Lake District Cottages for Short Breaks

When it comes to stunning scenery, nowhere in the UK comes quite as close as the Lake District National Park. William Wordsworth even described it as 'the loveliest spot man hath found'. Perhaps you and your partner are daydreaming about a romantic break on Lake Windermere? Maybe you fancy whisking off the whole family for a trip to Beatrix Potter World followed by a picturesque picnic? Or perhaps you're looking to run away soon on a last-minute Lake District break? Well, you’ve come to the right place. 

Our incredible selection of late availablility Lake District cottages for short breaks, cheap holidays and longer trips combines quality with convenience, giving you the best possible experience at the best possible price. What's more, with such a large selection of last-minute holiday properties to choose from, whatever you want from your last-minute Lake District getaway, we've got it covered. Think everything from characterful cottages to stately mansions. And that’s before we mention amenities like hot tubs, swimming pools, enclosed gardens, games rooms, bars and ground floor toilets. 

Your cottage break in the Lakes can be anything you want it to be. Whether you’re looking for something with easy access to the best attractions, a cheap Lake District holiday cottage for your next budget trip, or a cottage that sleeps up to 30 away from the action, we’re sure to have something to suit. Our friendly team will go above and beyond to ensure that your Lake District short break or long break is remembered for all the right reasons too. Plus, last-minute offers and best price guarantee means it doesn’t have to break the bank either. 

In our Travelling solo in the UK guide, we look at the benefits of going it alone, how to plan for the trip of a lifetime, how to make friends on your travels (if you want to), and the friendliest places in the UK to travel to.
