If there’s one part of England to rival anywhere in the world for its natural beauty, it’s Cumbria. Characterised by rugged peaks, magnificent bodies of water and spectacular wildlife, Cumbria is an amazing place for a holiday and, even though it may just be a few miles from your home, Cumbria holiday cottages can feel like a world away from the usual hustle and bustle.

There are lots of amazing holiday cottages in Cumbria, including some of the finest in the whole country. Many Cumbria holiday cottages are found in the region’s picturesque towns and villages, while others are in even more remote parts and are perfectly located for those adventurous hiking, climbing or cycling holidays. Whether it’s a spacious lodge for you and your friends or a smaller stone cottage in a quaint little village like Skirwith, there are holiday cottages in Cumbria available for all tastes and budgets.

What to do on your Cumbria holiday cottage holiday

Cumbria is the perfect destination if you’re looking for adventure. Home to some of England’s largest peaks, including the towering Scafell Pike, it’s the place to go if you enjoy hiking or rock climbing. Whether you’re an expert mountaineer or an amateur fell walker, there are lots of holiday cottages in Cumbria that are perfectly placed for exploring those tall peaks and rugged uplands.

As well as its amazing natural landscapes, (and we haven’t even mentioned the lakes yet!), Cumbria boasts some spectacular wildlife. With six nature reserves in total, the county is home to some iconic species, including red squirrels, roe deer and even Ospreys, which migrate year on year all the way from Africa.

Cumbria isn’t all rolling hills and remote peaks, and the county is dotted with lots of picturesque towns and villages. Penrith, for example, is one of the large towns, easily reached by rail or road, and bustling with activity. Carlisle, the county town, is well worth a visit, boasting fascinating historic landmarks such as Carlisle Castle.

Take control of your next holiday and go self-catering with Cumbria holiday cottages. With pet friendly options, cottages with swimming pools and modern spacious lodges available, you’re bound to find your next amazing home from home in no time.
