Places to stay in the Lake District

The Lake District is wide and varied in the types of landscape that it has to offer. Are you looking to stay in a holiday let that is secluded, with luscious fields either side? Or perhaps you are looking for a Lakeland log cabin with a hot tub. We can offer you the best advice on where to stay in the Lake District:

  • Coniston: This is one of the Cumbria’s finest lakeside villages, with Coniston Water lake at its side. It is famous for being the literary inspiration for Arthur Ransome's Swallows and Amazons, and the lake has been the source of many attempts to break the world record for water speed. You can find Cumbrian cottages in Windermere and it is a great place for watersports.
  • Windermere: Possibly the most famous destination in the Peak District, the lake in this village, Lake Windermere, is the largest in England. This is also a great location for watersports, and depending on what you’re after, there is accommodation to rent in many of the nearby villages, or in Windermere itself.

When to visit the Lake District

Are you wondering what time of the year to visit the Lake District? The peak season is naturally between June and August when the prices for short-stay accommodation is at its highest. This is also when the car parks are full and there is a lot of traffic. Of course, this is when watersports and the lakes are at their most enjoyable as the weather is fantastic. However, it is still an incredible place to visit particularly in the spring months of April and May when the weather is temperate. It is also great during the autumnal months of September and October when the autumnal colours are in full bloom. Even in winter, visiting the Lake District can be enjoyable. Particularly if you find accommodation with a hot tub for your trip.

The World of Beatrix Potter and other points of interest

  • The World of Beatrix Potter: This activity can be enjoyed by all of the family; both older members that remember the tales of Peter Rabbit in Mr McGregor’s garden, Jemima Puddle-Duck, and of course Mrs Tiggy-Winkle. Step inside her world of wonderful characters.
  • Hill Top - Beatrix Potter’s House: Visit Potter’s old house in the Lakes itself. The garden and cottage itself are surrounded by natural wonders and it is clear to see how she was inspired to write her children’s books.
  • Holker Hall, Award Winning Hall & Gardens: Located in Grange-over-Sands, this beautiful manor house is the home of Lord and Lady Cavendish.
