There can be few more relaxing and pleasurable weekend breaks in the UK than spending time in a beautiful Cumbrian Cottage in or around the stunning land of the Lake District. The jewel of England's Northwest, the Lake District boasts spectacular scenery, wildlife, food and attractions that make it the perfect weekend break destination. Whatever the season, a Lake District holiday offers you an insight into the natural world at its best, and what better way to see these green and pleasant lands than basing yourself in one of our superb Lakeland cottages.

In summer, the Lake District is alive with colour and light, and from your Cumbrian Cottage you will enjoy summer meadows rising into spectacular mountains while the sun glitters on the surface of majestic lakes. Spring is an ever popular time of the year to arrange a Lake District weekend break, as the trees and heather burst into life and the views from the fells show a panorama of verdant shades. In autumn, the regions many woodlands glow with gold and a weekend cottage break is richly rewarding to walkers. And some of the most inspiring scenes can be seen in winter, as frost grips to the mountains and early morning mist snakes its way across the surface of the lakes. Our Lake District cottages are also increasingly popular destinations for New Year breaks and Christmas weekend getaways, as people discover the benefits of relaxation in a traditional and welcoming environment.
