Cumbria & Lake District Locations

Beach in Cumbria

The peaceful village of Longsleddale in the South Lakeland district is the perfect location for a restful getaway in the Lake District with its rolling green fields, pretty country houses and farmland. Close by in Cumbria, is the town of Kendal which has a fine selection of shopping opportunities, leisure activities, restaurants and public houses, meaning you can enjoy the best of both worlds with a peaceful getaway with everything you need close to your door step.

Appleby is a fabulous location mixing the quiet country retreat with all the amenities in the centre of the town. Appleby has a great selection of shops, pubs and restaurants for you to enjoy during your cottage holiday in the Lake District. You can also enjoy long walks in the Eden Valley and surrounding fells taking in its fine scenery and spotting its wonderful wildlife. Appleby has the added benefit of being within easy access to both the Dales and the Lake District via the M6.  

Be sure to take a trip to Kendal when in the area. This traditional town market is a popular place to visit. With Castle Howe and Castle Kendal, the Museum of Lakeland Life, and a number of places to enjoy a bite to eat or a refreshing drink there are plenty of places to enjoy. We also have some cute cottages nearby to this location, which are also ideally located for exploring the rest of Cumbria and the Lake District.

At Red Rose Holiday Cottages, we have a selection of holiday homes in beautiful locations within the Cumbria and Lake District area. Many of our cottages are positioned well for getting to the M6 which allows for superb access to all of this area. We have larger properties too in our portfolio so why not bring your family or friends along for a memorable break in this fabulous part of England.
