Amazing setting for weekend breaks in the Lakes

Forget weekends in Paris when you can choose a cosy stone cottage in Cumbria! There are so many beautiful weekend options, like luxury apartments in Keswick and Windermere, friendly family run guesthouses on the Lake District coast close to seaside fun in places like St Bees or Whitehaven, historic abbeys and some of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the country - check out the exquisite Lake District Peninsula!

If you're looking for the ultimate in romantic breaks in the Lake District then consider the romantic weekend break setting of the country pub or inn. Perfect in winter or summer, with guaranteed friendly atmosphere, and warm welcoming environment.

Weekend Cottages in The Lakes

Many idyllic Lake District stone cottages are available just for renting over a weekend break. If you're looking for a self-catering option, with a home from home feel and fully equipped facilities such as fitted kitchen, this is the choice for you whether it's a family weekend break getaway to the Lakes or an intimate romantic weekend break for two.

To get the best deals on price we recommend you do a date search with some flexibility on your arrival or departure dates and location within the Lakes. There is no consistent ‘changeover day’ for cottages, although most are either Friday or Saturday. But if you are flexible we can draw in many more results and you are much more likely to find a bargain.

Amenities do vary from cottage to cottage so it's worth making a list of your specific requirements, rather than just relying on an attractive photograph. Think about issues like accessibility, whether you're bringing a pet (is the holiday cottage Pet Friendly?), do you have very young children, what exactly is included in the price, will you be located near shops, restaurants or pubs and is smoking permitted? In short, start by working out what your particular needs are before booking your weekend break in Cumbria.

Weekend Golf Breaks in Cumbria

Fancy a fishing weekend break in Ulverston?? Fishing Weekend Breaks are numerous across the Lake District. Guests often have free use of passes for the Windermere, Ambleside & District Angling Association included in the price of the accommodation. This gives you the opportunity to access many miles of excellent game & coarse fishing in Lake District waters without having to worry about organising permits and so forth! You'll find that many accommodation venues, including hotels and guest houses in the Lake District have fishing licenses, giving you easy access to fishing areas near by - brilliant!

Golf courses and golf weekend breaks are a speciality of the Lake District. From the golfing experience of the golf course right on the edge of the Lake District Peninsula on serene Walney Island (watch out your golf ball doesn't end up in the Irish Sea!) to the challenge of the 18 hole parkland golf course on Derwentwater, four miles east of Keswick. This course is set against the stunning backdrop of Blencathra, Skiddaw and Clough Head. Expect to be distracted by such Lake District backdrops.
