Luxury Self-Catering Cottages

Luxury Self-Catering in the UK

Luxury self-catering is for holidaymakers looking for something a little extra. Space is one of the main reason for choosing a self-catering holiday and with a luxury option, you get stacks of it! Couples can bask in style in a 1 bedroom luxury apartment or luxury interior designed lodge, in a desirable location and with exclusive access to private grounds. For groups and visitors looking for properties to suit several families, Lakelovers luxury self-catering accommodation could be just the tonic for a hassle-free experience.

Stacks of Space

A holiday in Lake District gives you over 3,000 kilometres of rights of way, 12 of the UK’s largest lakes and over 200 peaks. This is some of the very best breathing space in the UK and so it’s easy to understand why holidaymakers choose this beautiful region when looking for some space to let go, relax and have some fun.

Whether you are a top of Scar Fell Pike, wandering the historic hamlets of Grasmere and Hawkshead, or on a cruise gliding over Lake Windermere, the Lake District gives you space to breath.

And space is something that Lakelovers luxury cottages in the UK have in abundance. We have great big banquet dining tables for celebratory meals that run into the early hours. Accommodation offering suites for several families, with private sleeping and bathrooms and open-plan socialising spaces are perfect for get-togethers. Sprawling detached barn conversion with acres of private land and gardens are ideal for guests to spread out.

Plus, with self-catering you can enjoy your holiday to your own agenda. Breakfast at midday, why not. Lunch outside, whilst the kids play in the private gardens, of course. Don’t want to eat out every day? Self-catering is great as you can make delicious packed lunches to take with you as you enjoy the adventures and activities that fill the Lake District.

The Lake’s has become famous for award-winning producers and artisan delights, and we’d recommend you sampling some.

Try the cheeses from Cartmel, the famous Herdwick lamb, Cumberland Sausage, Hawkshead Relishes, Morecambe Bay cockles, and not to mention the alluring range of micro-breweries and regional distilleries, such as the award-winning Lakes Distillery in Bassenthwaite.

If you’re planning a holiday away with a large group but luxury isn’t a priority our large cottages in the Lake District may be of interest. All of our cottages are independently regulated by VisitEngland and are 3-5 star rated. This doesn’t mean we don’t welcome pets, as we have a great selection of dog friendly luxury cottages.

Whether you’re looking for large 5 star luxury cottages or luxury cottages for two, we have been providing quality self-catering in the Lake District for over 40 years and have gained an enviable reputation that you can trust, especially with your luxury break that we know means so much to you.

Hot Tubs & Health Suites

Looking for self-catering with hot tub, sauna, indoor pools, beauty and health suites and leisure club access? With Lakelovers luxury self-catering accommodation this is exactly what you can expect.

A day enjoying the boutique shopping of upmarket Bowness-on-Windermere, a cruise across Lake Windermere, and a lazy, sociable luncheon at the stylish Angel Inn would be perfectly complete with a soak in your very own private hot tub enjoying a glass of sparkles and the heady views out onto the spectacular Lake District landscape.

The Lake District is the UK’s premier adventure capital. Whether you are passionate about outdoor adventure or not, when you visit the unique landscape of the Lake District, you’ll want to get stuck in. There are all-weather and all-ability activities and we all know that time spent outdoors has restorative and health-giving benefits.

For exercise buffs, the opportunity to fill your lungs with fresh air on an early morning wild run or adrenalin rush of the hairpins and mountain terrain of Whinlatter or Grizedale Forest mountain bike trails, is like no other. As an extra for our luxury self-catering guests, many of our luxury cottages have inclusive leisure club access where you can get up a sweat in one of the region’s premier clubs, before returning for a relax in your holiday cottage.

You could then set the health benefits of your rural retreat deeper still with some luxurious pampering. Lakelovers luxury customers often choose to book our in-house beauty service, where our professional pampering service is delivered right to your holiday cottage. This is a particularly nice extra touch for making a celebration that bit more special and also perfect for a romantic holiday. Please ask our customer service team for more information about My Personal Sanctuary.

Cinema & Concierge

Whilst we can dream of being Batman and having our very own butler, Alfred, you can still have all of your holiday desires met with a luxury self-catering Lake District break. Our luxury cottages feature the very best in technology and entertainment. Think flat screens in opulent bathrooms, cinema rooms and wireless music systems. Wine coolers, range cookers and coffee makers in a chic designer kitchen makes cooking a real pleasure. Interior designers make sure every comfort is met, from window seats and al fresco dining to top of the range bathroom suites.

We have hand-picked the very best locations to offer secluded and private accommodation with the convenience and buzz of nearby towns, where rich breakfast’s, light luncheon’s and fine dining await.

Authentic Lake District

It is the Lake District’s rich and unique culture and heritage that draws many to come and explore this popular UK holiday destination.

The spectacular mountainous landscape, the result of 500 million years of breathtaking natural processes, and its unique communities, have been inspiring some of the most famous pieces of literature and art for decades.

And the remarkable landscape and its traditional customs in many parts remains very much as it did in the 19th Century when this was an artist’s idyll, where poets wondered the fells and sat for hours taking in the landscape that was so different from the bustle of urban and industrial life.

A self-catering holiday puts you in the very heart of all of this, giving you a truly authentic experience of this special part of the world. Bask in the tranquil sounds of distant fell sheep and the clinking of sailboats bobbing on crystal clear waters. Walk the well-trodden paths of literary greats, like Wordsworth, Keats and Coleridge, drinking in the views of jagged mountains and rolling countryside. And enjoy the hive of activities that this unique landscape is famous for – on foot, bike, sail or saddle – there’s space for all.

If you need further advice about the range of extra’s that we offer our luxury accommodation guests, please contact our helpful customer service team on 015394 88855 or enquiries@lakelovers.co.uk.
