Upon the Fells

Upon the Fells, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Upon the Fells, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Click to book Upon the Fells now: from £119 per night The Lake District has long inspired poets and artists, the clear waters and green mountains drawing in creative souls of all kinds – and now that includes you. This chic, contemporary home is perfectly placed for exploring the lush landscapes that Wordsworth wrote about, without cutting you off entirely from the modern world. Right in the heart of Ambleside, a charming English market town, this home is decked out with all the mod cons like Sky TV, a state-of-the-art coffee machine, and a gorgeous bathtub that's ideal for a long soak after a day of exploration. And of course there's also the attractions – there's a wealth of pubs and restaurants within walking distance and a cosy fireplace to return to and curl up in front of in the evening. Sleeps up to 5 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms

Stanley Ghyll Cottage

Stanley Ghyll Cottage, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Stanley Ghyll Cottage, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Click to book Stanley Ghyll Cottage now: from £500 per night Seek out this traditional stone cottage in the heart of the Lake District National Park. Even though the home itself is 500 years old, it’s full of modern luxuries such as a brand-new country style kitchen and beautiful marble bathroom. These are offset nicely against the traditional features of exposed brick walls and original wooden beams. Located in a place of superlatives, not only is it within walking distance to England’s highest mountain, but also its deepest lake, steepest road, and oldest working water mill. Before setting out to discover all of these delights, why not start the day with an invigorating dip in Stanley Ghyll waterfall nearby. After a day of exploring, get cosy in the snug as you make the most of the full Sky television package. You can even stream your favourite shows seamlessly through the fibreoptic broadband. Personally, we prefer to just switch off from it all in the secret walled garden with sublime views over the fells. When night falls, cosy up in the warmth of the cottage and watch the stars come alive through the skylight windows. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

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

Above the Chocolate Shop

Above the Chocolate Shop, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Above the Chocolate Shop, Plum Guide home in Cumbria, UK

Click to book Above the Chocolate Shop now: from £119 per night Ambleside is a picturesque village that marks the head of Windermere – England’s largest natural lake – but you could be forgiven for thinking that this modern pad was located in a cosmopolitan city. The interior is luxurious yet simple, following the motto “less is best”. Each piece of furniture has been carefully selected, from the floating bar stools to the curved standing tub. We love the colour palette, which blends soft blues with sunshine yellow. The kitchen tiles light up the open plan living space and create the perfect cooking space. You can make the most of the Neff appliances by whipping up an evening feast. This home is located above a chocolate shop so expect to get the occasional whiff of sweetness (and constant cravings!). Luckily the host provides complimentary chocolates for you to pocket as you head into the Lake District for a day of hiking. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Brontë Schoolhouse

Brontë Schoolhouse, Plum Guide home in Lancashire

Brontë Schoolhouse, Plum Guide home in Lancashire

Click to book Brontë Schoolhouse now: from £119 per night This Casterton cottage has lived many lives in its rich history, most notably as the school Charlotte Brontë and her sisters attended in the 1800s. To stay here is to stay in literary history. Recently renovated, the cottage has a new life as a home where high ceilings meets joyous splashes of colour and comfortable furnishings. All the home comforts are here, and the cottage is hugged by a charming little village. A five-minute drive away lies the historic market town of Kirkby Lonsdale, where you're sure to pick up charming souvenirs and fresh local produce. Further afield, take to the water at Lake Windermere, a half-hour drive from your front door. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
