Lovely cottage with stunning views from the dining table. The kids were so excited about it being an upside down house (bedrooms downstairs and kitchen/living areas upstairs). We also enjoyed watching the owners sheep and Alpacas on their farm opposite. Apart from an enjoyable 8 mile round trip hike to Orton you pretty much have to drive to where yRead moreou want to go but we knew that and enjoy the driving with the beautiful scenery. Hide

We loved our stay at Rayne Cottages! The view was peaceful and spectacular, and the accommodations were cozy and comfortable. The location was ideal, as it was close to the motorway and allowed us to visit and sightsee the surrounding hamlets and towns. Allison (owner) was very friendly and helpful. She allowed us to check in early and let us know Read moreabout the various attractions near by. She was easy to contact if we needed anything. We will definitely be coming back for another holiday.

Due to fencing and gravel outside area probably not best suited to small children. The cottage has everything you could ask for a very comfortable holiday. The owners live across the road and are very helpful ie providing the cot and high chair. The cottage is in the most beautiful countryside with spectacular views. The cottage is central for a loRead moret of different places but you need to get in the car for at least 30 min drive for places to visit, no village or facilities within walking distance. Hide

Location

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
