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.

    Only a 6 mile drive from Lake Windermere, Hazelwood Court offers breathtaking country and coastal views from 5 spacious 2-3 bedroomed holiday apartments, carefully prepared and maintained by the on-site resident owners, on ground, first and second floor levels. This imposing late Victorian country house occupies an enviable, elevated 4 acres of conservation area, natural woodland, and terraced landscaped gardens, with seated outdoor view terrace and ample, level off road parking for over 20 cars.
    All the apartment living rooms and most of the bedrooms offer amazing unspoilt views over the adjacent farmland, golf course and tidal estuary, to the rolling wooded uplands across Morecambe Bay, and to the distant Pennine Hills beyond. Visitors are regularly impressed by the size and quality of the building structure, the spacious apartments living space is enhanced by high corniced ceilings and large windows, with quality furnishings and decor, with an antique and period style which complements the contemporary kitchens and bathrooms with their creature comforts.
    Resident proprietors are normally available to meet, greet and show guests around their accommodation, where a fruit bowl, flowers and a welcoming tea tray are provided. Their unobtrusive on-site presence is regularly appreciated if and when a prompt solution or local knowledge are required. Access to the property is a 15-minute drive from the M6, Junction 36, with delightful daily excursions into the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks made easy. Good train and bus service links are also available.
    Within walking distance is the coastal town of Grange-over-Sands, a refreshingly friendly community of traditional shops, cafes, gardens, and park with regularly used bandstand and a traffic-free mile long curved promenade, which has retained its tasteful, low-key character since the mid Victorian railway arrival changed a sleepy fishing village into a genteel holiday resort. Not renowned for its nightlife and amusement arcades, Grange-over-Sands is still appreciated by those looking for quiet quality, with nearby Cartmel, the birthplace of sticky toffee puddings, providing popular summer time National Hunt race meetings, several gastro pubs and the nationally acclaimed L’Enclume restaurant amongst the historical cottages clustering around its magnificent 12th-century priory church.

The familiar Lake District villages of Coniston, Hawkshead, Grasmere, Ambleside, Windermere and Bowness are all easily reached by car. Nearby stately homes and gardens at Sizergh, Levens, Holker and Blackwell are well worth visiting, with many more a little further away. The whole area offers the unique artist and cultural heritage of Wordsworth, Coleridge, Southey, Ruskin, Ransome, Romney, Potter, Wainwright and so many others who chose to make their home in this lakes and mountain concentration of outstanding natural beauty. Visit their homes as well as the countless museums, galleries, studios, craft centres, aquaria, agricultural shows, village sports and festivals which compete for your interest and attention. The more active can find countless opportunities for such activities as walking, climbing, cycling, golfing, horse riding, fishing, water sports, with nature reserves, wildlife centres, leisurely lake cruising and a superb variety of food and drink establishments, providing relaxing alternatives for the less energetic visitor throughout the area. Whatever preferences your holiday party may reveal during their stay here, it is difficult to imagine anyone being disappointed with the huge range of choices available.
