Autumn Breaks in the Lake District

Autumn in lakeland is a wonderful time to visit and stay in a Lake District holiday cottage. As the days shorten and the air becomes crisp, and the night sky offers a star filled canopy, the leaves on the trees turn to glorious reds and golds, reflecting in mirror like waters, offering a sight spectacular.

Explore our lakeshores, follow trails by foot or bike through our majestic forests and climb through crisp air to the peaks of England’s highest fells and mountains.

At days end what better than return to one of our quality Lake District Cottages and tuck up around a roaring log fire, or maybe step out and dine at one of the many fine and welcoming pubs and restaurants.

To find your perfect Lake District holiday cottage, many now with special offers, and create your own golden memories, simply use the search box to check for live availability and see all of our special autumn offers and discounts.

New Property - Introducing Thorphinsty Barn - Cartmel Fell

Who Are We - A little Bit About Our Company

about us

Clare & John Serginson

During our early careers in the advertising industry, based in London, we loved coming to the Lake District to refresh and recharge. The contrast between the buzz of London and the serenity and sheer majestic beauty of the lakes and mountains a real tonic. With long walks during the day, simply taking in the landscape, returning to a cosy cottage or hotel for the evening we could think of nothing or anywhere more perfect. 

In 1993 we decided to move to the Lake District for a whole new life, with an idea of  creating our own cottage agency, one different from others, one that would offer visitors an exceptional experience, where quality not numbers mattered. 

We hoped our skills, John a still life photographer and Clare head of various Ad Agency print and art buying departments, would benefit home owners and holidaymakers, presenting holiday homes in an exciting manner, along with lots of information about the area, the attractions and just why, like us, once visited you to will fall in love with this unique part of England. Come - enjoy.
