A fabulous location to explore the Lake District and Solway coast; the beach is less than 5 miles away. Private garden with views over open countryside and some great walks and cycle routes from your door.

Dating back to 1770, this lovely farmhouse sits in a fabulous location between the Lake District and the Solway Coast. Sleeping six people across four bedrooms and welcoming two canine companions, it’s an excellent accommodation option for families or groups of friends who want to spend their days strolling the beautiful beaches on the Solway Firth or kayaking at Derwentwater, and their evenings dining alfresco with their loved ones in the cottage’s pretty garden as they watch the horses in the neighbouring fields.

Step inside and you’ll find a handy hallway where you can store all of your outdoor gear. Make a beeline for the bright, welcoming kitchen and get busy cooking up some dinner. Get everyone together to eat in in the formal dining room, or head outside to the rear garden and dine alfresco on the patio. After dinner pour yourself a glass of wine and spend some time taking in the view, or head in to the lounge to relax in front of the TV. When the day is done, you’ll find two bedrooms just off the hall, and if you climb the traditional steep cottage stairs, you’ll find two more. The double on the first-floor boasts an exposed stone wall and a feature fireplace. When you wake up in the morning, grab a freshly-brewed coffee and head to the front garden to enjoy the morning sunshine.

Pack up a picnic and head to Mawbray Banks (6 miles) to see some of the finest sand dunes on the Solway Coast. Alternatively, tee off for a game of golf in Silloth (7.5 miles) or take a stroll on the gorgeous beach at Allonby (4 miles). Or head to Maryport (9 miles) to visit the aquarium and Roman Fort and Museum.

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.
