Congratulations – you’ve made the big decision to start your holiday letting journey! With lots of exciting times ahead, the next thing to decide on is how to manage your property going forwards.

This may be a daunting thought – how will you manage bookings? Where will you advertise? How much should you spend on marketing? We can help with everything from day one of your holiday letting journey. Read on to find out the benefits of working alongside Lakes Cottage Holidays…


1. Over 25 years experience

We’ve been holiday letting in the Lake District for over 25 years and know the industry inside out. We know what holidaymakers want, and we know how to achieve the booking levels our owners desire. When you let your property through us, we will use our expertise to help you make the most of your holiday let and reap the rewards.


2. We’re the local experts

All our staff members are local and know the Lake District in great detail. We’re passionate about this place we call home & love to share our in-depth knowledge of the Lakes. Knowing which areas are popular and which don’t perform as well for holiday lets, we can assist and guide our owners to make the right decisions when it comes to property locations.

3. Bespoke management service

One of the greatest benefits of letting your property through Lakes Cottage Holidays is the bespoke management service we offer. As an owner, you can be as hands-on or hands-off as you like with your property. If you already know a cleaner you’d like to use but require some help with processing their invoices, we can help! Likewise, if you’d prefer to hand over all the responsibility of caring for and managing your property to us, then our fully managed service is the one for you.

4. Competitive commission rates

We understand that one of the most important things to consider when starting off with your holiday let is knowing how much it’s going to cost you. That’s why we keep our charges simple. We have an annual fee that helps us market your property to all the right people, as well as competitive commission rates that vary depending on how often you want to use the property yourself. The more availability we get from you, the more bookings we can secure, so the lower our commission rates will be. If you’d like any more information on what our charges are, please give our team a call on 017687 74060.


5. Part of the Sykes Holiday Cottages family

Our sister company, Sykes Holiday Cottages, are behind us every step of the way to offer powerful marketing support to ensure your property is always in the spotlight. As well as being featured on the Lakes Cottage Holidays and Sykes Cottages websites, our multi-million pound marketing budget gets your property onto hundreds of partner websites too, such as AirBnb & Booking.com. With the power of Sykes behind us, we can help your holiday home reach new heights and see your bookings soar!
