Quality & Grading

At Welcome Cottages, we do our utmost to help you find your perfect holiday property. How do we do it? Well, besides offering great value, our dedicated team of 40 regional managers personally inspect every cottage in England using Visit England’s grading scheme - the official tourist board of England. Naturally, cottages in Scotland, Wales and Ireland are rigorously graded to the same standards too.

How the grading system works...

All properties in the Welcome Cottages collection are rated on a scale of 2 to 5 stars so at a glance you know what to expect. The more stars the higher the quality and the greater the range of facilities and service provided. To achieve higher star ratings, an increasing level of facilities and services are offered. A quality score is awarded for every aspect of the layout and design of the property, the ease of use of all the appliances, the comfort of the beds, the range and quality of kitchen equipment and, most importantly, the cleanliness.

Extremely clean, comfortable, roomy and the thoughtful touches really helped - milk in the fridge and chocolate biscuits to welcome us! The toys and kids' DVDs were great too. I really loved the layout of the house – I would come again in a heartbeat. Kids loved it too.

W42841 – Cairnton Farm Cottages (The Byre) – 18/12/2012
Very nicely finished property, light and airy but also cosy. Good views all around and quiet location. Loads to do locally without driving too far.

W8816 – Glan Afon Cottage – 07/05/2013
Nice location and very secluded. The kitchen and garden were lovely, and the conservatory was very nice to sit in. Getting out and about was easy and the location central to where we wanted to be.
