Lake District Cottages

Stay in one of our Lake District cottages and immerse yourself in the beauty and tranquillity of the English Lake District. Relaxing by an open fire after a day on the fells is just one of the many reasons and rewards of a self-catering Lakeland holiday. In truth, there are many reasons why people visit the Lake District, and return year after year.

Holiday Cottages for Everyone

At Lakeland Cottage Holidays we aim to cater for all tastes and budgets. Our self-catering holiday homes are located throughout the northern Lake District, centred around Keswick.

Cottages In Keswick

Our Keswick cottages come in all shapes and sizes. Amongst our selection of Lake District cottages in Keswick you will find bungalows, apartments, detached and terraced family houses, as well as quaint and charming traditional cottages. Discover more about our Keswick cottages here. 

Further afield, our holiday cottages can be found in the neighbouring villages and valleys, including Borrowdale, Bassenthwaite and Braithwaite.

Farmhouses and Barns

Our portfolio of holiday properties includes a selection of traditional farmhouses and converted barns, suitable for large families and groups. Our farmhouses and barns are full of character and charm, and although they are traditional they are equipped with all the comforts of home including washing machines, dishwashers and WiFi.

Cottages Welcoming Pets

We have a varied selection of pet friendly cottages scattered across the northern Lakes. Whilst the majority will allow one or two dogs, we have a few holiday properties that welcome three or four dogs. Explore our selection of pet friendly cottages here.

Villages and Hamlets

Much of our holiday accommodation is located in the smaller villages and hamlets that surround Keswick. You can choose between the villages of Bassenthwaite and Braithwaite, or holiday in the quieter, picturesque hamlets of Grange, Rosthwaite and Seatoller in Borrowdale. Derwent Farmhouse in Grange is a particularly popular Cumbrian farmhouse that backs on to the River Derwent as it wends its way through Borrowdale.

Not Just Lakes

The Lake District is best known for its beauty but it is so much more than just the landscape. Cumbria and the Lake District is a thriving community of local businesses, farms, attractions, sporting events and cultural treats.

A Destination For a Relaxing Holiday

Keswick is a great choice for a relaxing and restorative holiday break. Its pedestrianised main square, provides visitors with a safe environment in which to enjoy a day of shopping. Many of the shops, cafes and pubs surrounding the square are pet friendly. Discover more of what Keswick has to offer here.

A Playground For The Adventurous

Besides its beauty, the Lake District National Park offers the adventurous visitor a range of activities including fell walking, climbing, cycling, horse-riding and mountain biking to name but a few.

Water-based activities include kayaking, open water swimming, windsurfing, sailing and paddle boarding. The many marinas and kayaking companies offer tuition for the beginner and have equipment for hire.

There are even opportunities to take to the air. Hang-gliding, gyrocopters, gliding, hot-air balloon rides and para-gliding are available at various locations throughout Cumbria.

The Choice Is Yours

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.

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.


Lake District Short Breaks

During Winter and Spring, 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 picturesque. You can take a 3 or 4-night break in many of our cottages from November through to March (subject to availability and excluding Christmas & New Year). Check out our properties available for short breaks here.

If availability allows, we offer last minute short breaks throughout the year within two weeks of the holiday start date. Find your Lakeland cottage last minute breaks here.
