Family Friendly Short Breaks

Short Breaks in Family Friendly Cottages in the Lake District

We have simply stunning family friendly cottages with 3 and 4 day availability. All across the most popular locations of the Lake District, for that much-needed, rejuvenating escape.
 
From large cottages in Windemere to family accomodation in Coniston. All have been refurbished to the highest of VisitEngland self-catering standards. So you can concentrate on getting the most out of your long weekend away.
 
We have Lake District accommodation offers on all year round. Plus our Lakelovers Recommends discount card for top Lake District attractions and restaurants. The whole family can hop, skip and jump your way through a short break in the Lakes.
We have quality accommodation with facilities that are great for kids and families. Secure and equipped gardens and safe terraces are perfect for burning energy in the great outdoors, whilst parents relax. Private parking outside your house makes unpacking easy and you’ll find high chairs, cots, toddler beds, bathtubs, games and toys inside. Z beds make for flexible sleeping arrangements. Pocket sprung and memory foam mattresses with quality cotton linen promise the ultimate in a good night’s rest.
 
Packing is easy for a Lakelovers mini-break with the family too. As is packing because our holiday accommodation includes free towels and bedding.
 
We know how little ones don’t like travelling, so enjoy journeying by boat on a steam cruise with Windermere Lake Cruises or Coniston Launch. Hire bikes and a baby trailer for all the family and enjoy pram friendly walks, such as Beatrix Potter’s favourite Tarn Hows.
 
No matter what the weather, there’s fun and entertainment for all the family in the Lake District. Award-winning attractions like the Lakes Aquarium on Windermere, The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness and The Puzzling Place in Keswick are firm rainy day activities.
 
Self-catering is particularly suited to all budgets, giving families flexibility to make yummy homemade picnics, store babies milk and weaning purees. Kids can explore the new house and gardens whilst parents enjoy a meal together. Quality kitchen fixtures and appliances, such as large dishwashers and well equipped boot and utility rooms, mean you can spend time on the moments that matter. WiFi and TV packages such as Freeview and Sky come in handy for when down-time is needed too.
 
Family meal planning and cooking is easy breezy with thoughtfully stocked kitchens, including family toasters and pots and pans.
 
From cottages with open plan kitchen and living spaces for all the family to spend time together to sprawling large family cottages, where families have space to spread out and include several bathrooms and en suites so no fighting for the loo, our family friendly short break accommodation scores a 10/10.
