Clappersgate Cottages

The quiet village of Clappersgate is well-situated in the Lake District National Park, just northwest of the massive Lake Windermere. With the river Brathay running alongside the roadway Clappersgate is a picturesque location. Book a self-catering cottage today and have the freedom to explore one of the UK’s oldest national parks.

Only roughly a thirty minute walk from the northernmost shores of Lake Windermere, you don’t have far to go to see the stunning scenery just on your doorstep. Walk a few minutes more round the lake to Waterhead, where you can look down the lake from Waterhead Pier at the calm waters and rising mountainsides. From the pier you can catch a lake cruise that can take you across the entire length of Windermere, down to Lakeside, don’t let the sheer expanse of the lake distract you from the surrounding beauty of the hills and mountains. Alternatively you might want to stop off at one of the numerous piers along the way, such as Bowness-On-Windermere where you can learn of the Lake District’s rich heritage and find the odd-souvenir for loved ones back home.

For those who prefer to stay on firm ground, follow the A593 east out of Clappersgate and visit the popular town of Ambleside. Here you’ll find popular pubs serving fantastic food and interesting museums that tell stories of the town’s cultural past. Be sure to check out the peculiar Bridge House before moving on, it’s not far from Ambleside’s tourist information centre, where you’ll be able to find information about numerous hiking routes and attractions.

West of Clappersgate, following the river upstream, you’ll find Skelwith Bridge, a beautiful village with a plethora of opportunities for the painter or photographer in you. From here you can head north to the Elterwater, or carry on west to climb the summits of the Lake District.

So with so much to plan and see, why not consider our cottages below, and make Clappersgate your holiday destination in the Lake District?
