Cockermouth, Lake District, Cumbria, England
A romantic cottage for 2 people, in beautiful countryside with lovely views across the Solway Firth to Scotland. Great walking and cycling country and close to stunning beaches. Character cottage newly renovated in 2016 with private garden. A welcome pack of home made and local produce is included. Well behaved dogs welcome! Close to village pubs (approx 1 mile away) . Fishing nearby and Arkleby leisure pool with sauna and hot tub 1 minute away. Approx 6 miles from Cockermouth. Home deliveries are possible from the Sainsburys in Cockermouth or Iceland, Asda or Tesco branches in Workington. This cottage will appeal to those wanting a peaceful holiday in the country. This is an area which is relatively undiscovered so you will not encounter the high numbers of tourists found in some of the Lake District hotspots. A car is essential, but... Read more

The place smelt of dogs when we arrived. We know it's advertised as pet friendly but have several dogs and our own home never smells. They have a very noisy spaniel that never shuts up barking, due to the cottage being connected by a cupboard...More

We could fill the page with all the details of our stay and you probably still wouldn't believe how amazing this was for us. The cottage is idyllic, tastefully decorated & sympathetically furnished. Both front & rear gardens are a joy. A treasure of goodies...More

About the neighbourhood
Our nearest main town is Cockermouth about six miles away. Here in this very attractive town (the birthplace of William Wordsworth) you will find a wide variety of independent shops,pubs and restaurants together with three supermarkets. Jennings Brewery is in Cockermouth and a trip around the brewery is a must as is a visit to the Wordsworth Museum. Our nearest villages are Gilcrux (where there is a pub(serving food),bistro,church, post office and village hall) and Parsonby (where there is a church.) Both villages are within easy walking distance. Trout fishing is available at Gilcrux Trout Fisheries. At the bottom of our lane (about 1 min in the car) is Arkleby Leisure Pool - a fantastic heated large indoor pool and also a sauna and hot tub. This facility can be booked in advance by... more
