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.

You might break into a sweat during the day racing around the picturesque Lake District countryside. But 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 are VisitEngland 3-5-star graded for an unrivalled stay.

Lakelovers has hand-picked the most immaculate 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, 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.
