A first-floor apartment in the thriving town of Cockermouth, with a great selection of local amenities on the doorstep.

Situated in the pretty town of Cockermouth – the birthplace of William Wordsworth – this apartment is the perfect base to explore the northern Lake District and western fells. It has the added benefit of having restaurants and bars within 1 mile, where you can enjoy a romantic meal or a few drinks out after a day of exploring. The shore path at Bassenthwaite is just 6 miles away and runs the length of the west shore. Keswick is only 14 miles away and hosts the popular Mountain Festival annually with some world-class sports, outdoor activities, talks and films, as well as live music. Whinlatter Forest is only 7 miles away – why not visit Go Ape or hire bikes and explore the forest trails? For something a little different, walk an alpaca or abseil 120ft into a disused quarry.

As you enter the property through its private entrance, you will find coat and boot storage just inside the front door. Head up the stairs to the first floor and you will find a bright and spacious lounge with views over the high street. This room has high ceilings with lovely feature beams and a Smart TV where you can catch up on your favourite series after a day out exploring. Next door, you will find the kitchen which is well-equipped with an electric hob and oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine. There is also a dining table in the kitchen where you can enjoy breakfast before heading out to explore. Head back into the hallway and up the stairs to the second floor; here, you will find a pretty double bedroom and a bathroom with a shower over the bath and WC.

There is restricted on-street parking directly outside the property for you to unload, with a car park 350 metres away or unrestricted parking in other areas of the town.

Great quality accommodation, can't fault it, location perfect, right in middle of Cockermouth. We visited over Jubilee weekend, lots of celebration and music but this apartment was lovely and quiet inside. Deceptive from outside, spacious and roomy inside. Furnished to a very high standard. Well happy here, thankyou so very much.

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.
