This completely refurbished and well-presented house offers the perfect base for families to discover the Cumbria coast and Lakes, with an enclosed garden for your four-legged friends.

Retreat to the western fringes of the beautiful Lakes when you stay at this well-designed holiday home in the village of Gosforth. Located approximately 5.5 miles from the coast at Ravenglass, the four-bedroom house sleeps six guests and up to four dogs. Plan trips out to picturesque Eskdale, 5.5 miles away, or to scenic Wastwater, 4.5 miles away. Walk on the beach at Ravenglass, see the ruins of the Roman bathhouse, then return to relax out in the garden at your Gosforth cottage.

Enter via the hall and wander through to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Put the kettle on for a cup of tea, unpack the provisions you have bought and consider whipping up a tasty meal for your party. You have a useful washing machine, plus a dishwasher so no one has to wash up after dinner. Make your way over to the comfortable seating to unwind in front of the Smart TV, play games with your family or friends, or read your book. Climb the stairs at the end of each exciting day to soak in a bubble bath in the family bathroom then lay your head in either the super-king-size bedroom, the twin, the double or the small double. Spend sunny evenings out in the garden, sizzling supper on the BBQ and sitting out round the firepit until the stars come out. Parking for this cottage is on the road, subject to availability.

Keen walkers might like to attempt the 8-mile loop of Wastwater, which takes in some magical views. Eager climbers can drive 8 miles and then attempt to reach the top of Scafell Pike, the second-highest mountain in England. Stanley Ghyll Waterfall and Great Worm Cragg, both about 10 miles away, are other beauty spots hikers will enjoy.

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.
