“What a wonderful place” On behalf of the whole family, six of us, we would like the thank Helen for allowing us the use of her fantastic home and for being so helpful when booking. As a family we have loved Keswick for the last 30 years but in this cul de sac and with the views from the upper lounge we will be back. Keswick and the surrounding area has so much to offer, even our two teenaged granddaughters were pleasantly surprised. The family's highlight of the week was to get within a metre of three red squirrels.

“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?

“Beautiful cottage in a perfect setting!” My boyfriend and I spent a few days in Bridge cottage just after New Year. We loved our stay there, it is easy walking distance into town whilst being out of the way down a quiet dead end road. The river is right next to the property and as the weather was sadly against us during our stay, we spent a lot of our time just enjoying relaxing in the cottage. The parking allocation is great, right next to the property. There are also many footpaths right on the doorstep which we would love to return to and explore. WE are hoping to visit again (in the summer next time) and explore the area further.

“Another fantastic holiday” Returning for the 3rd time we had the most fantastic 2 weeks at Moss Eccles Tarn. It really is a home from home, so well equipped and comfortable, you just settle in straight away. Lovely location on the site, great for going off for walks, you really don't have to take the car out, there is so much on the door step. Kids and dogs loved it, and we got to unwind. So many things to do nearby, we still haven't exhausted the area, so will definitely be back!! Thank you Susan for all your help with the booking too!

The hot tub is the icing on the cake I can’t recommend this lodge enough and I’m not sure you will find a better one on White cross Bay. Thanks for letting us book your lodge and we would certainly consider staying here again

“Great hosts and a great stay” We used the cottage as a base for a festival in the area, and it was a perfect choice. Peaceful spot and the cottage is comfortable and full of character. The couple who run it are great and even came out late to pick us up when we got a little stranded one night! And as an added bonus it's a working farm so there are fresh eggs in the morning! Highly recommend as a base for exploring the area.

“Superb location and accomodation” There was ample space for the family of 5, with all the things you would need for a holiday. Very quiet and peaceful location, which is just what we wanted. We made 3 walks straight from the door. The walk to Hawkshead is mainly off the road with good views of the lake, we made it several times for shopping at the Coop. We especially enjoyed late afternoon and evening games on the terrace. Reversing into the drive is a good test of ones driving skills, you can always park at the park just up the road. The only complaints were from the children, the internet was slow (not the owners fault) and the TVs were "awful"... but who wants internet and TV on holiday :) Would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to get away from it all and have peace and quiet.

“Very comfortable bungalow, quiet location, beautiful garden and lovely views” Lothlorien is a very comfortable, well equipped bungalow set in a lovely spacious garden with a summerhouse. It is within 20 mins drive of Lake Windermere, is about 4 miles from Cartmel and is a short walk to the promenade path leading to Grange Over Sands with a variety of interesting shops and cafes. The owners David and Pam were very friendly and could not do enough for us and the information provided in the bungalow about the area was excellent, in our time of renting we have only met the owners on two occasions. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed as a family and there I made good use of the Summerhouse to disappear for a quiet read. The beds were the most comfortable I've slept in. The bungalow also has a lovely modern spacious bathroom. During our time at Lothlorien we visited the South lakes, Morecambe, Keswick, Derwent Water, Hawkshead, Windermere and Coniston as well as taking the sea road from Ulverston to Barrow on a wet afternoon where we discovered Piel Castle. We also attended Masquepony Festival at Cartmel which my 15 year old daughter found very entertaining. An ideal location for visiting the Lake District in more comfortable surroundings would be difficult to find. For the majority of the holiday the sun shone and the beautiful surrounding were a pleasure to visit. I look forward to coming back to the Lake District and Lothlorien in the future. I have been asked to provide a comment on what could be better - regarding the bungalow there is nothing other than access to a washing line (though my husband says if anything sits still for long enough it gets washed) and just for information only, Grange Over Sands has very little for teenagers, though that was not a problem in the case of my daughter as we travelled out daily. Regarding Holiday Lettings, it was not possible to book the dates I wanted from Monday to Monday - these dates were only offered as 2 short breaks - Monday to Friday and Friday to Monday. With the agreement and help of David and Pam we were accepted for the dates we needed and experienced a lovely holiday.

“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!

“Great base to explore the Lakes” Longthwaite was perfect for me and a group of friends as a base to go walking & cycling around Borrowdale. As Tim (the owner) says, it doesn't have all the mod cons, but it's full of character, has plenty of room and a fantastic wood burning stove! The location is excellent - very close to the river, walking distance to nearby pubs and you have immediate access to many walking routes without the need to drive. We loved it and will definitely be back for a future visit!

“Wonderful vacation cottage!” What a lovely cottage. The owner was fabulous to work with...from reservations to directions ..she was excellent at communicating with us. The cottage was immaculately clean when we arrived and well furnished. It is located in a nice village and we had no problems finding parking in front of the cottage. The cottage is located on a steep hill and has steep narrow steps so might prevent issues for those with limited mobility or very small children. However, I do have arthritic knees and still found the top floor room and its lovely view worth the climb to sleep up there rather than on the 1st floor. There are no toilets on the ground floor so the stairs are not avoidable. The owner contacted us prior to arrival to ask about gates for the stairs as they can be installed for younger children. I would not hesitate to stay in this cottage again if we return to the area for a holiday.

Cumbria holidays

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.


With its inspiring scenery, wealth of activities and relaxed pace of life, the Lake District is a fabulous staycation destination for families. Renting a cottage or log cabin gives you all the flexibility and space of your own home and sets you up perfectly to enjoy England's most picturesque landscape.

Why Cumbria?

Are you up for an outdoor adventure? Booking your holiday rental in Cumbria gives you the chance to make the most out of the rolling hills, stunning scenery and tranquil lakes. Pick yours today before they all go!

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.

Top Cumbria travel tips

Come to a holiday rental in Cumbria and embrace the great outdoors! You'll never have another trip like it.

Manesty House Keswick
so close to town centre and still away from all noise. Loved it.

There arent many properties like this in the town centre. Many mountain ranges are visible directly from the property. Many walks start from the house itself. only 5 to 7 mins walk to the town centre. Parking is not an issue. The website states two parking spaces but actually you can park 3 cars easily. We didnt use cycle but there is shed behind the property and I think cycles can easily fit in there. Prices are quite competitive and I guess its only low because new in the market and will not stay low.see more

Lothlorien - With Bay Views and Pet Friendly
Lovely break

Had a lovely few days break here ,the bungalow has great amenities.Really comfortable beds and lovely bathroom and kitchen.Accommodation was so cozy and warm with amazing views over the bay from the lounge and the double bedroom.The garden is beautiful and fully enclosed which was perfect having brought our dog with us. Theres a nice easy walk into Grange over sands that starts literally on the doorstep,or you can hop on the train ,the station is a 5 minute walk and train running every hour during December. David could not have made us more welcome,tea, coffee and milk waiting for us on arrival and the box of delicious cup cakes was such a nice gesture.David was very helpful in sharing his knowledge of the local area so we were able to enjoy some lovely scenic walks. This is such a beautiful part of the country , we will definitely return here and would highly recommend Lothlorien for anyone looking for a lovely homely base to stay.see more
Chapel House Cottage
Great long weekend

We had a great long weekend away at Chapel Cottage. The cottage is very tidy with great views over the countryside from both the downstairs front room & even more so from the master bedroom. Our young boys loved exploring in the garden & we enjoyed relaxing in the evenings in front of the open fire. Thank you to Sharu for our stay, she communicated with us before & during the stay to ensure we had everything we needed. We will definitely return and recommend to friends and family.see more
