Owners of Chimney Gill Holiday Cottage, based at Sebergham are branching out and launching a new side to their business named ‘Chimney Gill Cottage Management Services’; which provides housekeeping and management services to other local holiday cottage owners in the North of Cumbria from across Eden to Keswick and Cockermouth.
Since running a holiday cottage, husband and wife duo, Tracey and Graham Wetherell have gained a vast amount of experience and have, over the years mastered the skills needed to successfully manage a holiday cottage.
Chimney Gill Holiday Cottage, which offers accommodation for up to 12 people, was launched in 2012 after the couple decided to renovate some old buildings on their farm. The self-funded project took six months to complete and since have had hundreds of visitors from as far away as Australia stay with them. The cottage not only provided the farm with an additional source of income, but gave Tracey an exciting new project to focus on; as well as being a farmer’s wife.
Now with a grown-up family the couple are looking to grow their business further. With an increasing occupancy of up to 75% for the cottage and consistently high ratings and reviews on Trip Advisor, Tracey and Graham are confident in sharing their expertise with other holiday cottage owners in the local area. The couple offer a range of services from booking management and guest relations, to cleaning duties, site maintenance and key holding.
Tracey from Chimney Gill Cottage Management Services explains;
“We understand from our own experience that it is not always easy or possible for holiday home owners to clean, manage and keep on top bookings, as well as finding the time to organise their own lives.We offer a reliable, first class service; one that we would expect ourselves, ensuring owners can relax knowing the job is in hand.”
Feedback from other holiday home owners and research that Tracey has undertaken has shown that it is not always easy to manage a holiday cottage, particularly if owners have full time jobs, busy lives, or if they simply want to take a break themselves. Leaving their holiday home in safe and experienced hands, or delegating some of the jobs that not everyone always has time to do, should provide a welcome relief and support to owners who are feeling the strain.
Tracey and Graham launch Chimney Gill Management Services this May in time for the busy summer season ahead.
