Self catering holiday cottages in Gilcrux, Cumbria, England

Imagine being just 10 minutes from the coast and 10 minutes from the Lake District National Park, that’s what you get if you choose Gilcrux for your country cottage holiday. This well-situated village makes for an ideal place to stay if you’re a fan of the great outdoors, whether you prefer the seaside, the open countryside, or both. Scenic, welcoming and pleasant are just three words to describe the lovely Cumbrian village of Gilcrux, which offers warm welcomes to all visitors.

No visit to Gilcrux is complete without paying a visit to St Mary’s church, which was constructed during the Norman times and was renovated in the 13th century. When it comes to getting something to eat or drink, there’s the Barn Bistro and the Mason’s Arms, two traditional country pubs that offer delicious food, real ales and a friendly and sociable atmosphere.

Alternatively, if you fancy something different, head to the nearby town of Maryport by the coast, which offers a greater variety of eateries, such as the Harbourside Cafe, Captain Nelson Tavern and Maryport Tandoori. While visiting the charming seaside town, be sure to visit the Lake District Coast Aquarium and the Wave Centre, where you can hire electric bikes and go exploring.

The Lake District National Park is, of course, as one of England's top areas, worth visiting as well. With 12 of the country’s largest lakes and a host of activities available, there’s plenty for everyone. It’s arguably the most picturesque place in the country and is hugely popular with nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts, attracting millions of visitors each and every year. Whatever your tastes, you’re bound to find lots to do here, whether it’s going on scenic walks, sailing, mountain biking, canoeing, climbing, gorge walking or even something totally different.
