Kent and Sussex Cottages is one of the leading holiday cottage agencies of the south east, representing some of the best holiday cottages throughout Kent and Sussex. Starting in Cranbrook over 25 years ago, the company has an experienced team who all have a passion for living in these two diverse counties and match-making guests with their perfect holiday property. Now with over 350 properties, Kent and Sussex Cottages are the experts to talk to whether you are looking to book a holiday or considering letting your property!

Kent and Sussex Cottages has three offices in the south east; Cranbrook and most recently Canterbury plus a sister brand Best of Brighton Holiday Lettings in central Brighton.

The Brand Manager of Kent and Sussex Cottages, Angela Jackson-Grillet, said: “The organic growth of the company is down to the solid foundation of local experts, personal, honest service and continually pushing up quality standards. Canterbury is a key tourist destination for the south east with thousands of holidaymakers flocking to the town each year and a centre of commerce for the whole of east Kent. Having a presence in Canterbury will strengthen the company’s offer to holidaymakers but also means a more bespoke service to homeowners who live away from their holiday home. Sadly our local competitor Mulberry Cottages, who were in the city, has recently closed their office in Canterbury, as often happens when a smaller company is taken over. However we believe wholeheartedly in the importance of having a local presence and with offices in both Canterbury and Cranbrook and our sister brand in Brighton we are able to offer a personal hands on service for the south east.”

Kent and Sussex Cottages is part of a family of brands owned by The Original Cottage Company – the UK’s biggest independent and family-owned holiday cottage agency. When properties are let with Kent and Sussex Cottages, they appear not just on but also on the national website, This means that homeowners enjoy the unbeatable combination of national marketing power, backed by local expertise and knowledge of the area.
