Make A Holiday Rental Cottage in Braithwaite, Cumbria, Your Home Away From Home

The village of Braithwaite is situated at the northern edge of The Lake District National Park, in the county of Cumbria, in the far north-west of England. You should find that spending your holidays in Braithwaite is particularly ideal as you have all you could wish for in this part of the world on your very own doorstep. There are a myriad activities to keep you busy throughout your stay; as well as numerous picturesque and interesting places to visit. If you think the idea of spending some time in a cosy and well-appointed self catering cottage is up your street, Braithwaite will prove to be an excellent choice for you.

Things to Do on Holiday in Braithwaite, Cumbria

Most people head to The Lake District in order to be able to get out and about and really explore this wilderness of England and this will be entirely possible on your holidays in Braithwaite. To start with the tamer and more leisurely choices of activities that are widely available in the area, you have the likes of swimming, tennis, nature walking and there are brilliant chances to sight ospreys in the lakes if you are into ornithology. For those looking for more action, or even adrenaline-pumping fun, you may choose to participate in activities such as abseiling, paragliding, white-water rafting and canoeing.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Braithwaite, Cumbria

Whilst spending your holidays in Braithwaite, you really should try and explore more of the Lake District. You will be ideally placed close enough to all of the main lakes in the area - but it is usually Lake Windermere that the majority of tourists come to the area to visit. After all, this is the largest lake in all of England. This is also where you will find the majority of the facilities for tourists - with the village of Bowness proving to be a particular draw. Other towns that should feature on your sightseeing list include Keswick, which is only a few miles to the east of Braithwaite, Penrith and Kendal. As you will be based so close to the Scottish border, you may even fancy venturing a little farther up the M6 motorway and head into the beautiful region of Dumfries and Galloway.

Weather in Braithwaite, Cumbria

Visitors on their holidays in Braithwaite, and Cumbria as a whole, find that taking waterproof clothing is an absolute must. You see, the Lake District can easily receive well over 40 inches of rainfall per year; some higher spots will be even more than this - so do come prepared for heavy rainfall at any time of the year. Temperatures wise, the average during July will be around 19 degrees Celsius; and in January this is more likely to be around 6 or 7 degrees.

Travel to Braithwaite, Cumbria

If you decide to travel to your self catering accommodation in Braithwaite by car (which is by far the best way!), you will find that the village is actually very well connected. The M6 motorway is very close-by, as is the A66 which just bypasses the settlement. If you decide to fly to the area, the best option will probably prove to be Manchester Airport (MAN) which is a relatively short drive down the M6. It would definitely be advisable to arrange a hire car for collection from the airport to get you to your cottage in Braithwaite.

Puddleduck House was by the the cleanest and best equipped we have ever stayed in. The wine, roses and homemade cake were a lovely touch. Chloe was so helpful with everything. I chatted to Sue the cleaner and she was lovely and its very obvious that she works hard to keep the house as clean as it is. This was our first time staying in Coniston but won't be our last.

Was so lucky to book this lodge last minute and what a lovely surprise. There was nothing at all to criticise. Everything was spotless, bedding and towels were clean, beds were lovely and comfortable, masses of storage space., Everything you would need is provided, you really wouldn't need to bring anything.. The owner obviously cares about giving value for money. Good phone signal, Sky TV, good wifi, lots of sockets. 5 stars!!! Would definitely reccommend (have already done so) and would love to come back again. Nice and quiet where the lodge is situated. A few minutes walk to Reception and main gate and a short stroll down to the Marina. Just beautiful. The site is very presented. Didn't use the facilities much as we were sightseeing a lot. It all looked very nice though and the staff were really helpful and friendly. So happy we picked this lodge and wish we'd booked for longer, will definitely be back. Thank you!! Tips.... There is a service station shop to the right of the site about 10 minutes walk for supplies. There is also a handy supermarket by Windermere station.. Buses are frequent and buses stop on opposite sides of the road. The is no sign on the opposite side. Cross over for Windermere. Short journeys worked out cheaper by taxi. £7.50 to Bowness, bus was £4.50 each. Reception will call a taxi for you. We bought an explorer bus ticket for £11 for the day, (can also get 3 days) hop on and off and it conveniently stops at all attractions. Excellent value and a great way to see the lakes and the scenery is stunning Lovely trip on the boat from Bowness to Ambleside. Also Keswick is such a lovely town. There is a very helpful Irish bus man at Windermere station if you need advice and Tourist Information is right by the station
