Please find below a selection of personally inspected, self catering holiday cottages within 10 miles of Winster in Cumbria. Were you looking for holiday cottages in Winster, Derbyshire instead?Planning a family holiday to The Lakes? Then consider a cottage holiday in Winster, where you can indulge in outdoor adventures just like the Walker and Blackett children of 'Swallows and Amazon' fame.
On the southern side of the national park near Lake Windermere, the Winster Valley is a picturesque, pastoral region of rolling, green meadows, wooded hillsides and dry stone walls, scattered with settlements like Winster village. Made up of a huddle of whitewashed cottages, a church with lovely stained-glass windows and a well-established pub, it's a peaceful place to escape everyday madness.
Known for its abundant crops of damsons, spring is a special time to book your Winster cottage when white blossom adorns the orchards and sweet scents fill the air. Mid-April means Damson Day, a huge celebration for locals and visitors alike. Alternatively, plan your cottage stay in Winster during autumn, the time when roadside stalls bulge with ripe fruit - wonderful just as they are or to fill a pie and top with whipped cream. Do also look out for damson jam, gin and wine.
Other reasons to book a Winster holiday home include sailing on Lake Windermere, wildlife watching (nuthatches, woodpeckers, buzzards, roe deer and badgers) and, of course walking. Don't miss the climb up to Gummer's How, a family friendly route promising outstanding views over Lake Windermere, the Coniston Fells and Morecambe Bay. Otherwise opt for Fell Foot Park (National Trust), a beautiful lakeside retreat where you can picnic, paddle, go rowing and kayaking, let off steam in the adventure playground and sample homemade cakes. Enjoy!
