Coastal Cottages

What is unbeknown to many who visit the Lake District is that the mountain and lake landscape also has some award-winning beaches and Lakelovers have a range of holiday cottages near Cumbria’s coast from which they can be easily enjoyed.

The iconic mountains of the Lake District, along with it’s beautiful stretches of water are what the region is best known and loved for. It does, of course, have so much more to offer holidaymakers too. The Lake District is now a hub for culinary excellence and is home to some of the most stunning country houses and gardens.

Here we take a look at some of what the region’s spectacular coastline has to offer.

Staying at a Lakelovers holiday cottage near the Cumbrian coast is an experience not to be missed and so if you can’t find the property you are looking for online then contact us and will do all we can to find the perfect coastal escape for you and your guests.

You can view our full range of lake district cottages across all locations in the Lake District below.

Coastal Cottage Locations

Strewn up and down the west coast of Cumbria you will find some of the country’s finest beaches and coastal areas. Here, simple pleasures such as exploring rock pools with the children or taking the family dog for an early morning splash in the Irish Sea, perch side by side with more high octane activities such as wind surfing or paddle boarding. From the Solway Firth in the north, where you can see wild salt marshes, to Morecambe Bay in the south with its beautiful sands, self-catering near the Cumbrian coast has something for everyone.

Millom, around a 30 minute drive from Lakeside, is the home to the award-winning Haverigg Beach, located on the Duddon Estuary. The beach is famous for its wild, rustic grasses that cover the dunes which boarder the white sands and is the perfect location for kite flying, building sand castles or for taking a relaxing walk.

If equestrian pursuits are of interest, then Millom offers a unique and exciting opportunity. The stables at Cumbrian Heavy Horses are home to some spectacular Clydesdale, Shire and Ardennes breeds and visitors can choose from several different treks, including beach rides, where a canter along the sands and through the waves will make for an unforgettable experience.

In contrast, the mudflats and saltmarshes that can be found at the Solway Firth are teaming with thousands of species of birds and so serves as a mecca for those with a love of our feathered friends – eyes peeled for bar-tailed godwits and oystercatchers. The Solway Firth is in the far north of the Lake District and so those wanting to visit may look for a property in Keswick as an easy base.

Ravenglass has another of the Lake District’s best beaches and is situated to the west of Coniston. This picturesque stretch of Cumbrian coastline has fishermen’s cottages dotted along the seafront and the beach itself is at its most enchanting when the sun is setting and its reflection sets the sea below ablaze with colour.

You can, of course, combine your love of the coast with your love of the Cumbrian countryside by planning a walk that will allow you to take in both. One such walk can be found at Ravenglass and en route you can see the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway along with a Roman bath house.

Should you prefer, you can swap your walking boots for a seat on the steam train that shuttles along the Ravenglass and Eskdale railway periodically. This miniature steamer pulls open top carriages along a seven mile route up to Boot, at the foot of England’s highest peak, Scafell Pike.

Cumbria Coast Self-Catering Cottages

Self-catering near the Cumbrian coast is a wonderful way to explore the beaches and coastal areas on offer. All of Lakelovers coastal cottages have the VisitEngland 3-5* rating and comprise of properties both big and small. Cumbria coast self-catering cottages afford you the freedom to do what you want, when you want to do it and this includes how, when and where you eat.

One of the features that you can expect to find in any all of our luxury cottages is a high spec kitchen that is perfect for cooking fantastic family meals, made with locally sourced produce, or for preparing a picnic hamper ready for your next coastal adventure. We’d highly recommend Morecambe Bay Potted Shrimps.

To wash away the sand and sea salt you can choose from coastal cottages that have bespoke bathrooms or wet rooms for when you pull off your wetsuit. Living spaces, whether they be compact and cosy or modern open plan heavens will serve to enhance the overall quality and sheer luxury of your experience. Many of the living spaces have open fires or wood burning stoves, Wi-Fi, state-of-the-art entertainment systems and are furnished to with wow factor.

Other features of our Cumbria coast self-catering properties to look out for include hot tubs and choosing a property that has one can bring a luxurious and welcome addition to your break – it’s like living at a mini spa for a few days.

Exhilarating Sea Water Swimming

Although it should be approached with caution, those brave enough to take a dip in the Irish Sea may find they enjoy some unexpected benefits. Research has pinpointed several benefits from swimming in cold sea water and these include a stronger immune system and better blood circulation. Not only that but those taking the plunge also experience an immediate feeling of wellbeing as the body releases endorphins that are exhilarating. Plus, whilst in the water you burn more calories as the body fights to stay warm.
