The property

Carpenters Cottage, a thoughtfully restored joiners workshop, sits on the edge of the glorious Lake District National Park, on the outskirts of the lovely market town of Cockermouth.

With astounding countryside, the coastline of Solway and a wealth of fascinating towns within easy distance to explore, this is a wonderful stay for a small family or a group of friends wishing to get away.

Feel instantly welcomed by the property's tasteful interior, it comes with unique reverse-level accommodation meaning that both the beautifully finished king-size and twin bedrooms are found on the ground floor.

Also on this level you will find an immaculate, brightly tiled bathroom offering the choice of a bath and a walk-in shower cubicle.

The living area thoughtfully rests on the first floor of the cottage as it makes the most of the natural light flooding in from the Velux windows.

Comforting and open-plan, this layout has all that you need from a fully-equipped and first class kitchen to a snug seating area for all to enjoy, plus attractive exposed beams bring a sense of charm to the place.

To the outside of Carpenters Cottage, you’ll find a truly serene spot to sit out and enjoy a refreshing drink, or perhaps even a tasty alfresco meal.

The lovely market town of Cockermouth lies just one mile away, the birthplace of William Wordsworth, is packed with charm as well as a multitude of wonderful spots to eat, drink and shop.

Visitors of all tastes will find this an ideal holiday base as walkers and cyclists can explore the magnificent Lake District, while the idyllic Solway Coast is also readily available.

The characterful market town of Keswick is also within easy reach and is worth a day of exploring.

Use this alluring getaway to truly unwind in the wonders of Cumbria and the Lake District.

Unfortunately we are not allowed to have any commercial vehicles, Motorhomes or Caravans, trailers parked overnight at the property.
We are lucky to have red squirrels foraging at Strawberry How and would kindly ask people to drive and cycle slowly.Thank you so much.

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.
