Private Holiday Rental Accommodation in Cumbria

Cumbria is a county in the North of England which is famed above all for its natural beauty. Although it is the Lake District which most people will immediately associate with Cumbria, there are a great many other spots of natural beauty to behold, as well as plenty of activities to suit all tastes around the county. It is an excellent idea to consider renting holiday accommodation in Cumbria, whether it be a cottage in the Lake District, a small lodge, or a large, permanently located caravan. This will ensure that you have the freedom and the flexibility to get out and about and see and enjoy everything which Cumbria has to offer, at a time which suits you and your family or travel companions.

Lake District beauty in Cumbria

Arriving in Cumbria by car, or perhaps hiring a car on your arrival, is virtually essential for seeing the best of what the county has to offer. The Lake District is comprised of around twenty major bodies of water, with a great many smaller ones dotted around. Visitors looking to explore the lakes may be best advised to begin at Windermere and the Brockhole Visitor Centre, where all the required information may be obtained. There are a number of facilities at the centre for all the family to enjoy, including watersports and a children’s adventure playground. Other locations in the area more than worth seeing include Derwent Water, Ullswater and Coniston Water, where perished Donald Campbell, CBE, in his ill-fated attempt to break his own world speed record over water in his craft, Bluebird, in 1967.

Rugged scenery in Cumbria

As well as its Lakeland beauty, Cumbria also has its rugged, mountainous scenery to appreciate. Cumbria is host to every mountain in England over the three thousand feet mark and climbers, adventurous walkers and even mountain bikers are therefore all but spoiled for choice in the locations which they can visit. You may for this reason choose to seek a holiday cottage or lodge for rental in an area close to peaks such as Scafell Pike, Helvellyn, or Skiddaw, in order to engage in one of these particular brands of holiday pastime activity.

Historical attractions in Cumbria

Cumbria is an area which has witnessed considerable upheaval in a historical sense. Evidence of this dating back to Roman times can still be seen, particularly with the legendary Hadrian’s Wall forming the county’s approximate northern boundary. The path which follows the course of the wall is a great way for walkers with an interest in history to combine both passions. Castles are plentiful in Cumbria, with the impressive Carlisle Castle dating back to Norman times. A visit to Carlisle Castle can be combined with a tour of the historic town, where the ancient features of the county’s main population and economic centre are complemented by the common comforts and conveniences of everyday modern living.
