1 Waterside House, Denton MillsAward winning landlords providing top quality accommodation for Carlisle students

We are a family business established in 2001 and specialise totally in house and apartment rentals to students. We are dedicated to providing reasonably priced accommodation of a high standard for students attending Universities and Colleges in Carlisle.

We are a husband and wife team - Michael & Sylvia Marrs. Our son-in-law Huw is our general maintenance assistant, painter and decorator. We also have 2 daughters, Alison (married to Huw) and Jennifer, who help run our business.

We are fully accredited members of the National Residential Landlords Association.

NLRA Accreditation is a national scheme put in place to promote recognition of landlords who consistently demonstrate a professional standard of management. Based solely on best management practices, an NRLA Accreditation landlord certificate certifies the credibility and competency of landlords.

We have signed up to the University of Cumbria Code of Practice, and we protect our deposits through www.mydeposits.co.uk
