Self-catering holiday accommodation for walkers in Cumbria and the Lake District

England is home to spectacular backdrops, with mountains, lakes, striking coastal paths and dense forestry, and going on a walking holiday here is a fantastic way to really appreciate the beauty that this country has to offer. There are plenty of self-catering cottages, houses and apartments available to rent for walkers in England where you can trek by day and relax by night in the comfort of your living room, eating your favourite dishes and watching a great film. This is the best way to explore England’s footpaths and walking trails as you can come and go as you please and you will feel that your accommodation is a home away from home on your break.

A wonderful place to visit in England for a walking holiday is the incredible Lake District National Park. Home to impressive lakes, including the longest in the country, Lake Windermere, quaint villages and pretty waterfalls, there is plenty to see on a walking trip here, where you can soak up the scenery and keep fit at the same time! It is also home to the highest mountain in England, Scafell Pike, which offers spectacular views to all who climb to the summit.

This is a selection of cottages, apartments, log cabins, pine lodges and country houses, that provide comfortable accommodation for walkers in various parts of Cumbria and the Lake District. Please click on any images shown to view details of the holiday rentals.

Please find additional self-catering accommodation and cottages in the Lake District and northern England of all sizes and categories. All of our cottages are of a good comfortable quality and include luxury 5 star properties in addition to more modest budget priced accommodation.
