The North West England, with its innumerable water box and the Brathwaite Lake, is a perfect place for a holiday. It is also known as the Lake District, located in Cumbria. It has mountains, lakes, forests and glorious scenery. Take a relaxing walk, sit, contemplate, go boating and have fun. The Lake District National Park offers immense opportunities to explore and enjoy. It is dotted with Lake District cottages offering a luxurious and comfortable place to stay.

Anchored at such a self-catering cottage, you can explore the surrounding areas together and have a fun-filled stay. To the north-west is the Newlands Fells, Lord’s Seat, and Thornthwaite Forest. To the west is the deepest lake, the Westwater. To the east is the Kirkstone P and Patterdale valley. In fact, you can explore in all directions and find something fresh and new on each trip.

The entire area is a wonderful holiday getaway, especially for families. Families can choose cottages nestled in the lap of nature with scenic views as a place to stay and as a base from where to explore the surroundings. Of course, there are hotels with comfortable rooms but these cannot match the amenities of cottages. If you are going as a family, the best option is self-catering cottages. Such cottages are fully furnished with all modern amenities and serve as a home away from home. Fitted with modern equipment and facilities, they still retain their traditional, old world charm and cosy comfort. You can find these cottages in Elterwater, Grasmere, Chapel Stile, Skelwith Fold and Outgate.

Lake District cottages are an ideal choice for families who wish to carry their pets along too. There are individuals and organizations letting out such fully furnished cottages with one, two, three and four bedrooms and a kitchen to accommodate a single small family or a larger group.Rates are quite affordable when you consider the luxurious comfort and privacy you get in a self-catering Lake District cottage where you can cook your food and live the way you like. Rates start at 400 GBP and can go up to 2000 GBP. Simply carry along your clothes and nothing much since they provide bed linen and towels. You might have to buy your food, though. Have enjoyable day trips and relax by a cozy fireside.
