About Manor Cottages

Manor Cottages is a Cotswolds based holiday cottage business.. we’ve been letting holiday cottages for over 25 years. The business has grown enormously in 25 years, but what has remained exactly the same in all that time, are our core family values. From Day 1 we set out to offer honest, friendly and trusted advice and with this set of principles, we have grown from offering a handful of cute, thatched cottages for two, to 300+ cottages of all shapes and sizes, spacious family getaways and grand Manors for special occasions.

All our holiday cottages are inspected and regularly reviewed. We have the widest selection of the best self-catering properties available in the Cotswolds and far beyond. Our cottage locations span from Stratford-upon-Avon in the north and down to Bath in the south, from Woodstock in Oxfordshire Cotswolds across to the beautiful Wye Valley. At Manor Cottages we mightily are proud to be offering some of the most sought after holiday properties in this most attractive corner of the UK.

A little history..

The Manor Cottages journey began in 1989 with a Colin and Angela, the original owners, renting their little stables out for self-catering holidays.

Next a few friends ask for help with letting their properties out and then, before they knew it, Manor Cottages were up and running and slowly but surely grew from a couple to 40 cottages over the next 15 years.

In 2005 they met current owner, Chris Grimes, who took over the business at a crucial stage where Angela and Colin felt they had done what they could for the business which, at this stage, was with the aid of good old fashioned wall charts for 'live' availability and a one page website.

Since then, Chris and his ever growing team have provided the platform for Manor Cottages to evolve and continuously grow. In 2014 we processed 5,000 bookings, received 25,000 guests in our cottages and generated nearly 40,000 unique visits to our website each month.
