Riverside Self Catering Holidays in The Lake District.
Cocks Close is closed and unable to accept bookings whilst the whole site and accommodations are fully renovated. We anticipate reopening in Summer 2019.
Set in 23 acres of woodland and pasture land in Longsleddale within the Lake District National Park, Cumbrian Riverside is the ideal rural retreat located right on the banks of the River Sprint. With woods, walks, a fishing lake and 1/2 mile of the River Sprint running through the property, it’s the perfect place for a holiday. If you are looking for a Riverside Self Catering Holiday in The Lake District or Yorkshire Dales in a stunning location, we can provide the perfect location for you to get away from it all and yet be within a few minutes of the hustle and bustle of Windermere, Bowness and Ambleside. On 1st August 2016 the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks merged into one making Cumbrian Riverside the perfect central location to enjoy both The Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.
The River Sprint
Half a mile of the River Sprint runs right through the estate and all our self catering properties lay right beside this beautiful river. For most of the time the River Sprint is gentle, trickling down to the River Kent and eventually out into Morecambe Bay. There are pools with fish to be caught even when the River Sprint is in this mood. In some places you’d barely get your ankles wet crossing from one side to the other and it’s the perfect place to while away a few hours in tranquillity. At other times particularly after a deluge, the River Sprint is in a far more vigorous mood and can roar along at speed and nearly 6 feet deep. We’re lucky to have a large white water waterfall on the river – “The Double S Bends” -which stretches for about 250 meters. Canoeist love it.
