Find cottages in CumbriaVisit Cumbria

Cumbria is one of Britain's most loved and visited holiday locations, providing a unique combination of dramatic mountains and awesome lakes. It's a place that attracts visitors all year round and appeals to a wide variety of holidaymakers from couples who want to stay in a cosy Lakeland cottage to families who are looking for country homes with a view.

Cumbria has a great blend and variety of contrasting landscapes, including the renowned Lake District National Park which includes all the iconic places synonymous with the Lake District such as Windermere, Keswick and Ambleside as well as famous lakes such as Lake Windermere, Derwentwater and Coniston.

The mountains and fells here are spectacular and include iconic peaks such as Blencathra, Skiddaw, Grisdale Pike and the largest mountain in England Scarfell Pike. The county extends well beyond The National Park offering great cottage holiday destinations like the tranquil Eden Valley in the east and the rugged uplands to the north around Hadrian's Wall or the Western Lakes and Coast on the west and the Cartmel Peninsula in the south.

Because of its quite compact geography it's easy to get around the Lake District and despite of its popularity it's still possible to escape fellow holidaymakers to admire the wide open spaces and spectacular views with the feeling that you're the only one there, apart from the sheep!

The great outdoors is of course one of the main reasons people visit; this is wonderful walking and cycling country as well as providing lots of opportunities to sample the watersports on the numerous lakes.

Families will find no shortage of top quality visitor attractions, those interested in National Trust properties and gardens will also not be disappointed. The region is packed with picturesque Lakeland villages to discover, specialist shops, cosy pubs and restaurants.

Those thinking about taking a cottage holiday in Cumbria are sure to find something suitable, whether it's in the 'hot spots' of the central and southern lakes or the more remote and rugged areas of the northern lakes, or maybe the less well known regions to the west and east of the county.

So whether you're looking for lots of activities and attractions or a quiet 'away from it all' break this region will suit.

Take a look at our selection of holiday cottages in Cumbria to find your perfect retreat.

Shared outdoor heated swimming pool and multi-gym

The Morland Estate provides 21 bedrooms across four substantial properties (refs 28497, 28498, 28499 and 28500) which can be booked together or individually. The properties have been beautifully restored and furnished and are situated within 15 acres of ancient woods and parkland in the glorious rolling countryside of the Eden Valley in Cumbria. The stunning and tranquil setting is very magical and is an ideal venue for groups of friends and families gathering together to celebrate that important anniversary, birthday, celebration, reunion or get-together. The Hall and Coach House both have a civil license for weddings and it is a location simply made for New Year and Christmas gatherings. Self-catered or with outside catering, you can create a party that you and your friends and family will never forget.
These four beautifully presented holiday cottages have excellent facilities and comfort. Built in 1861, the main house fell into decline after the Second World War, but has now happily been restored to its former glory by the present owners, to provide a splendid large hall, along with two spacious and extremely comfortable holiday properties adjoining the main house, and, further up the drive, the large and elegant detached Coach House. Within close proximity of The Coach House, in an attractive sheltered area, is the shared outdoor heated swimming pool and an adjacent gym. With very good access to both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, Morland Hall Estate makes for an excellent holiday destination.
Just 8 miles away lies the attractive market town of Appleby, once the county town of Westmorland, and renowned for its famous Horse Fair held in June of each year since 1750. Passing through the town, the Settle to Carlisle railway offers visitors the chance to relax and enjoy wonderful scenery as it runs over the famous 24-arched Ribblehead Viaduct before descending two hundred feet in five miles. Slightly further to the north of Appleby, the traditional, bustling market town of Penrith, gateway to Ullswater, can be found. Whether your interests be walking, climbing, fishing, golf, nature, history, art, literature or just relaxing and touring the pretty sandstone villages of Eden and the spectacular and contrasting scenery of the Lakes and Dales, you will find plenty to do and see. Shops 7 miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

Graythwaite Cottages offer the opportunity for an exceptional holiday experience. The original buildings of this unique Victorian ‘model farmstead’ have been tastefully refurbished to a very high standard. They provide not only superb holiday accommodation, but also an outstanding range of facilities, including an indoor heated swimming-pool, table tennis and a fitness suite. The stunning location offers plenty of gloriously natural space to visitors and a one-mile walk (which crosses a road) leads to private frontage on the softly lapped shores of Windermere itself. A 2½-acre stocked lake provides free trout fishing and, at the hub of the estate, beautiful Graythwaite Hall’s lovely surrounding gardens are open to the public in the Spring.
The cottages form part of the Graythwaite Estate, which has been in the same family since the reign of Queen Elizabeth I and remained intact as a large working estate throughout four centuries. The farm stead, from which the cottages have been formed, was built in 1890 and its position was chosen at a time when the popularity of the Lake District was just beginning to rise in wealthy Victorian circles. Thus the tranquillity and beauty which first captivated visitors to this area can still be enjoyed in heavenly surroundings where peace reigns supreme.
Visitors are well placed to explore the extraordinary and dramatic scenery for which the Lakes are so famous. Hilltop Farm at Near Sawrey, the cottage where Beatrix Potter’s imagination was stirred to create Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck, is just 4 miles away. At Hawkshead (4 miles) there is a gallery dedicated to her original drawings and illustrations. Within 10 miles are Rydal Fell, Rydal Water, Grasmere and the cottage of the poet who made them famous and brought the Lake District to the attention of the world, William Wordsworth.
The Lakeside and Haverthwaite Steam Railway (4 miles) runs through the valley of the River Leven; its trains connect with a leisurely steamer going to the busy, cosmopolitan town of Bowness-on-Windermere. The steamer also wends its way further north to Waterhead, the stop for the pretty little town of Ambleside.

Cunsey Lodge Ref: LO9

Set in a magnificent elevated position backing onto woodland with open views towards Lake Windermere, this superb detached holiday home is just a half mile walk from the shore. Built in 2010, incorporating under-floor heating with ground source heat pump, a wood-burning stove, an en-suite to each bedroom and spacious living areas, it makes an excellent base to explore the Central Lake District. Forming part of the Graythwaite Estate, guests are free to roam the estate which has lake frontage; 1½ miles away there is a 2½ acre stocked lake, providing fly fishing (at cost), an indoor heated swimming pool, a fitness suite (at cost), dedicated children’s play area, table tennis and bike hire. Beautiful walks stretch in every direction from the door towards Grizedale, and near Sawrey where Beatrix Potter’s Hill Top Farm is located, the very cottage where she was inspired to create Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck. At Hawkshead, 4 miles, there is a gallery dedicated to her original drawings. The ferry at Sawrey takes cars across Lake Windermere to Bowness where there are a multitude of restaurants, boutiques, galleries, water-sports of every description and cruisers for trips on the Lake. Graythwaite Hall itself has lovely gardens open from springtime to autumn and there are many other fascinating country houses, gardens and castles within a 10 mile drive, such as Holker Hall, Sizergh Castle and grounds, Levens Hall and gardens, Townend Hall and Holehire Gardens. Just north of Ambleside lies Grasmere with a beautiful smaller lake, also the cottage and museum of the famous poet who loved the Lake District so much and brought it to the attention of the world, William Wordsworth. Shop 1½ miles.
