Rent a cottage in Dacre with Sykes and expect heritage and intrigue around every turn. The village features a scattering of white-washed cottages, which huddle around St Andrew's Church, a Grade I listed building built on the site of an ancient monastery. There's a wonderful country pub in the village too, serving delicious home-cooked fare and a range of cask-conditioned ales.
Take a trip to the Lake District with a Dacre holiday home
Looking to explore the Lake District? You'll be perfectly placed with a Dacre cottage rental. The village is a mere five miles from Ullswater, and country lanes mean you can get there on foot if you like to walk. One attraction not to be missed in the area is a trip aboard an Ullswater Steamer, which depart regularly from Pooley Bridge and transport visitors on a charming boat-trip along the mere.
There's a wealth of other attractions on offer during a Dacre cottage break too, including a plethora of quaint towns and villages that are well worth a visit. Head to Grasmere, following in the footsteps of the late laureate, William Wordsworth, before buying some gingerbread in the village's eminent bakery. Enjoy afternoon tea in one of the delightful tearooms of Keswick. Ascend the popular peak of Helvellyn from Glenridding. Or explore Penrith, and treat yourself to a trinket or two in the town's curious independent shops.
