About XE Website Solutions Ltd


Xe Website Solutions Ltd is a family run company based in the county of Essex.  We began operating in the year 2000 as website developers. One of our early sites was countrycottagesonline.com. As this grew, it took up much more time and has become our main concern. The Country Cottages Online sites are constantly being developed and expanded to provide improved user experience and advertiser success.

Although often challenging, we enjoy what we do, and have become experts in the area of self-catering accommodation.

Our philosophy

We aim to bring as many eyes to cottage adverts as possible. The holiday letting market is highly competitive and we try to adapt to changing times. Fortunately, our clients, the holiday property owners, are very helpful and often suggest new ways to present information or do things. We like to listen and the owners are at the sharp end of the business.

The growth of Social Media

Ever increasing numbers of people use social media on a daily basis. We promote Country Cottages on social media, especially Facebook. Any members of Country Cottages Online are welcome to send us text for Facebook posts that we will happly post to promote their property. We also share our client's posts and retweet snippets on request.


A frequently asked question

People often ask why there are two Country Cottages websites. We began with countrycottagesonline.com and developed the second version to deal with holiday rentals abroad and extend the range of key phrases that holiday cottages are found by. There are specialist areas in both sites. The orginal emphasises pet-friendly accommodation, whereas countrycottagesonline.net focusses on different terms.  It makes sense to extend the key word coverage to obtain the best possible results for our clients.


Where are we based?

The business orginally started in Essex. The main functions of the business moved to an office in Tring, Hertfordshire, in 2011.
