Premier Cottages offer a wide range of award winning holiday cottages for rent throughout the UK.

Quite different from a holiday cottage agency, Premier Cottages is a collection of small businesses who are passionate about providing a fantastic holiday experience to its guests and who come together to jointly market their cottages. 

Premier Cottages has won the Visit England Awards for Excellence in 10 of the last 13 years.  And its members have an unparalleled offering in terms of facilities, with nearly half of their cottages having a swimming pool on site, and a third with a hot tub.

ACT Studios: providing photography for hundreds of Premier Cottages’ members

ACT Studios has enjoyed a close working relationship with Premier Cottages for some years now, having been commissioned to photograph well in excess of 300 holiday cottages to date.

Most recently, we photographed Premier Cottages Chair, Beth Bailey’s own 5* luxury holiday cottage complex, Kernock Cottages near Saltash in South East Cornwall.

At this shoot, we delivered high resolution immersive 3D virtual tours, which allow the user to ‘walk around’ each property and explore each room in incredible detail, as well as seeing the cottages in both a ‘doll house’ view and 2D floor plan.

A passionate advocate of great photography to properly showcase a holiday cottage, Beth was especially pleased with the results, remarking:

“High quality professional photography is the single most important investment you can make in your property. 

“The biggest mistake I see owners make is to invest significantly in their beautiful property, and then try to save a few quid by doing the photos themselves “because my phone has a really good camera”. 

“Even if you have a decent “proper” camera, unless you are a professional, leave it to the professionals.  Take your own photos of beaches, gardens by all means.  But interior photography is a totally different ball game from outdoor photography.  Lighting and angles are critical, and can make the difference between a poor or indifferent shot and a great one. 

“Photos are by far the most important component of your website or Premier Cottages web pages – if the guest is not hooked in by your photos, they will not read your beautifully crafted words, or your reviews, and will not book your cottage. 

“Think of your images like a CV… a CV gets you the interview, but doesn’t guarantee you the job.  If your images are poor, they won’t bother with the rest.  Don’t let your photos undersell your cottages – it is a false economy, and will lose you bookings.”

Beth concludes “The 3D tour plus stills package offered by ACT represents fantastic value.  For less than the price of a short break, you will gain a long-lasting asset that will definitely improve your “bookability”, and that means the cost will quickly be covered.”

Because however beautiful your cottage is, without top notch professional photography, that simply won’t come across to your audience.”
