Luxury Short Breaks

Lakelovers short breaks in the Lake District

Treat yourself to a relaxing escape to the country from our collection of luxury short breaks in the Lake District. Choose from a cosmopolitan break in a vibrant town like Bowness, with cocktail bars and entertainment on your doorstep, or whisk a loved one away to a boutique hideaway, where self-catering gives you privacy and flexibility to enjoy your holiday your way. Our luxury short breaks are all about lazy breakfasts, a wander down a country lane to the local bakery and village shop for a paper and pastries. Then a lakeshore stroll followed by getting dressed up for a dinner and theatre trip.

We have an enviable range of luxury short breaks, including family-friendly cottages with beautifully fitted out kitchens that are perfect for spending quality time enjoying cooking regional produce, with little chefs soaking up precious family time. Spoil the family with large, secure gardens where children love being outdoors letting their imaginations run wild as they create their own Swallows and Amazons adventures. Grown-ups will enjoy spilling out onto heated balconies and terraces to drink in the breath-taking scenery that feels a world away from the rush of day-to-day life. 

Let us also show you our luxury large properties that will whisk you away into a relaxed world of entertaining and easy socialising with cinema rooms including sports and movie channels, state-of-the-art music systems and games rooms complete with pool table as well as bars and wine cellars. Our short break accommodation has everything you need so there is no need to leave your cottage, giving you more time to spend with your guests.  All hand-picked and VisitEngland accredited to offer the very best luxury break for when you need it. 

Within 2-hours you can leave Manchester, London, Bristol or Leeds, for example, and be in the Lake District National Park, home to some of England’s most impressive scenery, including the largest natural freshwater lake and tallest mountain, dramatically towering over the peaceful valleys below. And escaping to the country does not mean leaving some of the finer things in life. Indeed, here in the Lake District, due to the region’s farming heritage, the Lake District attracts some of the finest chefs to restaurants like L’enclume, The Forest Side, Holbeck Ghyll, The Samling, The Old Stamp House and Gilpin Spice to name a few.  For us, a short break is about packing indulgence in at every opportunity. The Lakes is also home to some of the best health and spa resorts in the country that take advantage of the region’s freshwater and mountain air. Or perhaps your outdoor fix comes from a round of golf or a hack on horseback, of which there is plenty of choice. 

We have properties available for 3-4 nights, where you can choose exactly what you want to suit your tastes and how you plan to spend your short break time.  

Discover luxury boathouse apartments that are ideal for indulging those with a love of water sports, from yachting to fishing and also great for a relaxing and soothing break. A rural mountain chalet or luxury lodge is the best way for anyone looking for peace and quiet and looking to head into the mountains to recharge and enjoy some WiFi downtime.
