Enjoying a charming courtyard setting, Kirkgate Cottage is a wonderful retreat for up to 3 people and 1 dog. Perfect for a couple or small family, this gem of a cottage is sure to delight. The open plan living-dining room is super stylish and the separate modern kitchen will no doubt impress the chef de jour! Upstairs is the handy shower room and spacious bedroom. Full of character with its vaulted ceiling and feature beams, it's the perfect mix of modern comfort and period charm. Part of the bedroom but tucked around a corner, the snug area is a cosy little den just perfect for relaxing. The daybed in here can be used to accommodate a third person upon request.
Though tucked away, Kirkgate Cottage is just a stone's throw from the centre of Cockermouth. With a great selection of independent shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs, Cockermouth has plenty to delight and entertain. The famous Jennings Brewery, a Cockermouth institution, sits proudly by the river; offering regular tours - and tastings! - and a great shop, it's a must for any real ale fans. From quiet riverside ambles to longer walks out into the surrounding countryside, there's a great choice of walking available straight from the front door.
If you do fancy exploring slightly further afield, ever popular Keswick is an easy 15 minute drive away. Take a ride on the launch and enjoy a cruise around Derwentwater or set off on foot along the lake shore path. From Keswick avid fell walkers can tackle Latrigg, Catbells and Walla Crag to name but a few of Alfred Wainwright's favourites. Why not head west from Cockermouth to explore the picturesque Solway Coast? Stroll along the promenade at Silloth or visit Whitehaven harbour to learn about the area's maritime history.
