Lake District

Lake DistrictFamous all over the world for its picturesque lakes, mountains and forests, the Lake District is located in Cumbria, in the North West of England and spans a total of 885 square miles. Its exquisite beauty has inspired some of history’s great literary figures, including William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Thomas de Quincey and, of course, this same beauty has also helped to turn ‘Lakeland’ into an extremely popular tourist destination.

Indeed, the Lake District offers something for everyone, whether its couples looking to enjoy romantic getaways, families seeking fun-filled holidays, or groups of friends looking to let their hair down for a weekend, and a luxury Lakeland cottage is the ideal accommodation to make any trip special.

Natural Wonders

The Lake District is perhaps best known for its natural attractions, such as its mountains, lakes, moorlands and forests. The Lake District National Park, the most visited national park in the country, covers the bulk of the region and a total of sixteen great lakes fall within its boundaries, including Windermere and Buttermere . Meanwhile, Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain, is also located within the park’s limits and, in fact, the Lake District is the only place in England where you will be able to find ground higher than 3,000 ft above sea level.

Although the numerous peaks, troughs and bodies of water make for a spectacular landscape, they are far from being Lakeland’s only impressive natural sights. For example, the west side of the region offers a spectacular coastline, with plenty of beaches to enjoy on a day out, while the Lake District National Park houses ancient woodlands, containing examples of English wildlife, like the native Red Squirrels and Fell Ponies.

Luxury Cottages

Thanks to its status as a tourist hotspot, Lakeland is home to a large number of different types of accommodation, but nothing compares to the experience of staying in a luxury cottage. The range of cottages we have to choose from includes quiet cottages in the more remote parts of the Lake District, allowing you to avoid the hustle and bustle, as well as cottages in some of its busier towns and villages, putting you right at the heart of the action.

Luxury cottages are absolutely perfect for those who enjoy the independence of a self catering holiday, as well as the privacy of rental accommodation. Each cottage offers its own unique way of experiencing this beautiful part of the country, so regardless of the size of your party or your individual preferences, you will be able to find something that suits your requirements. Moreover, our selection includes Lake District cottages with hot tubs, for those romantic breaks, as well as pet and dog friendly options, which are ideal for family trips and saving on the cost of kennels.

Places to Visit

People staying in the Lake District have an almost-endless supply of visitor attractions to explore, virtually guaranteeing a truly memorable holiday. Families may enjoy a trip to the highly-rated World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, which brings characters like Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-Duck to life, while there are few more fun ways to spend an afternoon than a visit to the South Lakes Safari Zoo.

For those seeking somewhere to eat and drink, places like Keswick, Ambleside, Windermere, Bowness-on-Windermere and Barrow-in-Furness are able to provide top class restaurants and bars, while some of the Lake District’s smaller villages play host to delightful country pubs. In addition, if you have an interest in history, the region includes an array of museums, castles, forts and stone circles, dating all the way back to Roman occupation.

Ultimately, Lakeland is able to provide everything you need from a tourist destination: natural beauty, visitor attractions, fine restaurants, friendly pubs, great places to drive and great places to walk. Our range of Luxury Lake District Cottages serve as the perfect accommodation to come back to after an action-packed day out, no matter who you are on holiday with, or how you intend to spend your time in the area.
