Situated in the western part of the Lake District National Park, this holiday hideaway is made for reunions with family or friends in magnificent surroundings.

This rurally located cottage for four people is situated in a secluded location near Loweswater. The cottage sleeps four people and offers a rare degree of privacy in an idyllic setting. It enjoys a lovely position on a private lane amidst beautiful scenery and upland farming.

The cottage has been refurbished in a contemporary style to make the best of the original features whilst providing modern facilities for a comfortable stay. There are two bedrooms with rural views and a cosy sitting room with a wood burner and comfortable seating.

Loweswater is a peaceful unspoilt location in the western Lake District. The western side of the lake is cloaked in woodland from the edge of the lake and on the lower slopes of Burnbank Fell and Carling Knott. These ancient woodlands are home to many rare and interesting wildlife including red squirrels, deer and many species of birds.

The front door of the cottage opens into the dining kitchen. This is a slate-floored room, well equipped with a gas hob and electric oven, Belfast sink, slimline integrated dishwasher, Smeg washer/dryer and an under-counter fridge with small freezer compartment. The LPG boiler provides heating and hot water and is housed in a kitchen cupboard. At one end of the kitchen there is a beautiful oak table and chairs, a window seat and the original oak ceiling beams.

Off the kitchen a door leads into the downstairs sitting room. The room features a slate mantel piece over the wood burner and windows to both sides. There is a flatscreen TV, DVD player and an iPod docking station.

Stairs lead upstairs from the sitting room to the first floor bedrooms and bathroom. The king-size bedroom, which is furnished with lovely oak furniture, has windows to two sides and views to the woodlands and fields. The twin bedroom has modern oak furniture and views across the surrounding farmland.

There is a contemporary bathroom with wooden floor featuring a bath with dual shower head over (rainhead and smaller shower head), WC, wash basin with mirror and shaver socket and a heated towel rail.

Outside, there is sitting out area with a wooden bench and the garden then flows down behind the traditional lakeland barn with further seating and breathtaking views to Loweswater. There is parking by the cottage for up to two cars.

The cottage is in one of the most beautiful places in the Lake District, with wonderful walks straight from the door. Great wood walks for dogs and good to be able to park beside the cottage. Lovely comfortable beds and luxurious towels. We really enjoyed our stay.

Wonderful house and location, so many walks that can be done directly, or with minimal driving. Some of the party also braved a (very short) swim in Loweswater. Quick to get into Cockermouth to stock up on shopping.

The cottage is in a lovely rural location with stunning views. There are walks close by and the town of cockermouth is a short drive. The cottage is well equipped with everything you could need. The bed was a bit hard for me but my husband found it comfortable so guess its personal choice. Overall Id stay here again if visiting this part of the lakRead morees. Hide

Lovely location. Well situated for a quiet break. Cottage is clean, well-equipped and comfortable. The owners are generous with provision of wood for the wood burning stove. Wood burner is great. Cottage has no direct view over the water so you need to get out to see it!

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.
