Book a cottage for a wonderful stay in the Lake District!

The Lake District is a popular holiday destination in Cumbria, famous for its breath-taking scenery of lakes, forests and mountains. The landscapes of this area have been a source of inspiration to many, namely romanticist poets such as William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge as well as Victorians such as Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin. Here you will be able to visit many beautiful lakes such as Bassenthwaite, Brothers Water, Buttermere and Windermere, the largest lake in England. You can even visit the former home of the aforementioned Wordsworth, in the village of Grasmere. The picnic, walking, mountain biking, canoeing and wildlife opportunities in this National Park are an outdoorsy traveller's dream.

Best time to visit the Lake District

The busiest season is between June and August, when prices increase, and footpaths are packed with people, accommodation is expensive, but the weather is a lot more desirable. The best alternative time to visit if you can, is autumn or spring when the weather is still fairly warm but it is less busy. Still, whenever you decide to visit, don't forget to pack your umbrella!

How to Get to the National Park?

From London the easiest way to get to the Lake District is via train. Oxenholme, Penrith and Carlisle are connected to London and Glasgow by the West Coast mainline which runs east of the Lake District. Driving is another easy option as you can transport bikes and gear without hassle. From London and cities in the south-east the journey is approximately 5 hours. From Manchester it takes 1 and half hours and two hours from York.
