    After previous poor experiences with other letting agencies we found letting our apartment with Cumbrian Cottage Holidays was really easy.  Their requirements were straight forward, Gail was super helpful and it is so nice to have someone familiar on the end of the phone and not an endless automated menu.  Our property was listed quickly and we had our first booking straight away!

    Clarie, Henry’s Apartment

    This is my first time owning a lodge and using it as a holiday let and Cumbrian Cottage Holidays have been excellent in advising how to make the lodge comfortable and welcoming for guests. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience and made the process very easy for me which has been especially important with me not being locally based. They have done a fantastic good job in managing the lodge which is always impeccably clean and welcoming, ready for the next guests to arrive and enjoy.

    Bren, Green Vale Lodge

    David and Gail offer both a professional but personable service. They have a vast wealth of knowledge in the tourism industry and know what’s best for your property including pricing structures and advertising.

    Toni, Sledbank Cottage in the Hill

    I have been letting my house in the Lake District out for over 20 years and have used various agencies to help with bookings and maintenance of the house.  I switched agencies last year from one of the national agencies to Cumbrian Cottage Holidays and I have found their service far superior in every way. The agency is local and independently owned, the owners have decades of experience in the holiday let industry and have a fantastic team and this has proved invaluable.  I would highly recommend CCH.

    Joanne, Little Parrock

    I think Cumbrian Cottage Holidays has been fantastic.  Gail and David are very knowledgeable and friendly.  They’ve always been helpful and supportive, giving advice and quick to answer queries.  I would whole heartedly recommend them to other owners.

    Thank you for your interest in Cumbrian Cottage Holidays to market your holiday cottage.


    You may recognise us, David and Julia Hogarth, we have a wealth of experience in the holiday   letting market having successfully built from scratch and sold 2 agencies previously, Cumbrian Cottages and Lakes Cottage Holidays.

    Many of our previous owners we are now pleased to call friends, we are aware from conversations with them and through letting our own cottages there is no longer a personal touch as all the local agencies are now part of much bigger groups with head offices elsewhere.

    David and Gail

    Gail has worked with us for 30 years helping build up our previous agencies and in her previous role looked after our owners and was always the first point of contact ensuring she had a knowledge of any issues.  Our owners were always confident they were in ‘good hands’ when dealing with her.

    We have all lived in Cumbria and brought our families up here, running successful holiday letting agencies.  We are extremely knowledgeable about the whole of Cumbria and the Lake District with over 100 years experience between us and we know what owners and holidaymakers are looking for, ‘a  personal touch’ is high on everyone’s list along with advice on how to get the best out of their investment or holiday, we are happy to answer any questions you may have.

    Being very hands on you are guaranteed to get to know us and we look forward to being able to call you our friend very soon as we work together to maximise the potential of your holiday cottage.
