Sally started with just one holiday cottage in Eskdale and just £1,000 in the bank. Sally's Cottages is now the largest independent holiday cottage agency in the Lake District and continues to be recognised for its growth and excellent customer service through a number of national and regional awards.

In 2018, Sally’s Cottages is partnering with Keswick Film Festival and Go Ape! Whinlatter, as well as sponsoring Keswick Museum’s “Herstory” exhibition celebrating women of Cumbria.

Women of Cumbria“We enjoy working with large, national companies, but it’s the excellent local groups that we really love to support,” comments Sally. “Sally’s Cottages has had a really successful year and we want to continue giving back to the community just as we have always done. It’s important that local businesses, groups and individuals work together to ensure that Cumbria and the Lake District continue to thrive.”

Thank you for another fabulous year!
