Map of the Lake District

The Lake District is England’s largest natural park and home to many hidden natural wonders, including Windermere, England’s longest lake. 26 miles of coastline and beautiful estuaries edge the area and it was back in 1810 that famous poet William Wordsworth published his Guide to the Lakes. Sparsely populated with just over 40,000 living in the area, this corner of the country comes to life as a popular holiday destination. Visitors will not want to miss exploring the bustling market town of Keswick and nearby Threlkeld.

Why book one of our holiday cottages in Lake District?

The Lake District National Park comprises 912 square miles of high mountains, lakes, rivers and coastline and receives almost 16 million visitors a year. No wonder, then, that it was loved so dearly by Beatrix potter, Alfred Wainwright, Arthur Ransome and William and Dorothy Wordsworth.

The landscape is steeped with footpaths and by simply stepping out of the front door when joining us for a stay in one of our Lake District holiday cottages, you’re likely to find yourself walking an ancient trail with unerring scenery flanking your gait.

From breath-taking Windermere to hikers-havens Threlkeld and Keswick. We have a variety of self catering properties for you to enjoy. Whether you’re looking to take the kids on a family trip or bring your canine companion.
