For lovers of fells and fell walking this is the place. We walked from the cottage to the summit of Scafell Pike. The cottage is spacious, fully equipped with everything you need and lovely and clean. A lovely wood burning stove to make the cottage cosy in the evening. The owners are friendly and helpful.
There is a book written by a writer who stayed in the cottage.
Cockley Beck: A Celebration Of Lakeland In Winter by John Pepper
Cockley beck cottage is located in the duddon valley at the foot of Hardknott pass & Wrynose pass. Beautiful remote location ideal if you are a keen walker/cyclist & you want to get away from it all. The cottage is well equipped & the log burner was a greatly appreciated addition. The only downside is the shower has poor water pressure but that is hardly the end of the world. Don't use sat nav to get there as it will take it over wrynose pass which is not for the faint hearted. Approaching from the A595 after Broughton-in -Furness take a right turn at the traffic lights signposted Seathwaite & follow this mainly single track road for 11 miles to reach the cottage.
The owner lives in the farmhouse connected to the cottage & is always on hand if you have any concerns.
A beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting just perfect for walking and enjoying the peace and quiet. A lovely welcome from Sandra the owner especially after a long drive. The cottage itself had everything we could possibly need even a lovely wood burner. We would certainly recommend this cottage and will definitely be back.
