Warm Wellies!


We're so excited to be giving away some Warm Wellies this weekend alongside our usual Facebook cottage giveaway!

As farmers with a young family of four children, they often had to hear a lot of complaining about cold weather when the kids were helping on the farm! Having searched in vain for a solution, in 2006 the pair decided to create their own neoprene-lined welly for kids. Over 10 years later, they now also make warm wellies for adults and their boots are perfect for families who love spending time together outside, whether they're working on the farm or splashing about in puddles!

We're thrilled to be partnering with Simon and Cookie, who are amazing people - as well as running The Warm Welly Company, and bringing up four children, they have enhanced their farmland by planting 6,500 trees and 2.8km of hedges! We just love how committed they are to the great outdoors and, like us at Sally's Cottages, how much they love and value the beautiful Lake District.

This weekend, from Friday 18th to Monday 21 January 2019, we are giving away a weekend stay at Mill Cottage in the Newlands Valley and a set of Warm Wellies for the whole family! Just pop over to our Facebook page from 12pm today (18th January) and comment on one of our giveaway posts - every comment goes into the supreme hat of fabulousness, a winner will be drawn at random after 11pm on Monday, with the winner announced on Tuesday morning at 10am.
