Region Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
Great location and fantastic swimming pool. We enjoyed being able to walk in the gardens grounds of Graythwaite Hall.
The cottage was roomy, comfortable and very well stocked in the kitchen.
