You may have seen Cumbria in the news thanks to the weather this winter. Well here's some good news... The region is very much open for business - and there's no need to pack your wellies.  

We’ve been out and about this week snapping shots of the most fantastic areas Cumbria has to offer. I think you will agree the current shots really show how beautiful this region is… a far cry from the images we saw back last year. 

In the affected areas, the floodwater receded weeks ago and the clean-up operation has been a huge success. Thanks to money raised in the flood appeal and the incredible hard work of many volunteers, Cumbria is ready for the start of the holiday season. All it needs now is you.

Cumbria – gritty and determined as ever – are doing what they’ve always done: rolling out the red carpet to give visitors and guests the traditional warm welcome for which they are so well known.

It’s vast array of shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions are open and waiting for you to discover. From picking up unique hand-made crafts to sampling locally brewed craft beer, you can help to support Cumbria and its local businesses on your holiday this spring. 

There’s so much to see in this beautiful part of England. Explore soaring mountains, relax by tranquil lakes, and admire stunning views - all within easy reach when you stay at any of our cottages.
