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.

Confirmed Guest - verified booking

"Stunning location with amazing views of the fells. Beautiful house, tastefully renovated and extremely comfortable. Good to have separate TV area and conservatory sitting room. Well equipped kitchen. Two fridges - very helpful. Good to have separate Cruick Barn with its own TV for teenage children! It’s expensive but a luxury experience.We’ve been coming here for the last few years and the fly problem has become significantly worse. We were swatting / could have swatted 50-60 flies a night and couldn’t put food down in the kitchen without covering it. We suggest the owners think more about potential permanent solutions, if that’s possible.Fire alarms went off for second year in a row but electrician arrived same day to sort. Dishwasher also broken when we arrived but thanks to very helpful housekeeper, repair man arrived a couple of days later."

"There were 14 of us staying just after Easter, together with three dogs. The house and Barn were always warm, well equipped and it was convenient that all the bedrooms had their own facilities with plenty of hot water, especially as there were six youngstersThe walkers enjoyed walking the surrounding hills, one walk taking over six hours to complete,and we could see them in the distance from the lovely day room.We occupied the main bedroom and it was a delight waking in the morning and drawing back the curtains to see the sheep and young lambs outside our window.The furnishings throughout the house and barn were of a high quality."

"This property was perfect for our celebration with family and friends. We all loved the position with amazing views from the large conservatory. The level of equipment was the best any of us had seen, glasses, crockery, cutlery and utensils in abundance. Every need had been predicted and provided for. We added in hot tub hire and had catering done by Lynne Hilditch who was recommended by the Rowley estates. Lynne’s food and service was first class. The level of comfort here is truly Deluxe."

"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!"

Vanessa - verified booking

"The location was perfect and the team at the retreat were amazing from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. It was the ultimate experience in relaxation. The only reason I didn't rate it 10 out of 10 for every section is due to food debris in one of the cupboard and underneath some of the plates. This didn't detract from a wonderful holiday and relaxing experience and the wonderful team in reception, the bar, the restaurant, the spa and the spa maintenance team.Thank you !"
