“Lovely little cottage in a great location”
Reviewed 25 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We spent a long time searching for a property that felt like a nice cosy, country cottage, but still modern and fresh looking - I definitely found that with Challoner Cottage. The property was nice and warm, and whilst it was only a gas fire rather than a log burner, it still looked and felt like a real burner. Perfect for relaxing in after a day out on the lakes.

The property is situated in the centre of Cockermouth, and whilst the town is not the most picturesque of towns I have been, it is a very short drive into the lakes and of course the town has far more amenities than if you were based in the lakes - a large Sainsbury's is a two minute walk from the property. There are lots of pubs in Cockermouth - some very 'local', but some really nice ones too. There's a really nice bar/restaurant called The Castle Bar, which we went to a few times - this is only a few minutes walk from the property.

If I were going back to the Lake District (and I plan to), I would not hesitate to stay at Challoner Cottage again.

“Delightful cottage situated in quiet street 2 minutes walk from bars and restaurants”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in June 2014
person found this review helpful

Cottage decorated to high standard with lots of home comforts, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Well equipped dining area and comfortable lounge with TV. We loved the cottage and the locality to the town centre yet so near many beautiful areas of the Lake District.
Parking was not a problem as there is a car park a couple of minutes walk away.
I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to explore the area, be located in a quiet street but so close to all amenities.
