Sleek and stylish cottage, set out on one level, in the picturesque village of Edenhall. Enjoy a romantic retreat, exploring the surrounding Lake District National Park and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

This property is a fabulous, one-bedroom retreat enjoying a peaceful location in the picturesque village of Edenhall, located on the edge of the Lake District National Park and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. An elegant and stylish home from home, the accommodation is all laid out on the ground floor and is beautifully presented throughout. The open kitchen-dining-living area is a wonderful social space. The modern shower room is a real treat, and the spacious super-king-size bedroom can also be made up as a twin upon request. As well as a parking space and access to a shared outside area, outside the cottage is a pleasant patio garden area with outdoor seating, a lovely spot for dining alfresco.

A small, peaceful village, Edenhall is easily accessed from the M6 and A66 but still tucked away from the main hustle and bustle. Located within the beautiful Eden Valley, there are plenty of walking opportunities nearby. Why not book in for breakfast at the village hotel? A great way to set yourselves up for the day! Walk along the picturesque River Eden to the neighbouring village of Langwathby, stock up on supplies at the village shop or enjoy a hearty meal at the popular pub here before the return journey. A trip to nearby Lacy's Caves and Long Meg Stone Circle is a must - you're sure to be enchanted. Fans of fishing can take advantage of Whins Pond, just a 5-minute drive from the cottage, or why not book a tee-time at nearby Penrith Golf Course?

With both the Lake District and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within easy reach, there’s plenty of choice for longer days out. Magnificent Ullswater is less than a 20-minute drive away; enjoy lunch in one of the friendly cafes at bustling Pooley Bridge before hitching a ride on the popular Steamer for a scenic cruise around the lake. In Keswick, the adventure capital of the North Lakes, adrenaline junkies can sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies, or indulge in some retail therapy in the outdoor and independent shops in the town centre. Visit the North Pennines village of Alston, reputedly the highest market settlement in England. This village is sure to charm with its cobbled streets, market cross and bandstand; ambling around the village is a delightful way to spend an afternoon.

Head inside this homely cottage and you’ll find a large, open-plan living-dining-kitchen area, which is a great social space. Beautifully decorated, you'd be forgiven for thinking you had stepped inside a boutique hotel rather than your own home from home. The sleek kitchen is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, handy built-in microwave, fridge and even a dishwasher so there will be no need to fight over who does the washing up! In the kitchen is a feature breakfast bar with two stools, the perfect spot for grabbing a bite to eat. There's also a stylish glass dining table with two colourful orange chairs, ideal for convivial mealtimes whilst comparing notes on the day's events. The living area is light, bright and spacious. There are two three-seater sofas to choose from, a Smart TV and an electric fire, perfect for cosy evenings in.

The lovely bedroom has an inviting super-king-size bed, perfect for indulging in a long lie in - you are on holiday after all! With feature bespoke panelling behind the bed and gorgeous pops of colour, you're sure to feel spoilt in this fabulous bedroom. There's plenty of storage thanks to the useful chest of drawers, and there's also a Smart TV in here too. The bedroom can be made up as a twin upon request if you would prefer two single beds.

The modern shower room can be found off the bedroom. In addition to the WC and wash basin, this stylish bathroom has a fantastic large modern shower cubicle so you can enjoy a refreshing shower after a day out exploring. A heated rail is a bonus for lovely warm towels afterwards.

Outside, the cottage also has its own off-road parking space, and there's outdoor seating for two, perfect for an al fresco aperitif after a day out and about. This cottage (along with three others) sits within the walled garden of the adjacent Vicarage. Guests are welcome to walk around the delightful, shared area between the cottages, when the main gate is open.

Lovely place. Everything felt very new and well presented. The owner left use of dog bowls, blanket and towel, which was lovely. If the main gate is shut then its a nice enclosed courtyard, which enabled us to open up the door to let our dog out. Its also a stones through from Edenhall Country House hotel where they have a bar and restaurant, whichRead more we used and the bar is dog friendly. Also a lovely walk/footpath that starts by the play are and comes back round into the village. Hide

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
