Castle Carrock Cottage

Castle Carrock Cottage, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Castle Carrock Cottage, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Click to book Castle Carrock Cottage now: from £200 per night Set on the outskirts of the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this cottage is a country retreat with a touch of luxury. Views of the rolling hills and Castle Carrock reservoir are plentiful from every room of the house, though best of all from the patio hot tub. If you fancy a bit more privacy, the deep free-standing tub is perfect for soaking away the stress. While it's tempting to lie back and do very little at this home, the surrounding area is full of outdoor activities. Try your hand at sailing, canoeing or fishing on the reservoir or follow one of the many walking routes that snake Eden Valley. If the weather isn't playing ball, all stays have complimentary access to the nearby leisure club, which has a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, swimming pool, and gym. Hadrian's Wall is less than a 30-minute drive, as is the city of Carlisle, which has several fascinating museums and a beautiful cathedral. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Little Peter Rabbit

Little Peter Rabbit, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Little Peter Rabbit, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Click to book Little Peter Rabbit now: from £99 per night A short drive away from Windermere village, this cosy home is ideally located to explore the Lake District’s most famous towns. Paying homage to the English countryside, you’ll find quirky design elements throughout, including rabbit motifs on cushions, a suede forest green couch and a handy map of the area’s pub stops in the loo. In the bedroom, a vibrant red wall, plaid cushions and rust chairs add pops of colour to brighten up the space. Perfect for a couple on a romantic getaway, this cosy flat has a patio where you can sip a glass of wine and stargaze after a day discovering the area’s natural beauty, shops and cafes. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Starry Night Barn

Starry Night Barn, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Starry Night Barn, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Click to book Starry Night Barn now: from £99 per night Deep within England's beautiful Lake District, this newly renovated address is slightly different to similar properties in that it's actually two self-contained units in one. Each of the king-size bedrooms has its own kitchen and living room, which makes it an ideal holiday home for two couples that enjoy each other's company but less so each other's cooking. Of course, you can skip home cuisine altogether by dining out in the nearby towns of Windermere, Grasmere and Ambleside, or by packing a picnic and taking it on one of the huge selection of hiking routes that surround this property. Unless the weather forecast's a complete wash-out, we can't imagine you'll be using this home as anything more than a place to rest up weary limbs ahead of the next day's adventuring, but its comfy furnishings and home entertainment options will see you through a rainy afternoon — or lazy day. When it gets dark, you can take full advantage of the secluded location by looking up through the skylight at the cosmos above, free of light pollution and glittering with millions of stars. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Punchbowl Cottage

Punchbowl Cottage, Plum Guide home in Yorkshire, UK

Punchbowl Cottage, Plum Guide home in Yorkshire, UK

Click to book Punchbowl Cottage now: from £130 per night Over the last two hundred years, this cosy cottage has had a rich history. It’s been a hayloft and the village pub, but we think it’s best in its current guise, as a quirky retreat for couples, friends or families. Based in the tranquil village of Grayrigg, it’s in the perfect location for exploring the dramatic landscapes of the Lake District. You’re twenty-five minutes from Windermere and just over half an hour to Ullswater. The Yorkshire Dales are within easy reach too. Pack a picnic and spend your days rambling round the lakes and Dales, marvelling at the dazzling views. A boat trip on one of the lakes makes a memorable experience, and the pretty villages dotted round the neighbouring countryside are worth a stop too. The bustling market town of Kendal is just ten minutes up the road, with its twelfth-century castle, lively pubs, and all the amenities you might need to stock up. Make your way back home, step through the century-old door, and get the wood burner fired up, before settling in for an evening of conversation, laughter and togetherness. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Hideaway Thatch

Hideaway Thatch, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Hideaway Thatch, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Click to book Hideaway Thatch now: from £90 per night Straight out of a fairytale, this cosy home is perfect for a romantic getaway with your beloved. The quaint thatched cottage in the Cumbrian village of Laversdale is surrounded by colourful gardens bursting with roses and kniphofia, where you can dine out on the patio and watch the sun go down over the distant Pennines. It’s surprisingly modern inside, with a fully equipped kitchen and a stylish bathroom with a walk-in shower and illuminated mirror. Head upstairs and you’ll find a relaxing space for just the two of you, where a leather seating area (complete with flatscreen TV) leads into an intimate sleeping area with an inviting king-size bed and an ornate bureau. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
