Holiday Cottages In The North West To Rent

Craving a hearty slice of English charm? You’ll get that, plus a good cup of tea, and a delicious dollop of hot pot, over in the dreamy landscapes of England’s North West. A place where up-and-coming cities (Manchester, we’re looking at you) and spellbinding National Parks sit side by side with effortless ease, the North West is the has-it-all destination for your next short break.

The jewel in the North West crown, the Lake District has visitors flocking every year to soak up some of that northern goodness, be it lounging lakeside with a melting honeycomb ice cream or stood proudly at the top of Scafell Pike. The region also boasts lovely Lancashire, home to the rural city of Lancaster, the imposingly beautiful Ashton Memorial and gorgeous canal-side scenes. Fancy something a little less country? There’s the bright delights of Manchester and Liverpool, where a superb cocktail and splash of urban excitement is never hard to find.
