The Lake District, in our opinion, is looking its best at this time of the year. Fresh greenery, lovely flowers and what's more, the visitor attractions are open but you have more of them to yourselves without the crowds of the peak season. Added to this, we have been enjoying some lovely weather so bookings have been coming in quickly. We now have only a few weeks available this season so if you do want a quiet break in this cosy cottage, we'd love to hear from you. Otherwise there's next year! Have a look at the 'What's on' page and begin to plan your holiday here.
The new Windermere Jetty Museum has just opened on the site of the old steamboat museum. There's lots to do and see with many stories about South Lakeland's boat, builders and users. You can even book a heritage boat trip on the lake in a restored Edwardian steam launch - take a look at their web site - the link is on our What's On page.
Over the years many of our visitors have enjoyed exploring the beauties of the Lake District on foot or on two wheels so we are especially pleased to have been awarded these two Visit England's Welcome badges again. Those of you wanting to explore on foot will find walking to suit all abilities and stamina: from mountain climbing to gentle strolls. You can access many lovely walks from the cottage gate & if you plan your route carefully, you'll find many delightful refreshment stops. For those who prefer two wheels, either bring your own bike or hire one nearby (See our location page for bike hire details).
What peace and beautiful scenery - no wonder writers and artists were so inspired.
