Lakes Getaways – Holidays in the English Lake District

About Us

Owners of Lakes getaways

Thanks for visiting our website

One of our favourite places to visit is Cartmel. The village store is famous for being the “Home of Sticky Toffee Pudding”

This is us, sitting on our favourite bench above High Dam, with Seymour the dog.

Here we all are in the centre of Hawkshead.

Woodside stocks the Hawkshead Relish company’s products in our welcome tray. 

Our cottages are in the Central and Southern lakes. They are close to all the attractions that the Lake District has to offer.

Just imagine if you stay at Woodside, you can take an early morning walk up to High Dam, one of the most peaceful lakes, that was much favoured by Alfred Wainwright and marvel at the solitude and serenity of this stunning location. Or if you’re staying at Fell View stop for a coffee at one of the many cafes in the area or head to Cartmel and wander its ancient streets!

You can visit Hawkshead or Bowness on Windermere for a bit of retail therapy! All are so easy to reach.

Perhaps you’re like Hugh, my middle son, always looking for something challenging? So just imagine the fun you can have at Grizedale Forest’s  Go Ape, Segwey or mountain biking or just come for the scenery!

What ever the reason you come to the Lakes, like us, it will capture your heart and I am sure you will return many times.
