Holiday Cottages Cumbria is owned, managed, and run by Simon Cleasby with the help of a team of hard working housekeepers, maintenance staff and a top quality laundry company.
Simon is a very knowledgeable local Cumbrian (formerly Westmorland) with a huge passion for the Lake District and Cumbria. Simon traveled and worked his way around the different continents for a few years before coming back to live in the South Lakes in 2002 and is keen to share his knowledge of this wonderful local area. He takes great pride in offering a quality of service rarely found these days.
Simon has put together several large folders for each cottage containing many of his favourite walks and drives around the Lake District. He’s also included details of many of the great tourist attractions found throughout Cumbria as well as details of some of his favourite places to eat, drink and buy great local produce.
We are very passionate about our local Lakeland produce and we buy the majority of our fresh, seasonal produce direct from many of our wonderful local suppliers, farmers, fishermen and farm shops that we are fortunate to have in Cumbria. We’ll send you a list of our favourites before the start of your holiday.
