Beautiful cottage in the western lake district with a very homely feel. Fully equipped with everything you could need and special little touches from the owners who kindly left a bottle of wine, home made cookies and bread and milk for us. We felt really looked after and would definitely stay again. Highly recommend a stay here and it's not too farRead more from Buttermere and Crummock water. Only have good things to say and Thank you to the owners. Hide

A stunning, stunning cottage that has been beautifully restored to a high standard by the owners. Everything you could want has been provided with lots of personal touches to make you feel welcome. The location is secluded and quiet with mature gardens and trees ensuring plenty of bird and wildlife around. Only a 15 minute drive to Cockermouth and Read moreclose to Emmerdale Water in the opposite direction (ask Debbie for tips on where to go!). A truly fantastic stay! Hide

It was a relaxing beautiful place to stay.

Reviewed by George February 2022

Although the weather could have been kinder that second week of February 2022 it did not detract us from enjoying our stay at the extremely comfortable Red How Lodge near Cockermouth, Cumbria, where the welcome from the friendly and helpful owners made us feel very much at home. The cottage has been renovated to a very high standard and has everythRead moreing you need for a relaxing stay. The cosy lounge with its wood burner was our favourite place to spend evenings with a glass of wine and plan our excursions for the following days. The Kirkstile Inn near Loweswater is a must visit and the Vagabond at Whitehaven has a good reputation for quality food. We were honoured to be the first guests to Red How Lodge and would recommend a stay there without hesitation. 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.
