Swinside Cottage, Ennerdale

Swinside Cottage in EnnerdaleThe Ennerdale Valley, along with the lake of the same name, really is in the running as the most tranquil spot in the Lake District. There is no road alongside the lake - the only one of its kind in the national park - and access to the valley is by foot only. Thanks to this, you get a real feeling of seclusion and, if switching off is your aim during your Lake District visit, then this could be the place to do it. From Swinside Cottage, you can see the lake and surrounding fells and head out on numerous peaceful walks. The lack of WiFi at this cottage means you can also return and just make the most of a good book and the cosy wood burner!
