Holiday Cottages – Lake District

While Cumbria has a wide variety of high quality hotels with excellent service the self-catering sector is far from neglected. Lake District holiday cottages are available for rental throughout the county.

Many of these Lake District cottages go back a long way and provided homes for shepherds, miners and other workers in the hills over several centuries. Others are more recent conversions from agricultural buildings while some have been purpose-built as holiday accommodation.

Precise definition of holiday “cottages” in the Lake District is not a simple matter. They can range from substantial four and five ensuite-bedroom properties to 1-bed terraced houses. As a result they cater for a wide range of holiday needs, from large extended family groups wanting space to socialise to solo holiday makers and couples who simply want somewhere to crash out after a day in the hills and a meal at the local pub. Some come with stylish furnishing and 4-poster beds while others are basic but crisp and clean.

Many holiday cottages in the Lake District are rented out directly by their owners who may have just one or two properties to look after, although many private owners put the administration in the hands of booking agencies. Some of these rental organisations also own large numbers of properties themselves, including national organisations with holiday cottage properties, either owned or managed, in other parts of the country as well as the Lake District.

Your ideal Lake District cottage may be different from other people’s. Everyone has their own set of preferences. You may be looking for a remote spot close to your favourite walks into the heights of the hills, somewhere down by the water of a lake, a convenient base near an outdoor pursuits centre, or a comfy bed right in the middle of a busy village close to the tearooms. Cumbrian cottages available for holiday rental are to be found in every type of setting.
