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.

About The Lake District

What our customers are saying about our holiday cottages in the lake district to rent.

  1. Confirmed Guest

    "Beautiful house, attention to detail excellent, spotlessly clean, lovely interiors. Quality shines out throughout this property and it is very deserving of the 5* rating, a real home from home. A couple of points that may be of use - a few cushions for the sofas might be nice and I know in some properties the housekeeper will put shopping away for you if a home delivery is arranged to the property on arrival day, which saves a trek to the supermarket after a long journey. Just a thought!"

    "We've had a really brilliant week here in this lovely property. Thanks to the owners for all the extra touches around that transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. One of the best Snaptrip that we've stayed in - and there have been many of those! The weather has been very kind to us - despite the gloomy forecast before we arrived. We got out and about in the dry and sometimes warm sun - everyday. We had lots of fun and laughter as a family, a great holiday."

    "It was such a treat to arrive at this beautiful property after a mamouth 7.5 hour journey. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here, and were luck to have fine weather for the majority of the time. We aprticularly enjoyed the boat trip on Ullswater; Aira Force, Corn Bank, Larch Cottage Nurseries, Hallin Fell Walk; Catbells Walk and exploring the shops of Penrith. We hope to return in the not too distant future."

    "A really nice house, loved sitting on the balcony for breakfast/dinner. Had a lovely meal in the Quince in Cockermouth, now my favourite restaurant. Had a great day out visiting Westwater and the drive overto the Longdales was wonderful. Also enjoyed the shows at the theatre by the lake in Keswick. Booth's supermarket is excellent. We all had a lovely time getting together in such a lovely spot."

    "The accommodation was excellent except the WIFI connection was very slow and to be honest do not really feel that it should be stated in the brochure as there being a connection - it should be pointed out as intermittent. Unfortunately, we had to leave early due to personal circumstances, I did text the housekeepers to let them know but did not get a reply so I do hope that they did receive it."
