Author Bio
Allison Lee first ventured into the property market with her husband several years ago. They have since bought and sold two properties to enable them to be in a position to purchase a harbour side cottage in Cumbria. With many advanced bookings and a booming UK holiday market it has been an enjoyable - and rewarding - experience.
