A Family Business

Shirley, Stewart and family set up The Melrose Directory to provide a simple, friendly, family run cottage rental business to connect property owners with holiday makers, at a low annual cost.

With decades of experience in the hospitality industry, both as hoteliers and holiday cottage owners and occasionally holiday makers, Shirley and Stewart had become dissatisfied with the approach of some of the more corporate accommodation websites – a view they knew was shared by many others.

Sensing an opportunity the Melrose Directory is intended to provide a vastly improved service to both property owners and holiday makers – just please bear with us as we grow and develop.
