A well-presented and homely property set in the centre of Cockermouth, with local amenities on your doorstep. A great retreat for a couple or family looking to explore the Lakes.

Enjoy a break in the heart of the lively Cumbrian town of Cockermouth when you stay at this delightful, two-bedroom cottage. Sleeping four guests, and also welcoming one dog, the Lakeland bolthole is ideal for a small family or two couples seeking the convenience of being close to shops and restaurants, as well as access to the picturesque, western swathe of the national park. From here, enjoy excursions to Bassenthwaite Lake, 7 miles away, renowned for its wildlife, and Derwentwater, 14 miles away, where you can board a launch from Keswick to absorb the scenery from the lake itself.

Let yourselves into the charming holiday home and from the hall stroll through into the lounge. Spend your evenings in here, watching TV perhaps or a film on the Blu-ray DVD. Read your holiday novels or play a game together. Take turns at preparing delicious meals in the kitchen/diner with the fresh, Cumbrian ingredients you have sourced in Cockermouth. Then sit down to lively holiday dinners. Find your family bathroom is also at ground-floor level, while your bedrooms, a double and a king-size, are both upstairs. Step out into the courtyard garden on warm days to bask in the sunshine over a cup of tea. Parking is on the street on a first-come, first-served basis for one hour only or in a nearby car park, where charges apply.

Visit the National Trust’s Wordsworth House, where the poet lived, and see the castle in Cockermouth. You could also take a brewery tour. Drive about 8 miles to Loweswater or Crummock Water, to enjoy long walks around the lakes, taking in their magnificent scenery. Take the children for a day out to Whinlatter Forest Park, 7.5 miles away, with its leafy trails and children’s play areas, plus a high ropes course.

The cottage is well equipped and in a great location, but unfortunately is suffering from a damp issue with wet patches in most rooms and bedding getting wet due to this in one room. I cannot recommend the property in its current state as the damp really needs sorting

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.
