This pretty cottage has been lovingly restored, yet still boasts lots of original features, and offers the perfect romantic retreat and base to explore the Lakes and coast.

Enjoy a break at this delightful cottage in Eaglesfield, 3 miles from Cockermouth, in Cumbria. Set approximately 1 mile from the fringes of the Lake District, this gorgeous abode could be ideal for a small family or group of friends eager to enjoy the magnificent national park. Sleeping four guests and a dog, the two-bedroom holiday home has a wood burner for cosy nights in and an exquisite cottage garden where you can unwind over a chilled glass of wine on summer days.

Step inside, via the porch, to find character-filled yet comfortable accommodation. Pop the kettle on in the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner then make a cup of tea to enjoy with the Lakeland gingerbread you have bought on a trip out. Prepare delicious meals for your party in the farmhouse-style kitchen/diner area; you also have a handy washer/dryer for whizzing through any walking clothes. Dine at the table together, then take a step up to spread out into the lounge. Light the wood burner in here and find a film to watch on the Smart TV. Climb the steep, narrow, cottage-style staircase up to the first floor, taking care as you go because the ceilings are low. When night falls, you have two beautiful, double bedrooms to choose from. The family bathroom, with a roll-top bath, is also up here. In the morning, wander out into the sunshine and take a few steps up to enjoy the private garden, which is just across from the cottage. You have parking for one small car, with additional space on the road, subject to availability.

Head into Cockermouth to potter around the shops, dine out, and visit Wordsworth House and Gardens. Drive 11 miles to reach the shores of beautiful Buttermere and wander a 4.5-mile circuit of the lake which takes in some fabulous Lakeland vistas.

Dalton cottage was an excellent property renovated to a very high standard indeed.

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
