Our Manifesto

To put owners’ interests at the heart of everything we do.

Without our owners we are nothing. We will always remember this.


A personal service at all times.

Our service trumps any algorithm. (Although we’re still smart at what we do).


Your cottage, your rules.

We will never impose any bookings restrictions.


Always on your side.

We will lobby councils, government the press to promote our owners' interests.


Combine expertise and integrity.

We are cottage owners ourselves and want to do the right thing by you too.

The corona-crisis has revealed the true colours of many cottage agents and booking platforms. Some agents have thrown their owners under the bus to face legal action from angry customers while the agent holds on to money. Airbnb and Booking.com stepped beyond their role of ‘platforms’ and made unilateral decisions to over-rule owner policies and started dictating terms.

In a double-whammy for owners in Wales & Scotland, local councils have also taken action to prevent government grant money reaching holiday let businesses desperately in need of financial assistance.


We think these actions are disgraceful.


Finest Retreats wants to provide a better way.


Be part of something better and let’s revolutionise the way holiday letting is done.

How we are different:

  • Unlimited owner bookings

  • Sync with any booking systems/websites you’re already listed with

  • Security deposits on all bookings

  • Payments in advance - we don’t hold on to your money

  • Free, professional photography

  • Full property management available
