  • “1. It would be useful if your information stated that the key lock box is by the back door and not the front.”

    2. Directions are given as from Eaglesfield. Can’t imagine why anyone would approach from there. I know the area very well. 3. Info recommends a visit to Cockermouth Castle but this is not generally open to the public. It is occasionally open on special occasions. The cottage has all you need and is in a perfect area with the advantage of all the facilities Cockermouth has to offer and the proximity to the lakes and the often forgotten history and beauty of the west coast.

This two-bedroom cottage is nestled within the centre of the ancient market town of Cockermouth, situated just outside of the Lake District National Park.

The property has been presented to a high standard throughout and is ideal for those looking for an adventure, whilst indulging in a spot of relaxation with loved ones.

The entrance porch is perfect for leaving your muddy boots and hanging your coats, before entering the spacious, open-plan living area.

A well-presented lounge area welcomes you, boasting a light decor and a thick, long-haired rug adding that homely feel to the room, perfect for unwinding of an evening in front of the warming electric woodburning stove.

Cockermouth is an ancient market town and has been ever-popular with tourists over the years for its wealth of attractions and easy access into the picturesque Lake District National Park.

The property is ideally placed overlooking the old Georgian building of Wordsworth House and Gardens, a must-see during your trip.

Discover several art exhibitions inside the Grade I listed building, with the interior being presented how it would have looked when the famous poet himself lived there with his sister Doris - an excellent viewing pleasure for those literary enthusiasts.

For a taste of history, visit Cockermouth Castle, a lovely historic building, also with Grade I listed status and dating back to the 12th century, set in stunning landscaped gardens and offers viewers a look into historical architecture.

The Lake District National Park has plenty of countryside sights, with opportunities for walking and cycling, whilst a selection of nearby lakes are perfect for those keen fishers.

About the location


Bassenthwaite Lake 7 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

The small country market town of Cockermouth is situated in the quiet north-western part of the Lake District, a largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, yet only 13 miles from Keswick. The town is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth offers a good variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, but (of course) the main attraction of the area is the beautiful scenery and excellent walking in the northern lakes – Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.
