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.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A beautiful cottage , which is spotlessly clean with everything inside you could think off, It is fully wheelchair adapted with one bed being a craftmatic that can be adjusted.

This cottage was superbly clean - I have been in 5 star hotels not as clean. The cottage was ideal for wheelchairs as well, with a huge wet room and a further wet room off the double bedroom. The lane down to the cottage is a bit bumpy but nothing to worry about it you drive slower. The cottage owner was always about incase you needed him. This cotRead moretage is a credit to him. Hide

This cottage is in a fabulous location with a helpful host. It has everything needed to make the holiday relaxing, and suited the 3 of us (& dog) better than expected. The surroundings are peaceful with the ponies, sheep & chickens in the adjacent field providing amusement when just gazing around. The river at the end of the field has very clear waRead moreter even after the storms we witnessed. I saw a kingfisher dart passed (but my hubby & his dad missed it!) and the local heron regularly flew by. Hide

The Lake District National Park is a superb choice for a holiday. If you love nature and the great outdoors, the Lake District is one of the UK’s most beautiful holiday destinations. Taking up the lion’s share of the north-western county of Cumbria, the region has been popular with visitors since Victorian times, and it’s the only place to find mountains in England. Peace and tranquillity characterise the wonderful Lake District, with 16 lakes, including England’s longest and deepest, there is much to see and do. Visit Coniston Water, Ullswater, Wast Water and Windermere for just a taste of what you can see in the Lake District National Park.

Small towns like Ambleside, Windermere, Hawkshead, Bowness-on-Windermere and Glenridding all make for great bases from which to relax and unwind between sojourns into the fantastic natural landscapes of the Lake District National Park. Wildlife and bird lovers can spot all kinds of lesser spotted species in situ, and walking trails reveal some of the very best vistas within English borders. To embellish the experience, you can enjoy some of the country’s cosiest pubs and restaurants, many found in picture-perfect locations.
