Lake District Holiday Cottages

Lake District

For those of us who love the Lake District, well known for its natural beauty and wide variety of outdoor activities, it is a life long quest to publicise and educate all those who are interested in holidaying in such a wonderful part of the world.

Independent of the weather the Lake District can also help visitors to step back in time at one of South Lakeland's historic houses or fascinating museums, relax on a lake cruise or steam railway or follow in the footsteps of great literary characters like William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and John Ruskin who all lived in the Southern Lake District and whose homes you can visit.

Its most commonly recognised peaks of Scaw Fell and Helvelyn are only two of a vast number of climbers and hikers perfect routes. Many international climbing expeditions have started off in The Lake District as a training ground.

Children can come face to face with animals from around the world at two wildlife centres, an aquarium and a sheep and wool centre or enjoy a magical indoor recreation of Beatrix Potter's famous characters. The whole family can explore deep underground in a slate mine too.

If you are looking for a souvenir of your visit, there are working potteries, photographic, art and craft galleries, design studios and plenty of other shopping opportunities, including an outlet centre in Kendal.

For those who want to get active, there's a climbing wall, leisure centre and a high wire adventure experience in Grizedale Forest!

These are just a few ideas for great days out in South Lakeland.

A fantstic place to start your holiday if you are looking for Lake District Holiday Cottages.
