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.

Simon - verified booking

"S79602 is a beautiful house with character and charm. The house boasts original oak and flagstone flooring, open fire, vintage wallpaper and original hand carved farmhouse kitchen cabinet (dated 1600s). Room sizes are generous, the views and superb over the valley and deer were spotted in the garden. We stayed over Easter (4 adults 2 children) and were delighted with the property, as National Trust members we felt like we were staying in our own private NT house! During cold periods (we had snow) the house was a little cold downstairs (bear in mind it is 350+ years old) but the central heating did well (and can be boosted if necessary). We were always warm upstairs and the fire made the living room cosy in the evenings. Just remember slippers as the flagstone floors downstairs were a little cold underfoot (if you are coming in the colder months). There is a lovely quaint tearoom at the top of the drive and a National Trust house in walking distance. Ambleside is a short drive so you won’t beat location for exploring the Lake District (parking for Helvellyn 25 mins drive at Glenridding)."

"We had a perfect week at S86207 House, especially as we were lucky with the weather! The house has beautiful views over Grasmere and is a easy walk into town to the Co-op, cafes, and pubs. The house itself is extremely spacious and is perfect for families as it has separate rooms for relaxing, entertaining, doing a jigsaw. It's worth mentioning as the house is a bit older, a few things need fixing, but it didn't effect our enjoyment of the house or holiday. It would be great if the owners could provide a notebook with instructions on the house (where to find the first aid kit, where to find the extra fridge, why is the house called S86207?) and personal suggestions on local walks and restaurants, etc. Also worth mentioning, that although there is an outdoor table, it doesn't look out over that gorgeous view. We drank our Rose' on the porch, which was nice, too. Thumbs up from us!"

"A really lovely, warm and welcoming accomodation but with a few minor but frustrating flaws. Having cooked a meal on arrival, it became evident there was absolutely nothing with which to wipe down worktops. No dishcloth, sponge or anything similar.....which meant a trip to the shops to buy something to keep the kitchen area clean. Also, no toilet brush? Why?, and how do you keep the toilet clean? The shower was very poor. No pressure behind the water at all so having soaped long hair, there was a real concern that I wasn't going to be able to rinse all the soap out. A power shower with a proper cubicle door would have made a big difference and made this lovely accomodation quite superior. Despite the above, I would recommends the accomodation as being a delightful place to stay."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at S85212. It is equipped with all the expected things and is decorated to a high standard. We didn’t need to light the fire but it was nice to have it as an option. The sitting room was cosy and warm and the beds were very comfortable. The matching fabrics all add to the cosy cottage ambiance. We hunted for the immersion heater switch (it’s above the kitchen table) and we were never totally confident that we had parked in the right place (where is ‘alongside the cottage’? There’s a garden alongside the cottage) but apart from those two minor issues we had no problems at all. We would certainly go there again and can recommend it."

"My family including three adults and a nine year old child really enjoyed their stay at S93151 as I do not have enough room for them to stay with me in Lorton. It was so clean and tidy and very well equipped. They made lots of cakes while they were there and cooked most of their meals there so saved money on having to go out. They loved the views from the upside down sitting room. They found the short drive to go down to Crummock Water and Buttermere great as well as finding easy shopping in Cockermouth. It was their first visit to the Lakes and S93151 Cottage made it a great experience."
