Lake District Holiday Cottage Rentals

The Lake District National Park is unquestionably one of the most beautiful areas of England. The lakes themselves and the surrounding green hills offer a wide range of breathtaking views and outdoor activities for all the family. Although there are many hotels and bed and breakfasts in the Lake District, why not free up your time as entirely your own by considering privately renting a Lake District cottage? Come and go as you please, eat at whichever time you like and ensure that you and your family see the sights at a time which suits you, unfettered by accommodation conditions or schedules.

Starting your holiday in the Lake District

Brockhole is the Lake District Visitor Centre and an excellent location for finding out about all there is to see and do in and around the Lake District. Brockhole is located on Lake Windermere and as well as providing information for your ongoing stay in the area, it has a visitor shop, café and adventure playground for the children. There are also watersports facilities such as canoeing and kayaking, at very affordable prices. The exhibitions which look at the past, present and even projected future of the Lake District are both interesting and informative.

An idea of what can be seen and enjoyed in the Lake District

Although the lakes themselves are what draw most people to the Lake District, they form only a part of the wider family experience. Choosing a rental cottage in a fairly central location within the Lake District National Park will allow visitors to select a number of scenic walks or cycling routes. The beautiful Dove Cottage, now part of the Wordsworth Museum, was the one time home of Poet Laureate, William Wordsworth and is a very popular visitor attraction.

Attractions within easy reach of the Lake District

The beautiful tranquillity of the Lake District and the peaceful isolation afforded by its many rental cottages is something that perhaps children in particular will better appreciate after spending at least one day at a livelier locale. In this case, renting holiday accommodation in Blackpool, UK’s top seaside resort, which is located in close proximity to the Lake District, is likely to prove of benefit. An hour’s car drive will have the whole family in the heart of Blackpool, where attractions like Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Blackpool Tower and many more will delight children of all ages. If driving and trying to find a parking spot in Blackpool is not something you fancy, bus and train travel is possible from several Lake District locations, to take the stress out of the occasion.
