Tour & explore The Lake District

There is endless choice when it comes to things to do and places to visit the Lake District. Avid walkers will be spoilt for choice by dramatic scenery, such as the panoramic views over Keswick, Derwent Water and Borrowdale that you can experience along the Cat Bells walking trial.

There are many magnificent fells and imposing mountains to climb, like the Helvellyn mountain range, the summit of which is the third highest point in England, and the challenging Scafell Pike, England’s highest mountain.

Some of the most popular Lake District towns to visit include Ambleside, Bowness-on-Windermere, the home of fascinating literary attraction Beatrix Potter World, Cartmel, Coniston, Grasmere, where you can learn more about poet William Wordsworth at his former home of Dove Cottage, Kendal, Keswick, Ravenglass and Ulverston.

Whether you’re looking for a pet-friendly cottage with your favourite four-legged companion, a romantic cottage just for two, perhaps with a place with a hot tub, or a large property to accommodate groups of friends or large family, you’ll be sure to find the perfect retreat in our collection of fabulous holiday cottages in The Lake District.
