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.

Mrs Anne Jones, Manchester, Greater Manchester - verified booking

"We only had a short stay at S3691, but we were very impressed with the cottage itself and with the helpfulness and friendliness of the owners. We were attending a family wedding in Keswick, so our time at S3691 was limited, but we would have loved to stay longer. The house has a welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, and we liked the homely touches, such as the photographs of the owners' dogs. We'd hope to make a return visit next year."

A FlipKey verified reviewer - verified booking

"Very welcoming staff with complimentary bottle of wine and greeting card. Home was very modern, clean and spacious. Close to Pooley Bridge with a few shops and pubs. Pubs vey busy at weekends. Site amenities sparse, small on site shop with basics. Better shop at the Park Foot campsite down the road. Liked the location best, lack of club house on site and no local bakery."

A FlipKey verified reviewer - verified booking

"We stayed here for a week in one of the pet friendly rental. The accommodation was immaculate and spacious. The park is within walking distance to the Pooley Bridge Inn which is dog friendly and serves great food. Plenty of walks nearby too. Will be staying here again."

Mrs Natalie Petrie, Gloucester, Gloucestershire - verified booking

"This lodge is set in the beautiful grounds of the hotel and only a stones throw from the lake. The lodge itself was lovely and warm, clean and like a home from home. I would highly recommend."
