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.

If visiting the Lake District area stay in Lake District cottages, you will be spoilt for choice in the variety of cottages available to rent during your stay. The Lake District covers an area approximately 33 by 40 miles and in this area there are numerous idyllic villages bursting with charming cottages just waiting for you to try out.  When people come to the Lake District area they tend to frequent specific villages such as Ambleside which have their fair share of cottages. But if you look further afield and spend just a little more time looking you can find some unbelievable hidden gems just waiting to be picked.
There are many different styles of Lake District cottages available that will suit everyone’s taste whether it is small, quaint and even modern. Some cottages will even allow you to bring your prized family pet allowing all of the family to enjoy a Lake District holiday.
Many of the Lake District cottages are run by people who live in the area and they are only too willing to go that extra mile in providing you with a top class service during your stay. Many owners are willing to provide any requests you may have during your holiday. It is possible to have grocery packs and welcome packs delivered to your holiday cottage before your arrival. Just inform your preferred accommodation owner of any requests that you may require.
Many of the cottages will be equipped with all the modern technologies of the day such as satellite television, DVD players, games consoles even IPod docks. If you look well enough you can find Lake District cottages which come with home cinemas and hot tubs which can be an added bonus when holidaying in the UK due to the uncertainty of the weather.
The style of Lake District cottages can vary from old farmhouses with rustic charm and old beams to cottages on working farms and cottages on the edge of lakes such as Lake Windermere and Ullswater. The added benefits of staying in a Lake District cottage that is adjacent to a lake is that you have sports and activities readily available on your doorstep.
Lake district cottages give you the benefit of self catering but also the laundry facilities that would not be available in bed and breakfasts and hotels which is great for visitors coming with children and for those wanting to take part in sports available in the Lakes, which may be a bit messy such as windsurfing, pony trekking, fishing and walking.
A Lake District cottage is a venue that should be on the top of your list if you are looking for a picturesque setting or just somewhere to escape the stress and strain of urban living, unwind and enjoy with all of your family.
There are many popular tourist destinations in the United Kingdom but none are quite as idyllic as the Lake District. It´s lush, unforgiving valleys and serene lakes are a testament of the great beauty that England has to offer. The area is so picturesque that hundreds of couples choose it each year to be the place of memory where they can seal their vows and promise each other eternal love. Apart from the romantic side that the district clearly has to offer, there are a large number of activities that people of all ages can embark on. Whatever the circumstance, it is important to first consider accommodation, and what could be better than deciding on a quaint Lake District cottage.

A Pleasant Place

People often choose the Lakes as a holiday destination because it offers respite from the usual distractions that plague us on a daily basis. That is why it is often the wiser choice to select a self catering Lake District cottage as opposed to staying in a hotel or B & B. Whether you are a couple, family or group of friends, there is a large selection of authentically styled cottages that will suit the occasion; many of which are situated near popular mountain trails and rustic towns that exude a sense of ancient culture. The advantage of choosing a cottage to come back to is that you won´t need to go out in order to experience a pleasant evening if you choose; and when morning comes, it will be possible to step out into your own garden and admire the splendour while you consider the day´s plans.

Exquisite Accommodation

While many people would imagine staying in a cottage an old fashioned experience, many Lake District cottages are in fact a fine blend of vintage architecture and modern style. With options available from two bedrooms right up to 7 bedrooms or more, it is possible to find a cottage that is suitable not only for the occasion but for your budget as well. The majority of cottages will contain a state of the art kitchen with a family table which would finally make cooking for many seem like a treat. For those who plan to make the journey in winter months, there are cosy fireplaces installed in each cottage to ensure that its occupants will be able to remain warm and comfortable. With the large selection of Lake District cottages available, both modest and prestige, choosing one will be an experience in itself.

A Treat for Everyone

Anyone who has visited the Lakes has left with fond memories and a wish to one day return. Being the north of England, the people are always friendly and hospitable. The many towns that dot the Cumbrian countryside each contain a unique atmosphere and also offer cuisine of all types. The views are always majestic with the many lakes that give the district its name, and with activities ranging from paragliding and quad biking, to mountain climbing or simply visiting cultural art museums; there is something available for anyone. When considering your next “rest stop”, why not discover the lakes?
