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.

DEBORAH - verified booking

"The cottage is beautiful... Absolutely perfect... We were there with 4 adults and 4 children aged 2,9,10 and 11 ...plenty of space, loads of storage, best equipped kitchen we've ever had on a cottage holiday. The garden is perfect for the kids, not quite fully enclosed but nearly. The views out of the windows are awesome... Loved waking up to the nags in the field... 2 toilets is a excellent thing to have with so many people...The beds were comfortable and each room was huge.Whole house was pretty basic with exactly what we wanted. The farmer and his family are absolutely the nicest people, couldn't do enough for us, even down to finding some pegs for the washing line.The beach is just down the rd and is shallow and safe for kids. Beautiful walks on your doorstep. There is a local shop which is well stocked if you get stuck, but there's nothing else nearbyDefinitely going again, wonderful cottage. X"

Tina - verified booking

"A comfortable and well appointed cottage. Very roomy and has everything you might need for a self catering stay. Main bathroom is on the ground floor. Lovely log fire. One point I would make is that we asked for a property within waking distance from a local pub and although the Crown & Mitre is only a minute's walk away it is only open some of the time. In fact, when I could get no answer from the pub, I was advised that it had shut down. We found out on arrival that it was only open sporadically and we were advised that to eat there you had to stay there. I think your website should perhaps be amended to reflect this as we had to drive to Askham and Haweswater for meals (both of which were very nice - The Punchbowl and Haweswater Hotel)."

Mike - verified booking

"The cottage is lovely with a wrap-around private garden situated in a quiet village. There was 6 of us, 4 adults and 2 children and there is plenty of room. The garden is very safe for the children to play and the cottage has everything you would want in terms of amenities. It is situated in a quieter part of the Lake District, in an area we hadn't visited before. It is warm and there is an option of wood burner which we didn't need. There are plenty of board games and dvd's and a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, beer/wine fridge, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier. There aren't many shops around so you need to take provisions with you. There are a few shops at Shap (4 miles) or Penrith for supermarkets."

Martin - verified booking

"Well appointed, comfortable cottage located at the end of a quiet access drive to the golf course on the Eskdale estate. Cottage is ok for 6 but requires use of a bed settee in the snug to sleep 8 which would be a squeeze. Small fridge even for 6. Space in kitchen for full height fridge would solve this. 1hr walk along farm track to Eskdale Green and access to 2 pubs. Local facilities on the West Coast are more limited compared to other parts of the Lake District. However, Wasdale provides one of the most iconic views and avoiding the crowds added to the relaxation. Advertised Wi-Fi was very unreliable during week but customer services were active in trying to resolve with BT."

Lou - verified booking

"It was a lovely cottage, very remote but lovely. Criticisms would be the fitted bed sheet in main bedroom clearly hadn’t been ironed but it looked clean thankfully. Integrated fridge would benefit an upgrade, was very small for cottage capacity and was worn with not all bits functioning (interior light not working, inside door shelf with no guard. Maybe add a larger fridge which would cater for a larger group.No spare bulbs for lamp in front lounge, nor spare batteries for the remotes (we had to replace them ourselves).WiFi service was shocking, worse than dial up it was said.All that aside it’s a lovely house and if improvements were made we wouldn’t hesitate returning."
