self catering, short break, sleeps 8.....

Am looking for a self catering house/cottage that sleeps 8 (4 bedrooms- as many double as possible) and is dog friendly (for one small dog) somewhere in the Lake District for a short break (3 nights) starting Fri 8th June 2012.

Does anyone have any suggestions for places they've stayed or websites etc that might point me in the right direction?

There are loads of web sites, just search on "Lake District Cottages".

Here are few picked at random (many will have the same cottages listed)

Cumbrian cottages (the Lake District is in the country of Cumbria)

I second the recommendation for Cumbrian Cottages. They have a great range and I've always found them very helpful. Just give them a ring, tell them what you're looking for, and see what they suggestion

A couple of other cottage rental companies worth checking out are Wheelwrights, Coppermines, and Heart of the Lakes.

The only problem you might have is finding somewhere for a short break. That's usually a lot easier out of season than in the summer months, but I dare say there'll be something out there if you phone around.

Try www.farmstay.co.uk

and www.ullswater.com - good access from Penrith Rail Station www.thetrainline.com

A good app is www.digi-lakedistrict.com showing places to visit
