Self Catering Cottages in Cumbria

Well known and well loved – the Lake District has its own breathtaking beauty at any time of the year with awe-inspiring mountains towering over shimmering lakes. We have self catering cottages in Cumbria; a beautiful county that holds numerous attractions for all the family and where you will find all the usual outdoor pursuits such as horse riding and water sports as well as a friendly and welcoming atmosphere wherever you go.

A self catering cottage in Cumbria in the Lake District will never fail to impress, with historic homes and gardens, fascinating museums and exhibitions featuring the works of Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter awaiting exploration.

Ullswater and the Eden Valley are to be found to the East of Cumbria where you can explore castles, stone circles and henges or take in all the beautiful scenery around the Lake District Peninsulas with its many nature reserves and wildlife. A paradise for walkers and cyclists and a haven for trout and salmon fishermen. 

In this area of constantly changing surroundings, do not miss the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Alston, England's highest market town.
