Holiday cottage letting company Sally’s Cottages is expanding.

The company, which opened its first office in Keswick in 2011, has opened a new office in Windermere so it can offer more to customers in the South Lakes.

Founder and owner Sally Fielding said: “We have such a fantastic relationship with owners, guests, and local businesses in the North Lakes and, although we already have a number of popular holiday cottages in the South Lakes, I hope that this new office will help us work much more closely with those in the area.”

Set up by Mrs Fielding 15 years ago in Eskdale with one holiday cottage, Sally’s Cottages has grown from a home-based business with just Sally and her husband, Rob, to employing 23 members of staff.

Mrs Fielding has also just been revealed as a finalist in the Northern Power Women Awards Outstanding Entrepreneur category for the second time. She was highly commended in 2016.
