Holiday Cottages In The Lake District To Rent

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.

Debora - verified booking

"The apartment was beautiful and very clean. The location was fantastic, literally 2 mins to the town and 5 mins to lake. However parking was a nightmare and if you were lucky enough to get a spot, move and it was gone. The local car park was very close but really expensive at @ £7 for a few hours. The accommodation was advertised as having parking however this was communal not specific. As a party with 2 elderly guests there was no mention of the very steep concrete steps to access the building. The apartment would be wonderful for 2 adults and 2 children but far too small for 4 adults. Because of the way the living room was set out, 4 people could not watch tv as you were sat sideways to the TV. It would have been better sited the other side of the room where the wooden cat is on a bracket? The another small chair could be fitted. The second bedroom was so small that there was not bedside table and a cupboard had been converted to house clothes, you could only access by kneeling on the bed, no good for people in their 80’s. In order for 4 to sit comfortably around the table, you had to move the table out into the living room which then blocked off the door into the hall and access to the kitchen. We are holiday home owners ourselves and all our ads state “not suitable for those with mobility problems” I don’t mean to sound negative and if we were a couple, it would have ticked every box as it is lovely, however as a group of 4 we won’t be returning sadly."

Claire - verified booking

"The location is good for Windermere, but Bowness has more attractions. Cleaning appears to be an unknown concept the house was dirty. The tooth brush glass on the sink was dirty with someone else’s tooth paste, gritty surfaces and fridge, cobwebs and dust around ceiling and lights. We moved an arm chair when looking for one of the kids toys and the area under and behind had obviously not been cleaned for a long time. The cooker however had all the settings rubbed off, so the hob you could work out but the oven was difficult to use not knowing what temperature it was at etc. The WiFi hardly works. It must be noted that the staircases in the property are steep, which would need to be considered for young children, elderly etc. The little drive although tight for a big car was a god send as we were there for Easter and there was no street parking available. With a good clean, updated kitchen appliances and a different internet provider this could be an excellent place to stay."

Mrs J.A - verified booking

"We recommend this apartment. It is well designed and thoughtfully furnished with everything that you need, and it is surprisingly spacious with ample room for wet coats and boots. It would be particularly good for two couples or older children as the two bedrooms are very private. There was a designated parking space which was big enough for our large car and the location in the heart of the village meant that we didn’t need to use it during our short break. Although I have no idea what it would be like in the middle of the summer it was extremely quiet when we were there during term time in December. We would definitely use this apartment again if we return to Grasmere."

KAREN - verified booking

"We've had a fabulous time. The cottage is well equipped and in a good location for public transport links. With local supermarket, cafes and shops there are good local amenities and with the bus stop just round the corner its easy (albeit pricey) to get around the Lakes on the bus. The cottage itself provides plenty of room with comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen, spacious dining room and sun lounge, you can really relax after a good days walking/ out. Dog friendly. This is our third year staying at S18729 and hopefully will return next year."

Mrs Diane Bastow - verified booking

"This has been by far the best holiday accommodation that we have stayed in over the many years of holidaying in the UK. We would definitely stay here again and thank you to the dedicated owners of S60458. This property is outstanding. Grasmere is a beautiful village full of quaint shops and places to eat. So convenient for exploring the whole of the Lake District. Booking our holiday was so easy (on-line). Everything taken care of and lots of information received."
