An Introduction to Lake District

Sykes collection of Lake District cottages and holiday homes offers a wide range of quality accommodation. From a Lakeland cottage on a remote working farm to a property right at the heart of things in a bustling Lakeland resort such as Bowness or Keswick, we are sure to have a Lake District cottage to meet your requirements. And whether your Lakeland cottage break is to be active, indulgent, relaxed, romantic, challenging or simply some precious time out with the family, we're sure to have a perfect handpicked Lake District holiday property just for you. Many of our Lake District cottages are available for short breaks throughout the year, an ideal opportunity to grab a late Lake District holiday deal or last minute break.

The English Lake District is a region of breathtaking natural beauty. From the highest fells to the quietest and most remote valleys and from the sands of the Cumbrian coast to where the eastern fringes of the region nudge the rolling hills of North Yorkshire, there is something truly magical and awe-inspiring about this ancient land, carved out by glaciers over millennia. Whether your Lakeland cottage is a base for an active holiday, romantic escape, or get-away-from it all break, the charm of the Lake District is certain to weave its magic.A Lake District cottage holiday is a perfect choice for a break at any time of the year. Though principal towns such as Kendal, Keswick, Windermere and Ambleside are thronged with visitors during summer weekends, those seeking to get away from it all will be rewarded even in the height of summer on a Lakeland cottage holiday in many of the quieter villages and hamlets dotted among the green valleys of this beautiful region. Out of season, even the larger towns still provide a relaxing haven for a Lake District cottage holiday break.
