04-01-19: I don't quite know where this last year has gone - it doesn't seem that long ago since we were welcoming
visitors to the cottage in 2018. Each year there seems to be a different booking pattern and this year seems to be a record for the number of early bookings we have received: many from returning visitors - which is always nice to see.
If you are looking to take a break and visit this lovely part of the world, we can really recommend taking a holiday in April. You've got the pick of the calendar for one thing but what should really clinch it is that the Lake District, in our opinion, is looking its best at this time of the year. Fresh greenery, lovely flowers and what's more, the visitor attractions are open but you have more of them to yourselves without the crowds of the peak season. Have a look at the 'What's on' page and begin to plan your holiday here.
Over the years many of our visitors have enjoyed exploring the beauties of the Lake District on foot or on two wheels so we are especially pleased to have been awarded these two Visit England's Welcome badges again. Those of you wanting to explore on foot will find walking to suit all abilities and stamina: from mountain climbing to gentle strolls. You can access many lovely walks from the cottage gate & if you plan your route carefully, you'll find many delightful refreshment stops. For those who prefer two wheels, either bring your own bike or hire one nearby.
What peace and beautiful scenery - no wonder writers and artists were so inspired.
