I am struggling listing the properties I need to.  Penhill is one 'farm' divided into 5 separate cottages, one Manor House with 4 rooms (sleeping 8), and 4 other cottages each with 2 rooms (sleeping 4).  In listing each room in the Manor House, I have had to register the cost per night, but the cost per night is for the whole Manor House, not just a room.  And how do I list the other cottages?  Does each property have to be added completely as a new property?  I had shown the property as multi-lodges, but I can't list them under one umbrella.  Of course, you can rent just one cottage.  I just need a little guidance please.  Easy to list each separately, but I am unhappy with my listing of the Manor House, as I think it is misleading bookers to see a cost per night for each bedroom?

I would add all properties as separate listings. It'll save a lot of confusion. It's confusing enough that Booking.com refers to an entire property as a room.

Once you have the first property listed, you can send a message to Booking.com to ask them to set up a Group Account to include all of your properties.

Thanks so much for that advice.  So, when it asks you to list or add a 'room', (in that I have 4 rooms in one property and 5 separate properties), it is referring to the whole property?  So basically, for one cottage (with 4 rooms), I just add the type of beds I have.  Golly, it is confusing.  A great idea to request a group account once it's all set up though.  Thanks Isle of Wight

lol yes, booking.com uses "room" when they mean "property" ....

So the manor house is one "room" with 4 bedrooms

And the cottages are each one "room" but with (however many) bedrooms each

Booking.com was originally built for hotels etc where they might have 20 rooms of the same type .... now it's used by hosts with whole houses to rent out, but Booking.com prefer to confuse people rather than change wording on their website .....
