Luxury cottages in the Lakes are now more popular than ever with the discerning holidaymaker. What could be better than returning from an active day out in Lakeland, than a well-equipped, luxurious 5 star holiday property – a home-from-home in such stunning surroundings? The Victorians knew they were on to something when they started flocking to this glorious corner of England, where mountain and Lakeland scenery combine to lend an air of remote beauty. Like those early tourists, modern-day pilgrims to this part of the world seek comfortable accommodation from which to enjoy the wild splendours of the region. Like their predecessors, modern-day visitors return year after year to discover more about this wonderful part of the country. Where better to kick off your shoes and relax, on a holiday or short break, than in your very own 5 star Lakeland cottage?
