We’re in the running for Best Company for UK Holiday Home Rentals

It’s been a fantastic year so far and the team at Bolthole Retreats is delighted to have been nominated for Best Company for UK Holiday Home Rentals at this year’s British Travel Awards. We would really appreciate if you could take the time to vote for us. Everyone who votes in the British Travel Awards could win an amazing prize, including some fantastic holidays.

Staying in the UK for your holidays has become more popular every year and a Cotswold cottage in a beautiful region ticks all the boxes. This year we hit the milestone of representing more than 200 holiday homes, from shepherds huts to grand gatehouses. Our friendly team based in Cheltenham are just a phone call away to help you find the perfect place for your getaway, and we enjoy nothing more than pairing guests with their best holiday experiences. We always love hearing your feedback too, below are some of our recent guest reviews:

“The property was exactly what was listed, we had no complaints at all. We were looking for a relaxing weekend and that is what we got. The property was spacious and clean. Bolthole Retreats sent a fantastic Welcome Guide which was easy to follow.”

“Excellent property. Exactly as described. Wonderful place to stay, and central to different places to visit. Bolthole Retreats staff terrific to work with. Highly recommended.”

“Bolthole Retreats was a joy to work with from start to finish. They were informative and timely with information that we needed for our trip. The beautiful home that we rented was beyond our expectations in terms of the location, facilities, the enclosed garden, and the beautiful decor. It was all together a first-class experience, and we now consider ourselves to be loyal patrons, and we will return.”

We have been recognised as Holiday Home Rental Agency of the Year earlier this year at the Central England Prestige Awards and a win at the British Travel Awards too would be absolutely wonderful. The British Travel Awards celebrate the very best in the industry, as voted for by guests. As an independent agency, we are proud to be able to offer our guests some of the very best holiday homes in the Cotswolds. Your vote would mean the world to us, as a small, independent business.

Because we’re based in Cheltenham, the cultural capital of the Cotswolds, we really know the area amazingly well. Most of us grew up in the area and those of us that didn’t have spent a lot of time exploring and having days out to the many towns and villages in the Cotswolds.

We go to the local events, we visit each and every one of our cottages, we try out the village pubs (it’s a tough job!) and this means we can recommend the best experiences to our guests while they are on holiday. We also really are a lovely bunch with decades of experience in the travel industry, always looking forwards and making innovative changes to the way people find and book their staycations.

Founded by Martin McWilliam, Bolthole Retreats also offers unparalleled support to owners, often building relationships over several years and helping people to find the perfect cottage to purchase as a holiday rental. We offer advice on what makes a cottage successful and ensure standards are met for our guests, and are always easily contactable with any questions.

Whether you’ve enjoyed a fantastic Cotswold holiday with us or are hoping to in the future, please vote for us in the British Travel Awards 2023 and help us to share our love of the Cotswolds far and wide.

Vote in the British Travel Awards before 1 October 2023 for your chance to win a great prize, from a Greek holiday to a cruise in the Fjords and a range of fantastic holiday gift vouchers.

Wish us luck and thank you for voting!
