Julian Cottell

Quality Services Manager

Julian has a great sense of humour and is a pleasure to work with according to his colleagues, and is often mistaken for Tom Sellick (so they say…tongue in cheek!).  He came to Heart of the Lakes over 5 years ago after a 30 year career in the hospitality industry with varying roles in Hotels, the Merchant Navy, and prior to Heart of the Lakes 20 years in the Quality Inspection Business for the Visit England Schemes.  Julian’s passion for the industry and in particular a more personal approach to customer service and quality led him to Heart of the Lakes.  Julian was asked why he never moved to The Lake District from Lancashire, his answer was that he currently spends more time in The Lake District and with Heart of the Lakes than he does at home.  When he is not out doing Quality Inspections or meeting new clients he can be found in his garden, visiting new horizons with his caravan in tow, or enjoying walking with his dogs.

When we gave Julian the choice to pick his favourite things, he answered:

Dog or Cat
Cake or Pie
Lake District or Peak District 
Red or Blue
Coffee or Tea
City or Countryside 
Winter or Summer 
Ocean or Mountains 
Beer or Wine 
TV or Book
