Holiday Cottages In The Lake District To Rent - Save up to 60%

Cottages in the Lake District

If you’re a fan of stunning scenery and like a bit of culture thrown in for good measure, then book one of our Lake District cottages for your next holiday. Whether you’re travelling with the whole clan or it’s a week away with that special someone, the Lake District is a superb destination with plenty to get up to. But don’t just take our word for it - the region has inspired artists and writers alike – perhaps the most famous of which was Beatrix Potter. Both Squirrel Nutkin and Peter Rabbit were conceived in the Lake District, inspired by its beautiful countryside and the bounty of wildlife that has made its home there.

Although the region is known as the Lake District, you might be surprised to know that there’s only one official lake there, in the form of Lake Bassenthwaite, near Cockermouth. Although the other 15 bodies of water look pretty big, they haven’t been given lake status- some of them are known as ‘waters’, such as Wastwater and Ullswater, others are known as ‘meres’, such as Windemere, and anything on the really small side is known as a ‘tarn’. However, whether they actually qualify as lakes or not, these bodies of water are big enough to offer plenty of opportunity for watersports and boating, in truly fabulous surroundings. Many of our Lake District Cottages are nearby, so pack your wetsuits!

What can I do on my holiday to the Lake District?

If you’ve booked one of our holiday cottages in the Lake District for the whole family, you’ll need to have some days out planned for the kids. The World of Beatrix Potter is a popular attraction, where children can learn about the story behind the stories. For something rooted firmly in the present, the Lakes Aquarium is a great day out, allowing your kids to get to grips with a variety of animals, from fish and birds to more exotic beasties, including marmosets and caiman.

Within our range of holiday cottages in the Lake District, you’ll find a good selection designed for couples getting away from it all. In addition to the bevy of attractions on offer, you’ll also find that the Lake District is littered with great places to eat out, from characterful pubs and inns to fine-dining establishments, for those special nights out.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In The Lake District To Rent.

- Mr Prigg, April 2018 - verified booking

"The location for us was perfect as the views from the garden and comfort of the cottage made for a very pleasant experience. The summer house in the terraced garden was an added bonus. We particularly liked the iron stove log fire with ample supply of fuel which made our stay very snug & cozy. A car is a must due to the cottage being located on a very steeep hillside. I could invisage risky conditions in the event of ice, as the road can be extremely wet after rain for a number of days as drainage is fast flowing down the steep road for couple of hundred metres until finding drains. Nonetheless with a car the location is ideal and as long as care is taken the cottage would be extremely cozy in winter. Thank you for providing your home for us to experience a lovely holiday. We would definitely like to return."

- MillyWiltshire, August 2017 - verified booking

"Myself and my husband stayed here in September 2016. It was beautiful a great location to access the lakes we visited so many that we needed another holiday, the cottage was well equipped like home from home lovely and clean and warm, we watched the birds from the kitchen in the mornings. We lit the fire in the evenings, super cosy. The bed was really comfy with lovely bedding. The garden was beautiful with far stretching views there was a Booths supermarket a 10 min drive down the road. We had excellent weather during our stay very lucky. The host Barbara was lovely and knowledgeable there were a great selection of guides in the cottage (great for lake district first timers)."

Linlyan - verified booking

"Spent an unforgettable week, starting with the lovely owners who were very welcoming and helpful, even giving us a bottle of bubbly to help us relax! The house was great, two very comfortable bedrooms with fantastic views, a comfortable sitting room with a working fireplace, logs supplied! Great kitchen and bathroom with absolutely everything thought of. The garden was very pretty with fantastic views across the valley, could see the steam train going up and down, and the sunsets! The cottage was central in a great location, good walking all around, and a short drive from lots of lovely places; we loved it all."

Lesley - verified booking

"A very quiet and peaceful unique location. No traffic noise here! Yet easy to access local walks or drive to fell walks elsewhere. The photograph of the let does not do it justice. We often sat in the private 'courtyard space ' using the garden furniture provided and ate our breakfast in the morning sunshine whilst planning our days activities. Yes the TV is somewhat dated. A full cooker would be welcome instead of microwave/hob combo. Overall very good value and a very special place to stay. We are glad we chose to stay here in this unspoilt part of the Lakes and I am sure we will return."

L_G_York - verified booking

"Started with a great welcome by the lovely owner, who gave us a full tour and explained how to use everything (where the heating controls were etc). The cottage is a lovely, homely place with enough space to have a comfortable evening in. The cottage also has a beautiful garden which has views for miles over valleys and hills. It's in a perfect location to explore all the Lakes, but especially all the South Lakes attractions with nothing more than 30mins drive away. Lovely pub only 30mins walk - well worth the walk!! Definitely want to go back!"
