Reviewed by Charlotte 4th August 2018

The property was large and well equipped. There was 6 adults, 2 teenagers and 2 dogs and we had a lovely holiday. We were in the middle of nowhere which we liked as we felt it was a central base to where we wanted to visit. It was slightly frustrating that the car ferry wasnt running. It however it didnt stop us, just meant it took us longer to getRead more to where we needed to be! The Cuckoo Brow Inn was a nice pub to visit! I would just add that we felt the garden wasnt suitable for our dogs. 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.
