The Cumbria/Lake District

The Lake District conjures up images of magnificent mountains and shimmering lakes and that is exactly what visitors find here. In fact the whole county of Cumbria is home to some of Britain's most beautiful scenery. This region has been a favourite all year round holiday destination for years and apart from its natural beauty it's also packed with lots of attractions and activities that cater for every kind of holidaymaker, from family holidays to romantic breaks for couples and from those who are looking for lots of activities and sports to those that prefer more gentle country pursuits. The Lake District National Park lies at the heart of Cumbria and contains well known and much loved holiday destinations such as Windermere, Bowness, Ambleside, Coniston and Grasmere, here there are lots of charming Lakeland villages to discover and visitor attractions for all the family. The northern and western lakes have miles of untouched natural rugged beauty and rural villages as well as being home to the historic northern lakes town of Keswick with its many shops, pubs and restaurants; providing a great holiday base. Other areas to discover include the Eden Valley, Cartmel peninsula, south east Cumbria and the Carlisle and Hadrian's Wall area; all equally beautiful and very handy for day trips into the lakes.


Ambleside is one of the most popular towns in the Lake District. At the foot of the Kirkstone Pass and the gateway to the Langdales it is surrounded by beautiful scenery and is the perfect location for any Lakeland holiday. The town has a number of shops, pubs and visitor attractions as well as easy access to Grasmere, Kendal and Windermere. There are countless walks that can be enjoyed from the town both easy and strenuous! Be sure to visit Stockghyll Force, a spectacular 70ft waterfall just a short walk from the town centre. For a more adventurous ramble you can trek to the summit of Jenkins Crag for fabulous views of Ambleside.

"It ticked all the boxes"

All six adults, a 3 yr old and 18 month old were happy. Our rooms were spacious. Plenty of bathrooms and privacy. The two living rooms downstairs gave us space to do our own thing. The kitchen was well appointed. We enjoyed every day. Ambleside is a charming place and Treacle cottage was just what we needed.
