Stilwell’s Cottages Direct offers a great selection of holiday properties across the UK and Ireland, from bed and breakfast accommodation to cottages and lodges. All properties are privately owned and can be booked direct with the owner over the phone, by email or via our online reservation service.
Stilwell’s Cottages Direct initially existed as separate businesses for over 16 years, with Stilwell’s Publishing focusing on the production of a paper based directory. Cottages Direct offered an online directory which allowed customers to book properties direct with the owner through an online reservation system.
The two companies merged in 2010 to become one - Stilwell’s Cottages Direct, which still offers a paper Directory as well as a state of the art website and online booking facility.
The company is owned by Wyndham Vacation Rentals (UK) Ltd
