lake district cottages for 2 to 4

Cottages in the Lake District Sleeps 2-4

All self catering accommodation in the Lake District, sleeping 2 to 4 people

Whether you are travelling to the Lake District alone, in a couple, as a family or with friend, we have a huge selection of luxury properties for 2 to 4 people. Locations are across the national park from town centre apartments and traditional Lakeland cottages, to luxury barn conversions and converted farmhouses.

No matter what you are coming to the Lakes for, be it to walk, cycle, and spend quality time together or simply relax, our holiday homes are all hand-picked and unique. For walkers in the South Lakes, there’s nowhere better to stay than Coniston or Langdale. Many of the most popular walking routes start or end in these villages. Walk or run Old Man of Coniston or scale England’s highest mountain Scafell Pike in the Great Langdale Pikes. With a selection of fabulous routes available right from your doorstep, you will be spoiled for choice of where your adventure will take you when you stay in these areas.

Looking to relax and take some time to yourself? Perhaps use your well-earned week off to indulge in a spa treatment or two, or a good old ‘gym and swim’? Lakelovers have partnered with exclusive spa hotels across the district, to offer our guests reduced price leisure passes. Meaning you can still enjoy the home-from-home comfort of a private cottage holiday. But without giving up on the little luxuries of swimming pools, saunas and gymnasiums. Take some YOU time at the MacDonald Old England Spa in Bowness, The Salutation Hotel and Spa in Ambleside or The Wordsworth Hotel and Spa in Grasmere. You can also get yourself a range of beauty treatments at the Low Wood Bay Spa in Ambleside. These are a few to think about while staying in South Lakeland.

If you are looking for a bit of night life during your break in South Lakeland, you may want to consider a property in Ambleside, Bowness or Windermere. There you will find a wide range of restaurants and bars open until late; throughout the week and weekend. A local favourite for drinks is The Lily in Ambleside, which also has the fantastic modern italian restaurant Tarantella next door! You can even enjoy a few glasses in The Lily, while you wait for your table and they will come and get you when it’s ready! Ambleside also offers Zefferelli’s restaurant and cinema, where you can literally get dinner and movie in one place. Perfect for spending some quality time with your loved one.

If you’re travelling to the Lakes with children, you will probably be wondering how you can keep them occupied. As many of our team are parents, we understand that keeping the small people busy on holiday. As well as fed and watered and close to a bathroom can be hard work. That’s why we have a collection of family friendly properties that offer all kinds of little added features. From large gardens and second living rooms with flat screen TVs, to games consoles and pool tables. We also recommend Ambleside Climbing Wall, Brockhole: The Lake District Visitors Centre, The Lakes Aquarium and Tale Trails: story walks in Ullswater and there are various play parks and child-friendly walks throughout the Lakes park.

Don’t forget that we also have over a hundred pet friendly properties in our portfolio. So you don’t have to worry about leaving your treasured friends behind AND with Lakelovers, pets stay for Free. You don’t have to leave your pet in the cottage all day long either. As there are many places across the district that welcome pets, provided they come with well-behaved owners. Such as the Ullswater Steamers and The Sun Inn at Pooley Bridge.

For more advice on our properties for two to four, why not speak to one of our expert customer service team members, who can answer any questions you may have and help you find the perfect Lake District break.
