Lake District Cottages | The Coppermines Lakes Cottages

Looking for your perfect Lake District holiday cottage, from a team small enough to really know each cottage inside and out? Then you’ve found the right company.

The Coppermines Lakes Cottages began its journey almost 30 years ago. A business originally developed from the humble restorations of the historic Coppermines buildings, situated in the Coniston Coppermines Valley by Philip Johnston and his family who still own our business today, making us one of the last independent agencies here in the Lake District. Over the years we have significantly grown to now offer over 80 hand-picked, unique self-catering Lake District cottages (many pet friendly), all of which are situated within the UNESCO World Heritage boundary.

Whilst we have added to our collection of cottages over time, our ethos remains the same: ‘‘providing self-catering cottages of quality & character combined with exceptional personal service’’.

The Lake District is constantly voted the UK’s number one holiday destination and was in 2017 awarded UNESCO World Heritage Status. With its endless views, vibrant villages and abundance of activities on offer, it’s not hard to see why. So please browse through our site and let us inspire you in planning your next visit to this beautiful corner of the UK. Should you need any help or advice then please do not hesitate to contact a member of our friendly office team.

The Lake District. It says in the name – Lake. Ironically there is only one ‘Lake’ - Bassenthwaite Lake. Most of the rest are actually Waters. When I decided on a whim to move to the Lakes as I mentioned in July’s blog there were two reasons, mountains and Lakes. I need both in my life to feel alive. It’s hard to explain but Mum did always tell me I was a water baby and would constantly be found lying belly down in any puddle I could find, literally any, even manure puddles weren’t off limits for me apparently.
