About Premier Cottages

Premier Cottages was established in 1999 and now represents almost 1,000 cottages in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Isles of Scilly and the Channel Islands. It is not a bookings agency but an organisation of independent self-catering holiday cottage owners who work together to promote their luxury four and five star holiday accommodation.


Properties featured by Premier Cottages range from small romantic boltholes to opulent large party houses and country estates.  Guests book direct with the owner and therefore benefit from a whole reservoir of local knowledge. The company prides itself on selling a holiday rather than just a cottage. Also as most of the owners live on site they are there to help when needed and also to provide information on local events, restaurants and attractions.


Premier Cottages' charity for 2014 is Macmillan Cancer. The collection's members have already raised over £52,000 for this vital organisation by donating holidays in their cottages that the charity can use as prizes in its fundraising, and other initiatives such as long distance bike rides, dinners and coffee mornings to increase awareness of its work. There are also collection boxes in some members' properties. In practical terms, £52,000 is enough to fund a Macmillan nurse for a full year, helping people living with cancer and their families receive essential, practical and emotional support
