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.

familytravel4x4 - verified booking

"We were up in Keswick for our annual family gathering and in particular this year to celebrate a 90th birthday. Have stayed in other properties in the location but first time in S6575. Great little bungalow with the added bonus of a large entrance lobby and a sun room off the kitchen. Excellent shower in the bathroom - the best we've had in a number of years. Although there was a musty smell that we couldn't track down. Beds were comfy and plenty of bedroom storage space. Towels aren't provided which is a shame as they are bulky items to pack. Internet would have been useful especially as mobile signal is intermittent. Would be reluctant to book again due to the lack of wifi - but if wifi was included would love to stay again!"

"We've just returned from this property and would return without a doubt. My husband and I, along with our two young sons (aged 4 and 10 months) had a wonderful week here, and the property catered for all our needs. The cottage was spotless and the owner left milk and tea bread (to be highly recommended!) for our arrival, which was a nice touch. It is an ideal location for exploring Keswick and the surrounding area - close enough for the local amenities, but far enough out to appreciate the peace and quiet of the lakes. I can't recommend this highly enough."

"What a find. A 10 minute walk into Keswick (turn left out of the house down the snicket at the end of the road ,it's a lot quicker!). It's situated on the edge of town so well away from what can be a very busy town centre. The cottage is very clean and has EVERYTHING you need for a real home from home holiday. There's so much to do in Keswick and there are dozens of great walks within a 20 minute drive. We even did Skiddaw from the house. The pitch and putt golf near the lake is great fun. Still lots of walks to do in the area so we'll be back again"

Mrs Bradley - verified booking

"The cottage was in a very quiet area with great views, which suited us well. You could walk into Keswick in 10 minutes by turning left out of the door and walking down a footpath to meet Ambleside Road. This was very useful and we did this a few times. Our long stop-start journey up the M6 due to roadworks meant we were glad to eventually arrive at the cottage, to find there was no heating on, but after a quick phone call to the very helpful owner we were able to resolve this. (Just a very ..."

"We went this february for my wifes birthday easy to book and find and were greeted with a lovely note ad a fruit cake by the owners. we have been going to the keswick area each year for approx 15 years and this one of the most welcoming cosy cottages we have been to. an easy 10 minute walk into keswick. the views from the front are superb and it is situated in a good quiet area. it is a lovely home from home and is superb value for money. we loved S6575 and will be going again"
