Nestling in the beautiful Buttermere Valley, this Lakeland cottage offers capacious outdoor spaces for letting off steam, and cosy interiors for snuggling in front of the open fire with friends and family.

A short drive from the charming village of Buttermere and surrounded by beautiful countryside, this Lakeland farmhouse for up to eight people is sure to delight. Inside you'll find a cosy living room with an open fire, a country kitchen and a separate dining room. There's also a wonderful sun room and a handy utility room on the ground floor. Upstairs is the fabulous family bathroom and four lovely bedrooms, two with their own en-suite shower rooms and all with stunning views over the surrounding fields and fells. Outside, the cottage has parking for up to four cars and a wonderful large garden with outdoor seating so you can make the most of the fantastic views on offer.

Beautiful Buttermere is a popular valley, and rightly so! The walking opportunities are abundant and varied; from high fells to woodland rambles, there's something for everyone to enjoy. Grasmoor, Haystacks and Mellbreak offer avid hikers a great day out in the fells - the stunning views from the tops will certainly be worth the climbs. For a low-level walk, why not follow the 4.5-mile circular lakeside route around Buttermere? Stock up on homemade cakes and treats from the village, just a 5-minute drive or scenic walk away, and enjoy a picnic on the shores of Crummock Water, the perfect spot for some R&R.

The market towns of Keswick and Cockermouth are within easy reach, both being less than a 30-minute drive away. Known as the adventure capital of the North Lakes, Keswick is a must for adrenaline junkies. Take on the Go Ape High Ropes course at nearby Whinlatter Forest, try paddleboarding on Derwentwater or have a go at ghyll scrambling and canyoning with one of the local adventure companies. The birthplace of Lakes poet William Wordsworth, Cockermouth is a real gem of a Georgian town. There are plenty of quirky independent shops where you can indulge in a spot of retail therapy, and there’s a great choice of eateries, from cool cafes to tapas restaurants.

Step into the welcoming living room of this property and you're sure to feel right at home. The inviting sofas are positioned in front of the open fire, perfect for relaxing evenings in. There's also a TV with DVD player, CD-radio player and an iPod dock for entertainment. A wonderful sun room provides further living accommodation; light, bright and airy and with an amazing outlook over the surrounding countryside, it's a fantastic spot for catching up with a good book - if you can take your eyes off the view that is!

The country-style kitchen is well equipped with an AGA as well as a separate electric oven with electric hobs, so there's plenty of oven space for cooking up a feast for eight! The kitchen also has a breakfast table, microwave, toaster, kettle, and dishwasher. The fridge-freezer can be found next door in the useful utility room. In here you'll also find the washing machine and tumble dryer, should you wish to make use of those during your stay, as well as a handy extra WC. The separate dining room has a large wooden farmhouse-style table, ideal for the whole group to gather round and swap stories on the day's events - or spread out your maps and guidebooks and plan tomorrow's - over a hearty homecooked meal.

Onwards and upwards to the first floor, where you'll find the four lovely bedrooms. First up is the master bedroom, a fantastic spacious room with an inviting wooden super-king-size bed, perfect for indulging in a long lie in - you are on holiday after all! There's plenty of storage thanks to the tall chest of drawers, and the cute bucket-style sofa between the dual aspect windows is a lovely spot to sit and admire the views. This bedroom has its own stylish en-suite shower room with a WC, wash basin and modern walk-in shower with rain-effect shower head, ideal for refreshing tired muscles after a day on the fells.

The second bedroom has a wooden king-size bed, with matching painted bedside tables on either side. A built-in storage unit has drawers and hanging space, as well as a dressing table, mirror and stool. Again, there are delightful views over the fields and fells beyond from the traditional sash window. The bedroom also has its own en-suite shower room with WC, washbasin and modern shower cubicle, a real treat. Next up is the first of the two twin bedrooms, a bright, dual aspect room with matching single beds. The second twin bedroom is just as lovely as the first and has a cosy, welcoming feel to it.

The family bathroom is also on the first floor. As well as the WC and wash basin, there's a modern shower cubicle and a separate bathtub, perfectly positioned so you can enjoy the fantastic view of the fells from the window whilst enjoying a relaxing soak.

As well as ample parking for up to four cars, outside the cottage is a very generous garden. There is a large lawn area with picnic tables, perfect for dining alfresco. The raised patio off the sun room has an inviting wooden bench, a lovely spot to sit with your morning cuppa and take in the wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. There is also bike storage available in the car port opposite the cottage (please remember to bring your own secure bike locks).

Wonderfully warm and comfortable house for a family group, the Aga and unlimited hot water were perfect for our winter break. The beautiful conservatory had an amazing 180 degree view of the hills and the garden was very pretty.

The house is large and in a beautiful part of the Lake District. A track leads down to the lake, and paths opposite into the fells so lovely walks without having to use the car. The Aga and heating system keep it beautifully warm even in awful weather. Very comfortable beds! An unexpected bonus was the electronic piano. We couldn't get the TV to woRead morerk which wasn't a bother for us but might be for some and some kitchen equipment was in need of replacement, but overall a great place to stay. Hide

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.
