Escape with us to the magnificent Lake District

First class, friendly service awaits you at Lakeland Escapes with luxurious cottages in the heart of the beautiful Lake District.

Our family run business will leave no stone unturned to make sure your stay is enjoyable and memorable. Our guests comment on our thoughtful finishing touches and the quality of our cottages. Many feel they have found "hidden gems" - the perfect settings for romantic breaks and family holidays which can be as relaxed or action packed as you choose.

From our distinctive cottages within walking distance of the pretty towns of Windermere and Ambleside, guests can explore many of the Lake District's outstanding sights and locations.

Dove Cottage, Wordsworth's home during most of his creative period, and the Wordsworth Museum are close by. Whilst in Grasmere, why not visit the famous Gingerbread shop? Grizedale Forrest has walks and mountain bike trails to suit all levels plus an amazing 'GoApe' activity complex. The Aquarium of the Lakes lies only a couple of miles beyond on the shores of Lake Windermere. Beatrix Potter World is in Bowness and Hill Top Farm, where she created many of her children's stories, is also in nearby Hawkeshead.

You can explore the views of Windermere from the lake itself with Lake Cruises, between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. Holker Hall & Gardens, a handsome neo-Elizabethan mansion and home to the Lakeland Motor Museum, are only a short distance away and offer magnificent views over Morecambe Bay.

Other attractions nearby include Leven Hall & Gardens, the Ravenglass & Eskdale Steam Railway, South Lakes Wild Animal Park, the tranquil Langdale Valley and Muncaster Castle, to name but a few.

Breath taking views and a huge choice of walks and cycle routes start at the front door. Water sports, horse riding and golf facilities are all within easy reach, and you'll find wonderful restaurants, pubs, cinemas, shops, cafes, etc only five minutes away on foot.

Families, couples and pets are all very welcome at Lakeland Escapes. Compared to the facilities and cost of local hotels and B&Bs, we feel sure you'll be pleasantly surprised at our prices.

Please contact us for any further information.
