Traditional Lakeland cottage, with stone feature walls, beams and lots of quirky features, the perfect hideaway for a couple discovering the Lakes.

Immerse yourselves in the beauty of the northern Lakes when you stay at this delightful character cottage in Uldale, 10 miles from Cockermouth. Sleeping two guests, and also welcoming one canine companion, the delightful, one-bedroom abode makes a simply idyllic romantic retreat for a couple. Dating back to the 1600s and once part of a yeoman’s house, the gorgeous stone holiday home has been creatively refurbished to offer comfortable accommodation with an abundance of original charm. From here, make excursions to Lake Bassenthwaite, 4 miles away, and Derwentwater, 11 miles away. Return to soak up the sunshine and the Lakeland scenery from the privacy of the pretty cottage garden.

Wander through the porch and into the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, which is toasty in the winter thanks to the oil-fired Aga. Settle in here to take in the fabulous views; you’ll have a Smart TV with Sky Q so you can watch films together too. Prepare romantic meals in the kitchen area, where you’ll have a dishwasher, plus a washing machine and a tumble dryer. Venture up the cottage-style staircase when it is time to take yourselves off to bed. Choose from a king-size bedroom, with an en-suite shower room, or on the mezzanine floor above, an additional single bed and reading area. Gaze out towards the mountains from the garden on sunny days and have a cocktail out here as the sun goes down. There is parking for two cars at the cottage.

While away a few hours in Cockermouth, browsing in the shops, visiting Wordsworth House and Gardens, and exploring the castle. Have a day out in Keswick, 11 miles away, where you can take a launch out on Derwentwater, have a go at paddleboarding or canoeing, and book tickets to a show at the Theatre on the Lake.

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.
