Do I need to Register?
No, you do not need to register if you just want to search. This service is free.

Do I need to log on to see the information on the database?
No, you do not need to log on.

How do I Search?
The easiest way to search is to use the
Multi-search form. To see all new listings immediately click the Seach for late availability on LateComers icon on the menu to the left or click on the area you want on the interactive map for new listings for that area.

How do I see the full information?
You will be able to see the detailed information when the summary list is opened. You do this by clicking "open" the book icon on the list.

How do I search for all the properties in a Region?
The regional text links, e.g. West Country, show all the cottages listed for that region. You can also search on maps see 
HolidaymapsGo for further details see below.

What is the purpose of the "Top Box" ?
You can also search for anything on the database either by name, by place or region or date or (cottage reference for owners) or some aspect that is important to you eg Swimming-pool, by typing your requirement in the "top" search box eg St Just, Roseland, Cornwall (or the reference say,10069 if you are an owner) date 08-Sep, or pool (you wouldn't need to type Swimming-pool in full,
further tips are shown here.) then press.

How do I use the filters and adjust the display format?
If you wish you can use filters in combination with or without the search box, (ie number sleeping, list price etc); these can be found below the white text on the front page, but this is unnecessary as most simple queries can be made using by the top box and if more elaborate queries are required by using
boolean expressions.
You can also adjust the display format, to show the detailed cottage listing with picture etc, re-setting the formatting box to "default detailed format" again this unnecessary, see below.

How do I book a property?
To book you will need to contact the owners direct. Most entries have telephone numbers, but not all have their own email addresses in their Latecomers's entry, cottages@latecomers is our email address. Please do not email Latecomers, if you do you must be prepared to pay a booking fee to Latecomers for
arranging a booking or finding you a property. First follow any link onto the owners site, Caution !. The email icon on the left hand menu is for owners to contact us.

If you are interested in Late Availability.
Click the icon on the menu to the left Seach for late availability on LateComers if you are looking for "late availability".

Where else may I find a property?
If you can't find anything on LateComers, visit the site of our sister organisation 
BeautifulCottages which lists premium cottages. The latest listings are shown by clicking on the map.

Will Latecomers find me a property to suit my requirements?
If you cannot find anything to suit, you can
add your requirements to the list of wants or fill in a booking enquiry form, but we are not an accommodation agency and when we are busy may not be able to help you. If we find you a cottage you will be expected to pay a booking fee of 20. A higher booking fee may be charged if you ask LateComers to find accommodation to suit your special requirements or make arrangements on your behalf.

How do I find the location of Properties?
The locations of LateComer's Cottages are shown on maps for each region on
HolidaymapsGo. Details including contact information is shown when you click the red dots on the map, which may represent several properties at that location. Some cottages have links to their own website.

Here is a map of the West Country as an example, click on this icon. 

How do I enter a simple link?
Fill in the
form, but only if it is to a cottage, hotel or other business with an URL, if you have a holiday requirement fill in the wants form, click on the link add details of Holiday and other Wants, below.
