My week at Cruck Barn was absolutely wonderful, I cannot wait to return. Its setting is glorious - the sights and sounds are quite overwhelming. I loved the daily walk to and from Patterdale and being surrounded by tumbling streams, bah-ing sheep, cattle a-lowing & majestic views of Helvellyn & fells.

A fantastic accommodation in a magical setting- perfect for those who want to be alone in the mountains . Well appointed and equipped, warm and comfortable, the road ( single track lane) is most suitable for a 4x4 .. but our VW managed it ok.

Cottage was lovely, entrance round the back if you're arriving at night as we did.. take a torch! Everything was in good condition and worked, it felt very cosy, though no log fire, and the outdoors was stunning, waterfall outside back door, close to the Helvellyn trail which descends with dramatic views of Ullswater into Glenridding. We ate a coupRead morele of times at Fellbites who served lovely snacks, baked pots etc, beers, wines and nice cakes! Hide

We loved this cottage , we parked the car up and didnt move it until we left due to the great location. We walked through a week of storms and had no problems drying clothes, draughts or noise. The cottage layout was excellent allowing a cool bedroom and the rest of it warm. We will and have recommended it.

This barn is very cosy and comfortable and had everything we needed. All instructions given on the pre-information were spot on and we would definitely come again. Everything was provided that you would need. I was in waterfall heaven.

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.
