In recent months FEDF has discussed with incoming and local firms employees how best to address their desire for better information about the accommodation supply options and what information incoming employees would like to have to hand. Research suggests they would like to have a better understanding of the market, and:
– an easy to refer to schedule of the range and types of accommodation on offer;

  • an indication of what gyms, shops, petrol filling stations and other amenities are close by;
  • doctors, dentists and clinic or hospital facilities information;
  • access to local transport and parking facilities
  •  information on education facilities(for those workers bringing families with them);

To meet these needs we have partnered with local expert agencies to provide a insight into

– rented accommodation of all types;

– hotels and guest houses including available total bed spaces;

– estate agents and property developers with homes for sale and to rent.

The hotel market offers around 1,939 bed spaces. It extends across south west Cumbria. The 4 star hotel offerings are located principally in Barrow, Newby Bridge and Grange over Sands. Independently owned three, two and one star hotels  make up most of the demand.
