Heron Beck
Nestled in the northwest of England, the Lake District is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful natural locations in the United Kingdom. Known for its rugged fells, glistening lakes, quaint villages and literary history, this stunning national park attracts millions of visitors every year.

One of the best ways to experience the magic of the Lake District is by staying in self catering accommodation. Self catering cottages, cabins and apartments allow you to truly make the most of your Lake District break by providing flexibility, privacy and all the amenities of home.

Why Choose Self Catering in the Lake District?

Self catering accommodation offers numerous benefits for your Lake District holiday:
  • Freedom and flexibility – With self catering, you can come and go as you please and tailor your own schedule. You don’t have to worry about hotel check-in/check-out times or meal times.
  • Home comforts – Self catering cottages provide all the facilities of an apartment or home, including a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge, and separate bedrooms. This allows you to enjoy home-cooked meals and relax.

  • Privacy – You’ll have your own private space to unwind, ideal for families or couples. There’s no need to share facilities with other guests.
  • Value for money – Cooking for yourself saves on the cost of eating out every meal. Self catering rates, especially for longer stays, can provide excellent value.
  • Convenience – Shops and supermarkets are never far away in the Lake District. Stocking up on supplies is easy.
  • Location – Self catering accommodation can often be found in charming rural locations, providing access to walking trails and breathtaking scenery.
