One of three holiday cottages in a converted stone barn, this retreat commands superb views of the surrounding countryside from the vantage point of Threlkeld village, 5.5 miles from Keswick.

A further BBQ and picnic area is shared with the two adjoining holiday cottages. The cottage is situated in an easy accessible position by the A66 but set high up above it.

A well situated cottage, easy to drive to various walks in and around the Keswick area and also not far from Ullswater. The pub opposite is very popular and food is beautiful though not cheap. Would be better if guests could arrive earlier than 5pm

Just returned from five nights at Clough View. Positives: Great location - right next door to a pub that serves fantastic food/good beer. But it's right on A66, which is a busy road. Negatives: Cottage could do with a little TLC - e.g. neither lights/shaver chargers in bathrooms working, or the cookerhood light. Shower was also a bit cold unless boRead moreiler cranked to high. The gate of front garden isn't great to shut - our dog ran out of it at night. Also no washer/dryer - just a washer and an airer Hide

The property is situated on the A66, a very busy road, at times too noisy for the windows to be opened. Whislt the property was well presented there were several things that let it down...the boiler didn't always produce hot water, we had to wait between showers for the water to warm, several of the light bulbs were blown, the microwave turn table Read moredidnt turn and the tin opener was broken. Whilst there were two exit doors there was only one key. meaning a fire escape was blocked 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.
