Relax in the pretty village of Arnside and discover the wonders of northern England, with glorious walks from the doorstep, an abundance of flora and fauna, a beach 500 metres from the property, and boasting equal distances to the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks and the traditional seaside town of Morcombe.

This is a fantastic retreat for up to six people, located in the peaceful village of Arnside. 12 external steps lead up to the front door where you'll find the accommodation all laid out on the first floor. There's a well equipped breakfast kitchen and spacious living/dining room. The property has three lovely bedrooms, a double, a twin and a bunk room, and a modern family bathroom. The accommodation is light, bright and airy, with lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The cottage also has a garage for storing bikes and a delightful rear terraced garden.

Arnside is a peaceful village, overlooking the estuary of the River Kent and on towards Morecambe Bay. Stroll along the pier, a reminder of this quaint village's past as a bustling fishing port, and enjoy the stunning views over the water. There are plenty of local walks, from woodland rambles to the popular Arnside Knott which offers fantastic views over the area. Arnside itself has a handy railway station and a well-stocked village shop, as well as a few local eateries to try out too.

If you fancy heading slightly further afield, there's plenty of choice for a day out. The whole area of Arnside and Silverdale is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and you'll soon see why. Explore the nature reserves at Warton Crag and Gait Barrows, whilst for keen ornithologists the RSPB nature reserve at Leighton Moss is a must. Why not head south to popular Morecambe Bay? Sign up for a guided walk across the sands (don't venture out by yourselves) or hire bikes and cycle along the picturesque promenade. The beautiful South Lakes are within easy reach as well so why not head away from the coast for a day on the fells?

Head up the 12 external steps that lead to front door, inside you'll find spacious and bright accommodation for up to six people. To the right off the welcoming entrance hallway is the living/dining room, a wonderful social space. Light, bright and airy, thanks to the large picture window to the front, there are lovely views over the surrounding countryside. The sofas are positioned in front of the electric fire and there's a TV in here too, perfect for relaxing evenings in. The round dining table is the ideal spot to catch up on the day's events over a hearty, home-cooked meal.

The kitchen, at the rear of the cottage, overlooks the delightful tiered garden and is well equipped with all the essentials for a self-catering holiday. There's an electric oven and hob, toaster, all important kettle, handy microwave, fridge and there's even a dishwasher so there'll be no need to fight over who has to do the washing up!

The three lovely bedrooms and bathroom are also located off the central hallway. First up is the master bedroom. Another light and spacious room, in here you'll find a handy wardrobe and a useful full-length mirror. The double bed is perfectly positioned to make the most of the view over the garden so why not bring your morning cuppa back to bed and indulge in a long lie in - you are on holiday after all! Next up is the twin room with its matching pine single beds. This room has plenty of storage thanks to the wardrobe and chest of drawers and the large window makes the most of the countryside views to the front. Last but by no means least is the bunk room, another spacious bedroom with a handy chest of drawers for storage.

The modern family bathroom has a WC, wash basin and bath with shower over meaning all tastes are catered for, whether you prefer a long soak in the tub or a refreshing shower.

As well as parking for two cars on the driveway at the front of the cottage, to the rear is a large garden. Laid out over different terraced levels, it's a wonderful space. A raised patio area has an outdoor table and chairs, ideal for dining al fresco. The garden slopes upwards from here and quaint wooden bench on the next level up has wonderful views over the rooftops to the surrounding countryside. Steps lead up to the top of the garden where you'll find a gate which leads to a footpath that takes you into Arnside village.

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.
