Enjoy a rural stay that benefits from both country and coastline here in Cumbria. With Whitehaven, Cockermouth and the area’s many fells close by, your stay here promises to be one filled with adventure.

Welcome to this cosy end of terrace cottage for up to five people tucked down a country lane in peaceful Lamplugh. Boasting fresh decor and some beautiful traditional features including a wonderful wood burner it has two lovely bedrooms overlooking its garden and the fells beyond.

Set on the western edge of the Lake District National Park the area around Lamplugh offers some gloriously unspoiled countryside as well as easy access to the coast. There is so much to explore within a few miles' radius of the cottage from tranquil tarns and gentle river strolls to wonderfully picturesque lakes and mighty fells. The tranquil Ennerdale Valley, one of the Lake District's wildest valleys is just a few miles away. Its remote location and wonderful walking opportunities make it the perfect place to escape to even in high season. Or why not visit Loweswater and Crummock Water in the opposite direction? Two stunning lakes with a wealth of walks both gentle and more challenging and the promise of a lovely meal at the pub located between the two.

If you'd like to explore local town life you could head to Cockermouth, less than 8 miles away. This charming Georgian town was the birthplace of William Wordsworth and you can still visit his childhood home. Alternatively you might enjoy its great choice of independent shops and eateries. Heading west you could visit Whitehaven, a Georgian maritime town with a colourful history involving rum, sugar and piracy. You could even bring your bicycle and follow the Coast to Coast cycle route from the cottage to get there. Whichever side of this lovely area you choose to explore, this cottage makes a charming and welcoming jumping off point.

On arrival at the property you are greeted by the traditional stone floored dining room with a lovely heavy oak table and chairs and a decorative fireplace. The room makes a great place for planning your holiday adventures over leisurely dinners. To your right on entry is the cosy living room. Decorated with local prints and fresh light decor it benefits from two brown leather sofas on which to curl up around the beautiful wood burner. There is a television with Freeview and built-in DVD player, the owners have thoughtfully left a selection of discs to choose as well as a choice of books in the dresser in the dining area. Beyond the dining room is the modern kitchen. It has a fan oven and electric hobs along with a fridge, microwave, caffetiere and sufficient crockery and utensils for your stay.

Moving through the traditional latched stair door you head up the curved staircase to the first floor. You first reach the master bedroom. This is a lovely spacious room with a double bed, wooden floors and a gorgeous view over the garden and nearby fells. It has a beautiful full length mirror, a chest of drawers and hanging hooks on the back of the door. The triple room has a single bed and sturdy bunkbeds. It's a lovely characterful room with a decorative fireplace, a wardrobe, chest of drawers and that dreamy view over the neigbouring cottage to the fells beyond.

This floor has a lovely large, light bathroom with an electric shower over the bath and a glorious deep bath for soaking away aching muscles following walks.

Outside the front door you cross the access lane for the other houses on the terrace to Lund Cottage's enclosed garden. It's a lovely space to enjoy the peace and quiet over an alfresco dinner or glass of wine.

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.
