Egremont Castle, western Lake District

Self Catering cottages West Lake District

Here is a browseable listing of our holiday cottages in the West Lake District area of Cumbria. This is the most popular area of the Lakes for holday makers, and with good reason. Take a steam gondola ride on Lake Windermere or Coniston Water, visit Dove Cottage, the home of Lakeland poet William Wordsworth, or Hilltop, the home of children's author Beatrix Potter. Or, pack a lunch, put on your hiking boots and enjoy walking in some of England's finest scenery. Please click on the name of a cottage to see details of that property, select a location from the menu below, choose from our full list of Cumbria self catering locations, or use the search form to the right. The map shows locations within the North Cumbria region as well as cottage locations in the surrounding areas. For alternative accommodation, see our Cumbria hotel guide.
