Good location,centre is 10 min walk and easy to do. An information pack in property would of been good idea. Places around that could visit for better scenery. Found the centre of cockermouth to be a little lacking in things to do other than Wordsworth house and garden.

Gives good access to all the amenities in the town centre (all in easy walking distance) without actually being in it. The owner has exceptionally high standards of cleanliness and care for this apartment. Highly recommended for 2 or 3 guests.

This is a fantastic apartment, spotlessly clean, comfortable, cosy and has everything you need. It's in a great location, only a short walk to the centre of Cockermouth and easy to drive to other areas. It's a bonus to have dedicated parking.

Brilliant find! Well equipped and in pristine condition. Comfortable bed and a very friendly, helpful landlord. Well situated to town centre and grocery store. Stunning river right there. Off street parking which is great as no other parking. Definitely recommend.

The cottage was lovely, very clean and well decorated. It seemed as though we were the first to ever stay in it although we were not. There was plenty of room and it was in an ideal location.

This place was amazing. Close to shops, nice walks and activities aren't far, I didn't travel over 30 minutes to go somewhere nice, mostly 15 minute travel. The owner is nice and welcoming, also really helped me when I had a car issue when he didn't have to help. Beds were really comfortable and a lot of room. A powerful shower.

Comfortable and cosy cottage. Well equipped, although needs a mirror in the bedroom. Perhaps a bit stark, so would benefit with the addition of pictures on the walls, particularly in the sitting room. Well situated with only a short riverside walk into the centre of Cockermouth with its wide variety of independent shops. Off street parking os a BIGRead more advantage. 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.
