The Lake District

The Lake District offers walks in abundance, stunning scenery at any time of year and a huge number of tourist attractions within easy reach.

For walkers/ cyclists, we are close to the lakes of Ennerdale Water, Loweswater and Crummock and the associated mountains. Buttermere, Wastwater and Bassenthwaite are also within easy reach.

For those wishing to sightsee, there are numerous places of interest, too many to mention here. 5 minutes drive away is the Market town of Cockermouth-birthplace of the poet William Wordsworth which is well worth a visit. Travel south to Muncaster Castle and the 'Laal Ratty' (a minature steam train which takes passengers through the Eskdale Valley)- both an excellent day out for families with children of any age. On the coast, there are the towns of Whitehaven and Maryport, both important ports in Georgian/Victorian times and host to interesting attractions such as The Beacon and an Aquarium.


The beautiful market town of Cockermouth, birthplace of Wordsworth has a large a varied choice of eateries including pubs and restaurants.

Tours of the Jennings brewery are available and a visit to the Toy museum is a must for children of all ages.

Serious walkers/hikers will enjoy the peaks of Great Gable and ScaFell Pike, whilst those wishing to take in the countryside in a less strenuous way can enjoy walks around the local lakes of Derwent Water and Basenthwaite Lake and through the forest parks of Whinlatter and Dodd Wood (near Bassethwaite).

The solway coast is close by- we have some fantastic beaches in Cumbria and good conditions for surfing too.

There are numerous things for families to see and do- in fine or wet weather since the climate does tend to be quite unpredictable !

"Comfortable accommodation in perfectly peaceful surroundings"

My family and I stayed at Croft House Barn for a long weekend. The barn was clean, warm and comfortable with plenty space for all 9 of us and our dogs. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and we never tired of just sitting on the patio taking it all in. We are already discussing re-booking in the near future.

"space and relaxation"

"Probably the best Lakes holiday cottage we've stayed in..."

...and we've stayed in a lot. This is a proper family holiday house with loads of books, games, and owls, and it felt like home after about five minutes. The house manages to be both cosy and enormous enough for children to play without disturbing the grown ups or messing up the bedrooms. Located close to our favourite bits of the Lakes (Keswick, Borrowdale, St Bees) but away from the holiday traffic. Cockermouth is only a few minutes away for shopping etc. and there are nice short walks around the village for smaller children/tired parents. Can't wait to go back.
