Cumbria Holiday Cottages

Cumbria Holiday Cottages Considered one of the most beautiful regions of the UK and encompassing the entire Lake District, Cumbria has developed a natural companionship with cottage holidays. Lake Windermere is England’s largest lake and arguably the most beautiful. Surrounded by wildlife and blissful scenery, the flora and fauna is simply wonderful. Your visit wouldn’t be complete without a traditional lake cruise with Ullswater Steamers; an excellent way to combine beautiful walkways with the spectacular lake.

Explore what the Lake District has to offer

If the great outdoors is your thing, then Cumbria is the destination for you. Packed full of walking routes, cycling paths and other outdoor activities – you can do as much or as little as you like, but have no doubt that with a stay in one of our self-catering holiday cottages you can combine the great outdoors with rest and relaxation.

For the children there are many attractions to keep them entertained during your stay; from animal parks and aquariums, to steam trains, open-top buses and boats. Take a walk back in time and visit ancient Cumbria or enjoy an educational tour of the many mines and quarries.

Budding historians, you’ve found your haven. There are a number of notable structures. Look out for the many castles, churches, mills, railway stations, museums and other tourist attractions that are of interest for the buildings themselves. Visit the numerous Roman forts and abbeys on offer here set in the beautiful countryside.

In Cumbria you’ll also find the Lakeland motor museum, South Lakes Safari Zoo, Carlisle Castle, Hadrian’s Wall, Lanercost Priory and Furness Abbey to name a few! A holiday cottage is the perfect base camp to ensure you see and do all you set out to.

Eating and drinking in the Lake District

When it comes to dining and entertainment, Cumbria is home to many award-winning restaurants and gastro pubs. You’ll find locally brewed beer, plus an abundance of local produce. Combined with international inspiration, these create a mouth-watering experience for even the finest of diners.
