Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
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 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, barn owls, red squirrels, badgers and the occasional kingfisher that visits the beck.

Southwaite Green consists of four cottages that were by the own...

Cottage complex at Southwaite Green sits at head of Lorton Valley, just two miles from lovely Cockermouth. Beautiful setting with view across to Skiddaw. Great location near west coast with easy access to hills, and towns. Dog friendly and very good eco credentials. We may well return.

Great location for Northern Lake District. Beautiful, rural location but close enough to "civilisation" - Cockermouth 15 minutes drive away. Quiet location with lots of wildlife and birdlife. House itself - we stayed in Buttermere - specially adapted for wheelchair users like myself. Great single level accommodation - spacious with lots of turning space. Double bed in master bed has...

Management response:

The terrain is quite rocky and a bit hilly around here! Thanks for the lovely review.

We stayed here with our three dogs over Easter for a week and we loved it there. The accommodation was amazing. I love the eco friendly side as we try to follow this lifestyle in our home. It was homely and had a lovely log burning fire. There is also a lovely walk on the property up to the lake,...

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...
