One of the Original Cottages Family

We are proud at Powells Cottage Holidays to be one of a small group of locally focused brands owned by The Original Cottage Company Limited. The company, started by the Ellis family, with just a handful of beautiful properties in the 1990s and a clear vision meant that the company soon outgrew the family home in Norfolk. Original Cottages now draws together the holiday homes from our family of 25 local brands in Wales and England.

Experts in their area, their in-depth knowledge and on-the-ground availability is invaluable to ensuring we can offer you the best cottage holidays around.

From the golden shores of Cardigan Bay to the breathtaking Lake District, you'll find more than 5,000 holiday homes in hundreds of idyllic destinations to choose from.
