  • "This was our second stay and would happily stay again, the new TV was a nice touch and this time we were more prepared for the additional time the oven takes to cook."

    When we stayed in winter there was two patio chairs along with the table on the roof terrace, we didn’t get to sit there in winter due to poor weather, we had a fantastic spring week this time though with lots of sunshine, however the chairs had been removed with just the table remaining meaning we missed out on early evening sat on the sun terrace, would highly recommend returning the chairs

  • "This little place does exactly what it says on the tin, yes te stairs are steep, exactly as it states in the description."

    The parking is directly opposite and we had no issues parking be it day or night. The accommodations clean tidy and something that is rare in holiday let’s the bed is comfy, outside space is tidy and the roof terrace is an added benefit. The kitchen is well equipped however the oven is very slow to get to temperature however the pub down the road does fantastic food. Great value for money and recommended for any short break

  • "Bathroom mouldy, wobbly toilet, dangerous stairs, poor quality kitchenware."

    We left early & found alternative accommodation.

  • "Hadn't realised the stairs would be quite so steep."

    Awful navigating to the toilet in the middle of the night. Bathroom needs a refurb - looked very old and tired and not particularly clean. Shame the log burner was not allowed to be used. Parking across on the pebbles stoned area was difficult although we always managed to get a space be it rather tight at times. Would not go back there.

  • "The parking situation."

    We were advised to park on the cobbles opposite the cottage. The neighbour opposite told us we couldn’t park in the space as it was his. He was rude which spoilt our arrival at the cottage. Also when we returned from a day out there was no space to park on the cobbles so we had to put it in the car park down the road and it had to be moved out by 7am or more money put in the machine for further hours. I did call on the day we arrived and was assured we could park on the cobbles. We were due to check in at 3 . We arrived at 1.30 so went into the town and had a coffee. The key box was shut at this time. When we got back at 3 the key box was open. We knocked on the door and found the cleaners were still there. We had to wait another 20 mins. The house was tired looking and the bathroom could have done with a deep clean. There were cobwebs on the ceiling. There was also a terrible smell from the drains in the back garden which infiltrated the house. When we got back the smell was terrible. This could explain why 2 tins of air freshener were left on the side in the kitchen.

The property

Offering a couple a wonderful retreat to get away to in the northern Lakes is this lovely cottage, All Saints View, in the small market town of Cockermouth.

Close to Bassenthwaite Lake and not far from Keswick, this calm town is less of a tourist spot and more of a hidden gem, with its own streets steeped in history and heritage to discover.

The ground floor of the property begins with the living room/diner where you can serve up a romantic breakfast for your other half, and come back from a long walk to the comfort of the sitting area and the TV.

The kitchen has all you need for a self-catered stay, and completing the ground floor is bathroom.

Once up the steep cottage stairs, come to the king-size bedroom here, with a decorative metal bed frame paired well with the classic cottage features, like the now decorative fireplace.

From the landing head through the patio doors and onto the first-floor balcony terrace overlooking the church and the graveyard, a scenic and serene spot to wind down whatever time of day.

Step out onto the streets of Cockermouth and discover what this pretty town has to offer; among the local shops and quaint country pubs, you can also find a piece of history, with Cockermouth being the birthplace of William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy, their Georgian family home is now owned by the National Trust and offers an insight into what life was like in the 1770s for all those who lived there.

Head over to Bassenthwaite Lake for a picturesque walk along the waters, with walks and trails accessed on the eastern side.

On the shores of Bassenthwaite is The Lakes Distillery, a wonderful distillery in a renovated Victorian farmstead, offering tours and tastings for visitors, it's a perfect couples activity.

The Lake District Wildlife Park is home to an array of animals including zebras, lemurs, otters and many more all within the beautiful Lakes setting.

Nearby peaks and fells include Grisedale Pike, Grasmoor, Mellbreak and Watch Hill, so walkers can delight in an epic choice of routes and trails.

Spend a peaceful break in the northern Lakes with your loved one at All Saints View.

About the location

COCKERMOUTH

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.
