Holiday letting guide

Why holiday let with Classic Cottages

We may be new to the area, but we’re not new to the world of holiday cottages and our Area Manager, Amanda, has years of experience with holiday letting in Suffolk. 

Established in 1977, we have worked hard to become the holiday cottage specialists we are today, which means we are perfectly placed to put your holiday cottage in Suffolk in front of the right people. 

As a family-run letting agent that’s been named a Which? Recommended Provider three years running, our priorities are in people, not just our growing property portfolio. This is reflected in the positive feedback left by our loyal customers, as well as the strong relationships we have with our owners. 

We understand that we’re not just providing guests with a cabin in the woods or a dog-friendly cottage, we’re providing a holiday and everything that comes with it. It’s our agency expertise that keeps people returning as they know we are always here whether they need help finding the perfect cottage or somewhere amazing to visit in the area.


Your own dedicated Area Manager

To help you navigate the exciting waters of letting self-catering cottages in Norfolk, our amazing Area Manager Amanda is on hand to help you every step of the way, alongside our regional team of in-house specialists.

Amanda has lived and worked under the beautiful, big skies of Norfolk for more than 20 years. She loves exploring the stunning landscapes and coastline with her husband and dogs, Bear and Leon. 

Before joining Classic Cottages, Amanda enjoyed 25 years in customer-facing roles, from property management positions in the buoyant Norfolk property market to helping new owners find their perfect holiday home. She really enjoys guiding owners through the process of letting their Norfolk and Suffolk properties, whether they are amongst the many coastal villages with their dog-friendly beaches and beautiful sunsets or small towns with boutique shops and fine eateries.

With the Norfolk Coast National Landscape, dog-friendly beaches, RSPB reserves, country estates and world-famous wetlands, Norfolk and Suffolk are fabulous holiday destinations and the perfect location for your holiday home.



Why choose Suffolk for holiday letting?

Holidays in Suffolk boast something for everyone, making them popular with families and couples alike. With the sprawling coast promising beach days and cliff walks aplenty and the rolling countryside beckoning for cycle rides galore, Suffolk is a superb destination for those who love the great outdoors. The beautiful setting found in Suffolk also lends itself to dog-friendly holidays, with the breathtaking walks forming the base of a dreamy stay with the dog.

Suffolk is known for its rich history and incredible market towns, from Bury St Edmonds, with its ancient abbey and pretty gardens, to the incredible Suffolk Wool Towns, which promise history around every cobbled corner. Famed for its food, Suffolk also attracts foodies from all over the UK. From Michelin starred restaurants to warm and welcoming village pubs, every taste and fancy is catered for here, cementing Suffolk’s reputation as the ‘Foodie County’.

With so much to see and do across Suffolk, people are eager to find the perfect holiday home for their stay, whether they’re planning a coastal escape or a woodland getaway.


What should I buy in Suffolk?

Lined with over 50 miles of glorious ocean, coastal cottages are popular in Suffolk, with the likes of Thorpeness, Aldeburgh, and Southwold firm favourites with visitors. Self-catering holiday cottages within the Suffolk and Essex Coast and Heath National Landscape (formerly known as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) are popular for year-round breaks, with the beautiful landscapes enticing visitors from all over the UK to come and soak up the fresh air and stunning heather-topped vistas.

When it comes to the properties themselves, holiday cottages with hot tubs are always popular and lend themselves perfectly for romantic getaways. Holiday homes with large gardens also do well, especially when they are dog-friendly – perfect for a big family holiday! From week-long respites to short breaks, and cosy cottages to quirky cabins, we are here to help you get the most out of your beautiful property. We can offer advice on a number of topics, including furnishings, legislation, and pricing, providing you with everything you need to get your Suffolk holiday home in front of the right people.


Live control of your account

We know how important access to information is, which is why we provide owner accounts to give you immediate access to live availability, questionnaires, and finances. You can also amend any information whenever you need to, giving you full control and peace of mind. We make sure that our holiday letting fees are transparent and simple, so you know what you're getting and when.

Marketing campaigns tailored to letting your property

With an in-house team of specialists, we can put your property in front of the right people at the right time through a mix of SEO, PPC, email marketing and social media campaigns that increase online visibility, giving you access to our wide base of new and returning customers. We also utilise copywriting, photography and web design to ensure every point of the user journey is professional and informative. We have expanded into many areas across the UK, with each new venture maintaining strong retention rates for both owners and guests.

We’d love the chance to introduce ourselves in person as we take on the exciting role of holiday letting agents in Suffolk. We can visit your property to give a free appraisal, or we can simply answer any questions you have, whatever stage of the journey you’re at.
