  • "Silver fern Cockermouth was absolutely fantastic."

    Don't judge from the outside it's beautiful inside and the decor was right to my taste. It is on a main road which is fine with me so just bare that in mind I like noise outside. Only thing was we didn't know it had no parking. There was a car park round the corner which was just flustrating agyer driving from work and dying for a wee. If we knew we would of resheared where to park. Also the sky in the bedrooms didn't work not sure why. But appart from that the house was perfect.

The property

Nestled in the centre of Cockermouth is this fabulous terraced townhouse, 4 Castlegate.

4 Castlegate is a Grade II listed building, boasting charming original features, including panelled walls and original doors, while having easy access to the Lake District National Park and Cumbrian coastal towns, making it a superb dwelling for a family or group of six!

Venture inside the property to a phenomenal kitchen/diner that has fabulous neutral finishes and is fitted with all the appliances you desire to create great dishes; after rustling up a meal with the double electric oven, head over to the oak dining table and catch up with your group about your explorations.

Head upstairs to the first floor to discover a spacious living room containing a leather corner sofa with enough seats for everyone to curl up on whilst watching a move on the TV.

In the evening, head to bed in a tastefully furnished super king-size room located on the same floor; the room has its own walk-in shower and extra seating, for your convenience.

Continue upstairs to two more well-presented bedrooms with luxurious touches, one being a king-size with more seating to unwind on, and the other being a king-size bed with a TV and an extra day bed, to suit your sleeping arrangements.

Head back downstairs to find a brilliant, bright bathroom that showcases a wonderful roll top bath with a hand-held shower to soak up in after a day of travels.

Outside, enjoy an evening glass of wine in the private courtyard as you socialise with your loved ones.

The townhouse's location is truly superb, with your amenities being less than a mile away; walk a little way to the traditional Castle Bar and enjoy a tasty pint in the terraced beer garden.

Continue further into town and stroll down the River Cocker, before touring the Percy House Gallery and the Wordsworth House & Garden, or take the family for a picnic at Fitz Park!

Those wanting to make the most of the lakes should travel into the national park and to Bassenthwaite Lake and go birdwatching at its Dubwath Silver Meadows Nature Reserve, hike Skiddaw peak to the viewpoint of Whitewater Dash, before partaking in sailing or kayaking through the lake's waters.

For the sea breeze, visit the coastal town of Workington where you can tour the ruins of the once-glorious Workington Hall, embark on the Sea to Sea Cycle route towards Whitehaven, or enjoy a day of sun and sand at Moss Bay Beach.

Make your way further into the Lakes for more outdoors activities, visit the many attractions the market town of Keswick has to offer, or enjoy more of the coast at the port town of Whitehaven.

For an unforgettable adventure in Cumbria, choose 4 Castlegate.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £150.

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.
