How about a cottage in the grounds of a castle? Dower House Cottage shares grounds with Wray Castle and has access to the lake via woodland paths. Daytime mooring is also available on the National Trust jetty.
Copper Beech Lodge was once the gatehouse to an Edwardian country estate and is nowadays, a relaxing place for a group stay.

There are even two Canadian canoes available to use!
The views at The Place, a characterful 17th century farmhouse, are simply breathtaking, and you can wander right into them with a stroll down to Loweswater lake from your front door!
Just a short 10-minute walk from the water’s edge, 2 Low Glenridding is an ideal self-catering cottage if you want to explore Ullswater, widely considered the most beautiful lake in the national park!

Formerly the stables of an Edwardian country estate, Blea Brows is a comfortable conversion nestled in the woodland around Coniston Water. A 5-minute walk down a private woodland lane takes you to the shores of the lake, where you will find a sweet, semi-private beach.
This perfect cottage sits on a working farm on the edge of pretty Buttermere. Though you can enjoy the views from the comfort of Yew Tree itself, you can also be right by the water in the space of 10 minutes!
