In the words of Alfred Wainwright writing about his beloved Lake District:

“Oh, how can I put into words the joys of a walk over country such as this; the scenes that delight the eyes, the blessed peace of mind, the sheer exuberance which fills your soul as you tread the firm turf? This is something to be lived, not read about.”

We are passionate about this beautiful region, which has so much to offer and look forward to sharing it with you.

Next up is location and we know how important this is for a dream countryside getaway. The choice is yours. Perhaps you’d like to find yourself tucked at the foot of a fell or staying in a chocolate-box hamlet and within walking distance of a traditional pub; alternatively basking on the shores of our beloved Lake Windermere will send you into a dreamy state; or hearts may fill with joy at the thought of a contemporary abode within the bustling beating centre of the region that is Ambleside.

The towns and villages in the Lakes are renowned for their warm welcome to dogs, and we have over 300 cottages where you can your dog will feel right at home.
