- A perfect cosy cottage very close to Cockermouth. The cottage was well stocked with utensils, crockery, cleaning supplies...also essentials like toilet paper and shower gel. A nice touch. Towels and bedding were provided. These were both clean and fresh.
You can easily walk into Cockermouth from this cottage to restaurants and bars. It also serves as an easy driving base to the lakes, all directions. Buttermere is highly recommended with less tourists.
For self catering, there is a Sainsbury’s within a few minutes walk. The cottage doesn’t have a traditional oven, but instead a convention microwave for use. We were still able to cook using the hob easily.
The cottage sits on the grounds of the main house, where the owners reside. Both Tony and Gloria are excellent hosts and could not have made us feel more welcome! Their beautiful garden was always open to us and had an amazing variety of flowers to view. Tony also kept bees and was very kind showing our boys the hive and telling them all about the bees daily lives...they found this very interesting. There is a fabulous flat section of grass at the front of he house where the boys could also throw a frisbee and kick a football....the garden is rather large.
In all we left relaxed, happy and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. Thank you for an excellent stay.
