Awesome scenery, fabulous panoramic views, lakes, mountains and forests make Cumbria one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK. At Handpicked Cottages we offer a great choice of Luxury Holiday Cottages and places to stay in Cumbria.
Cumbria is an utterly beautiful region famous for its valleys, lakes, forests, waterfalls and mountains. It is highly desirable for walkers who enjoy the serene atmosphere of the Lake District and surrounding countryside. However, nature also provides a playground for more adventurous sports, and fascinating attractions for history and culture vultures. Of course, a host of country pubs and restaurants make your stay in a Cumbrian cottage all the more enjoyable.
Any holiday in Cumbria must feature at least a day exploring the most dramatic landscapes on foot. However, you can also witness sites such as Lake Windermere via cruise, kayak, stand-up paddleboard and more, or try cycling through the valleys. There are also several old-fashioned steam railways in Cumbria, a unique way to see the undulating hills with ease. Visit Wordsworth House in Cockermouth, to learn more about the poet's work, or Dora's Field at Rydal, where he planted hundreds of his famous daffodils in memory of his daughter. There really is everything in Cumbria - nature, culture and more.
