Cottages for University of Cumbria Open Days

We are proud to be working with Cumbria University to offer you a range of Lake District holiday cottages so that you can enjoy a short break while you visit the university.  Choosing a university isn’t just about the campus or even the course, it’s also about the area.  Booking one of our stunning holiday cottages lets you put the Lake District to the test, experiencing all there is to see and do in the area as well as spending time at the University of Cumbria to experience all this fantastic university has to offer.

The Lake District is a lot smaller than it looks on a map. Direct links from Ambleside to Keswick and Windermere make it easy to access every corner of the Lakes and you can use Lakelovers Recommends to explore all the best attractions and activities in the area at a better price.

We know that many potential students looking to come to the University of Cumbria have a long drive to get here – and some return the same day.  Each to their own of course but we want to make sure that you have an option to take things a bit slower and spend some time in the area – after all you may spend at least 3 years of your life here!   There’s plenty to see and do here – from exciting outdoor activities like hiking and mountain climbing to quirky attractions and adventures like The Pencil Museum and ghyll scrambling. There’s plenty for all the family to enjoy and this makes your open day a real occasion rather than a journey you might dread.

Book your short break today and see much more of Cumbria than just the University.  There’s a whole world of opportunity just waiting for you when you start to explore the Lake District, becoming a student at this fantastic university is just the start of your adventure.
