‘Staycation specialists’ cash in on football fever with money off for Southgate bookings


A holiday cottage company is hoping to cash in on football fever sweeping the nation, by announcing it will deduct or refund £66 off any 2018 bookings in the name of Southgate.

Original Cottages is using the Southgate discount to play on the success of England’s 1966 team as hopes soar for a repeat of such glory some 52 years on, under the leadership of manager Gareth Southgate.

The offer applies to existing bookings as well as any new bookings made by midnight on Sunday, the last day of the 2018 World Cup.

For existing bookings made in the name of Southgate, guests will be notified of a £66 refund.

Sonia Holman, marketing director at Original Cottages, says: “As World Cup fever takes over the nation we wanted to show our support and recognise the success that Gareth Southgate has achieved with our 2018 squad so far. Plus what better way to celebrate England’s success than with a holiday on home turf.”

Original Cottages is a family owned and operated hub of 23 locally based self-catering agencies. There are 4,600+ holiday cottages, apartments and large houses to rent across England and Wales from the Lake District and Yorkshire to Cardiff, Cornwall and Kent.

Yesterday we reported that Lawrence Kenwright, boss of Signature Living hospitality group, was to gift his hotel away for free for one night should England reach World Cup victory.
