Holiday Cottages in the Lake District

It’s hard to do the Lake District justice, using nothing more than words. Seeing lush green hills roll out into the distance, miles further than the eye can see. Watching the sun bounce playfully across crystal water, as the smell of dewdrops fills the air. Listening, as all around, an array of wonderful wildlife, from red squirrels to golden eagles, grey seals to red deer, wake to another beautiful morning in Cumbria, and head about their day.

Sitting atop one of the area’s majestic fells feels like sitting atop creation. Are you ready to find your new favourite place in England? Then welcome to the Lake District. One of the brightest gems in the U.K.’s crown.

Internationally recognised beauty

Not only does the Lake District welcome nearly 16 million satisfied holidaymakers every year, making it one of the most visited destinations in Britain, it’s also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Alongside the Taj Mahal, Machu Picchu, and the Great Barrier Reef, the Lake District has been officially catalogued by the United Nations as a ‘site of outstanding importance to the common heritage of humankind’.

Scenery that’s inspired our greatest writers

The Lake District’s spectacular scenery hasn’t just inspired some of the best staycations England has ever seen. It’s also given birth to some of this nation’s most incredible literature.

Beatrix Potter, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Arthur Ransome are a small sample of the many writers whose work draws from the areas of outstanding natural beauty. Ever wondered where exactly William Wordsworth ‘wandered lonely as a cloud’? It was across one of the Lake District’s stunning fells.

Wainwright’s walking routes

Perhaps the most ardent lover of the lakes was Alfred Wainwright. As a young man, A.W., as he liked to be called, fell in love with Cumbria. He found the area so stunning that after moving to Kendal, he dedicated his life to mapping it. Over the years, he produced a list of 214 ‘Wainwrights’ - the summits of what he saw as the Lake District’s true fells.

Thanks to A.W.’s incredible effort, these Wainwrights are internationally considered as one of the best collections of walking routes in the world. If you’re after a Snaptrip favourite, we recommend Helm Crag. Known locally as ‘The Lion and the Lamb’, it’s a short walk up from Grasmere with an absolutely staggering view out from the summit.

Magnificent mountains and the best walk in Britain

As you might expect, when we think of the Lake District, most of us picture bountiful bodies of water. But that’s far from everything this luxury location has to offer. Cumbria boasts the 10 tallest mountains in England (that’s right, all 10!), meaning it’s almost home to the best mountain walking routes in the country.

At 978 metres, Scafell Pike has the highest, and most famous, peak in England. With dozens of routes to the top, almost every walker can tick this magnificent mountain off their to-do list. Our top pick, however, is the walk up Helvellyn, England’s third-highest peak, and officially voted as ‘Britain’s best walk’. While relatively tricky, it serves up stunning sights of everything the lake district does best - water, wildlife, and wondrous hills.

Beautiful all year round

One of the best things about the Lake District is there isn’t a bad time to have your holidays here. It’s one of those destinations that’s stunning all year round, with every season serving up its own brand of special.

Winter is the perfect time to find someone special and book a luxury log cabin beside a frost-covered forest. Autumn attracts photographers, as the leaves begin to change and incredible new colours appear. In Spring, the Lake District national parks are abuzz with nature, while the long sunny days of Summer make the lakes ideal for watersports.

Book unique Lake District holidays

With so many incredible holidays on offer, it’s not hard to tailor your Cumbria getaway to precisely what you’re craving. From stunning rustic stone-built cottages to sleek modern cabins, whatever you’re after, we at Snaptrip will help you find the perfect place to stay.

Want your four-legged friend to join the fun? We’ll help you find the perfect pet-friendly cottage. Travelling with a special someone? Book a romantic cottage with a hot tub, or maybe cottage with an open fire. If you’re looking for a classy getaway, find a luxury cottage, an extra-large holiday home, or perhaps a property with a pool. Craving an incredible sea view? Peruse cottages on the coast, or by the beach.

Alan - verified booking

"Yew Trees is in an excellent location allowing you to walk into Winderemere and Bowness or enjoy country walks from the door. The property has a great layout with very comfortable settees and comfortable beds and an excellent on-suite shower room although I cannot say the same about the over bath shower. Thank you for the bottle of fizz which was so good I went and bought another bottle. During our stay there was a short power cut in the evening and when we went to look for the torch we found it was missing. Also found that the knives in the kitchen were so bad that they were almost dangerous to us when attempting to cut an onion. I noted in the visitors book that someone had mentioned this back in April. The equipment and layout of the kitchen was excellent but extractor fan could do with cleaning/replacing. I found that the front on the top left drawer on the chest of drawers in the twin room pulled off because it hadn't been glued on. I also noted that the light when entering the basement/Garage area was very poor at illuminating the room an as this is down a couple of steps I would suggest that it is replaced with a different bulb. On entering the property at the front door we noted that there were no coat hooks in the hallway but there were some useful seats available to sit and pull footwear on. This is a good property in an excellent location which could be made great with a few tweaks such as loosing the piano and replacing it with a bookcase or other useful piece of furniture. I would also consider turning the bathroom into another shower room but I realise some visitors particularly those the children may want a bath. The exterior of the property and grounds could do with some TLC which would also make it more attractive and safe to use. It may also encourage visitors to use the rear door into the basement/garage to bring in muddy/wet equipment where I noted there were door hooks and drying racks. On another note I would recommend the Prince of India in Winderemere if you are looking a takeaway."

"This is a very good property due to its location being in a private area midway between Windermere and Bowness making it easy to walk to either. The property is spacious with just the right amount of equipment and not a lot of clutter. However the property could be excellent with a few tweaks. The outside of the property has recently been painted and some of the paving re-grouted but there are still some lose pavers and the picnic bench needs refurbishment as it detracts from the exterior of the property. I found that rain water was spilling out over the gutter at the front door and this was due to debris at the bottom of the drain spout which was being held in place by the drain cover. Would suggest that the drain spout should be cut back 1/2 to 1 inch to allow the debris to wash out. Some shrubs at the rear are too close to the property causing the guttering to block and overflow and the subsequent waterfall being heard from the bedrooms which is unfortunate at night. The hallway is spacious with chairs and a table but could benefit from coat hooks on the wall to the right of the door instead of having to drape them over chairs. The bedrooms are very comfortable with plenty of storage space and loads of coat hangers. However the bedrooms are let down by poor curtains and curtain rails with end stops missing which means if you pull the curtains open too far they come off the track. The bathroom and on suite are excellent but both could benefit from having spare toilet roll holders to prevent space loo roll sitting on top of the toilet and possibly falling into the toilet. The fabric blind and light shade in the on suite have both become covered in mould. As there is an opaque window they could just remove the blind. The kitchen could do with a few hooks to put a towel and tea towel on."

"This is without doubt the best accommodation I have stayed at in the Lake District by some distance as well.The accommodation was spotlessly clean warm and cosy, everything you could possibly need was catered for down to some very nice touches, such as some milk in the fridge and cleaning and washing facilities provided for.The area was beautiful, absolutely stunning scenery and only short walk away down to Wastwater lake itself.The location of the accommodation was within easy travelling distance should you want to travel further afield to explore different parts of the Lakes and beyond.Quite simply a wonderful relaxing and very enjoyable week in the Lakes made all the more pleasurable because of the quality of the accommodation, the weather was even good for the most part as well.I returned home very happy with my batteries full recharged.I will certainly book this accommodation again when I am on holidays in the Lake District."

"The cottage is clean and well equipped. The shower is good as is the quality of the bedding etc. The wifi is very good. The location is very near the town centre so convenient. There is a dedicated parking spot so only useful if all 3 people travel together. However the upstairs floors creak so loudly that we were woken by anyone walking across them and this is the main reason we would not recommend it. Even my hearing impaired dad found it annoying. The double bed also creaked very loudly. This room is so narrow you have to walk sideways to get into bed. The steepness of the stairs was mentioned in the cottage info but the narrowness of the landing was not and is a hazard. There is no demarked or planted 'patio' area at the back and the front garden is by a busy road and over the road not adjacent to the river as described."

"High Hurst is a very cosy cottage attached to the main farm house but with a delightful private garden which the dogs enjoyed as much as we did!Robin made every effort to explain all of the amenities of the cottage and she is a warm and friendly hostess which enhanced the holiday experience as we felt very welcome from the moment that we arrived.A guided walk around the farm with Robin meeting all of the animals was truly special and anyone who loves animals and farming would enjoy this.The cottage is immaculately clean and tidy and there are lovely views of the garden.The surrounding hills are spectacular in their solitude and remoteness - a dive or a walk across the hills is also recommended.Coniston is only 30 minutes drive away with a good selection of shops, pubs, the lake and beautiful walks."
