Explore the lakes and fells of the Lake District, with stunning walks and cycle routes from the front door of this reverse-level property. Boasting original features and contemporary style, there is even an on-site country pub to enjoy.

This wonderful property, situated just 8.5 miles from Keswick and 9.5 miles from Penrith, is the perfect bolthole for families and couples alike. Sleeping four over two welcoming bedrooms, this holiday home is ideal for using as a base to explore the Lake District and the Pennines. Go for a leisurely ride on the Ullswater Steamers (8 miles) to experience the Lakes or travel through the Pennines on the South Tyneside Railway (28 miles).

The property, which has a pub on site serving food and local ales, is spacious and comfortable with a contemporary style. The open-plan living area on the first floor is bright and airy thanks to vaulted ceilings and neutral decor. Cook up a storm in the kitchen and enjoy at the breakfast bar, or head over to the pub for dinner. Downstairs, the bedrooms offer a peaceful night’s sleep; snuggle in for the night among exposed beams and tranquil tones and wake up to beautiful views from the windows in the morning.

Head off to Rookin House Activity Centre (1.5 miles) to try your hand at clay pigeon shooting, archery, go-carting and more. If you’re looking for something more sedate, go for a tour around the Lakes Distillery (17 miles) and sample some whisky, or enjoy a wander around the Derwent Pencil Museum (9 miles). The views from Sharp Edge on Blencathra (4.5 miles) are not to be missed, and neither are those at Striding Edge on Helvellyn (10 miles). Aira Force Waterfall (4.5 miles) is well worth a visit and is suitable for little legs too.

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.
