Lake District holiday letting made easy

If you're already letting and just want some extra bookings from another website listing - that's fine!

If it's a full property management service you're after then we can do that too.

Cleaning

We do more than 'sourcing you a cleaner'. We employ or own and ensure they meet our rigorous property care standards. Area managers also check up on the house on a regular basis.

Maintenance & gardening

Sweeping chimneys, cutting grass and servicing boilers are all simple maintenance jobs that need to be arranged and completed. Even down to changing the batteries in the TV remote.

Linen & laundry

Keeping sheets crisp and clean is a vital part of holiday home management. We take care of this too.

Welcome packs

You only get one chance at a first impression - we will supply, pack and deliver handmade hampers which contain a variety of locally sourced and artisan products that will help guests feel at home from the moment they walk through the door.

Advertising & Bookings

We market your property extensively. We manage your availability across a huge number of advertising platforms to get you maximum exposure and bookings.

Guest meet & greet

For some properties, it can make sense to meet them when they arrive and show them around. If there are complicated hot tubs, saunas or hi-tech heating systems to master, nothing beats the personal service of a Finest Retreats expert to give them the first tour.

Key holding

For guests who are out of town, we can hold a spare set of keys for emergencies, if holidaymakers are locked out and if trades ever need access.

Inventory checks

Regular inventory checks to ensure nothing is missing. If we do find items broken or having gone AWOL, we will re-stock them on your behalf.

Free professional photography

We only use full-time professional photographers with experience in holiday let staging and photography. It's vital to showcase your home to the highest standard.

Paying bills

Finest Retreats can pay any utilities and maintenance bills directly - you'll see the separate entries on each monthly payment run.

Putting our owners first

We set ourselves apart from the rest:

  • Unlimited owner bookings

  • Security deposits taken on all bookings

  • Owner payments made 6 weeks before holiday date

  • Your own bespoke website, e.g. YourCottageName.com

  • Personal service from a local account manager

  • Arrange fire risk assessments, gas checks, PAT testing, access statements etc.

Finest Retreats specialise in the marketing and management of luxury properties across the Lake District. We promise you a personal and friendly service from a local team.
