With cosy spaces inside and a fabulous garden, whatever the weather, find somewhere to relax and unwind after days exploring your lovely surroundings.

Dating back to 1900, this property was originally built as a gatehouse for the grand neighbouring property. Now providing delightful accommodation for two people, it's the peaceful home-from-home you've been looking for. A spacious entrance hall welcomes you into this charming cottage and leads you through to the open-plan living/dining/kitchen area, a really wonderful space. The wood burner in the living area is a fantastic feature and the well-equipped kitchen is ideal for creating special meals a deux. The lovely double bedroom feels really relaxing and the bathroom has a shower over the bath to suit all tastes. A delightful patio with outdoor furniture and a BBQ area can be found off the living room and leads on to the enclosed lawned garden. Wrap up warm and enjoy a steaming hot chocolate in the autumn or dine alfresco in the summer, whatever the time of year you'll be wanting to spend time out here thanks to the simply stunning views on offer.

A stay here also gives you access to a shared natural woodland. Enjoy a stroll through the trees whilst keeping an eye out for the resident wildlife. Guests can also walk down to the river from the cottage, why not take a book and a flask of tea and enjoy a peaceful moment on the river bank. A walk at Lacy's Caves is a must for anyone staying in the area. A circular walk starting from the nearby village of Little Salkeld, explore this intriguing set of caves carved into the sandstone by Colonel Lacy, who also has a connection to the cottage.

If you do fancy a day out, why not plan a visit to picturesque Ullswater? Head to Glenridding where you can hire a boat to explore the water - or catch a ride on the steamer if you'd prefer someone else to do the hard work. Stop off at Pooley Bridge for souvenirs or head up nearby Askham Fell for stunning views of the area. A trip to the popular market town of Keswick is a must; indulge in a spot of retail therapy before stopping for lunch at one of the independent cafes. Whatever you decide to do, this property is the perfect place to base yourselves.

Though cosy by its nature, the accommodation is light, bright and airy thanks to having windows on all sides - all the better to make the most of those stunning views! The open-plan living/dining/kitchen area allows for easy living. Curl up in front of the wood burner with a good book or relax by watching the TV, which has Freeview and a DVD. The dining table is perfectly positioned by one of the windows so you really can dine with a view. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you'd need for a self-catering holiday; there's an electric oven and hob, microwave, toaster, kettle and fridge/freezer. There's also a handy dishwasher - so there's no need to fight over who has to do the washing up here! - as well as a useful washing machine. Though the cottage enjoys a beautiful rural setting, it does also benefit from Wi-Fi, perfect for keeping in touch with family and friends at home.

The double bedroom is just as cosy and charming as the living room. With a 5-foot metal bed, original feature fireplace, built-in wardrobes and a chest of drawers positioned in the feature bay window, this bedroom a delightfully relaxing haven. As well as the requisite WC, the bathroom contains a shower over the bath so all tastes are catered for.

French doors lead from the living area out onto a patio area with outdoor furniture and BBQ area and onwards to a lawned garden which is mostly enclosed with access to the lane. With stunning views of the River Eden, it's the perfect spot for both that first morning cuppa and a refreshing G&T come 6 o'clock. Whilst you're staying here, you can also enjoy access to a shared natural woodland and are able to walk down to the river, a real treat.

This lodge is a wonderful place, If you love peace and quiet, you will not be disappointed. It's rare to find a detached property without close neighbours that sleeps two. We felt at home here, loved the woodburner, it made for cosy days. We look forward to returning soon.

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.
