Stay by the lakeside in our Lake District waterside cottages to rent
Wake up in one of our lakeside holiday cottages and enjoy immersing yourself in the spectacular scenery of Cumbria from the moment you open the curtains. Gaze out across the still waters of Derwentwater, Ullswater, Lake Windermere or Coniston Water, for example, all set against the beautiful backdrop of the national park’s magical mountains and hills. You’ll find lakeside cottages in the Lake District to suit the specific requirements of your party, whether you are seeking self-catering accommodation for your family or a larger group of friends. Discover romantic retreats to suit you and your partner, as well as dog-friendly lakeside cottages to rent where your furry friend is also welcome with open paws.
From all our waterside cottages in the Lake District, whether they are set above a large body of water or nestling on the shores of one of the smaller tarns, you will be able to explore your stunning surroundings on foot. Stroll beside the magical lakes and embark upon walks across fells and through hills and woodland. Indulge in water sports, such as rowing, canoeing, kayaking or paddleboarding and make the most of the fantastic opportunities for wildlife watching. Take a cruise out on Lake Windermere or Coniston Water, or a steamer on Ullswater to Pooley Bridge, Howtown, Glenridding or Aira Force. You can even try your hand at a spot of fishing. Explore nearby towns and villages such as Grasmere, Ambleside, Kendal and Keswick, where you can buy tasty local produce and dine out in restaurants offering traditional Cumbrian menus.
