The Lake District lies in the county of Cumbria. Granted, it takes up a large chunk of it and yes, it is exceptionally beautiful but the beauty doesn’t stop at the Lake District National Park boundary.

Look outside of the Lake District box and discover the outer areas and purely the county of Cumbria. Being one of the most sparsely populated counties in the UK, Cumbria offers unspoilt ruralness, fells, coastline and wall to wall views. Another plus point for being just outside of the Lake District National Park and that is of price both for accommodation and for eating out.

Cumbria has some stunning destinations from Ulverston in the south, Wigton to the North, St Bees in the west and the Eden Valley to the east. The Eden district is a particularly pleasing place for a self catering holiday. Just off the M6 is has ease of access yet is possibly one of the most unspoilt areas of Cumbria. The towns of Penrith, Appleby and Kirkby Stephen are surrounded by delightful villages such as Newby, Pooley Bridge and Plumpton. There are always Cumbrian cottages to be found in these villages and once more, some excellent local pubs serving local ales and food to fully complete the holiday.

As most people know, Cumbria and the Lake District is a dog friendly county. Most pubs allow dogs and it is now becoming more and more popular for Cumbrian cottages owners to allow dogs in their properties.

So next time you’re looking for a self catering cottage in the Lake District, don’t disregard the surrounding county of Cumbria where you can get more for your money without any loss of enjoyment or scenery.
