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.

DonianGuru - verified booking

"If you want to stay and visit Keswick but don't want to be in town, then this accommodation is in a great location being about 5-7 minutes drive away in a rural very quiet village location, in fact it was ideal for the two of us and our two dogs. Apart from the Pottery 30 seconds away, which serves nice tea/coffee and cakes, there is nothing else there but we found it great to be able to drive into Keswick which has an abundance of shops and restaurants. You can walk steeply uphill on footpaths from the door into Whinlatter Forest, taking about 20-30 minutes to get to the main visitor centre area. The actual dormer bungalow accommodation is fine; it has a good size driveway and a very small garden with patio, the garden has no lawn so is mainly shrubs. Whilst we were able to keep our dogs within the fenced garden area it is not gated so be careful. Its very easy to criticise small aspects of the accommodation as others in the Visitor Book have done so over many years and in isolation not major problems, but are helpful suggestions to improve, like needing a mirror in the en-suite, somewhere to hang coats in the hall, a clothes horse, replacement dishwasher cutlery basket, a floor mop etc, none of these had actually been done which is a pity. It had good Wi-Fi connection and the rooms are fairly large. There are great views of the fells particularly from the upstairs rooms. It was nice to have both a downstairs and upstairs lounge with TV in both. There was plenty of china and cutlery, cooking utensils etc. The owners phoned us on arrival and were extremely keen to make sure we were happy with the accommodation; a nice touch. The décor was fine; in places it needs a little TLC and smartening up. It is not luxury accommodation neither is it poor. The showers again were fine, they are electric powered so the flow rate is always going to be limited compared with a pumped or mains pressure shower. If you are tall, then the upstairs bedroom may be an issue in places. The bed was very comfortable. For us the location and views were the main USP, the fact that it needed a little TLC in places was not off-putting. Yes we'll return if they'll have us."

"We have just returned from S25989 and it has been a lovely relaxing week. The lodge has everything you need and more. Great loaction on the park as it situated in front of the woods so it's great if you have a dog like we do for walks. Short walk from the lake which you can see from the front of the lodge. The club house on site was a little busy at the weekend but ease off during the week which served nice food and drink. The only down side to the site is it is very dark at night as there are no lights along the lodges when you are walking back from the club house could cause a problem if you haven't got a touch with you. The site is well situated between Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside. You can get a taxi if you didn't fancy walking for as little as £7 each way for 4 people which is cheaper than the bus as the bus is £3.50 per person each way. We would definitely return to this lodge."

"The property is larger than you expect from the photos and is fresh and bright. Unfortunately, the washing machine and tumble drier are in a garage full of rubbish, a large Christmas tree, a burst box of spilling washing powder and a leaking roof which has made every surface very wet - not a clothes or me friendly environment. The tumble drier is £1 coin operated but the new £1 did not seem to fit. There are no hooks to hang any coats in the main house and the upstairs is much chillier than the ground floor - making the upstairs lounge unappealing, even though it has a great view. This is the only property that we have ever booked that has not had a welcome pack of at least tea bags, coffee or sugar - ? is this a Lakes Cottage Holiday norm or just this property as having driven for 7 hours in difficult weather conditions this was disappointing."

"My family gathered in S89826 at Easter. We came from three counties and our party included a baby. The house was very clean, large enough for us all to gather together and yet to find space when we needed some quiet time. The views towards Skiddaw are beautiful and there are walks from the house. There was plenty of cooking equipment and quick dishwasher, or Keswick just a short drive for eating out or a take away. The beds were comfortable and the house very warm. All three cars were parked off road. Coat pegs behind the bedroom doors or a coat stand for dry coats,and some coats pegs in the utility for the inevitable wet coats would have saved us draping them over leather dining chairs and dripping on to the lovely oak floor! But that said we had a truely relaxing break in an absolutely beautiful setting. Would go again tomorrow!"

"We really had a great week at the S89826,the weather was good and we explored scarf pike,catbells and visited keswick,Ullswater and Windermere and even had time for go ape near Windermere. Where S89826 is also a perfect for walks because there is a forest walk just behind it and a visitor centre only 30 minutes away with a lovely cafe and a smaller go ape/bike hire and well marked paths of different distances from 1 and a half hours to 4 hours The dog in dream land with all the open space and would book it again if he could, The place it self is so well set up with everything you could want and is set in a quiet area well away from the A66. The views are very good from the down stairs living room/kitchen and we spent alot of time in the upstairs as that is so well set up. Will book again in the future"
