Cockermouth, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Southwaite Green is in an area of peace and tranquility in the Lorton Vale, almost mid-way between Cockermouth and Lorton both 2 miles away, Keswick is 9 miles to the east. Within a short drive are the quieter western lakes Crummock, Loweswater, Buttermere and Ennerdale, winner of Britain's Best View. There are ample walking and cycling opportunities from the door and a wealth of shops and restaurants can be found in both Cockermouth and Keswick.

The properties sit on Paddle Beck giving a peaceful ambience together with 10 acres of grounds including newly planted woodland, wildlife meadow, pond and arboretum.

Had a great stay at these cottages. Helpful host and it was clear that she had worked very hard to ensure everything was thought of. Well stocked kitchen, really comfy beds, clean and abundant bathrooms . All cottages were warm and cosy at all time. The place itself is very well appointed and the children really enjoyed all the outside space. Thanks Marna for a lovely break.

We had a great time as a party of 20 people in the 4 cottages. They were very comfortable and warm. The cottages were in a great location.

About the neighbourhood
The lakes Buttermere, Crummock and Loweswater are very close, Loweswater a nice walk, with Keswick and Borrowdale a short drive away over the Whinlatter pass. Hiking, climbing and other outdoor pursuits are very popular, with many walks made famous by the Wainwright series of guidebooks. The C2C bike route passes close to the cottage, so bring your bikes or hire them in Cockermouth, but be prepared for hills.

Cockermouth is one of the few towns in the Lakes that retain its traditional look and feel, with individual independent shops on the tree-lined main street giving the town great character. There is also a farmers' market in the market square the first Saturday of each month.

Wordsworth was born here and his house is a National Trust property, with staff dressed for the 18th...
