Getting There

How to get to Cumbria

Cumbria is a largely rural region, and as such there are no major airports within the county itself. However, international airports in Blackpool, Manchester and Liverpool are easy enough to reach. National train and bus links run to Windermere, one of Cumbria’s best known towns, although the best option by far is to rent a car and travel to Cumbria by yourself. This will not only get you to your destination more quickly but, more importantly, will also give you the flexibility to see as many of Cumbria’s attractions as possible, many of which are out of the way and require a car to access.

Weather & Climate

Weather in Cumbria: what to expect

Cumbria might get a higher than average amount of rainfall, but don’t let that put you off. The abundance of rain is what makes this area so lush, and it doesn’t really affect the enjoyment of a visit in the same way it might in other places. Spring and summer can bring terrific weather but the chance of rain is ever looming, so make sure to pack waterproof clothing regardless of what time of year you’re staying in Cumbria holiday homes.

Attractions

Cumbria and its attractions

There are endless opportunities for recreation and adventure while you’re in Cumbria, be it immersing yourself in the great outdoors or exploring historic ruins and quaint villages.

Carlisle Castle is one of the county's most popular attractions. This castle is some 900 years old and has survived many wars , giving it one of the most fascinating backstories of any building in England. Carlisle Castle may be the most famous, but there are dozens of other enthralling historical structures in Cumbria, including Medieval- and Norman-period castles as well as Roman forts.

The other major historical landmarks in Cumbria are Furness Abbey, which was established back in 1123 and is still in excellent condition, and Hadrian’s Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was completed in 122 A.D.

The real beauty of Cumbria lies in its natural wonders. Lake Windermere is truly stunning, as are the areas of Derwentwater and Ullswater. Spend any time in these parts and you’ll be experiencing the very best of Cumbria.

People travel from all over the world to enjoy the wonderful outdoor pursuits on offer in the Lake District. Visitors can choose from hundreds of hiking and cycling trails, or head out on to the water for a spot of kayaking or canoeing amid staggering vistas.

Family Activities

Cumbria for children

Cumbria holiday lettings offer something for all members of the family. The county is a natural playground which can inspire children to experiment and engage with the natural world; they can skim stones, play on the banks of the lakes or run in the many parks that are dotted throughout the area.

There are also plenty of family-friendly attractions. At Walby Farm Park, kids can play with the animals, test their bravery in the adventure playground or take a ride on the mini tractors and trucks.

Animal lovers will also relish a visit to South Lakes Wild Animal Park, home to a large and diverse collection of animals including lions, tigers, kangaroos and monkeys, among many others.

Alternatively, inspire your children with a trip to The World of Beatrix Potter, a small museum located in Bowness-in-Windermere that brings the tales of Peter Rabbit and friends to life.

Local conveniences

Self-catering with Cumbria holiday lettings

Cumbria is a predominately rural region, but guests in Cumbria holiday lettings will have no trouble finding delicious food during their stay. Almost all villages will have independent stores selling high quality meats and vegetables. As this is an agricultural area, there are many farmers' markets where you can buy in-season vegetables to enjoy back at Cumbria holiday homes. These markets take place all across Cumbria on practically every day of the week, with key events in Kendal, Keswick, Carlisle and Pooley Bridge.
