“eighteen years and counting....” We enjoyed our eighteenth stay at Ash Gill, and that should be a good endorsement of itself. We are all keen walkers, and Ash Gill provides superb access to the surrounding fells. The village has two pubs and it is great to stroll to one - in two minutes - for good beer, wines and food, after a rewarding day outside. The house facilities are good, recently updated, and our hosts invariably helpful. How long can we keep going?

“An idyllic and beautifully set out large cottage - the perfect place for Christmas” Ings was a stunning place to spend a week with our 3 young children and extended family. With 2 well laid out lounges, a fully functioning well equipped kitchen, huge oven and separate yet attached dining room gave us all the space we needed. High standard of bedrooms, separate utility enabled us to stay on top of all washing/drying and keep wet walking clothing out of the main house. Plenty of parking, cottage up your very own lane! Lovely front garden to play in and perfectly situated for walks around the area. Local pub fantastic food and good walk back to relax! Upstairs lounge provided the perfect haven for Christmas morning and log burner and open fire in lounges provided a very cosy atmosphere. We all loved our week and hope to visit again!

“Amazing Christmas away” Wow this is a beautiful lodge we have just spent 24th-27 December and loved every minuet. The views are beautiful waking up to badgers and deers outside the bedroom window. The pub on site was lovely and was made to feel very welcome. It's only a short drive to Windermere lake which was ideal as my son loves fishing. The lodge itself was very clean and well equipped.Thank you to Bash and Donna for our cards and gifts the little one enjoyed them . Look forward to booking again

“Fantastic property - would definitely return.” We booked our long weekend away quite late on but the whole booking process was quick and easy. On arrival at the property, we were so happy to have chosen San Ging. The property is very spacious, well equipped and, not only stunning inside, but has amazing views from the living room and kitchen. We could not have wished for more. The weather was cold but very sunny and we completed some lovely long walks around Derwent water. We had some very tasty meals in Keswick and the taxi in and out of the village was only £3. A great weekend in an amazing property.

“Perfect Location for Team Building” A group of 12 work colleagues stayed at the house for a Team Building event in the Lake District. We deceided on a house rather than staying at hotels as it not only allowed us to be together as a group in the evenings but it also worked out at a fraction of the cost of 12 rooms in a hotel for 2 nights. The house itself has many large rooms and whilst there was 12 of us in there, it never seemed cramped or crowded. We could all easily sit in the lounge, but also the upstairs pool room with TV and Sofas was great to get together in the evenings, with amazing views over Morecambe Bay. In addition there were several areas where people who needed to work quietly could do so, without being disturbed by the bigger group. Ross Accomodation were also very flexible with us for arrival and departure times to fit in with peoples early arrivals, but also for us to have a meeting on the last day before we left. With broadband Internet and the Huge dining table, we were as effective as any meeting room in the office! The bedroom accomodation was also excellent, once we found all the rooms tucked around the house. Many of the rooms were ensuite, with steam showers and Jacuzzi baths around the house as well. Outside the gardens were huge with covered areas for the Bar B Que, and also a Table tennis table and a trampoline! We cooked outside both nights we were there even though it was late September, the covered areas giving good shelter. The neighbours were far enough away thet you would not disturb them talking in the garden. Overall an excellent environment for the event, we shall definitely be recommending it to other colleagues to do the same.

“Gorgeous cottage in a stunning location” This is the second time that we have stayed at Rose Cottage although we have been visiting the area for 7 years. The cottage is exceptionally well equipped and the furnishings are lovely. The wood burning stove is delightful after a long day out on the fells. The Crown Inn offers good beer, lovely home cooked food and friendly locals. We already cannot wait to go back.

“Great Stay” We had a great stay for a week in July. We had a great lodge with a hot tub which the kids loved. Limefitt Park is a beautiful area with a good park for kids and one for dogs. The Haybarn Inn serves lovely food and great area for kids with games to play, pool and some fruit machines. Ideal to spot to reach Windermere & Bowness. Also not far from Kendal, Ampleside etc. They are some lovely walks which suit dogs and kids. Pictures of Limefitt. Horses opp our lodge.

“Breathtaking!” The boathouse really is unique and special! Myself and my partner spent three nights in the boathouse which really was the best trip we have been on. The view from the windows are breathtaking. The binoculars provided made it even better to see the stunning views of the lake. Upon arrival there were rose petals, chocolates and champagne which were a lovely touch. The boathouse is in a great location - 10 minute drive from Penrith where there are superstores and about 40 minutes from Lake Windermere. The boathouse itself is immaculate and is a home away from home. The amenities are outstanding - there is everything in the boathouse you could need. The DVD selection is also very good! Jayne was extremely helpful and friendly and she went above and beyond with the information she provided before the trip. I highly recommend the boathouse - you will be left with the amazing memories that we are!

“Perfect lake district retreat” Brilliant! Perfect for our large Labrador dog. The garden was safe and spacious. The Dairy is very deceptive as it is much bigger than the photos feel. There was a welcome jug of milk in the fridge as well as biscuits, tea and coffee. The log burner was all made up ready too. We will definitely be rebooking for a whole week next year. The staff at the hall were very friendly and were very helpful when I locked myself out too! Very impressed and good value for money. Just the right sort of accommodation for a walking holiday.

Cottages and log cabins in the Lake District

If you're looking to experience the most magnificent natural scenery England has to offer, you can't go wrong with the Lake District. Book a rural retreat, like a charming cottage or log cabin, to really make the most of your time in this spectacular landscape.

Breathtaking natural beauty

The Lake District's lush fells and valleys are scattered with small villages; charming clusters of cottages in a landscape that hasn't changed in centuries. Why not choose a cosy cottage in one of these quiet rural communities as your base? Or a secluded log cabin to put you right in the heart of the area's natural beauty?

Explore the 16 lakes, meres and tarns scattered across the county and you'll see cottages nestled on the shore with unparalleled views over the water. But if you prefer the atmosphere and amenities of a market town, you're still spoilt for choice with picturesque options like Keswick, Ambleside and Penrith.

Things to do in the Lake District

If you're seeking the classic Lake District experience, head to Lake Windermere. Here, you can take a boat trip on the water while marvelling at the magnificent peaks surrounding you. There are plenty of holiday homes dotted along the shore in pretty spots such as Bowness-on-Windermere.

Nearby Ullswater doesn't disappoint, either, with plenty of pebbled bays along the lakeside to stop for a picnic and skim some stones across the water. While you're there, don't miss the spectacular waterfalls of Aira Force; with ample parking and a variety of walks, it's the perfect place for a family trip.

Speaking of family trips, one of the most popular attractions is The World of Beatrix Potter. This centre celebrates Peter Rabbit author Beatrix Potter and all the work she did to preserve the land and livelihood of the Lake District.

Inspiration

With its inspiring scenery, wealth of activities and relaxed pace of life, the Lake District is a fabulous staycation destination for families.

About Cumbria

On the northernmost point of England, Cumbria is one of the largest counties in the country. However, you won't find many built up areas here. Most of the landscape has been left untouched by developers and builders, and lets nature flourish within its borders.

With such an abundance of nature and peacefulness, it's no surprise that lots of artists and authors have come here to try their craft. William Wordsworth, John Ruskin, Beatrix Potter and Ken Russell were all inspired by this magnificent area.

What to do

For something a little different, try the Predator Experience in Cartmel. Choose the creature or creatures you want to interact with and spend a day learning about them. There are bird of prey falconry days, reptile and mammal experiences and you can even go walking with wolves!

There are several waterfalls throughout this part of the Lake District, so why not climb up and see one? Aira Force in Penrith is spectacular.

Pip's Hideaway - Roe Deer Cottages - 1 Bed Cottage - Log Burner - Dog Friendly
Great Place to Stay

The location is super quiet. The amenities are fantastic, a big bed and bed room, a wonderful bathroom, big room upstairs which includes kitchen, lounge and dining. It really helped to have a washing machine and parking. We had a great time at this cottage and would recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the Lakes District. The owner was great, easy to contact and very responsive to our questions. The only thing we struggled with was the one car road access to the cottage.see more
