Lake District Holiday Cottages to book direct with owners

Enjoy the personal touch by booking your Lake District holiday cottage direct with the owner, most of whom are on hand nearby during your holiday or short break in the Lakes & Cumbria.

North Lake District Cottages near Keswick

Keswick, heart of the North Lakes, is a vibrant, bustling market town on the shores of Derwentwater and surrounded by some of the most magnificent Lakeland fells.

South Lake District Holiday Cottages

Find your perfect Lake District cottage in the magical area around Windermere lake. While popular Bowness-on-Windermere and Ambleside are vibrant and busy, many of the real cottage gems are found just off the beaten track, but with easy access to all the visitor attractions and amenities.

Ullswater Cottages and the Eden Valley

Explore the area around Ullswater and the beautiful Eden Valley from your Lake District holiday cottage. There are lakeside cottages with private landings, gorgeous cosy cottages tucked away down country lanes and more to choose from.

Eskdale & the Western Lake District Cottages

The gorgeous Western lakes and the Eskdale Valley are a quieter side of the Lakes. With scenery ranging from gentle rolling countryside around Gilcrux to the dramatic fells of Eskdale and Wasdale there’s plenty of choice of scenery around your perfect Lake District cottage.

Holiday Cottages in the Borders

Utterly romantic, and a little wilder than the Lake District proper, the Scottish borders are far less discovered than the Lakeland valleys. Take off for a real get-away-from-it-all in the luxurious comforts of an outstanding grade II* mansion house.
