With the new ‘Rule of 6’ lockdown measure that came into place this week, you may be looking for new ways that you and your group of family or friends can safely spend a holiday together.
We have a number of holiday cottages in the Lake District and across Cumbria that are right next to one another, which means your group can hire more than one property, stay together in your family bubbles, and still spend socially-distanced time together when you're out and about!
Take a look at some of our cottages that are next door together, or feel free to get in touch for more possibilities.
Easedale House, Keswick
You’re well placed at Easedale House in the heart of the popular market town of Keswick. This characterful Victorian building houses six self-contained apartments, each bright and spacious and perfect for several couples looking to enjoy a break together. You’ll be in easy reach of all Keswick has to offer including shops, eateries, Derwentwater, walking routes, and attractions.
High Winder Cottages, Ullswater
This is a great option if you have a number of bubbles wanting to travel together. These four cottages - all on one estate - are pet friendly and sit high above beautiful Ullswater. It’s just a few short miles to the lake where you can ride on a lake Steamer, visit tumbling waterfalls or hike some of the most iconic fells in the country!
High Winder Cottages includes four cottages sleeping 8, 6, 2 and 4, plus 2 pets each.
Rigg Cottage and Rigg Green Cottage, Eskdale
These two semi-detached cottages in Eskdale Green have plenty of space for two families holidaying together. They both include lovely period features and are within easy reach of the pub and the local shop. There’s also fascinating attractions around including a miniature steam engine, Muncaster Castle, and lots of beautiful rivers and woodland to explore.
Helm Farm, Windermere
The properties on Helm Farm are all gorgeous and bright with characterful features and most boasting crackling open fires! They’re just outside Bowness-on-Winderemere, possibly Lakeland’s most popular town! From there the Lake District’s many beauties are open to you: from stories of Beatrix Potter to boat rides across the lake, outdoor adventure activities and gentle walks. This is a village that is well deserving of its popularity!
Rock How and Birk How, Eskdale
These delightful semi-detached houses make the most of their positions in beautiful Eskdale with views over the valley and towards the fells. You will delight in the wooden and slate floors, open fires, pretty gardens and welcoming feel. You're also likely to occasionally hear the iconic La’al Ratty steam engine tooting its horn as it passes through the valley!
Yewdale Crags and Tarn Hows Apartments, Coniston
Situated on a quiet lane in the lovely South Lakes village of Coniston, these homey flats are wonderfully welcoming. Expect freshly baked cakes left by the owners, a pretty garden, and access to all the delights of this area. Yewdale Crag towers outside the properties and in the village you can visit museums, take out a boat on the lake, or enjoy some great local food at one of the eateries!
Sula’s Loft & Athena, Keswick
These two beautiful apartments share one of the iconic slate buildings in Keswick and are both equally unique and special. Sula’s Loft, the larger of the two, spreads across three floors and expertly blends traditional features, mid-century design, and modern comforts. Athena on the ground floor has a gorgeous open plan living space, king-size bedroom and pretty courtyard.
Orchard Cottages, Haverthwaite
Sitting next to each other on a pretty stone terrace on the southern tip of the Lake District are 2 and 3 Orchard Cottages. Number 2 is warm and welcoming with relaxing tones throughout while number 3 is a stylish retreat that provides a delightful contrast to its traditional exterior!
Johnby Hall, Greystoke
Found in the grounds of spectacular Johnby Hall, Johnby Hall Barn and Johnby Hall Apartment are two bright and cheery conversions that offer up loads of space, original features, and even an opportunity to enjoy breakfast in the grand dining room of the manor! You’re also welcome to explore the grounds, which include lovely gardens, a working farm, and plenty of nooks and crannies to explore.
Whether you choose to go on holiday this year or not, I hope you stay safe and enjoy some time with loved ones.
