A little gem
Lovely little cottage, sparkling clean and neat in a lovely quiet corner of Cockermouth. Everything inside is just as nice as the pictures. We found plenty to do in town, restaurants and pubs a plenty. Aspava was our favourite place to eat and we loved both the Castle and the Bitter End. The Lakes are within easy reach and all the well signposted walks. Parking is tight at the cottage, but we managed to get on the cobbles every day..just. The only thing that stops us giving the cottage five stars is that our stay was during the first cold snap of the season and we didn’t find the cottage as warm as we’d have hoped. You can reset the heaters, but they were set to come on at 17 degrees. However, this didn’t spoil our stay and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this quirky little cottage.
Beautifully updated cottage in a historical setting, perfect for a couple
The compact kitchen is very well equipped with all you need to prepare a nice meal. For the ingredients, a large Sainsbury is a 4 minute walk away. If you prefer not to cook while on holiday, there are many pubs and restaurants within a 5-6 minute walk for eat in or takeaway.
There’s a pedestrian bridge across the river at the bottom of Cocker Lane, adjacent to the cottage, allowing easy access to the town center.
The WiFi was fast and reliable. There are many channels available on the television, making the occasional rainy day entertaining.
The bedroom and bath upstairs continue the modern update. Well lit & well fitted.
We look forward to returning.
Lovely cottage in great location. Beautifully presented and appointed, and very comfortable to live in. Parking was not a problem during our stay, on the one evening that the cobbles were full we parked overnight in the Kirkgate car park and used the parking disc to get the first 2 hours during the restricted time the next day free. This is a great spot to explore the lakes and a lovely town to visit.
Beautiful little cottage. Very comfortable. Situated in a lovely little town.
Fabulous week based in Cockermouth for exploring the Lakes. Can’t recommend the cottage enough. Smart modern interior very home from home. Super cosy and lovely to return to after a long walk! Parking was sometimes an issue but we managed. Also didn’t see any recycling facilities so everything went in the bin. Overall I would highly recommend a stay here.
