A bit of history

Sixteen years ago a chance conversation with a neighbour led to the birth of what is now Cumbria’s largest independent holiday cottage letting agency: Sally’s Cottages.  The neighbour had a cottage and was looking for a tenant.  The problem was, nobody wanted a long let.  So Sally (that’s me!) suggested that she could take it on and let it out to guests who would like a holiday in the Lake District.

This was at the dawn of the internet (can you even remember those days!)  Sally was one of the first people in Cumbria to create a website for her cottage and pretty soon it was let every week.  And it was in a small village (called Eskdale) which has a thriving community where everyone talks to everyone and everyone notices everything.  And what they noticed was that Sally was totally committed and so it wasn’t long before they asked her to take their holiday cottages on too.  

This total commitment is apparent throughout Sally’s Cottages.  Just read the reviews on our website or on Google and you’ll see it’s true.  We love what we do, and we love Cumbria and the Lake District.  We especially love nosing around all the cottages we let.  We have luxury cottages, budget cottages, colourful cottages, understated cottages, dog-friendly cottages, pet-free cottages, and each of us who works here has a different shortlist of favourites.  

So pick up the phone or drop us an email.  We love to chat.  Olivia or Sally's your girl and Mike’s your man – we will be the ones to come out and see you in the first instance.
