A warm and welcoming home from home for couples, friends, families and one four-pawed pal – relax in front of the roaring gas fire after a great day in South Cumbria.

This lovely holiday property is a delightful 2 bedroom, mid terrace cottage sitting right in the heart of the charming village of Broughton-in-Furness. Through the front door is the cosy living room with original beams and a feature gas stove in the impressive fireplace. The bright dining kitchen is well equipped and there's a useful utility area with a handy WC. Up on the first floor are the two lovely bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and the second room has a triple bunk bed with a double on the bottom and a single on top, and the family bathroom. Open stairs lead from the triple bunk room to the loft area on the second floor. Up here you'll find a snug/games room, a real bonus.

Avid walkers will love the great choice of routes on offer in the nearby Duddon Valley - lace up your walking boots, pack a picnic and explore this beautiful, unspoilt area. A scenic 20-minute drive north east will take you to Coniston, another charming Lakeland village that's certainly worth a visit.

A lovely village but a drive to a lot of the main attractions of the lake district. Some of the roads were a bit narrow and full of local drivers going a bit mad but I can imagine it must be a nightmare to live and work there when the tourist season starts.

A fantastic cottage in a brilliant location. Despite our very late booking the cottage was warm and welcoming with a lovely basket of goodies to enjoy. The local shops are great and have everything we needed.

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.
