Escape to this beautifully finished Georgian farmhouse and discover the rejuvenating power of the Lake District. Set on the outskirts of the village of Killington, famous for its pele tower that dates back to the 1400s, this spacious cottage makes a tranquil haven for large groups of family and friends. Sleeping ten guests across five elegant bedrooms, it's the perfect location to explore the perfectly preserved villages of Kirkby Lonsdale, Kendal and Staveley.

Step inside this magnificent country house and savour the lavish interior. From the main lounge's rustic wood burner to the wooden beams of the dining room, this cottage oozes comfort and class. Prepare a hearty homecooked meal in the well-equipped kitchen or let the warmth of the snug inspire your next adventure. After a day of exploring the rising fells of the Lake District, enjoy a long hot bath before sinking into one of the property's five flexible bedrooms which can be made up to accommodate all manner of guests. Step through the conservatory and out into the fabulous garden to drink in the unparalleled Cumbrian countryside. Then feast together around the charcoal BBQ and while away the evening with stories and laughter.

Described by Alfred Wainwright as 'a herd of sleeping elephants' the Howgills lie in slumber for every visitor. This small triangle of hills drawn between Sedbergh, Kirkby and Tebay boasts spectacular views of both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Be sure to visit Cautley Spout (10 miles), considered to be the highest waterfall in England, for a serene day out. Closer to home, take a leisurely stroll along the river to the fabulous vista at Ruskin's View. Or travel 7.5 miles to Kendal, a town alive with heritage, arts, culture and fabulous cuisine.

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.
