Immerse yourselves in the astounding natural beauty of the Lake District when you stay at this delightful cottage at Seatoller, 8 miles from Keswick. Sleeping five guests, the three-bedroom property has been beautifully finished to offer sumptuous accommodation marrying origin character with stylish interior design. Venture 4 miles from the cottage to the shores of beautiful Derwentwater or visit Lake Buttermere, just 3.5 miles from the property. Head back from your exciting days out to light the wood burner or sit in the sunshine next to the brook, gazing out towards the fells and soaking up the serenity.

Open the door of your new home from home and head into the lounge to unwind after excursions out. Stoke up the wood burner, switch on the Smart TV and find a good film to enjoy together in the cosy warmth. Make your way into the equally chic kitchen/diner to whip up a delicious meal for everyone to enjoy at the table. You have a handy utility space, with a washer/dryer for damp clothing after long country walks, and a downstairs shower room.

This is a lovely cottage to stay anytime of the year. We have stayed in the area many times and this is as good as any we have stayed in. Its compact, but beautifully furnished and equipped. And a very good instruction book. Seatoller is a great place as you can park the car, and either walk, cycle or use the bus to get everywhere you need to go. WRead moreill definitely return. Hide

Excellent, beautifully refurbished cottage in a stunning location. Very clean and well equipped. Would be cosy for 4 adults (+) in the lounge but 2 bathrooms is a bonus. An excellent bus service on the doorstep means you can do without your car all week. Pubs within walking distance also helps! Would happily return.

Stunning cottage, really well thought out and comfortable. Virtually everything we needed for a super stay was provided. The location could not have been more perfect for us, there were so many spectacular walks from the door and being surrounded by Lake District fells felt very special. The space in the back room for keeping walking kit out of theRead more way was great and the living area very comfortable. We were only two and wonder if it might be a little cramped for four. All in all fabulous. 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. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
