We know that some people just want to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and take a little time out to relax and enjoy the peaceful sights and sounds of the countryside.

So we have decided to create a specially selected accommodation portfolio of rural cottages in the Lake District; properties that have been selected for their rural and peaceful location and that often occupy some of the most beautiful and stunning locations in Cumbria.

Due to their special location our rural cottages are ideal for getting out and about to enjoy `the great outdoors'. These cottages are often ideally placed for enjoying excellent walking holidays with easy access to the network of footpaths that connect the small villages and hamlets that can be found throughout the Cumbrian countryside. Cyclists can get onto quiet country roads to explore the area and there are plenty of opportunities to go off-road too. For those who appreciate our wonderful flora and fauna they won't be disappointed; our countryside accommodation is perfect for a spot of bird watching!

So now you can choose your own rural retreat in the Lake District that truly is away from it all to ensure you come back from your holiday thoroughly refreshed and ready to take on anything!
