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.

- Mr Andrews, November 2016 - verified booking

"Fantastic location this cottage and handy to have a parking space in front of the property, as the road parking does get full at times. Some previous feedback on this cottage is ridiculous, shower is perfectly fine, internet now working, yes only one toilet for possibly six guest, but hardly a moaning point. Lovely cosy cottage and well located for a very short 2 minute walk into Windermere, a 20 minute walk into Bowness, or a short drive to Ambleside (try Watersedge Hotel in Ambleside for food, amazing!). All facilities in this cottage fantastic and good to have an enclosed back area for the dog. We will definitely book again and could not recommended this cottage highly enough, for the price and location alone."

"Just returned from a stay at the cottage over the Christmas period. The cottage has everything you need for a really comfortable stay, the place has a really warm and cosy feel to it, even though the rooms are a good size. The kitchen was very good, we cooked a full Christmas dinner with ease with all mod cons and gadgets. Good position in the village for 2 quality pubs, serving great food and a small deli over the road. Good walks from the front door including the Old man of Coniston. The cottage next door which is attached, looked equally good as one bedroom place. Brilliant stay would recommend it."

Mrs Blades - verified booking

"The fridge is falling apart. The ice box door falls off when you open it. There is no glass shelf over the salad box. Two pairs of wall lights didn't work. Had to read by torchlight. The double bed springs could be felt through the mattress, so had to use single beds instead. Sofa and chair extremely uncomfortable Two dining chairs were unstable. General appearance outside was needing of a good clean. Filthy windows. Overall extremely disappointed with the quality of this lodge. Desperately needs updating and modernising. Would definitely not stay again or recommend to anyone."

- Mr Hodge, August 2016 - verified booking

"We have taken our grandchildren to luxurious static caravans for several years, both in the UK and on the continent. This year we decided to have a change and booked S25967. This was an ideal base for touring the Lake District. The property is very well equipped and comfortable. We appreciated having the extra space compared to a caravan. The only disappointment was that the wi-fi did not work. There was no point contacting the agents since the matter had been reported in the visitors' book previously."
