Cottages With Open Fires

Lake District Cottages with log fire

A traditional inglenook open fire or stylish log burner is a sought-after feature for a cottage holiday, which is why we have them in most of our properties.

And what a collection of cottages with open fires and burners we have. From impressive 17th century inglenook fireplaces, with fireside seating to designer log burners with stylish slate hearths.

What better way to unwind after a day on the fells, than next to a crackling fire. For romantic holidaymakers, a fire is a must. Closing the curtains and cosying up to a glowing fire as the Lake District night sky sweeps in is simply idyllic. And for celebratory events and family holidays a statement fireplace creates a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere, inviting guests to gather around and be merry. Just make sure that you have plenty of fuel in to keep the fire going as long as you do!

Roaring Success

When booking one of Lakelovers cottages with an open fire order one of our WARMA Stove Starter Packs that can be used for open fires as well as log burners and win brownie points as the pack will be in your home ready for when you arrive.

Each WARMA Stove Starter Pack is £6.99 and comes with the following key ingredients to get you started during your stay:

  • Tinder
  • Dry Kindling (average 6 sticks)
  • Wood Wool Firelighters (x3)
  • Kiln Dried Wood (average 8kg)

Designed to get you going, these boxes are perfect for keeping you warm and cosy during your first night in your holiday cottage.

Comforting Crackles

Complement the comforting crackles of your cottage open fire with a soothing playlist, some nibbles and family board games. Warm a bottle of red by the fire and enjoy a cheese board of the region’s award-winning cheese, like the Blue Stilton, Appleby Cheshire and Ragstone Goats Cheese from Cartmel Cheeses. More? The Artisan Bakery, in Staveley make ‘heavenly’ bread, which we’d recommend lavishly buttered and enjoyed with a hot chocolate in front of a roaring, warm fire.

Period Feature

A cottage fire has long been a practical must in the Lake District – a chair should be located close by so those straight from off the fells can warm up with a hot drink and some freshly made bread. This chair is also the spot for a spinning wheel, so jobs can be done next to the warmth of the fire. A hearth rug is also a must, so pets can enjoy the warmth of the flames too.

Famous Fireplaces of the Lake District

If you can bear to leave the comfort of your deliciously warm cottage with open fire then head to visit some of England’s most famous country homes.

Author of Children’s series Peter Rabbit and Friends, Beatrix Potter pulled a writing table close to her fireplace at Hill Top House, in New Sawrey. Visit this 17th century farmhouse and be taken back to a world where pussycats tended to a roaring fire and rabbits lolled in front of a fire during a Christmas party.

The stunningly huge inglenook fireplace with built-in seating in John Ruskin’s Arts & Crafts home, Brantwood on Coniston will also take you back in time. This is a rather more opulent affair – acres of gardens, a gallery of masterpieces and beautifully crafted furniture.

Keep The Home Fire Burning

One of the joys for many of an open fire or log burner is tending to it. Keep an open fire going by turning logs and maintaining the amber glow from a bed of coal. Don’t overload the fire with dry fuel like paper and card – this just results in more clearing in the morning!

Air flow is important for keeping your log burning stove going. It can be regulated by adjusting vents on the front. Use hardwood fuel for a longer lasting burn as softwood from the likes of conifers burn rapidly. A moisture content of 20% or less is recommended – fresh collected wood can contain up to 65% water, especially in the Lake District!

Whether your job is to stack the logs, stock the coals or empty the fire in the morning, a log burner or open fire is a true pleasure for a cottage holiday for all generations and occasions.
