Sally’s Cottages is an award-winning, family-run holiday cottage letting agency in Keswick. Started by Sally Fielding with just one holiday cottage in Eskdale and £1,000 in the bank, we now have over 500 self-catering cottages across the Lake District and Cumbria. We are one of only a few remaining independent agencies in the Lake District and, as a result, are able to offer a personal service to our guests whilst ensuring the highest standards in our cottages.
When you are booking your holiday, we know what’s important:
- We want it to be as easy and quick as possible for you to find and book your ideal cottage.
- We pride ourselves on our friendly, personal service and our team is always approachable for any form of help or advice. Our office is open from 8.30am to 9pm, 7 days a week, to ensure we are there to help you when you need us.
- We have an extensive knowledge of the cottages we let and the Lake District as an area, so can offer valuable and personal advice for your stay.
- We understand that you may want to bring your pet on holiday with you and we have over 290 pet friendly holiday cottages in the Lake District.
Sally’s Cottages has received local and national recognition for excellence with prestigious awards including the Forward Ladies Awards, the British Travel Awards, and the Cumbrian Family Business Awards.
When you stay with Sally’s Cottages you can be sure that you are also supporting the local community. We have a staff of 25 plus a team of over 100 self-employed workers including cleaners, handymen and photographers. We also support local businesses by participating in fundraising events and partnering with groups such as the Keswick Film Festival and Keswick Museum. In spring 2018 we were proud to donate over £500 to a scheme rebuilding the flood-hit Threlkeld to Keswick Railway Path. Our belief is that, by supporting the local economy, we make the Lake District a better place both for visitors and residents.
Each month we run a holiday giveaway on our Facebook page and we post daily cottage and Lake District inspiration. We also have regular voucher giveaways on our Instagram page and in 2019 launched a Visitor Offer scheme where our guests have access to discounts at the best local attractions.
Sally is still fully involved in the business and can often be seen celebrating the Lake District’s beauty, either by moving her office to the top of Blencathra or by relaxing on a floating bed on Derwentwater!
