We loved this cottage - so spacious, clean and well-equipped, and a perfect location for the village pubs and shops. Lots of beautiful walks to do locally and only a short drive to Ambleside and Coniston. We couldnt have chosen a better place for a week in the Lake District and would love to return there another time.

Applerigg was the perfect base for our week in the Lake District. It was comfortable, spacious and clean. It was well equipped with everything we needed and was in a great location - ideal for a stroll into Hawkshead and for walking, both directly from the cottage and further afield.

Applerigg was the nicest holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. However the garden is not fully enclosed for dogs with just a low wall.

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
