With several social spaces, this townhouse is perfect for get-togethers with family and friends. Head into the Lake District for hiking and dramatic scenery or escape from it all with a day at the coast.

This beautiful period townhouse is located a short walk from the Georgian market town of Cockermouth. Laid out over three floors, inside you'll find spacious accommodation for up to eight people. Off the hallway are the large living room and bright dining room. At the back of the house is the great kitchen which leads onto a delightful breakfast room. On the first floor you'll find the fabulous family bathroom and two of the four bedrooms, a twin and a king-size with its own en-suite shower, and up on the first floor are the remaining two bedrooms, a double and a king-size. The cottage also has an enclosed rear yard, and two dogs are welcome too.

The charming town of Cockermouth has much to offer. Poetry fans will love a visit to Wordsworth House, the childhood home of William Wordsworth. Families will love the nearby Lake District Wildlife Park, whilst adults can enjoy a tour and tasting at Jennings Brewery in the town centre. Take a scenic drive to Whinlatter Forest, where there’s a choice of nine walking trails and three mountain bike trails, or you can even walk with an alpaca for something a bit different! There is a great selection of independent shops for a spot of retail therapy and plenty of different eateries to try out during your stay too.

Popular Keswick is just a 20-minute drive away, perfect for a day out! It’s known as the adventure capital of the North Lakes, and you can sign up for an activity with one of the local adventure companies. Have a go at ghyll scrambling and canyoning or spend the afternoon raft building on Derwentwater. Head west for a peaceful walk around beautiful Loweswater or continue onwards to the coast; enjoy a seaside stroll along the pebble and sandy beach at Allonby whilst taking in the breathtaking views of the Solway Firth. Both the coast and the Lake District are within easy reach, so a stay in Cockermouth means you're perfectly placed for exploring both.

Four shallow steps lead up to the front door of this impressive home from home, which take you into the spacious hallway. At the front of the cottage is the lovely living room, with period features, an original pretty feature fireplace and a large bay window. There is stylish seating and a TV for entertainment, or why not choose the seat in the bay window and watch the world go by? The bright dining room has a large wooden farmhouse-style table, ideal for hearty homecooked meals whilst catching up on the day’s events.

At the back of the cottage is the fantastic kitchen, with beautiful slate worktops and sleek units. You’ll find an electric range-style oven with gas hobs, dishwasher, fridge-freezer, handy microwave, toaster and the all-important kettle. Beyond the kitchen, up two steps, is a delightful breakfast room, perfect for morning coffee. Two steps up from the breakfast room is a little seating area, a lovely spot for escaping with a good book.

Also on the ground floor is a modern shower room, with WC, washbasin and shower cubicle.

At the top of the stairs, on the first floor is the gorgeous family bathroom. Alongside the WC and stylish washbasin, there's a modern shower cubicle and a fabulous free-standing, clawfoot bath, perfect for enjoying a relaxing soak. The washing machine and tumble dryer are hidden away in a cupboard in the bathroom, and there's also another separate WC next door.

Also on the first floor are two beautiful bedrooms. First up is the lovely twin room, with pretty metal-framed single beds. There's also a handy wardrobe and chest of drawers for storage. At the front of the cottage is the first king-size bedroom. The large sash windows flood the room with light and give a delightful outlook over the rooftops to the countryside beyond. The vintage wardrobe and chest of drawers provide plenty of storage, and there's also an en-suite shower and washbasin tucked around the corner.

Onwards and upwards to the second floor, where you'll find the remaining two bedrooms. The charming double room has a lovely outlook over the rear of the cottage, whilst the spacious king-size room is to the front and has views of the surrounding countryside. Both these bedrooms have plenty of storage too.

Outside the cottage is a pleasant, enclosed yard. A real sun trap with an outdoor table and chairs, this is a lovely spot to relax and unwind after a day out and about. On-street parking is available, just a short walk from the cottage.

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too.
