Karen

Office Manager (Keswick)

I have worked within the company for 17 years, both on the Estate Agents and with Lakes Cottage Holidays. The role I play is varied and no two days are the same, managing the Keswick office means I can be dealing with anything from taking on new cottages, arranging cleans, sorting out maintenance issues or advising our holidaymakers where to go for afternoon tea.

I remember as a child being taken by my parents to many different areas and attractions, we would jump in the car and drive with no planned destination. Now I love to visit the Western Lake District it is as beautiful as the main tourist hubs but less frequented.

Emma

Sales and Admin Assistant (Keswick)

I started working full time at Lakes Cottage Holidays 7 years ago. Since having my daughter Isla I now work part time in our busy Keswick Office doing a range of tasks including taking bookings and arranging housekeeping.

I love taking my daughter to feed the ducks in Keswick followed by a trip on the Derwentwater launch. No matter what the weather we always have fun!

Fiona

Sales and Admin Assistant (Keswick)

I have worked for Lakes Cottage Holidays for nearly 7 years and enjoy all aspects of the job especially giving advice on where to stay in our beautiful area.

In my spare time I enjoy going for long walks in the countryside especially the Wythop Valley near where I live.

Then there is nothing better after a long walk than a visit to a local pub usually either the Coledale Inn or the Pheasant Inn to relax and take in the atmosphere.

Sharon

Sales and Admin Assistant (Keswick)

I have worked for Lakes Cottage Holidays for almost 2 years having previously worked in banking for over 20 years. I have always been involved in Customer Service and love chatting to guests and helping them arrange their holidays.

I love to go walking in the Lakes with family. We particularly enjoy a walk around Derwentwater or Bassenthwaite Lake and finish off with a scrumptious Afternoon Tea, usually at the Armathwaite Hotel.

Lorraine

Sales and Admin Assistant (Keswick)

I moved to Cumbria over 10 years ago, after holidaying here.Now I have made my life here with my family and cannot think of anywhere else to live that has stunning scenery, amazing walks and there is always something happening, such as a jazz festival, film festival, words on the water etc.

My spare time is taken up with my children and we like to go to Thirlmere and walk through the woods with our dog. We like to go out in Keswick for a meal, usually Bar Metro, which is an American Diner serving great food at reasonable prices and small portions for the little ones.
