Vacation Rentals UK has further expanded its brand portfolio with the acquisition of Mulberry Cottages for an undisclosed fee.
Mulberry is the latest addition to the self-catering holiday agency’s roster, which already includes English Country Cottages, Salcombe & Dartmouth Holiday Homes, Cumbrian Cottages, Blue Chip Holidays and cottages.com.
The Mulberry team will continue to operate from its offices in Canterbury, Cheltenham and Winchester.
“We are delighted to be bringing the Mulberry Cottages business into our family of brands,” said Allan Lambert, managing director property and portfolio at Vacation Rentals UK.
“As a company we are looking to expand both organically and through the acquisition of great businesses like Mulberry. We look forward to working with the team to help the Mulberry business reach new audiences.”
Mulberry Cottages founder Sarah Wood added: “This is a great move for the business, which will benefit from new distribution channels and technology available through Vacation Rentals UK.
“I am sure the team will continue to deliver great service and grow under its new ownership.”
Boutique self-catering lettings agency Mulberr, founded in 2006, represents more than 600 properties situated mostly across Southern England.
Its properties range from country houses and cottages to beachside retreats and city centre apartments.
Vacation Rentals UK is part of European Vacations Rentals, which in turns owns the Landal GreenParks, Hoseasons, Novasol and James Villas brands.
