The Cumbria/Lake District
With its breathtaking mountain scenery, beautiful lakes and picturesque villages, the Lake District is a paradise, not only for outdoor enthusiasts but for anyone who loves peace and beauty.
The changing seasons bring with them different highlights. In Spring observe baby lambs, bouncing around Wordsworth's Daffodils; laze about by a lake in Summer, after walking amongst the fells; watch the beautiful colours appear in Autumn, whilst hopefully enjoying an Indian Summer and Winter boasts cold frosty days, warm snug evenings and sitting in front of an open fire with a large glass of wine.
The beautiful lakes with dramatic fells rising from their shores are just part of a great experience. The Lake District offers excellent local food, beer and fantastic activities that make a holiday here live long in the memory.
The village of Ravenglass dates back to Roman times as it formed a great natural harbour and there are still ruins to explore. It is the starting point for the famous Ravenglass & Eskdale steam railway, which makes a leisurely seven-mile trip to the Eskdale Valley. If you are feeling energetic a walk or cycle back is fantastic over Muncaster Fell.
There are two pubs in the village and the Pennington Hotel & Restaurant (open to non residents), all of which are within a five-minute walk. Just outside the village there is Muncaster Castle Gardens and Owl Centre which is a great visit for both adults and children.
The village shop and post office sells a variety of food and newspapers and the Ratty Shop sells gifts and crafts, as well as a comprehensive range of maps and guides. There is reasonable mobile reception on the beach and in certain parts of the property.

"Lovely cottage and location"
The cottage was spotless and very well equipped. It was so nice sitting looking out the window at the sea but a little too cool in October to make use of the patio area. The beds were very comfortable… More
