Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages in The Lake District.
Escape to a self-catering cottage in the Lake District, home to
England's biggest National Park. Find magnificent mountains
framing inky blue lakes and glistening tarns. Scale their heights
or head off-the-beaten track along miles of footpaths crisscrossing
the countryside. If you love the 'great outdoors', this
spectacular corner of Britain ticks every box and our Lake District
self-catering cottages provide the ideal holiday retreat.
Discover the region and its bustling communities like Kendal to the south, where you can pick up some Kendal Mint Cake. Keswick, meanwhile, is the northern gateway and a haven for walkers and climbers, with routes ranging from lakeside paths to towering peaks. Somewhere in the middle lies the biggest lake of all, Windermere, where you'll find the ever-popular tourist centres of Ambleside and Bowness, bursting with inviting tearooms and gift shops.
Get on the water and enjoy exhilarating water sports or leisurely cruises. Meet Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck. Or head for the tranquil shores of Grasmere and see why Wordsworth was so inspired by the beauty around him - don't miss a stop at the famous Gingerbread Shop either!
So whether it's gentle relaxation or an action-packed adventure holiday you're after, a self-catering cottage in the Lake District has it all.
