Weekend and Mid Week Short Breaks
During September and October many people choose to take a weekend or mid-week short break. It is a time when the fells are quieter and the scenery more stunning. You can take a 3 or 4 night break in many of our Lake District cottages from now until October 18 (subject to availability). Check out our properties available for short break here.
Self Catering Holiday Cottages in the Lake District
Choose from our varied selection of Lake District cottages in the northern Lakes in Cumbria. Our self catering, holiday accommodation in the Lake District includes farmhouses, apartments, bungalows, family houses, converted barns, large houses set within their own grounds, as well as white-washed, traditional cottages. Our properties are located in towns and villages such as Grange-in-Borrowdale, Rosthwaite, Seatoller, Braithwaite, Bassenthwaite, Keswick, Ambleside and in valleys such as Borrowdale and the Vale of Lorton.
A number of our holiday properties have open coal fires or log burning stoves and many of our properties are pet and dog friendly. We also have a growing number that have free internet access. With such a wide range of self-catering accommodation, you should find something to meet your needs.
One of the main attractions of the Lake District are the fells popularized by Alfred Wainwright in his seven volume collection of walks to all 214 Lakeland summits. If you are really looking to stretch yourself then perhaps the Bob Graham Round is for you. This is a 72 mile run taking in 42 of the highest peaks in 24 hours. Others come for the climbing and bouldering - with the dramatic scenery adding to the appeal. Outdoor activities are not limited to the fells - you can take to the water and enjoy sailing or windsurfing on Derwentwater. Alternatively, you can take on the challenge of mountain biking across some of England's most rugged terrain.
The Lake District is an all-year round holiday destination full of attractions and activities to suit all ages. Visitors can enjoy a walk through the stunning gardens at Leven’s Hall or Muncaster Castle, travel on the La’al Ratty miniature railway, visit Keswick’s famous Pencil Museum, enjoy a visit to The World of Beatrix Potter or sit back and enjoy the scenery whilst sailing on an Ullswater Steamer.
