Considered one of Cumbria's prettiest villages, a cottage in Askham offers a charming place to stay for a romantic break in the Lake District. Though small, Askham is perfectly formed: think white-washed cottages, huddled beside the village green, and an ancient church that has stood in the same spot for nigh on 700 years. Plus, it's just four miles to Penrith, making daytrips and supply runs a breeze.
