Gillbank Holiday Cottage with Scafell in the background and the Boot Inn in the foreground

This 16th Century Cottage rests among the mountains of the famous Lake District National Park. Accessed by private road, the property benefits from an idyllic location in the heart of the Western lakes. With five bedrooms, one ensuite, and two further bathrooms, the property easily sleeps ten people. Recently renovated and refurbished to a high standard, the property boasts the latest in modern convenience while maintaining the intimate features of a classic lakeland cottage. Views of Scafell and the Esk valley greet visitors from the windows and gardens. Numerous walks invite you outdoors - whether for a leisurely stroll among the hills and tarns, a quick trip to one of the two pubs within walking distance, or a serious assault on Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England. Wastwater, the deepest lake in England, is a four mile walk from the property.

The English Lake District with its tranquil lakes, impressive mountains and warm welcome is the perfect place for a holiday, be it for an action packed adventure, a family get together or a relaxing break away from it all. Holiday cottages in the Lake District allow you to do all of these in your home away from home. You can do what you want when you want so if it’s mountain biking on the fells or relaxing in a Lake District Spa you can come back to your holiday cottage (often with open fire or wood burner) and have the space to kick back and relax.

Self catering also gives you the option of eating in or sampling a few different pubs or restaurants in the local area so you can get a real feel for what the Lake District has to offer. Sally’s Lake District Cottages offer fantastic cottages which you can see on their site and if you have a fury friend to bring along many are pet friendly.
