Walk into the property, down the hall and find a lovely lounge. In the winter months, use the coal-effect gas fire to make everything cosy, and in the summer stretch out on the window seat and admire the view, enjoy a drink or read your book. Continue through to a spacious kitchen/diner which overlooks the garden and can easily accommodate everyone for a group meal. The last place on the ground floor is the utility room. Head upstairs, where you’ll see two double bedrooms, bothsimply decorated and comfortable. There’s also a family bathroom with a shower over the bath. This cottage has an enclosed garden with a high fence, so your children can roam around. There’s a lawn for games, shrubs, seating and dining spots.

You’ll be in Cockermouth, a bustling market town with lots of  pubs where you can get a hearty meal if you don’t fancy cooking. If you’d like a day at the beach, try Harrington Beach, 11.5 miles away, or Allonby Beach, 10.5 miles away, both of which welcome canines.

A really homely place - spacious, well equipped but still plenty of space to store your own supplies etc. Two fridges and a freezer. We've stayed there before and were very happy to return. Easy walk into Cockermouth, nice garden and easy parking. Quiet area and dog friendly which is a real plus.

The house was perfect. It was lovely and clean, spacious and comfortable. We loved the sunny garden. We appreciated the goodies left for us on arrival and nice that the host checked in with us by texting to make sure we were happy. Perfect location to explore the north lakes.

Loved the cottage, very well equipped and clean, nice location for walking only 15 mins into the town centre. Nice garden to the rear of the property, great for dogs, and lovely seating areas to enjoy a wine or two.

Really lovely place. Initially reserved on account of the enclosed garden for the dogs and the close proximity to the town, however the house was far nicer than I had expected, the photos do not do it justice! They let us have an early check in too which was really appreciated!

Jenny was very helpful and easy to contact. We had a welcome pack, including treats for the dog when we arrived. The location is very good for walks into town, or around the area and lovely parks. The enclosed garden for the dog was great, with nice seating areas, though too cool / wet whilst we were there.
