Holiday Cottages Cumbria
Holiday cottages Cumbria are an immensely popular holiday choice in the UK. This far north-western corner of England is home to some of the most spectacular scenery you are ever likely to glimpse anywhere on earth. This is mainly down to the fact that Cumbria is where you will find the magnificent Lake District National Park.
Cumbria is one of England’s largest counties, in terms of square miles, and has a border with Scotland to the north, Lancashire to the south and Northumberland to the east. There is a long coastline to the west of the county, on the Irish Sea, and this is where you will find quaint fishing ports and real examples of what life in Cumbria would have been like in days gone by. Holiday cottages Cumbria should be able to cater for exactly this insight, if that is what you are looking for?
Carlisle is the county’s largest city and the definite place for ‘shopaholics’ to head for. Whilst in the city, take time out to visit Carlisle Castle which is said to date as far back as 1092 and is actually associated with the son of no other than William the Conqueror. Some of the buildings in Carlisle are known to have been built using the stones from Hadrian’s wall itself. There are a number of holiday cottages Cumbria in the north of the county that will provide you with easy access to the largest city.
The Lake District National Park occupies much of the central land area of the county. This landscape is dominated by numerous picturesque lakes, all surrounded by the very highest mountains in all of England. Holiday cottages Cumbria in this neck of the woods offer the chance to take part in a number of activities: be this anything from leisurely nature walks, to more adrenaline-pumping pursuits for the more steadfast.
Some other towns that are well worth the trip out of your holiday cottages Cumbria for are Kendal, Keswick, Ambleside, Windermere and Penrith. The most popular spot for tourists in the county is around England’s largest lake – Windermere; but to be honest, some time really does need to be set aside to witness what all of the fuss is about for yourself: this is definitely a spot where you’ll be annoyed if you forget to bring your camera.
Holiday cottages Cumbria really do enable the family to come together and make the most of their precious holiday. Their cosy charm and welcoming ambiance will make for an atmosphere that is very difficult to vacate at the end of your stay.
If you are planning on booking holiday cottages Cumbria, you really should expect to prepare yourself for some unpredictable weather. You should be especially prepared if you are planning on taking any long nature walks or rambling trips in the Lake District.
