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.

    Ref: 23778


    Far from the madding crowd, this delightfully cosy holiday cottage is one of only a handful of buildings in the beautiful and unique moorland landscape of Grisedale, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Built in 1666 with low beams and latch doors, it has wonderful open views from the south-facing garden. Grisedale (also spelt Grisdale on some maps) is located close to the train station of Garsdale, just off the A684 between Hawes, 6 miles, and Sebergh, 10 miles. The nearest pub, serving good food and a selection of real ales, is about 3 miles away. Grisedale was known as the ’The Dale that Died’ from the book and TV documentary of the same name, filmed in the 1970s when the last remaining inhabitant left the valley. Since then, many of the buildings, including Moor Rigg Cottage, have been renovated and life has returned to the valley. The area is a real paradise for bird watchers, with many species of owl and other birds of prey being found in Grisedale, along with ground nesting birds (skylark, curlew, oystercatcher, lapwing and red grouse). Red squirrels, hares, deer and wild ponies also frequent the dale. There are many footpaths across Grisedale and large areas of open access land. The cottage is located close to the Yorkshire Dales famous 3 Peaks walk, with 2 of the 3 peaks visible from the garden. It is also near the 2014 Tour de France route, allowing visitors to experience the spectacular scenery and follow in the trail of some true cycling legends. The cottage is also within easy reach of the Pennine Way, Coast to Coast walk and the Lake District (45 minutes to Kendal). Shops and restaurant 8 miles, pub 3 miles.

    Ground floor: Living/dining room. Kitchen with beams and tiled floor. Utility room. Steep, narrow, open tread stairs to first floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double with beams, 1 single with additional pull-out single (for alternative sleeping). Bathroom with toilet.

    Woodburner in living room (initial fuel included). Gas central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen and towels included. TV (no reception). DVD and small library. CD. Gas hob. Electric oven. Microwave. Washing machine. Tumble dryer. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Small, enclosed, paved garden and furniture. Barbecue. Parking (2 cars). Natural water supply from spring.
