Fabulous location with amazing views, its very remote which we loved up tiny roads so if you dont want to get away from it all this isnt for you. We loved the remoteness. A huge property which was fabulous for a family to spread out in so lots of space. Utility was a real bonus and fun was had in the hot tub. Master suit with views from the balconyRead more felt very luxurious. Hide

Cottage is in a beautiful setting. Quality of the property is high and we found it provided everything we needed for a weekend stay. Issues, ovens were not working properly and problem with trip switch if using second kitchen ovens. Outside lights not working where the hot tub was situated. Noise from boiler room below bedroom which disturbed guestRead more sleeping. Owners made aware of these issues. Wished we booked a week in order to enjoy accomodation more . Spoiled us for any future weekend breaks Hide

Adventure, memories and awe-inspiring natural beauty await you in the rugged, wild and unique Cumbrian Lake District where beautiful expanses of water merge with magical forests against a backdrop of dramatic mountains and fells.

This ancient land has been sculpted by time and nature and is the newest UNESCO World Heritage Site and the first UK National Park to be awarded this outstanding accolade. Poets, writers and artists throughout the ages have been instinctively drawn here; William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin, to name a few. The attractions and the diverse landscape will not fail to charm the young and the young at heart, whether that be thrill-seeking activities you seek, pure and cathartic inspiration or simply just some relaxation, you will find it here.

Cycling, walking, canoeing, white-water rafting, flying, parachuting and ballooning are just some of the offerings for any level of adrenalin junky. Experience the glory of nature in the wild or in a setting such as the Predator Experience where you can walk with wolves and learn about the importance of conservation. For a complete day of family, enjoy treetop capers at Go-Ape in the Grizedale Forest.

Vibrant towns and villages are there to be discovered, be it by land or water. You can step back in time and enjoy a steamboat cruise on a lake or leisurely unearth the dynamic scene of contemporary art, culture and some of the best dining in the UK by foot, bus or car.

The National Park is an area of breath-taking beauty that will leave you spoilt for choice, refuelled and inspired. So much so that you’ll want to come back time and time again.
