Lakes and lochs (969)

Stay near a loch or lake on your next holiday and discover the true meaning of getting away from it all. Whatever the weather, staying in one of these cottages, farmhouses or other rural retreats will lift your spirits and help you completely unwind and relax.


Visit Scotland for breathtaking panoramic views of the Scottish Highlands and Lowlands – you could stay near Loch Lomond, Loch Ness or one of the 600+ other lochs. Or wake up to the tranquillity of Windermere in the Lake District, the valleys and llyns,of Wales or the many lakes dotted around France, Italy and Spain.


Lakes and lochs make great bases for activity holidays. You could have a go at fishing or get out onto the water by going kayaking or windsurfing. Mostly nestled inside pretty valleys, the surrounding area is almost always ideal for hiking and mountain biking too.
