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

A Video Tour Of The Lake District
If you have yet to visit the Lake District, then why not start by watching our little film. An 11 minute movie, it gets to essence of this beautiful landscape.
Shot by Jack Serginson and Ollie Gough, the movie shows why our stunning area is the No1 holiday destination.
We want you to truly have a relaxing time and unwind during your stay. We have teamed up with My Personal Sanctuary who offer 5 star quality organic massage and treatments, carried out in the comfort of your holiday home.
To add to the relaxed mood why not order a delicious meal from Clare Boissier, a Prue Leith-trained chef with over 20 years experience and will work throughout the county, Debby Bainbridge in the North Lakes or Lucy’s of Ambleside in South Lakes.

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.
