There is a brewery just a few minutes’ walk away which offers tours where you can sample traditional ales. Close by you will find Bassenthwaite Lake and Derwentwater where you can sail and kayak. For bike enthusiasts, Whinlatter has some great bike tracks. The Roman fort of Deventio can be found just a mile away at Papcastle - you can walk here from the town. Accessed from an external or internal staircase, this fully refurbished second-floor apartment has been thoughtfully finished throughout.

As you enter the apartment into the hallway, you will find a bright spacious lounge with a Smart TV and comfy seating. If you fancy reading a good book, head to the snug - it offers a great space to escape, relax and curl up on the armchair also with a Smart TV. There is a spacious and bright double bedroom which is en-suite with a shower and WC; there is also a family bathroom next door between the bedrooms which has a separate bath, shower and WC. The twin bedroom has two zip-and-link beds and can be made up as a super-king-size on request. At the end of the hallway, you will find the stylish and modern kitchen which is equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. The dining room wraps around from the kitchen and is open plan; there is a dining table where you can catch up over coffee and breakfast and the snug is situated at the bottom of this room.

Although there is no private garden, there is a small south-facing outdoor terrace with seating which is shared with one other apartment. You are just a short walk from the river and park which is a lovely place to go on a sunny day. There is private parking for two cars to the rear of the property and ample, secure storage for bikes.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The apartment is fantastic. Both walk-in showers are very good, with lots of room. The bus service in Cockermouth is excellent, if you prefer to leave the car.

Map
Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

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.
