A traditional, two-storey cottage, with a bright, inviting interior, set in the market town of Cockermouth, yet also perfect for days out and long walks in the Lakes.
Plan a trip to historic Cockermouth and consider this welcoming cottage, where up to three guests and one canine companion can stay. The appealing, one-bedroom property, which opens on to a courtyard, is a great base from which to enjoy everything Cockermouth has to offer, as well as to immerse yourselves in the beauty of the Lake District. Visit Wordsworth House and Garden, where the poet was born, follow the town trail and shop and dine out to your heart’s content. Drive 13 miles to Keswick to browse in more shops, visit its museums and take a launch out on scenic Derwentwater. Go walking at Bassenthwaite Lake, 4 miles from the cottage, or at Whinlatter Forest Park, 7 miles away.
Cross the pretty courtyard to enter the property and find a useful porch, where you can towel down your four-legged friend and leave all your outdoor gear. Find the airy lounge/diner, with its contemporary styling and stone feature wall is the perfect place to unwind after a busy day. Watch TV in here, read your book and dine together after whipping up something tasty in the kitchen. The kitchen includes a gas oven and hob, microwave, integrated fridge, dishwasher, kettle and toaster, and there is a washing machine in the utility area beyond. Put dinner in the oven then pause at the breakfast bar with an aperitif while it roasts. The bedroom and shower room are up on the first floor of the cottage, together with a snug, which has a second TV and a sofa. The main bedroom has a king-size bed and beamed and vaulted ceiling. Discover the shower room has a WC and handbasin.
Spend warm days out in the courtyard or relaxing on the patio at the back, which is part of the owner’s garden. Parking is shared with other properties and is first come, first served. There is on-street parking close by, plus a managed car park.
