Planning a stay in Cumbria?

Here are the top things to consider when booking your trip…

Your Budget and Preferences

When choosing a self-catering holiday location, it’s important to ensure you consider your budget and preferences. From rural settings with stunning views, to traditional cottages in quaint villages, the diversity of the accommodation in The Lake District means there’s something for everyone.

Take time to consider factors like whether you require amenities on site or if you’re happy to take your own camping supplies. Additionally, check what extra costs may be added to the rental cost such as electricity or other services once booking is complete.

For a booking experience that’s as relaxed as your stay, Lakeland Retreats make everything honest and transparent. No hidden costs. No extras at checkout. The total you’ll pay for the property, for the days your staying, displays as you’re selecting your days in the calendar. And, if your shopping on a budget, there’s always our last minute availability offers.

Find the Right Property

Before booking a self-catering holiday in The Lake District, take time to read reviews and find the right property for your needs. Watching online video tours can give you a better overview of what’s available, as will checking out websites of local attractions and activities.

Consider whether you would like a secluded location or if you prefer to be close to amenities such as shops, restaurants and other attractions. Finding the right balance is key to getting the most out of your vacation!

Check Availability and Book in Advance

Booking ahead is the best way to get your preferred accommodation in the Cumbria. Keep an eye out for special offers and discounts. Search multiple websites and ring your chosen self-catering accommodation direct to see if they have any last minute deals or special offers, before paying a deposit and committing to the room of your choice!

We know the feeling of finally making a booking then finding a cheaper option somewhere else. It can flip what feels like an exciting moment to a disappointment in an instant. When booking through Lakeland Retreats, there’s no dynamic pricing or hidden costs, the price you see on our website is always the best you’ll find, anywhere, guaranteed.

Stock Up on Supplies and Local Amenities

Before your arrival, it’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with local amenities and supplies. Research ahead of time to make sure you have access to the items you need, such as shops, doctors, banks and petrol stations. You can find out what’s available in each village when booking online or by contacting the tourist information centre.

Remember, stock up on basics before arrival so that you always have them handy while exploring the Cumbria!

Find Suitable Directions and Transport

Whether you decide to travel by car or public transport, it’s always important to find and book the right direction and route. Find out more about stop locations, times of operation and fares ahead of time so that your journey runs as smoothly as possible.
