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.

    Stable Cottage has been converted from the barn attached to the manor house, which is a typical example of a late medieval Westmorland long house dating from 1650. Originally used to house livestock, the barn was converted to stables in the 19th century. Stable Cottage now provides all the home comforts, cleverly combined with the historical aspects including original exposed oak beams and offers single storey accommodation. It is a perfect place for a relaxing break in the Eden Valley.

    There is an excellent range of pubs within walking distance, all serving good food and a wide range of ales, and the local village inn, which was built in the 1870s for the engineers of the Carlisle to Settle Railway which bisects the village, serves excellent food and real ale, so no need to cook while on holiday! The local inn also serve Tirril Ale, with the brewery located in the village.

    The property is pet friendly and two well behaved dogs are welcome. Being situated in the middle of beautiful countryside, there are riverside walks, or longer circular walks on the dramatic North Pennine Moors.

Hadrian’s Wall, the Northern Pennines, the edge of the Lake District National Park, the western fringe of the Yorkshire Dales and the Scottish Borders are also within a short drive. The Carlisle-Settle railway line is very popular, with a scenic route from Appleby through to Leeds. Settle or Skipton are stop offs on this route and are both lovely market towns, well worth a visit.

    From Stable Cottage you can enjoy a multitude of outdoor pursuits and activities including walking, climbing, horse riding, trekking, fishing, cycling, golf at Appleby and Go Ape treetop adventures. Bring your road bike as the area is quiet and relatively free of traffic, and it is no coincidence that the Tour of Britain cycle race has held numerous stages in area. Names such as Hartside, Great Dun Fell on the North Pennines, and Kirkstone, Honister, Newlands, Whinlatter, Hardknott and Wrynose Passes in the Lake District are there in cycling folklore. For mountain bikers, you are spoilt for choice with Whinlatter and Grizedale Forests and the GNAR Cumbrian Bike Park on the doorstep.
