We now only have Christmas week available this year. We can't guarantee the weather but we can guarantee you will have a warm and cosy base to return to after exploring what the area has to offer. So if you do want a quiet holiday break, we'd love to hear from you.
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.
Otherwise there's next year! Have a look at the 'What's on' page and begin to plan your holiday here. If you book early, not only do you get the pick of the calendar but you can book your 2020 holiday at 2019 prices.
We can thoroughly recommend a holiday here in April or May. Spring is a lovely time here in Lakeland and the well-known attractions are much less crowded than later on in the year.
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.
