Holiday Cottages in Cumbria

Cumbria in the North West of England is famous for its rugged charm, dramatic fells and brooding landscape. It is home to the Lake District National Park, but also includes parts of the Yorkshire Dales, a stretch of Hadrian’s Wall and the North Pennines, which is itself an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We have a substantial selection of holiday cottages in Cumbria, from the Eden Valley, which borders Scotland, to the quieter areas of Lakeland, such as Kendal. Cumbria suits thrill-seekers and relaxers alike, with equal opportunities to scale mountains as there are to enjoy tea and cake in little cafes. 

Our portfolio of self-catering properties in Cumbria range from intimate one-bed stone cottages, to Manor houses that can host up to twenty guests. Our local team recommend Mount Hooley Lodge in Alston. This is a unique property modelled on Canadian style log cabins and boasts breathtaking panoramic views of the South Tyne Valley. Completed by an outdoor hot tub, woodburner and space for 8 guests, this cottage is a prime example of our luxury properties in the Cumbrian region. 

Our team also recommend Holmhead Cottage, which sits right on the border between Northumberland and Cumbria, making it the ideal place from which to explore the rich history and nature of both regions. The cottage itself is built directly over the foundations of Hadrian’s Wall with its stone lifted from the Wall itself, giving the property a unique slice of ancient history. Maranatha House is in the idyllic village of Maulds Meaburn, and is one of many of our dog-friendly cottages in the area. Our final recommendation is Monks Bridge in Crosby Ravensworth, which borders the Yorkshire Dales, a perfect way to explore both regions and ideal for those travelling from further south. As you can see, our cottages span the length and breadth of this multifaceted region. 

Planning your Holiday in Cumbria

The Lake District National Park is arguably the region’s biggest draw and it is known nationally for its amazing walks and vistas. These span across the whole of Cumbria and there are plenty of places to visit with equally awe-inspiring views in the areas that surround the Lake District. A visit to the Eden Valley provides you with the opportunity to explore the Lakes, the Dales and the Scottish border. This hidden gem has countless footpaths and bridleways scattered across it and there are walks to suit all abilities including a variety of leisurely strolls along the banks of the River Heade, which meanders towards the historic Border City of Carlisle. 

The North Pennines is also home to a range of walking routes and is known as England’s last wilderness, a title which has earned the region its status as a UNESCO Global Geopark. Miles upon miles of unspoilt scenery surround you here, featuring lush moors, farms, rivers and trails. The pretty stone village of Allendale and the town of Alston here are great places to stop on your rambles. 

Kendal and Cartmel are also popular with visitors. Kendal is an old traditional Cumbrian market town and is home to a hive of shops, restaurants, pubs, bars, and local historical attractions such as Kendal Castle and Kendal Museum. Cartmel - home of the famous Cartmel Sticky Toffee Pudding - and the Cumbrian Peninsulas stretch across Cumbria’s southern coastline, and are home to some really lovely towns and villages. The market town of Ulverston is a classic Lakeland destination and is the birthplace of Stan Laurel, one of the Laurel and Hardy pair - you can visit the museum dedicated to the comedy legends on your trip. You can also enjoy a walk up the Hoad Hill monument, known locally as the salt and pepper shaker providing unrivalled panoramic views of Morecambe Bay, the Lake District and the Irish Sea. It is easy to see why this region is so admired, and our cottages seek to provide you with the ultimate Cumbrian holiday experience.
