Cottages Ideally Placed for Sailing Holidays in the Lake District

Of course, when we think of the Lake District we think of water, be it falling from the sky or the many vast open stretches which patchwork this landscape.

There is no better way to really see this fabulous area than from the water and with the Lake District calling itself the 'UK's Adventure Capital' then you're sure to find an abundance of opportunities to cast off from dry land.

Arthur Ransome is synonymous with this area and we think you should make like a Swallow or an Amazon (you decide) and take to the waters in your very own watercraft. Some of the most popular Lakes at Windermere, Coniston and Ullswater all offer a broad range of boats, canoes and kayaks which can be hired for just a few hours or your whole stay if you've got the bug.

With glorious mountains and hills providing the outstanding backdrop to your watery adventure, these inland waters are a pleasantly unintimidating place to test your sea legs. We’re sure you will find the perfect vessel, giving you a fun filled and memorable holiday surrounded by some of the most celebrated and awe-inspiring views in England.

If a cosy cottage stay in this fantastic landscape with sailing filling your days sounds dreamy, then have a look at some of the properties we have available to book on our website - all within a short walk, drive or cycle to some of the best Lakes. If you would like some helpful recommendations for your ideal waterside retreat then please call us on 0333 2020 899.
