Set on a quiet lane in a pretty village overlooking open fields, an ideal base for walking and cycling, Alfred Wainwright described the area as one of the pleasantest of the Lakeland Valleys: a quiet, unspoilt, beautiful location.

Bright and cheery throughout, this lovely cottage sits on a quiet lane in the quaint Lakeland village of High Lorton. Sleeping four people across two bedrooms, this former brewery is the ideal accommodation option for small families or groups of friends who want to spend their days mountain biking at Whinlatter Forest or kayaking at Crummock Water, and their evenings sipping wine in the cottage’s shared courtyard or relaxing by the glowing wood burner in the cosy lounge.

Head up the exterior stone staircase to the cottage’s pretty porch and step inside. Make your way through to the stylish kitchen and get busy cooking a feast for your loved ones. If you have the kids with you, point them in the direction of the snug/games room (they need to go back outside, head down the staircase to the ground level and access it via an external entrance), where the table football game will keep them happy until dinner is ready. Get the whole gang together at the dining table to eat, and then head out to the shared courtyard to crack open a bottle of something bubbly and watch the stars come out. Alternatively, make a beeline for a sofa in the lounge to catch up on your favourite TV shows by the glow of the multi-fuel wood burner. When it’s time for bed, you’ll find two lovely bedrooms on the first floor.

This property has plenty of lockable storage for your bikes and kayaks, which comes in handy if you want to go mountain biking at Whinlatter Forest (3.5 miles) or kayaking at Crummock Water (4.5 miles). Alternatively, if you’re feeling brave, take a dip in the stream, which flows alongside the village hall gardens (0.1 miles). Or head out for a hike to Scale Force (5.5 miles) to check out the dramatic waterfall.

We absolutely loved Corner Cottage from the location to the decor. Lorton is such a quiet, friendly Village and the little shop nearby was full of tasty treats, good coffee and supplies. The cottage is very loved and so comfortable (especially the bed) with lovely fresh linen and towels. We had quick access to some great walks over near Loweswater Read moreand Buttermere and a short drive to Cockermouth for fuel and supplies. We will definitely book Corner Cottage again. Hide

Clean, comfortable and cosy. A good 'home from home' to come back to after a day on the hills.

The cottage is in a beautiful location with stunning views. The decor is high quality and well thought out, beds are comfy and kitchen well equipped. Fab stay, it was a great base for walks and swimming. Local shop 5*. A couple of things to note - there is no shower so to avoid a cool bath make sure you boost heating beforehand. Also the snug is inRead more a separate part of the building, through an external door downstairs, so if you have younger children you wouldnt be able to leave them unattended. Hide

Great stay at the cottage. Very comfortable - super comfy bed. Well equipped kitchen and loved the little touches- books and maps etc. High Lorton is a great location to explore Buttermere/ Keswick areas and theres also lovely walks from the house. Would love to stay again.

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.
