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.

    Delightfully situated in secluded and peaceful surroundings, just a quarter of a mile from the heart of Hawkshead village, Yew Bank stands in almost 2 acres of landscaped gardens and woodland with superb views over Esthwaite Water towards Claife Heights, Latterbarrow and Kirkstone Pass. Dating from 1880 and adjoining another cottage, this stylish and spacious Lakeland residence has double glazing and is well furnished and equipped to provide very comfortable accommodation.
    The house has associations with Beatrix Potter, who lived in nearby Sawrey, and is well known for her children’s books featuring Peter Rabbit and his friends, but less well known as a successful Lakeland farmer and breeder of Herdwick sheep. The garden, enclosed by stone walling, has a patio, generous lawns and shrubs and a little bridge over a stream, making this a quiet retreat in a truly majestic location.
    In nearby Hawkshead, one of the Lake District’s most attractive villages, there are narrow streets, whitewashed cottages and little alleyways and courtyards, as well as an excellent selection of shops, inns and restaurants. The old grammar school, famous for its former pupil William Wordsworth, is now a museum, and the Beatrix Potter Gallery (NT) can also be found here. On the doorstep is some of the Lake District’s finest scenery.
    Windermere is the largest lake in England, best appreciated by taking a boat trip from Bowness to Ambleside. Also within easy reach is beautiful Coniston Water with the village of Coniston (5 miles) nestling beneath the fells, and The Old Man of Coniston, rising majestically above. Overlooking the lake is the former home of another of Lakeland’s famous inhabitants, the influential artist and writer, John Ruskin, which is now a museum commemorating his work.
