Self-catering holiday rentals in the Lake District for your home stay


The mountains and lakes of the Lake District have inspired poets and writers over the centuries. On your doorstep will be the beautiful lakes that give this area its name. There are more than a dozen lakes to enjoy, all an easy drive through beautiful countryside from your holiday lettings in the Lake District. The biggest, Lake Windermere, features boat rides which are an ideal group activity for all the family on your summer holidays in the Lake District. The Lake District's mountains, the fells, can form anything from an easy afternoon stroll to a demanding climb for the more experienced. The natural beauties of this area will take your breath away. And there is so much more to enjoy. The picturesque town of Keswick has an outdoor theatre which features annual festivals of plays. There is also a pencil museum, something the children will always remember. Jazz fans may want to time their visit to coincide with the annual Keswick Jazz Festival, with a growing reputation that means you are sure to enjoy every concert you go to.


Holiday lettings in the Lake District for your short break


What could be more traditional than choosing an old stone-built cottage for you and your family for the summer holidays in the Lake District? Perhaps you will choose one in a small village, with the fells just above you. Or you could choose a magnificent converted farmhouse with all the grandeur that you can think of for your short break in the Lake District with a large group. These holiday rentals will truly meet and, indeed, exceed your expectations of what vacation lettings in the Lake District can be. For a romantic getaway, we can recommend holiday apartments in the Lake District, many of them set in beautiful towns such as Keswick or in villages like Grange-over-Sands, bordering on the lakes themselves and with all the facilities of that the locals enjoy on your own doorstep. Just make sure you take your walking boots and be ready for the holiday of a lifetime.


The best time to enjoy the Lake District


Summer brings the warmest temperatures to the Lake District and that's ideal for school holidays in your holiday lettings. The weather is perfect for an idle day spent in the local village where you've chosen your holiday cottage. Or it might be time for a trip to Lake Coniston, and a boat trip to relax and take in the scenery. In spring and autumn you'll find the ideal time to enjoy a long walk up the fells. Spring of course brings the daffodils that so inspired Wordsworth in his most famous poem. Every season has its attractions, easily enjoyed from your holiday rentals in the Lake District. If you choose a romantic winter getaway in holiday rentals in the Lake District, several of the small villages have Christmas fairs for you to enjoy. With Owners Direct you can be sure of a safe and secure booking for your holiday rent
