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.

SCOTT - verified booking

"We stayed at S59683 for 1 week from Monday - Monday which was great as most places do Friday or Saturday change over, due to work Monday was best for all of us. Family of Four adults and One 5 month old baby and dog. Sitting room/dining room was rather small but we managed.Bedrooms really nice and comfy beds. Great to have the extra toilet and sink on the second floor so both bedrooms had a toilet for night time if needed. Very well equipped except I had to buy a cheap iron as not provided, otherwise everything you need including hairdryers in both bedrooms and even an extension lead so you can see in the mirror on top floor. Everything clean and tidy. High chair for older babies. Even a dog lead if you forget yours and a torch and walking stick. Very thoughtful. Close to Three pubs, butcher and general store and bakery, the garage stocks items if needed on a Sunday as other shops are shut (pit stop).Lovely walks through the park and beyond, scenery beautiful and so peaceful.Milk in the fridge on arrival and sugar, coffee and tea plus lovely fresh bread was much appreciated. Thank you to Ali we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay again."

"We have just come home after spending a week at S18681 and we had a wonderful time. I honestly don’t recognise the cottage from some of the comments already posted. Janine and Martin were wonderful hosts, there if we needed them but in the background otherwise; they even gave us a welcome bottle of wine!!! We knew about the steep steps etc before we went and also realised that a 17th century farm building could be somewhat different but it all added to the overall charm of S18681. We also had 2 dogs with us and they were made most welcome too. They were on the lead because there were sheep and cattle in the fields-I wouldn’t have expected anything other than this. The local people were very friendly and the local pub served up excellent food, as did others in the area. All I can say is that we would go back-S18681 was a real find and we really enjoyed our stay there enormously."

Jan - verified booking

"Unfortunately when we arrived the kitchen was in an appalling state, dirty and food debris in dishwasher and on and in hob and oven. Floor dirty, cupboards dirty. Cumbrian Cottages made a swift response and the cleaner arrived and spent two hours cleaning the small kitchen. That was great, but meant we had to wait and therefore could not cook. The d did not tell the full story about the upper floor which is accessed by an incredibly steep, and in places ladder like, stairway. This was very tricky with two disabled people and a toddler. The upper floor bedrooms are only suitable for very fit, steady people - and even then the risk of falling is huge as the stairs are not only very steep but also insufficient to accommodate a normal foot length. Cumbrian Cottages were very efficient in helping us with these difficulties. We wont be booking this particular house again."

Liberty - verified booking

"Perfect for two people. This apartment is in an ideal central location in Keswick town and it was very convenient to have a private parking space opposite. It was nicely furnished and decorated throughout though not particularly modern in style. The bathroom was very good - large and bright and looked newly refurbished. The kitchen was spacious and had most things you would need for self catering. Thought the dining table needn't be so large as it partially blocked access to the sink. The large ironing board did not look very attractive standing in the hall way where it would have been practical instead to have hooks for hanging outdoor coats and a waterproof tray below for wet boots after a days walking. The mattress on the bed was not particularly comfortable for us. However we liked this apartment and location and would book again."

Paul - verified booking

"Set in a courtyard only a few yards from the central square of Broughton , S59683 is ideally placed to explore the Western Lakes.Two decent pubs for eating nearby and good butcher/bread shops .With two dogs the lack of external enclosed garden initially disappointed but within 150 yds access to the fabulous parkland around Broughton Tower made up for it..also the adjoining 1 1/2 mile disused rail line through woods and ponds was the icing on the cake.The cottage is over three floors and fully equipped.It was clean and tidy and some provisions provided were welcome. Would i stay again? Of course...and thats the real review!"
