Cumbria is quite possibly the most beautiful part of England, in the heart of the Lake District. Self Catering Cottages in Cumbria are a very popular choice for people wishing to stay in the Lake District surrounded by lakes, rivers, mountains and valleys.
They give people the chance to not only see but live in the best looking region of the country and staying in one of these cottages is the perfect way to experience the great outdoors. These cottages are obviously a favourite haunt for the walkers and hikers going on their holidays but they are also great getaways for anyone, families, couples, groups of friends or people travelling alone because the cottages come in all shapes in sizes and in all locations.
Some of them are right in the middle of the mountains giving easy access to hundreds of walking routes and also mountain bike trails; whereas other cottages are based near the small towns and villages that are dotted in-between the mountains such as the lovely town of Keswick.
Self Catering Cottages in Cumbria are a great holiday idea for anyone wishing to leave the modern lifestyle, especially for people who live in or near a city and are always surrounded by traffic and noise. They can now go away to Cumbria and see the many spectacular sights which the Lake District has to offer, such as the actual lakes.
Some of the most popular and also best looking lakes include Ullswater, Windermere (which is the largest in England) and Derwent Water which are all beautiful to see and many of the Self Catering Cottages in Cumbria are based near them. As well as the lakes there are majestic mountains towering around them for people to climb if they wish or just walk round and admire, such as Great Gable, Scarfel Pike and Red Pike which are all great climbs with amazing views for the hikers once they reach the top.
Cumbria also has much more to offer visitors such as the Castle at Penrith and the always popular town of Kendal (birthplace of Kendal Mint Cake).
