Welcome to Wheelwrights

lake district holiday cottages

We live in the Lakes, we LOVE the Lakes and we would like to share it all with you!

For 35 years Wheelwrights has been letting some of the nicest cottages in the Lake District, and because we know the Lakes so well, we will ensure you have the benefit of our knowledge, our experience and our enthusiasm for the area. We can advise on where best to stay to suit your holiday requirements, where to go, what to do (and what not to do – such as climbing Great Gable in a snowstorm!), where to eat, how to get to places, places to avoid if you’re looking for peace and tranquility, places to go if you want more bustle and liveliness, practical advice on everything and anything ….you name it, we’ll do our very best to supply you with the information you want.

If you can’t be bothered to cook or go out after a hard day on the fells you can order delicious frozen meals made by our colleagues at Cumbrian Way Food  which we will deliver to your cottage. Pets are welcome too in many of the cottages so you need not feel bereft at leaving them in kennels back home.

All Wheelwrights cottages are centrally placed for getting to every corner of the National Park and because we are one of the smaller cottage letting companies (we have 52 cottages), we are able to give you a personal service tailored to meet your expectations of a holiday in the Lake District.
