Holiday cottages (21462)

Get away from it all and enjoy the luscious scenery of a secluded countryside setting by booking one of these fabulous cosy holiday cottages. Choose from country cottages in England, tranquil gites in France and cottages in Wales with log fires and breathtaking views.


You may prefer to visit the splendid country of Ireland and stay in a traditional Irish cottage - enjoying long leisurely walks before soaking up the Celtic atmosphere in great local pubs. Alternatively, choose a Scottish lodge by a loch or in the mountains and relax as you marvel at the beauty of the great outdoors.


For the more adventurous, look further afield and enjoy the serenity of a country cottage in a hidden overseas location. Pick somewhere in a peaceful forest or mountain setting and enjoy long walks or energetic bike rides.

This fabulous family residence (also a treat for several couples) offers views to Lake Windermere from its slightly elevated position, amid wonderful scenery. A private drive meanders up to the house and guarantees a little bit of exclusivity for you and your gathering. Yet, being just a short stroll from the attractions of Bowness and Lake Windermere, Woodbank is right at the heart of some of the best the region has to offer. Guests of ages will never be short of entertainment. Blending old Lakeland character with modern sophistication, Woodbank offers large bedrooms, luxurious furniture and the most wonderful dining room - perfect for sitting down to a good meal prepared in the traditional Aga! Alternatively, go al-fresco for your meals with great views from the patio and garden. Accommodation in detail: Private parking for 3 cars. Conservatory entrance with a wonderful view, entrance hall with cloakroom. Spacious, light and airy lounge with walls of windows overlooking the lake and deep-cushioned leather sofas. The dining room has beautiful views and the well-equipped kitchen is warmed through by the Aga. Upstairs are 3 beautiful bedrooms, with good views and co-coordinated linens; 1 with brand spanking new en-suite facility. There is also a luxurious main bathroom. Both have shower over bath. Outside, you have a garden and patio - furnished for meals and lazing al-fresco. Location The sophisticated Lake District village of Bowness is nestled on the eastern shores of beautiful Lake Windermere - England's largest lake. Boats peacefully come and go, the mesmerising scenery across the lake changes with the season, and the abundance of lake shore and waterborne activities will keep everybody entertained. Bowness high street is well-served with handy supermarkets, sophisticated boutique shops and a wide range of excellent eateries - all within easy reach of your chosen holiday home. The Royalty cinema plays the latest films on its 3-screens and the Old Laundry Theatre also has plenty of entertainment to offer. Outdoor lovers will enjoy having easy access to many popular Lake District walking routes. Head up to Gummers How to admire stunning views of Lake Windermere, or take the car ferry across the lake to walk around attractive Hawkshead and explore Beatrix Potter country (the author's home is close to Hawkshead in the village of Near Sawrey). Grizedale Forest is easily accessible via the car ferry, and popular walking destinations including the Langdale Valley, Coniston and Grasmere are only manageable drives away.
