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, country estates and even a tree house. 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.
