About VR UK

Who we are

Vacation Rentals (UK), brings together three of the UK’s more trusted travel brands together – Hoseasons, James Villa Holidays and cottages.com - creating a wealth of opportunities for inter-brand collaboration and consistently high standards.

Formerly part of the Wyndham Worldwide family, the sale of the business to Platinum Equity, a leading global private equity firm was completed in June 2018 and marks an exciting new chapter for the business.

Our aim is to be the UK’s No1 end-to-end digital letting business for professionally managed holiday properties and for our online experiences to make holiday rental even more attractive to owners, holidaymakers, partners and media

Our brands

Our market-leading brands offer over 100 years of combined experience and thousands of fantastic holiday homes in some of the world’s most popular destinations, from villas in the US, the Caribbean and Europe, to cottages, lodges and holiday parks in the green countryside of Britain and Ireland.

These are strengthened by a suite of specialist and regional brands with an unrivaled knowledge, passion and expertise for their areas.

Our locations

We are a multi-site business, offering a national presence with specialist local insight.

In addition to offices in Exeter, Lancashire, Suffolk, Kent and Northamptonshire, we have local contact centres and property-management services throughout Cumbria, Devon, Yorkshire, Scotland and Northumberland.
