Your holiday cottage Availability, Booking and Payment Page

Careful pricing is the key to getting high occupancy rates and a better
return on your holiday let investment

We will discuss the rents you require for each week of the year and then display percentage rentals for three possible booking categories for each week:

  • Long Weekend
  • Mid-Week Stay
  • Weekly Stay


We take into account

  • Low Season
  • Mid-Season
  • High Season
  • Bank Holidays


Our experienced letting team will negotiate with potential guests where necessary to get the maximum income for you. Automated booking sites cannot offer this quick fire negotiation or indeed the sales aspect of speaking to a friendly and skilled lettings negotiator.

Rates charged for your holiday let are a matter of comparison, Glaven Valley has one of the largest databases of holiday cottages in the area, so we can quickly show you comparable properties to help establish the correct tariffs:

Take a look and compare your cottage with the competition:

Coastal Cottages

The main coastal villages are in the highest demand commanding the highest rentals and normally an 80% occupancy rate.


Stiffkey Cottages

2 Bed 3 Bed 4 Bed plus


Blakeney Cottages

2 Bed 3 Bed 4 Bed plus


Wells - next -to-the Sea Cottages

2 Bed  3 Bed 4 Bed plus

Inland Cottages

There is no doubt that cottages slightly inland to do not achieve the same rental and high occupancy rates as the main coastal villages.

We will discuss your booking preferences and list them on your booking page

Set out criteria of acceptable bookings - Only couples or singles, no big family groups, or whatever is your preference. We will then stick to this criteria. It is not practical to consult with you on every booking but we need to discuss fully your preferred do's and don'ts. ( automated booking systems do not give you this element of control).

  • No Smokers
  • Services Included
  • Services Not Included
  • Allow Dog
  • Deposit Taken
  • Other stipulations


See an example here

We set up a booking web page with a booking calendar that automatically updates the availability shown on your Glaven Valley adverts.

Landlord Direct will create your own personal availability & payment page which can then be linked to your Glaven Valley adverts. Your booking calendar will automatically update the booking calendars shown on your Glaven Valley web listings.

All the different online adverts share the same availability calendar, which automatically update each time a booking is made.

We have an online / email booking system, and we take payments over the phone by card payment

We use the best of technology to speed up our booking systems using a carefully designed email delivery of the documentation required, but we still insist on taking payments in person over the phone, this helps to verify the identity of the guests booking with us.



We are a properly registered letting agent carrying Client Money Protection Insurance, now a legal requirement for all letting agents, so client monies are legally covered and protected.

 We then send payment and a statement of account to our holiday let owners on a monthly basis.
