Find your perfect cottage in the Kentmere Valley
Browse our selection of Kentmere Valley cottages for a scenic holiday in one of England’s most beautiful natural locations – the Lake District National Park. This spectacular narrow valley is located to the east of the impressive Lake Windermere and contains beautiful rolling hills and green meadows. Nature-loving couples, families and groups of friends will find everything they need for an inspiring self-catering holiday trekking up peaks including Harter Fell (778m), High Street (828m) and Ill Bell (757m). Enjoy local brews in small, friendly pubs and explore historic houses such as Levens Hall (15 miles). Browse our holiday cottages to discover traditional country houses in tranquil rural spots, offering spectacular views over the surrounding countryside that is true food for the soul.
The Lake District is indeed known for its great food – sample gingerbread in Grasmere (17 miles) and sticky toffee pudding in Cartmel (24 miles) – and of course every hiker’s favourite mint cake at Kendal (10 miles). Once you’ve fuelled up, why not go for a long walk or, for an easier ride, take a cruise on the lake at Ullswater (24 miles). The Cumbrian coast, home to rare sea birds and popular seaside resort Grange-over-Sands is only 20 miles away. Take long walks across the sands and mud flats and enjoy more stunning scenery in Arnside and Silverdale, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with diverse wildlife and landscapes. Our accommodation options in the Kentmere Valley also position you perfectly for discovering the neighbouring Yorkshire Dales National Park.
