Lake District Pastoral. Photo © Home At First.

Welcome to England's Lake District!
          The poets Wordsworth and Coleridge first brought this sparsely populated, remote part of northwest England into the public imagination. Almost two centuries on, their songs of praise of the Lake District's lovely landscape of lakes, hills and quaint villages still apply. It is this setting where
HOME AT FIRST's apartment accommodations and cottages are found.


A sublime landscape —

Quality Lodgings

Near the Lakes

          HOME AT FIRST’s Lake District lodgings are well equipped with all the comforts of home. They may be cottages in the quiet countryside or in small villages. Others are spacious apartments in a beautiful converted country estate house overlooking Esthwaite Water, a small lake just west of famed Lake Windermere. All lodgings are perfectly located as bases for day trips throughout the Lake District.

Peace and Beauty in a Gentle Wilderness


The romantic Lake District landscape
includes hidden lakes, easy walking
hills, and England's highest
mountain peaks.

          While romantic poets like Wordsworth may have fallen into disfavor, the stature of the Lake District has only increased. Here the civilized ways of the English squirearchy meets a gentle wilderness, and the resulting touring pace is measured and graceful, never manic or boring. The many walking paths always offer tranquility, and sometimes exciting challenge, but never dull repetition. And the lakes are hidden like so many diamonds scattered among the folds of a counterpane of hills.

Family-friendly England
          Should we bring the kids along? Are you kidding?! There are great parks, steam train rides and boat rides better than in any amusement park, and, oh yes, amusement parks, too. Want
history to come alive for your kids? Why not take them where so much history has been made? Worried about being away from McDonald's and TV? Don't be. Kids of all ages can get their burgers, fries and CNN all over Britain. And, who knows, maybe the kids will discover new tastes: fish 'n chips, ice lollies, and the fun of exploring thousands of years of English history from Roman Emperor Hadrian's Wall (A WORLD HERITAGE SITE) to medieval Sizergh Castle to Blackpool's Pleasure Beach.

                   KIDS STAY FREE WITH HOME AT FIRST!

The Lake District is Beatrix Potter Country.
The creator of the
Tales of Peter Rabbit
spent her childhood summers in the Lake
District and later owned two cottages in
Sawrey on Lake  Windermere not far from
Hawkshead. Her cottages may be visited
today, as can
The World of Beatrix Potter
across Windermere from Sawrey at
Bowness. Take the kids!
