Heart of the Lakes is a Lake District heritage brand, with a history going back to 1975 and a much-valued family-run reputation.

With its family business ethos, Heart of the Lakes offers an impressive collection of Lake District cottages, apartments and houses; some old, some modern and something for every taste, across the Lake District and therefore in the heart of one of Britain’s loveliest corners.

Thank you to Heart of the Lakes for being such superb agents for St. Giles over the last 35 years. We have been immensely reassured by the close personal interests that the company has always taken in the Cottage.
– Roger Potter

Properties for this portfolio are selected to put guests in the best locations in the popular Lake District National Park and they are also VisitEngland quality accredited.

A love of family, fun and food is at the heart of this brand, with self-catering breaks designed for families, dog-friendly cottages and walking boltholes. Heart of the Lakes guests return because of the value for money.

Heart of the Lakes manages two properties for us in Ambleside. The staff are very helpful and always accessible. They take all the hassle out of operating a holiday cottage and deal with the ‘little problems’ that arise with any property from time to time.
– Tom Brown


Heart of the Lake’s properties are often close to local amenities and top Lake District attractions; rural locations give lovers of the outdoors, walks straight from the cottage door; and leisure club access for those looking for a relaxing Lake District spa break.

The Lake District is the most popular national park holiday destination in the UK across the seasons. The LDNP forecasts potentially 22 million visitors per year coming to the Lake District by 2040. The Heart of the Lakes portfolio of 1-bed to sleeps 20 accommodation is ideally suited to meet this raising demand.
