What to do on your Cumbria holiday cottage holiday

Cumbria is the perfect destination if you’re looking for adventure. Home to some of England’s largest peaks, including the towering Scafell Pike, it’s the place to go if you enjoy hiking or rock climbing. Whether you’re an expert mountaineer or an amateur fell walker, there are lots of holiday cottages in Cumbria that are perfectly placed for exploring those tall peaks and rugged uplands.

As well as its amazing natural landscapes, (and we haven’t even mentioned the lakes yet!), Cumbria boasts some spectacular wildlife. With six nature reserves in total, the county is home to some iconic species, including red squirrels, roe deer and even Ospreys, which migrate year on year all the way from Africa.

Cumbria isn’t all rolling hills and remote peaks, and the county is dotted with lots of picturesque towns and villages. Penrith, for example, is one of the large towns, easily reached by rail or road, and bustling with activity. Carlisle, the county town, is well worth a visit, boasting fascinating historic landmarks such as Carlisle Castle.

Take control of your next holiday and go self-catering with Cumbria holiday cottages. With pet friendly options, cottages with swimming pools and modern spacious lodges available, you’re bound to find your next amazing home from home in no time.

Michaela - verified booking

"While we enjoyed our stay & made the best of our time........The macorator in the en suite goes off during all hours of the night & is very loud!Advertises free WiFi, your device will load the WiFi symbol but it does not work (didn’t for us!) Advertises bathrobes supplied, we didn’t get any! All the bits of hair/ fluff/ sand etc had been swept under the tables! Beware if taking your dog it does not state online they are not allowed in the carpeted rooms which only leaves the kitchen, entrance hall & conservatory which was too hot as we had fab weather & I imagine in winter it would be the opposite so not a safe option & on the back of the house so unless we sat in the hall or kitchen our pooch was alone!!!Our pooch is part of the family would not have booked here if this had been made clear online!!!Local bar is about a mile away & up quite a steep climb, nearest shops are in Maryport 3.5 miles away. Sky advertised but does not work so not sure what the honesty box for sky sports is all about! Misleading as I / we/ you book on the information supplied, when I phoned to book they even confirmed sky sports worked & you are asked to contribute £ in the honesty box. I don’t usually leave reviews but it’s unfair to advertise aspects which are not available or included especially re the pet. We would not return"

"We had a lovely holiday at S18716, celebrating some family birthdays with a family party of 13, ages ranging from 4 - 80 years. The house was lovely and comfortable, the views were great, and the garden was good, especially for the children who loved playing on the play frame. We spent a lot of time sitting in the conservatory, which was a nice space to be in.The main issues with the house were the low ceiling going up to the attic - we had a few bumped heads until we stuck our own warning note on it. Also the floor level windows in the attic were worrisome with children around. It was very hot during our stay but we were generally reluctant to open the windows up there, making it a bit uncomfortable at times. It was good to have a large dining table to sit everyone round, but it was a bit too big; taking up the entire room and you would never utilise the space in the middle of the table because you can't reach it! Finally (and probably starting to be a bit nitpicking) the Aga meant the kitchen was very hot and uncomfortable (but the weather was very hot when we were there) we had some chocolates that had to be put in the fridge as they were melting, but the fridge itself wasn't very cold, which is an issue that may need to be addressed."

"I have stayed at this cottage on a number of occasions over the last 3/4 years. It is a fantastic place, ideally located for a relaxing break. However, it is in need of some ongoing maintenance. In the front bedroom/ bathroom alone the following needs attention - the shelf above the sink is falling off, the light fitting above the sink has a bulb cover missing, the toilet roll holder/ towel holder both require fixing back to the wall. the shelf in the bedroom itself is leaning down at a precarious angle. In the kitchen there was a ceiling light out and the magnetic knife holder is loose. In the main seating area the front cover of a double electic socket was loose, It could also do with a review of the crockery (some of it is chipped) and although knives, forks etc are plenfiful some other kitchen equipment ie, weighing scales, potato masher etc would be useful and other things like the large frying pan need replacing altogether as you can't get it clean. I appreciate that these are all minor things but sorted out the accommodation I feel would definitely be worthy of a higher rating"

"S84529 was the perfect house in every way. The views are absolutely stunning and the house is equipped with everything you could possibly need. The garden is fully enclosed once the driveway gates are closed so it was ideal for the 2 wee dogs. The weather was awesome the week we were there in May so we utilised the very comfy reclining outdoor chairs. There’s also a nice wee BBQ. The conservatory is a lovely place to sit and read or just chill out. The showers are awesome, really powerful with endless hot water. Everything about this house is great! For us, as we like to go shopping and explore, the location wasn’t the best. Maryport and Allonby (the nearest towns) don’t have a lot to offer, though Cockermouth is really lovely and worth a visit (we went twice). But if you just want to chill, relax, walk, paint, read or just enjoy chillaxing with family, then this is absolutely the perfect house. The pub is in walking distance, it’s about a mile, and we had really fab food there and although it’s a real ‘local’, the staff were friendly and the sevice and food couldn’t be faulted!"

DOROTHY - verified booking

"This was an excellent place to stay. Local amenities were brilliant, with the local pub about 100 yards from the front door where excellent food was served every day. Add to that a local brewery, cafes that served great food making it an ideal stay. The amenities in the cottage were great and the cleanliness first class. The only reason we have rated 9 for the first question is that the storage of clothes in the bedrooms is poor, however, having said that I'm not sure how that could be rectified as the space has been taken up providing 9th rooms with shower and toilet facilities which was really good. Access to Windemere was close within 8 miles an travelling around was easy. This was a great stay and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the South Lakes"
