When the time to book your annual family holiday comes round again, there are so many different options and choices from theme parks, beach holidays and many more. However, if you fancy holidaying on British soil this summer then the perfect break for you and your family has to be with Lake District Cottages. This area of the country is well known for its stunning beauty and the pace of life and the fresh air will leave you feeling truly refreshed at the end of your break.
However, when visiting Cumbria and the lakes there is a wide choice of accommodation available from campsites to bed and breakfasts and rural cottages. If you plan a stay of more than a few days then a break at a rural cottage on a self catering basis could be your ideal choice. When holidaying away with your family you need a home from home and somewhere that your children can run and play, Lake District Cottages providing you with just that.
To really appreciated the tranquility of life offered in this sometimes forgotten corner of the globe, a period property that you can turn into your home for a week offers you the ideal solution. Whether the purpose of your break is to go cycling, mountaineering or to simple idle your days away by the most beautiful lakes in the country, Lake District cottages provide you with the perfect holiday base.
When choosing from Lake District Cottages for your accommodation, the central and northern lakes are always a firm favorite. Bowness on Windermere, Ambleside and Keswick offer you great central locations for your family holiday with well known walks and attractions to hand. If you prefer somewhere slightly less central and even more secluded, try cottages in Buttermere, Cartmel or Threlkeld.
The Lake District is easily accessible by road, the A66 at Penrith taking you away from the motorway and just a short drive away from some of the most popular cottages. If you choose to travel by train then the stations of Windermere and Oxenholme the Lake district are en route. However, in order to explore the vast area that is covered by the Lake District and Cumbria, a car will be a great advantage.
