This spacious light and airy cottage offers fantastic views over the River Cocker a perfect setting to soak up the evening air after a day exploring the Lakes.
Offering superb views over the River Cocker, this charming two-bedroom cottage would perfectly suit a couple or small family looking to explore the lakes. Located less than a mile from the bustling market town of Cockermouth, and with easy access to the coast as well, it really does give you the best of both worlds. Shops and local pubs are within walking distance and two four-legged family members are also welcome, meaning nobody needs to be left at home.
This delightful property is both spacious and comfortable with all the modern conveniences you’ll need. The lounge/kitchen is a welcoming space, with comfortable sofas which invite you to stretch out and unwind after a busy day of exploring. Rustle up a delicious meal in the kitchen and then take a seat at the dining table in the conservatory, which enjoys open views to the river. When it’s time to rest, retreat to the cosy bedrooms, which are designed to be both calming and relaxing. Step outside and enjoy an al fresco drink on the large decked area and patio, which again makes the most of those super views. If the weather is fine, why not fire up the BBQ as you watch the sun go down.
Meander around the many shops, restaurants and galleries in Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth. Whether you’re in the mood for a short stroll or wild hike, the National Trust’s Crummock Water (8 miles), makes for a super day out. Bassenthwaite Lake (11 miles) the most northerly of the lakes and one of the largest, is also worth a visit. For a taste of the coast, head to the harbour town of Maryport (8 miles) and explore its aquarium and many museums.
