Our Story…

Cherished Holiday Homes was founded in 2012 by Lesley Ainsworth — an avid traveller who loves nothing more than getting away from it all. By building a community where owners and guests could connect with the click of a button, she’s made it easier for anyone to enjoy the pleasure of staying in, or owning, a private holiday home in the United Kingdom.


With a huge range of private holiday rentals waiting to be explored, and a whole host of holiday home advertising options at your disposal, Cherished Holiday Homes is the only way to holiday in the UK.


Lesley and the rest of our team have used years of experience, expertise, and passion to keep the costs low, and the rental options a cut above the rest.


Whether you want affordable luxury caravan hire, to browse a selection of the finest cottage rentals in the country, or to take a look at family holiday homes, we’re always ready to make it happen.

Our Vision…

We know that when you want to book a holiday you want to enjoy every step of it; which is why we’re committed to remaining the home of UK holiday rentals.


You’ll find lodges, chalets, holiday apartments and more right across our site, and we’re making new and exciting additions all the time.


We pride ourselves on always going one step further than anyone else, and you can tell from our reviews it’s an approach that really does work.

Our vision is to connect every holiday homeowner with a never-ending queue of guests who are ready and waiting to discover their new home away from home. With annual advertising at only £30, you’ll have everything you need to introduce the whole of the UK to your pride and joy.

We’re passionate about we do, we love every aspect of self-catering holidays, and we’re also proud to be a family business. That means we care about your success as if it were our own, and never stop searching for ways to take your property to the masses.

Whether you’re staying, letting, or a little bit of both; we can’t wait for you to join us here at Cherished Holiday Homes.
