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.

    "This is a good apartment, spacious, good furniture, plus - having an en-suite as well as a bathroom makes life so much easier with a grown up family. Wonderful views and with only a short walk, easy access to the lovely coastal promenade and Grange-over-Sands as a whole. Plenty of parking. The proprietors were welcoming and extremely helpful, including lots of local knowledge to help you make the most of your visit. Lovely spacious rooms, adequate kitchen equipment. The grounds are pretty but woodland walks need some maintenance. Note:- take a torch to get short distance from car park to entrance if you get back after dark - there are no street lights and on a dark, cloudy night it is difficult to see. In terms of location for the general area:- Good central location for southern peninsula, Lakes and Yorkshire Dales.Grange-over-Sands also has an award winning pie shop -Higginsons- please visit it - brilliant selection. No big supermarkets but local Co-op has everything you might need if you want to eat in the apartment. Only 'draw back' (depending on your opinion) is no apartment wi-fi/internet - only available in a small room off entrance hall plus poor mobile phone connection in the region as a whole - on the plus side it does give time to reboot and escape the electronic world. Overall, excellent value for a well located apartment."

    "We booked this cottage last minute and had a lovely first family break away as a whole.The cottage itself is small which we knew but the downstairs smelt of damp. I found the fire also didn't work after following the instructions provided. The cottage itself was clean.My suggestions below I feel would benefit the downstairs of the cottage as feels very cluttered with the lack of space it has. 1 - an L shape sofa under the stairs would benefit more rather than the larger L shape sofa currently in place. 2 - I'd remove another piece of furniture such as the corner unit3- Purchase a smaller coffee table.4- fold the table down and stack chairs so can be used if required as kitchen also small.5-replace the back door or get it planed as have to force door to open fully6 - have the damp issue downstairs looked into. Upstairs1 - remove the creepy picture overlooking the bed in front bedroom.2 - strip ceiling wallpaper as half of it seems to be coming away3 - refresh woodwork paint as VERY wornOther Provide wifi if you rent this property out a lot. Thanks for your hospitality. Although I have negatives we did have a lovely holiday. I just feel the cottage has a lot more potential and feels slightly neglected."

    "We had informed the owners of a new time of arrival and they kindly ensured that we arrived to a roaring log fire which was lovely to arrive to. Comfortable and clean, it had all the appliances that we could have expected. Other nice touches were the flowers, chocolates and miniature bottle of wine.Unfortunately the oweners were not in when we arrived so we didn't get a brief to the cottage. I made the assumption that the shower was electrically heated! This is not the case as I discovered on the first night as the hotwater tank emptied on me! Warning, it doesn't last long!Despite the appalling weather we endured, my wife and I had a really good time. Its about a 20 to 25 minute walk into town, and 25 to 30 minute walk back. (It's uphill! ).Some lovely walks nearby, and a nice change to be woken by the cows on this working farm. We found the place first time in the dark and rain, but we think we were lucky. Look out for the farm sign high in the trees on the main road."

    "S73401 is in a very good location, just off of Windemere Road, around the corner from Kendal Greene, and an easy walk to the center of town. Parking options around Kendal Greene are sometimes a bit of a walk away, but we always managed to find a space. Beyond this, however, there is very little to recommend the cottage. It is very small, which is not something that can be remedied, but it was given to us in an extremely dirty condition (my wife spent the first two hours there degreasing the kitchen cabinets) and the furniture in the sitting room reminded me of the seats in a Soviet era Bulgarian train I once took into Paris. Unless this cottage is the only game in town, you can do better, but perhaps you should consider camping."

    "The cottage was very clean and the equipment in the kitchen was new and had everything you needed but there was a musty smell throughout.It had good facilities and was good as a gateway to the Lake District. The cottage is heavily furnished which means you can't literally move in the lounge and have to push the coffee table against other furniture to be able to sit down. The bathroom did have a hand held shower and no shower curtain or screen which made it awkward as the men in the family are over 6' tall. Parking is an issue on nearby roads, free from 6pm-8am but limited to an hour after that. The caretaker was very accommodating when we mislaid our key."
