We don’t need to tell you how beautiful the Lake District is, we’re confident that, like us, you enjoy the lakes and see the huge potential a Lake District Cottage offers to holidaymakers. We are so proud of what we have achieved over the last ten years, we have a fantastic range of properties to let for holidays across the Lake District and Cumbria, and we are enthusiastic to add your property to our portfolio.
With over 25 years’ experience in the business, we are extremely passionate about promoting our beautiful county and its self-catering cottages. We have gone from strength-to-strength over the last few years and we now have an amazing range of cottages to offer our holidaymakers. Whether you own an apartment, boathouse or cottage, we want to hear from you. Being both a family run business and cottage owners ourselves, we know what owners want, and feel we have the experience, the knowledge and the desire to provide the best personal service any letting agent can offer.
We take online reservations 24-hours a day, 365-days a year - ensuring you never lose a booking, even when the offices are closed. We also provide an out of hours phone service for our holidaymakers, in case of any emergencies that may arise, giving you peace of mind. Whilst our offices are based in Cumbria, we do have a large number of cottages throughout the UK. Many of our existing owners had cottages elsewhere and found the service we provide was far superior to many local agencies and approached us to market their other cottages, we have accommodated these owners by adding additional areas to our website and these cottages are now receiving a strong level of bookings from us.
One of our most important and crucial guarantees to our owners is the promise of excellent communication and a personal service.
We, as cottage owners ourselves, understand how important your holiday property is to you. Whether you have made a property investment as a way of making an extra income, or your property is your own holiday cottage and you want to fill the empty weeks, all our owners are important to us and you will each receive the upmost personal service. We enjoy getting to know our owners and feel we establish great business relationships as well as long friendships.
We look forward to discussing your property so we can advise on our services, the suitability and letting potential of the property. We will discuss a range of things from the furnishings and health and safety to a suggested price band. If your property is within Cumbria and surrounding area we can arrange to meet you there to go through everything.
With over 25 years’ experience in holiday letting, we have a great understanding of what holidaymakers really want and expect from their self-catering holiday. We pride ourselves on the fact that we have a fantastic range of properties offering a variety of different services and qualities. We cater for parties of one to 20 and for all budgets too.
The area and location of the property are the most important factors to holidaymakers, secondly would be its grading and then price.
Holidaymakers are becoming more and more discerning each year and their expectations of the standards of furniture, decor and equipment are constantly increasing.
A welcome pack of locally sourced treats or a tray laid out for afternoon tea is a lovely surprise, or even a personal welcome from you. As long as the property is immaculately clean and tidy, well equipped, heating is appropriate to the time of year and the directions and key collection details are clear, your guests can then sit back, relax and enjoy their holiday.
We encourage the decor and furnishings to be in kept with the age and character of the property.
We have an ever growing advertising and marketing budget which we are increasing as we take on more cottages.
We have very active Facebook and Twitter accounts with over 90,000 and 5,000 followers respectively and regularly feature new properties, local events, news and articles we think will interest our followers.
We send weekly email newsletters and alerts direct to our database of over 75,000 holidaymakers with updates on special offers and new properties. We aim to give your property as much exposure as possible which will inevitably result in bookings and increased occupancy.
Our market research is continuously updated specifically targeted at increasing bookings all year round, both regionally to holidaymakers currently on holiday and nationally to prospective customers.
We also market our cottages on various affiliate websites, at no extra charge to owners. Contact us today to see how we can increase your bookings and maximise your revenue.
