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.

Susan - verified booking

"Although the cottage was fully equipped with everything we needed there were a few issues regarding cleanliness and the outside. There were cobwebs down the side of the beds and dressing tables and some shelving was dusty. We had to wash most of the dishes and cutlery before we used it as it looked grubby. Outside there were lots of weeds both on the driveway and in the back garden which made the outside look unappealing. The grass hadn’t been cut. Also there were overhanging branches to the entrance of the parking area. The garden storage box was held together by rocks and was falling apart. The BBQ looked rusty. The garden furniture was peeling and the covers were stained. The windows needed cleaning especially the master bedroom.The large bin outside was overflowing with rubbish which appeared to have everybody else’s rubbish hence the reason we refused to drag it up to the end of the road. With both single beds the springs could be felt coming through when lying down. Sorry to be so negative but with a bit of TLC the cottage could be a fantastic place as it is situated in a lovely area with plenty of rural walks and lovely scenery. It is also very well equipped."

"Please ignore the "Susan, Bognor Regis" revue 25th June 2018. Having just spent 4 days in this superbly located, amazingly equipped totally as described cottage, we would recommend it to anyone. The kitchen is superb with all the Bosch appliances anyone could possibly need, plus Rangemaster cooker, plus Miele washing machine, everything clean !tidy including the vital to some, replaced oven glove. Private parking right outside the door where there are a few weeds, but so what in this gorgeous part of the world. A few rear garden weeds we didn't notice because of the stunning open views beyond. The good quality outdoor furniture is fine and in a condition most people would expect. The rubbish removal would not be an issue if some visitors didn't think it beneath them to take to the bin to the collection point on Mondays as requested. I took the rubbish, including that of "Susan, Bognor Regis", the 50'paces to the collection point enroute to the very useful local store, a further 50 paces i.e no problem what-so-ever, needless to say "we will be back🍨""

Christine - verified booking

"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."

Shirley - verified booking

"We really enjoyed our week at S93151, the cottage was very, very clean and comfortable with good furnishings. The kitchen has all you need if you like to cook your own meals. The living room and kitchen are upstairs ( bedrooms downstairs ) so you can enjoy the wonderful views. There is freeview tv, WiFi, radio, some books and games, a building near the cottage that has a freezer and room to store bikes. We found the area to be very quiet and peacefu and in a good location to visit other areas. It isn’t a big cottage, but for us this wasn’t an issue at all. It was cosy and cared for and a great place to stay."
