!

We are so pleased with the response we get from advertising our Southwold cottage on your site that we wondered if you could help with our villa in Cyprus which is now available for holiday lets.

Your web site is the most effective on the web by miles...my stats show that you are way out front.

Please may I take the opportunity of thanking you for the business that has come our way from your website. We only started this venture this year and have had an occupancy rate way above our expectations as a direct result of our own website and yours and 2 other websites that offer a similar service to you!..

I have to congratulate you on the amazing job you do getting us visitors. We advertise on more than 150 websites from around the world but yours gets us more than twice as many visitors than anyone else. Keep it up, Tass

I've had a great year of renting through your excellent website. Please let me know when the next year becomes due, as I don't want to miss out.
Miriam Margolyes of The Gun Emplacement in Kent

Please note: the success of any advertising is very much determined by the quality and presentation of your accommodation. The more attractive the property with recreational facilities, the better the results.
