Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this historic former pub that was built in 1741 and provides the perfect access to this wonderful, picturesque, popular Lake District town and beyond.

Located in the bustling, historic town of Cockermouth in Cumbria, this spacious property is perfect for families who want to explore the nearby coastline as well as the Lake District National Park. A great base from which to explore the northern Lake District and western fells, Cockermouth has a range of independent shops, eateries and amenities, all within a few hundred metres of the property. The area is popular with outdoor enthusiasts; whether you’re into walking, cycling, canoeing or climbing, there will be an activity nearby to suit your interests and ability.

This former pub, dating back to 1741, has been lovingly restored to create a light and airy home where original features sit effortlessly alongside contemporary fixtures and fittings. After discarding your outdoor gear in the hallway, head into the spacious lounge/diner where there is plenty of seating for everyone to sit back and relax. Completing the ground floor is a double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Upstairs, there’s a bright and modern kitchen with extra dining space, two further well-presented bedrooms (a king-size master and a cosy twin) and a stylish shower room. There is no outdoor space, but there is allocated parking for one car.

The birthplace of William Wordsworth, Cockermouth is bursting with history and charm. As well as its shops and eateries, it also offers picturesque walks along the banks of the River Derwent. The lakes of Loweswater, Crummock Water and Bassenthwaite are all within 10 miles, and have walking routes to suit all ages/abilities. Bassenthwaite is perhaps the most popular and well-known, with its nesting ospreys and suitability for water sports, but the others are equally as breathtaking.

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. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
