Overview
Cottage -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Cockermouth, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Southwaite Green is in an area of peace and tranquillity 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 less frequented 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. Consequently there is an abundance of wildlife including deer, foxes, red squirrels, badgers and the occasional kingfisher that visits the beck.

Southwaite Green is a development of four properties that were converted...

Perfect location for great walks around lakes and up the hills. Excellent restaurants nearby plus anything else you might need. The accommodation was perfect for our family of six adults and two dogs, very well equipped, comfortable, environmentally friendly in beautiful grounds with lots of wildlife. We had a wonderful time thankyou Marna.

Absolutely beautiful location, alongside a beck, with a view of surrounding fields. We've stayed at Southwaite Green previously in other cottages, but this was our first time staying in Beckside. It's my new favourite of the cottages. Spotlessly clean, luxurious, comfortable beds, log burner in the lounge, open plan landing to bedrooms overlooking ground floor accommodation. Site as beautiful and...

Excellent accommodation in a wonderful setting. Natural grounds which were perfect for the whole family including the three dogs. Swimming in the spring fed pond, walking through the developing woodlands and sundowners with a view of the hills. We could not have asked for more. The cottages were spot on, the veg box and local beer much appreciated. The whole...

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...
