If you are dreaming of a cottage in the country in which to enjoy your holiday then take a look at our fine selection. It’s such a treat to hear the wonderful dawn chorus, see the Spring lambs in the fields or maybe catch a sight of an elusive badger or two – many of our country cottages have comments in their visitors’ books from guests who have seen all manner of wild life..deer, foxes,  red squirrels to name but a few. Patient watchers will be well rewarded.

 

Country cottages come in all shapes and sizes from cosy and ‘just for two’ ….close to Beatrix Potter’s house at Far Sawrey for instance,  to much larger family homes such as Rawfell in Langdale sleeping eight in comfort, and The School a fabulous country house for ten close to Mungrisedale in the north lakes. All come fully equipped and perfect for holidays at any time of the year.
