Find cottages in Cumbria

Take a look at our new Inspire and Explore section for the ultimate guide to holiday activities in the Lake District.

Cumbria is one of Britain’s most loved and visited holiday locations, providing a unique combination of dramatic mountains and awesome lakes. It’s a place that attracts visitors all year round and appeals to a wide variety of holidaymakers from couples who want to stay in a cosy Lakeland cottage to families who are looking for country homes with a view.

Cumbria has a great blend and variety of contrasting landscapes, including the renowned Lake District National Park which includes all the iconic places synonymous with the Lake District such as Windermere, Keswick and Ambleside as well as famous lakes such as Lake Windermere, Derwentwater and Coniston.

The mountains and fells here are spectacular and include iconic peaks such as Blencathra, Skiddaw, Grisdale Pike and the largest mountain in England Scarfell Pike. The county extends well beyond The National Park offering great cottage holiday destinations like the tranquil Eden Valley in the east and the rugged uplands to the north around Hadrian’s Wall or the Western Lakes and Coast on the west and the Cartmel Peninsula in the south.

Because of its quite compact geography it’s easy to get around the Lake District and despite of its popularity it’s still possible to escape fellow holidaymakers to admire the wide open spaces and spectacular views with the feeling that you’re the only one there, apart from the sheep!

The great outdoors is of course one of the main reasons people visit; this is wonderful walking and cycling country as well as providing lots of opportunities to sample the watersports on the numerous lakes.

Families will find no shortage of top quality visitor attractions, those interested in National Trust properties and gardens will also not be disappointed. The region is packed with picturesque Lakeland villages to discover, specialist shops, cosy pubs and restaurants.

Those thinking about taking a cottage holiday in Cumbria are sure to find something suitable, whether it’s in the ‘hot spots’ of the central and southern lakes or the more remote and rugged areas of the northern lakes, or maybe the less well known regions to the west and east of the county.

So whether you’re looking for lots of activities and attractions or a quiet ‘away from it all’ break this region will suit.

Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Cumbria to find your perfect retreat.

    Ref: CC132177
    Appleby Castle is situated deep in the heart of the beautiful Eden Valley, just 15 miles from the Lake District, nestling alongside the meandering River Eden. This spectacular motte and bailey castle has been held by the Kings of England and Scotland and boasts one of the few remaining intact Norman keeps in Great Britain. In the 17th Century, the castle was the preferred residence of Lady Anne Clifford. She was a patron of authors and literature and known for her many letters and diaries.
    Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 2 is one of three holiday properties which make up part of the inner bailey wall and medieval defences, which stand adjacent to the Norman Keep which has hardly changed over the past 900 years. TThe old great hall, built in 1454, stands across the courtyard and guests are welcome to take a tour with afternoon tea during their stay (at an additional charge).
    Appleby Castle owns the fishing rights on both sides of the River Eden immediately beneath the weir. This is prime fishing territory and salmon, trout and grayling abound in this special stretch of river. Fishing rights are exclusively for castle guests.
    Appleby is built in the curve of the River Eden and is a traditional medieval town with the castle at the top of the hill sloping gently downhill to the church. This is one of the prettiest market towns in England and despite once being the county town of Westmorland, it retains a village atmosphere with a great deal of interest and charm. One of it’s famous residents, the father of George Washington, Augustine Washington, grew up in Cumberland and attended Appleby Grammar School with his elder brother John. Situated in the beautiful Eden Valley, the location is superb for exploring the highlights of the North of England as it separates the Lakes District fells from the Pennines and also gives easy access to the Yorkshire and Durham Dales. The scenic Carlisle to Settle railway route runs through Appleby and makes a great day out. Further afield, the Northumberland National Park along with Hadrian’s Wall and the Scottish Border are within an hour’s drive. Superb walking, cycling, golf and fishing are all available nearby.
    Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 2 can be booked together with Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 1 (CC132176) and Lady Anne Clifford’s Cottage No 3 (CC132178) to accommodate up to 10 guests.
