Luxury waterside holiday cottages in Cumbria

Nothing says "and, breathe" like a weekend by the water; in our luxury waterside holiday cottages in Cumbria, modernist lake houses, and private piles set on coveted shores, sweet dreams to the sound of rippling tides become an all-too-easy reality.

Soaring over iconic Lake Windermere, hunkered down among forested hills, and peeking over Cumbrian tarns, our private waterside homes boast the best views and locations in the county. These are places to clink glasses, twirl under twinkling lights, and chat until the wee hours to the sound of lapping waves. There is, perhaps, no greater feeling on earth than dashing to the shoreline for a glacial morning dip, or diving in a tranquil lake while lunch sizzles on the barbecue. An idyllic getaway for families and couples alike, our luxury waterside holiday cottages in Cumbria offer all the restorative properties that cold water therapy brings, but with sumptuous roll top baths to sweeten the deal.

Whether you choose to hole up by the coast, the lake, or the river, what's on the cards is al fresco supper gatherings, crackling fire pits that become s'mores headquarters, and real-life water soundscapes sending the little ones to sleep. Go off-grid in a luxury waterside holiday cottage with private lake access, play cards in the secret garden overlooking the stream, or hunker down in remote farmsteads. We've sourced staycations by babbling rivers, up inland valleys, and soaring over dramatic lakes where stand-up paddle boarders catch the morning light and dogs on their summer holidays sniff out sticks in the shallows. Peaceful restoration comes in waves at these one-of-a-kind waterside homes.
