Short Breaks Cumbria

Cumbria and the Lake District is a perfect place to enjoy a weekend away or a short break. With fantastic scenery everywhere you go, staying in a Farm Stay holiday cottage or B&B is ideally suited to a county such as Cumbria. Our properties are located in the countryside, often on real working farms, and always have the highest standards of comfort and quality, staying in a county like Cumbria you’ll be sure to be located among some idyllic scenery.
Cumbria is quite possibly the most beautiful county in the whole of England, with the Lake District boasting absolutely magnificent scenery. Lakes such as Windermere, Derwentwater, Ullswater and Catbells are famous throughout the country and for good reason, all manner of water sports and outdoor activities can be enjoyed on lakes such as Windermere, while each lake has its own unique charm and stunning surroundings.
Away from the water Hadrian’s Wall is another attraction in Cumbria which is famous throughout the UK. Stretching 73 miles from sea to sea, Hadrian’s Wall is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which has numerous trails, frontier history and re-enactments to enhance the experience. Carlisle Castle is another site in Cumbria with a rich history, the Castle is over 900 years old and has been besieged 10 times, more than any other Castle in the UK.
If the weather is being uncooperative there is still much to do in Cumbria. The Abbot Hall Art Gallery is an art gallery in a grade II listed villa, boasting a fine collection of 16th, 17th and 18th Century art work. Alternatively the Lakeland Motor Museum is another place to visit in inclement weather. The museum contains approximately 30,000 exhibits, including a variety of motorbikes, scooters and motorcars and traces the history of the car throughout the ages.

Cumbria is perfect for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and wants to see one of the natural treasures of the UK, Farm Stay provides the ideal place to stay  for a weekend or mid week short break. When you are done exploring for the day you are able to relax in comfortable and cosy surroundings of your Farm Stay property. For those looking to travel to Cumbria without children in-toe, booking outside of the holidays gives you access to lower rates, meaning you can enjoy the same great Farm Stay Cumbrian experience for less.
