WHY JOIN DYFI COTTAGES AND ABERDOVEY HOLIDAYS?

Property owners often approach us to request a listing onto the websites. The reason is simple, due to the high standard of properties on our sites, we have a very high level of repeat guests who often return to sample different cottages. Our commission levels are much lower than other agencies, and because guests trust the high standards, our occupancy for this area is high. We are always looking for new owners who share our enthusiasm for promoting wonderful, stylish, well-kept properties in beautiful unspoilt locations in and around Aberdyfi.

Both our websites (Dyfi Cottages and Aberdovey Holidays) are designed to cover a particular holiday geographical area. We specialise in having lovely big quality photographs and informative text, to allow guests to choose exactly the right property for them. We are full-service agents, which we believe gives guests an efficient service and consistent experience, and relieves the property owner of the considerable administrative burden of dealing with bookings and payment collection.

FAQWhat does it cost to advertise on your websites?

There is no charge to be featured on any of the websites. We take a competitive commission from guest payments (we discuss this directly with you when we know more about your property). If we do select your property to be on our websites, we don't charge you anything for the considerable set-up costs, which are:

  • A visit from us
  • A photographic shoot by a professional photographer
  • The design of your web page by our website designer
  • Bespoke web site text
  • Search engine optimisation
  • Set up and integration with our full online booking system
 
What do I need to do if I want to join your websites?

Please email some interior, exterior and location photographs of your property to paul@dyfi-cottages.co.uk along with a brief explanation and your contact details.

I'm doing up a cottage with a view to renting it out as a holiday let - can you help?
 
We are really happy to give general advice in advance - do call! However, we can't make a final decision about a property until it is completely ready.

Is my property suitable for your websites?
 
We are looking for special properties in special locations in and around Aberdyfi. If you think your properly fits that criteria, we would be very interested in seeing some photographs, or speaking to you.

What does 'special' mean?
 
Special doesn't have to mean luxurious (although comfort and cleanliness are crucial), but it does mean that there is something beautiful, special or unique about the property.

Do you ask for exclusivity?
 
Yes, except in exceptional circumstances. Please call us if you wish to discuss.

What we do.
 
Monthly direct to bank payments (normally BACS), with email statements. We can provide you with a complete management and call out service, as well as provide all the bedding, towels and bath mats needed for your property (at extra cost).
 
You will have a complete online service, including a dedicated login for you to access the availability calendar. You will also be able to view arrivals and departures at the click of a button. We can even enable our system to provide booking information directly to your housekeeper via email!
 
Your property will be marketed through our websites and also linked to affiliated websites, Dyfi Cottages and Aberdovey Holidays giving you a greater web presence.

All we ask is that your property is graded by 'Visit Wales' and that you have all the relevant safety certificates in place. We will, of course, help you throughout the whole process should you need it.
