Self Catering Cycling Holidays in the Lake District

Cycling holidays in the Lake District are a great way to explore all that the Lake District has to offer – the majestic mountains, the lovely lakes and tarns and the unique Lakeland culture. And because we hand-pick our cottages in the best locations, you’ll be on the doorstep for trails through the forests and exhilarating rides up mountains and down passes on your Lake District cycling holiday. There’s so much to do, you’ll be spoilt for choice. From family routes, perfect for little legs, along the shores of Windermere and Ambleside; ambles along peaceful and pretty country lanes; adventures through the forests of Whinlatter and Grizedale and mountain bike routes over mountains, including Helvellyn.

It’s going to be a fun adventure and one which you can experience all-year round.

And after a day racking up miles, our cottages are the best places for you to relax and rest, ready for another day of exploration.

While you might break into a sweat during the day racing around the picturesque Lake District countryside, you’ll not break a bead over your accommodation with Lakelovers.

How do we know that? Well, we hand-pick only the very best cottages. All of them are VisitEngland 3-5-star graded for an unrivalled stay.

Lakelovers has hand-picked the most immaculate 460 homes – the traditional cottages,  the barn conversions, the apartments, the ‘could-be’ castles from the southern lakes area of Windermere, right up to the northern lakes of Keswick.

After a hard day cycling, you might want to retire to a cottage at the foot of a fell;  perhaps you could think of nothing better than an evening soaking tired muscles in a hot tub; maybe a stroll to a traditional Lakeland pub or into a bustling town to fuel up at a fine restaurant.

Plus, you can choose from larger homes sleeping up to 20 for group and family get-togethers or romantic hideaways sleeping just 2.

Whatever type of home you want for your stay, one thing is for sure, it is going to be unique, stylish and in a superb setting whether you step back in time in a charming, traditional or period cottage with oak beams and open fires; enjoy a luxury boat house on the serene shores of a lake or make it eclectic or environmentally-friendly in a barn conversion.

And, you can stay for as long as you like – whether a weekend-stay, a week-long break-away – and whether it is within a set budget, or you fancy splashing the cash, self-catering with us gives you complete flexibility to create a memorable break away.

You choose. But what you can’t choose is quality – you get that guaranteed.

The Lake District is a great place for the kids to enjoy the great outdoors and cycling holidays in the Lake District means with pedal power, their little legs can explore so many more miles than walking  alone.

We have lots of children and baby-friendly cottages for your family to call home with all the space and luxury that you desire.

And, if you want an outdoor space, many of our homes have gardens, yards and terraces – many with stunning views that will encapsulate you.

And, if you plan to take time off the saddle, you will be conveniently located to visit top attractions in the area  – so no need for any lengthy car journeys. Plus, we give you priority tickets to some of the best attractions in the Lakes.

Have you got a dog? Well, we are sure that they’d like to join you on your holiday and so you can choose from more than 150 of our dog-friendly homes. Your pooch will love it and you’ll not have to fork out for costly kennels and so you’ll save because your canine stay for FREE with us.

Self catering is a popular choice for cyclists because you can come and go as you please and it’s always handy to have a nice kitchen to rustle up snacks for a day out on the bike – or make a hearty meal on your return and sit around the table reminiscing on the day’s journey while eating.

There is so much you can enjoy with your bike and there are lots of local companies in the Lake District to take you on guided mountain bike trails, adventures around the lake and along the Cumbrian bridleways, right across the Lake District. And, if you don’t have a bike, you’ll find plenty of places to hire them from.

You can choose to challenge yourself in the north lakes or have a more leisurely adventure in the south lakes, but wherever you choose, we have holiday homes right where you need them – and in some of the most picturesque spots too.

While you might be self-catering, our holidays are not simply Do-It-Yourself. Should there be anything you need, our customer service team is happily on hand to help you, because we want you to have the very best stay.

So, come and stay with us and cycle Cumbria for a holiday you’ll never forget.
