English Countryside Hotels & Cottages

English Country-Hotels

After reading a feature by Tablet on English country-style hotels, I reminisced about our family holiday in England. I am partial to the Cumbria area as that is where my husband is from and where some of his family still resides. It was on the Lindeth Bray estate, of Auntie Enid and Uncle Arthur, where Beatrix Potter lived while writing “The Tails of Peter Rabbit”. The countryside, especially the Lake District, is resplendent and arguably the most picturesque landscape in the world. To attract more visitors, many historic buildings, (pictured above) have preserved the original architecture but have embraced a few modern updates, such as indoor pools and spas, without spoiling the land.

During one summer, we rented a lovely home in Hawkshead named Rose How, in the Lake District, Cumbria. The cottage has an expansive backyard (pictured above), perfect for kid-friendly exploration and where four little rabbits appeared every morning for a grass-filled breakfast. A hanging feeder, near the kitchen window, was a bird-watcher’s paradise with so many species greeting us throughout the day. Two bottles of farm-fresh milk was left at the door every morning. It’s straight out of a storybook. From local sheep dog trials to farmers markets, you won’t run out of things to do. And, there are lots of grassy fields for kids to run around. Whether you stay in a hotel or home, this part of the world is worth seeing over and over again.
