Cottage was perfect. We took pictures of the mountains 10miles away but never thought we was situated in front of them. Amazing view and even got to see the USAF in action. If any negative the fairy lights around the hot tub cause a little light pollution when gazing but other than that the hot tub was amazing to. We spoke about coming back to the Read morelakes but would anywhere else top the experience we had them 2 days. You made a birthday girl very happy thank you so much. We've recommended you. Hide

This little hut was lovely, clean, well equipped, and sweet. The little touches of the fresh milk, Home made scones and biscuits made it all the more special. The hot tub was lovely to relax in after a nice walk. The views of the hills were beautiful. Lovely village pub a mile or so away. Lovely long walks on Derwent a few miles further. Lovely litRead moretle place to stay Hide

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.
