Explore, discover, relax, experience Summer breaks in the Lakes

Attention Lakelovers! Summer’s here and the living is easy. What better way to celebrate than by spending some time in one of our wonderful Lake District cottages? In addition to the activities and outstanding natural beauty that has made the Lake District one of the most popular places to spend summer breaks, this year more than ever, there are a multitude of country shows and festivals to make your summer in the Lakes just that little bit more exciting. Lakelovers have a range of cottages scattered throughout the Lake District, so you can place yourself in prime position for a perfect summer holiday.

Summer home-from-home

There are, of course, times when you may just want to spend your summer break kicking back and enjoying some relaxing time out with family or friends. Our stunning Lake District cottages are set in some of the most stunning areas of natural beauty and are superbly fitted, whatever the weather.

Unwind to cheery summer hits whilst cooking up a gourmet feast in your designer-fitted kitchen. Or slow down and enjoy the long light summer evenings, taking in spectacular views from your Juliette balcony, riverside patio or outdoor hot tub.

You’ll not be able to resist the inviting waters of Lake Windermere, historical villages surrounding the popular Summer holiday destination of Ambleside, popular walking valley of Great Langdale and gastronomic treats of Cartmel; just some of the summer holiday delights waiting for you.

Taste the Lake District this summer

The Lake District has excellent locally produced, seasonal food and drink. Cumberland sausages, Salt Marsh Lamb, elderberries and blackcurrants are just a few of the regions summer specialties. A family barbeque or something altogether more gastronomic, enjoyed from the comfort of one of our Lake District cottages, is a sure way to put a smile on the faces of your nearest and dearest.

A Good Read

Once you’re fed and watered, putting your feet up and enjoying a good book in beautiful surroundings is a guaranteed to deliver some much-needed R&R. Why not get a little closer to the Lake District by selecting a top regional read.

A Shepherds Tale, by James Rebanks, is a perfect summer holiday book! It’s the evocative story of the author’s life in the Lake District. In contrast, you may choose to delve into the Lake District’s romantic past by selecting something by William Wordsworth, enjoyed on a “breezeless summer night” to the sound of returning summer swallows and busy honey bees. Alternatively plan your next adventure by thumbing through one of Wainwrights famous walking guides.

Whatever your budget, a summer holiday in the Lake District has something for everyone and enjoying it in a unique and hand-picked Lakelovers cottage will ensure you the best summer break possible.
