Far from simply supplying the number of a cleaner or tradesman and leaving you to it, we'll give you a responsive and comprehensive service that means real peace of mind for you and your guests. Through our friendly high-street locations we offer:
Part management services
We can offer this service to owners who may either have their own caretaker or maintenance person offering you greater flexibility. We'd usually hold your keys and advise your cleaner of bookings. We can arrange other services too, and these would be charged accordingly.
"Our experience of Cumbrian Cottages has been one of partnership. After retiring, we chose Cumbrian Cottages to take over the marketing and management of our property. Our experience has been hassle free, helped by the excellent local friendly staff. The highly visible website and advertising has allowed us to enjoy the benefits of a good income with little strain managing our own bookings. Maintenance matters are dealt with efficiently at sensible costs and having our own 'housekeeper' has been impressive." Croft Cottage, ref: 115121
Full management service
Here, we'll look after the practical side of letting your cottage. This could include supplying the cleaners who'll gain access to your cottage, carry out any changeover tasks and even launder the bed linen. On top of that, our full-time housekeepers will regularly visit your property and inspect the cleaning as well as the building itself. And because we take your peace of mind so seriously, we do whatever we can to encourage great relationships between owners and the caretakers who look after their properties.
We're also happy to take care of all payments, so you don't have to, and that includes paying your cleaners as well as for any incidental items like light bulbs: we'll simply charge any costs to your monthly statement. Of course we'll also deal with repairs, and make sure your property is always well looked after, even providing an out-of-hours emergency telephone number to give your guests added reassurance.
Maintenance service and property refurbishment
Our handpicked full-time maintenance team covers all aspects of work on your property and provide you and your guests a fast and efficient service. This means less hassle and lower costs than a general tradesman, plus the chance to keep your property in tip-top condition and open for bookings all year round.
We can also provide competitive estimates for special services like decorating, gardening or even renovation work, and we're happy to 'project manage' most work using our trusted local contacts from the building and skilled trades.
Here are a couple of examples of refurbishment projects we've managed for owners:
