Beautiful Cumbria is full of surprises. From the unspoilt coastline of St Bees and Ulverston, to the lakeside towns of Alston and Ambleside – it boasts some of the most diverse and picturesque scenery in all of Britain.

But holiday cottages with pools in Cumbria are usually used for one purpose – as a base from which to explore the world-famous Lake District.

Stretching all the way from the shores of the Irish Sea in the west, to the market town of Penrith in the east, the lakes cover a huge area which is studded with pretty English villages and stunning natural views. From Bowness-on-Windermere and Troutbeck Bridge, explore one of Britain’s most famous lakes. Cottages with pools near Kendal and the Lakes Gateway offer easy access to popular spots such as Cartmel, Grange-over-Sands (on Morecombe Bay), and Kirkby Stephen to the north. East of Kendal, the Yorkshire Dales are just a short drive away. Cottage with private pools around Dent and Sedbergh are perfectly placed to enjoy both the striking landscape of the dales, and the peaceful stillness of the lakes.

Plan an unforgettable walking tour of the Lakeland area along one of the well-worn routes by Bassenthwaite, Pooley Bridge and Northern Ullswater, or Buttermere and Borrowdale. Or take a mini-road trip through the pretty villages of the Lakes – from Braithwaite to Coniston and Grizedale, Gosford, Thornthwaite and Great Strickland.

For cross-country adventures, head for the wild expanse of the Caldbeck Fells, the verdant valleys of Eskdale, or Ulpha and the Duddon Valley. And for a taste of Cumbrian city life, spend a day in Carlisle, with its 900-year-old castle and historic city centre.

Or simply get away from it all in a rural cottage with a swimming pool near Cockermouth and the North West Fells, Matterdale End, or Grasmere and the Langdale Valley.

Cumbria is the sort of place where you can truly relax and be as active or as laid back as you like, all while being surrounded by some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery.
