Self-catering accommodation and cottage holidays in the Lake District of Cumbria, England

Cumbria and the Lakes, for an unforgettable, self-catering cottage holidayThere are few more scenic locations for a cottage holiday than the Lake District. Carved by the last great Ice Age, the serene lakes of Cumbria lie cradled by the  brooding hills.  The scenery is breathtaking - landscapes where you can only stand and stare surround you on all sides.  Broad fells dotted with sheep, wild ponies on the moors, a profusion of wild flowers and complete peace.  A place to refresh your soul.

Our English poets drew inspiration from this land.  William Wordsworth, in particular, began Britain's love affair with the Lake District in the 19th Century and it has passed down the generations.  Countless visitors still follow in his footsteps.  Wordsworth described poetry as 'the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings arising from emotion recollected in tranquillity'.  When you visit the Lake District you will  understand.
