Cottage Owner Meeting 2015

Written by Natalie Barker on

On Sunday 14th June we held our first ever owners meeting at the Old Dungeon Ghyll Hotel at the head of Langdale valley. 

The event gave our owners chance to meet with the whole team in an informal setting to discuss their cottages or simply catch up and enjoy a chat. It also gave each owner the chance to meet some of our other clients, some of whom have cottages that are near neighbours. Because of the nature of the business many owners can go years without crossing paths with the owners of other properties as their weeks of use may not correspond with their neighbours.

At The Good Life Cottage Company all of our owners sign the same contract with us and receive the same level of service from our office so we don’t have any worries when it comes to putting them all in the same room (no skeletons that we don’t want the others to know about). The morning passed with some great discussions about the future of Lake District self-catering, trends in letting, quality assessments and some of the more weird and wonderful guests e ach has had over the years (99% of our guests are fabulous and very normal people… but the 1% make for more interesting stories).

We’ve come back to the office this week with a whole host of suggestions and ideas to work with. All in all a very enjoyable and worthwhile event (not sure why we’ve never done it before). We’d like to thank all our fantastic owners who attended and also a big ‘Thank You’ to the staff at the Old Dungeon Ghyll who kept us well supplied with tea and cake throughout the morning.

We’re already looking forward to doing it again in 2016!
