Year of success

Date: Friday 8th December 2017

HOLIDAY cottage letting agency Sally’s Cottages picked up two more awards this week, crowning a successful year for the company.

The agency was awarded silver in the best UK holiday cottage booking company category in the 2017 British Travel Awards, and won the best SME growth accolade at the National Forward Ladies Awards 2017.

Sally Fielding set up the Keswick-based company 14 years ago with one holiday cottage in Eskdale and just £1,000 in the bank.

It now has more than 450 holiday cottages across the Lake District and Cumbria and has taken £76 million worth of bookings in the past year.

“It has been an excellent year for us,” said Sally, “with several awards, strong bookings, and a fantastic, expanding team.”
