World-famous lakes, welcoming towns and a wide range of activities all help to bring this breathtaking location a year-round appeal and with it, year-round bookings. With customers booking breaks in the Lake District throughout the year, most of our owners with properties here enjoy over £19,000, with our top-earning properties averaging over £49,000 a year.
Here at Sykes we're proud of our history in the Lake District and have built on our continued success by opening an office in the centre of Windermere, providing a dedicated face-to-face service for owners in the heart of the Lake District.
So if you're seeking a local expert with all the backing of a national company, then we're the perfect choice.
Your local manager has years of experience and lots of knowledge of your property's area. They're never more than a phone call away and can offer advice on everything you need to know about holiday letting in the Lake District.
Growing up in the Lake District has given me a love of this spectacular area. Although my textile career pulled me away, the lure of Lakes has never left and I returned to Kendal and joined Sykes in June 2015. With a passion for property and interiors I've successfully renovated and rented out properties for over 15 years and running my own holiday cottage means I can help you and speak first-hand about the excellent service and booking levels achievable with Sykes.
Living in the heart of the Lake District between Ambleside and Coniston, high up on a traditional hill farm with holiday cottages, I have a great understanding of the needs of both holiday cottage owners and guests! Since working with Sykes from 2011, I have met lots of owners and worked with them to help them achieve the most from their properties, both in levels of bookings and potential earnings. With a background of working in a commercial buying environment, I always have an eye on the bigger financial picture and appreciate, whilst we all love our guests, we are looking for a reward for our hard work and commitment. Some may think that travelling around England's most beautiful national park whilst being paid is like winning the lotto but for me it's nurturing the owners and watching the bookings roll in that gives me the greatest satisfaction.
From lakeside log cabins to romantic cottage retreats and everything in between, nearly 800 property owners in the Lake District trust us to bring in more bookings, with some of them achieving over a staggering 50 per year.
Because they know we use industry-leading national marketing that will drive bookings to their property, not only in peak season but all year round.
Spacious and stately or charmingly cosy, we know how important your investment is and work hard to help you get the best out of it. Our business has grown significantly over the years but our ethos remains the same as when we first began over 25 years ago; we never forget it's your property and work closely with you to ensure high levels of customer service and satisfaction.
Pick up the phone or request one of our friendly property experts to call you back. We're on hand 7 days a week to offer you free advice on getting the best out of holiday letting. It's what we do.
