Autumn in the Lake District

Autumn marks the transition of Summer to Winter, and the fells turn from green to gold.

Here in the Lake District it’s a time for wrapping up well and enjoying the crisp morning air whilst surrounded by all the colourful splendour Autumn has to offer, kicking your boots off after a frosty day on the fells and warming up with a real log fire enjoying fine food with friends and family.

We have a range of self-catering holiday cottages for you to enjoy this Autumn. Whether it’s a romantic break for two or a family getaway we have a holiday cottage that’s just right for you. Make your Good Life Cottage a home from home or use it as a base for exploring the Lake District at this magical time of year. We also have many pet friendly cottages so you and your faithful companion can explore the great outdoors together.

It’s a little quieter in our towns and villages during Autumn and there is still plenty of things to see and do. Many village craft fairs and local seasonal events take place for Halloween, Bonfire night and leading up to Christmas.

If you fancy escaping to the Lake District this Autumn have a look at our cottages below. Choose a Good Life Lake District Cottage, we know what makes a good holiday!
