How to find cottages in the Lake District UK

Staying in cottages in the English area of the Lake District, whether it is for a quiet weekend or for a longer holiday, is a great alternative to staying in a hotel. Read on for instructions on how to find cottages in the lakes.

Planning where to go

Choose an area
The Lake District covers an area of 885 square miles and is home to hundreds of rental properties.
It might be best to decide on the area you would prefer to stay.
Would your choice be a remote cottage holiday, miles from anywhere, or a cottage close to the many attractions of the area? How big and what amenities?
Next, you need to decide how many people will be staying in the rental cottage with you.
You should also find out in advance how many bedrooms and other amenities you will require to make your cottage holiday an enjoyable experience. What price?
Set a maximum price that you can or are willing to pay.
If you pay too big a percentage of your holiday budget on your chosen accommodation, then you will have to cut back on other expenses during your vacation.

Searching for a property

Travel agents
You could use the services of a travel agent to do all the work for you.
You only have to give them a list of your requirements and preferred dates and they will then inform you of the options that they can find. Online
By doing your own search online, you will find many more options than a travel agency could ever offer you.
Company or individually owned
Some properties are owned by individuals and these can often add a more homely service.
In such cases, the owner usually lives close by, and you can therefore contact him if you have any problems with the cottage.
Thee majority of rental cottages are owned by companies in the tourist industry such as Cottages For You or Cottages UK.
Securing the rental
Once you have decided on which cottage you would like to rent, you should arrange to pay a deposit to secure your booking.
This is most common during busy or peak holiday periods.
