Select Cottages is a small family run business started by myself, Greg, in the late 1980’s, when I bought and converted firstly the cottages in France, followed by those in the Lake District. Here we are in 2013 celebrating our 25th year, which I find hard to believe!
A bit about myself: I was born in New Zealand and am a passionate supporter of the All Blacks. I lived in England for many years from secondary school age, and since leaving university have lived in Surrey, Cumbria (at Bridge End Farm for 8 years) and Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. I am married to Zarina and we held our wedding in glorious sunshine at La Garenne in Brittany. I am delighted that my daughter Natasha is now helping me with the business, especially with the IT side of things!
Although no longer living at Bridge End Farm, I visit on a regular basis to ensure that everything is running smoothly and that we are doing everything possible to maintain our high standards and make your holiday most enjoyable. Indeed you may bump into us on holiday ourselves since we always take our holidays both in the Lake District and France, spending our time either out on the fells, strolling along beside the River Blavet or perusing the French marchés!
If you are looking for a special place for your holiday, then we look forward to helping you with your holiday plans.
