About Us

Sally's Cottages is an award winning company that loves the Lake District and believe in sharing this love with everyone who comes and stays.

We believe in exceptional customer service, friendly and approachable staff and a commitment to the local community and economy. 

Our mission is:

  • To inspire moments of happiness in everything we do.
  • To make things as easy as possible for everyone we communicate with.

I started out by myself with just one holiday cottage way back in 2003.  Now we have over 450 cottages to let and a few more people than just me.  Here are the people you will find yourself talking to if you call the office.

Vanessa, Customer Services Administrator

Vanessa is full of life and bursting with energy! She hails from sunny South Africa but now considers herself a local having lived in the area for the past 10 years. She loves spending time wandering around the Lake District with her family and especially around Buttermere with her little grandaughter Ella Rose eating the local made delicious yummy ice cream!


Tristan, Customer Services Administrator

Tristan moved to the Lake District to enjoy the outdoors and spends most of his free time running and walking over the fells. If you want some advice on which mountains to climb and the best routes to follow, he will be happy to help!


Megan, Customer Services Administrator

Megan is a very kind and bubbly person who likes to explore the sights of the Lake District, hiking up fells and admiring the views at the summit equipped with her flask and a picnic. Megan enjoys running and paddle boarding; her ideal day is spent walking around Derwent or Crummock Water and warming up by a warm and cosy fire with her family and friends. She is always happy to help you select a cottage to suit your individual preferences and experience your dream holiday.


Sophie, Customer Services Administrator
Sophie loves working with the team and making dream holidays for all our visitors who come and stay.


Angela, Customer Services Specialist

Angela is very much a family lady.  She loves messing about playing with her kids and taking her border terrier, Alan, out and about.

Andrea, Financial Specialist
If you're looking for someone to help you find your perfect cottage, Andrea is your woman! She's a local lady who knows lots about the Lake District and Cumbria.

Becca, Office Manager
Becca is one of those people who will go above and beyond to make sure you have your perfect cottage stay.  She is friendly, fun and incredibly efficient.

Mike, Customer Services Manager
Mike's favourite thing about his role is working alongside all the different people who make Sally's Cottages what it is, whether that be owners, visitors, colleagues, cleaners, suppliers, etc (the list is endless!). Mike's best Lake District memory is sitting atop of Hardknott Pass during a temperature inversion with a layer of cloud below him and glorious blue sky and sunshine above whilst gazing at the Lake District's highest peaks popping out the top of the cloud like tropical islands in an ocean.

Olivia, New Cottages Specialist

Olivia is never happier than when she is mooching about with her dog.  She loves the fresh air and the freedom.  If you have any questions about the best walks in the Lake District, then she's the lady to ask.


Sophie, Managed Services Specialist

Sophie has a secret. She loves Christmas so much that her dream is to have a shed in the garden that can be decked out as a Christmas Grotto! She likes the sparkle, the music, the food (most definitely the food) and the sheer happiness of it all.

Sarah, Managed Services Specialist

Sarah is one of the loveliest people you'll ever speak to. She loves walking the fells, equipped only with her camera and some flapjack.


Katie, Accommodation Manager
Katie loves the outdoors, is full of energy and loves to laugh. She is always on hand to help and loves working alongside all our cottage owners!


Kim, Marketing Coordinator

Kim loves nothing more than getting out to a quiet part of the Lake District so that she can sing at the top of her voice without interruption!  She enjoys spreading the word about our lovely cottages so that more people can come and enjoy the beauty of the Lakes!


Sally, Managing Director

I set up Sally's Cottages in 2003, after a chance conversation with a neighbour gave me the opportunity to rent my very first cottage.  It's grown a bit since then but our philosophy remains the same.  We love the Lake District and we love what we do.  We hope you will too.
