Lake district cottages vary greatly in location and character. Whether your looking for oak beams and peace and quiet, modern and lively, or a last minute lake district cottage, you’re sure to find your ideal accommodation here.

Times have moved on in the Lakes, we are aware that our accommodation offerings have to move with the times so you will find contemporary “boutique” cottages as well as the more basic level so you don’t have to give up the creature comforts of home when you come to visit us.

One aspect of the Lakes Cottage market that has moved on is the services available. There are companies now that will prepare meals and deliver them to your cottage so after a day out you can relax in the knowledge that you don’t have to spend time shopping for food.

When you make an enquiry or a booking, please let them know that you found them on Discover The Lakes, and if you’d like to provide us with feedback on your stay, let us know at our contact us page.
