Many of our owners are happy to make their own arrangements for the provision of services for their guests. They may choose to do this themselves or obtain their own designated Caretaker or Maintenance provider. In such cases we act as a booking agent, marketing your property and accepting bookings. We simply notify you of bookings and you welcome your guests ensuring that that their holiday requirements are met in accordance with our booking term and conditions.

For a long time, there has been confusion and poor understanding about the availability of holiday let finance for cottages. Many traditional brokers are unclear about the differences between business loans, holiday let finance, and buy to let mortgages and property owners are often told, wrongly, that holiday let mortgages are only available as an expensive form of commercial finance which must be repaid under normal banking terms, like a 5 year repayment loan at 6% per annum.
Lakelovers has secured a relationship with Holiday Cottage Mortgages (HCM), a specialist online mortgage broker created specifically to help existing and new holiday let property owners secure affordable mortgage finance on their prized holiday homes. Founded by holiday letting experts, HCM brings together a broad and deep understanding of the holiday letting industry with professional and authorised mortgage broking, all delivered through an intuitive, easy to use, online platform.
Working alongside Lakelovers, HCM’s ambition is help you to realise your holiday letting opportunity by providing a free of charge, specialised online service, focussed solely on arranging holiday let mortgages. To find out more, visit: www.holidaycottagemortgages.co.uk or email [email protected]
