  • "We had a lovely stay at Manse cottage but found parking a bit risky, definitely need a banks man as traffic is rather speedy and busy on Main Street, still it is a beautiful area and not a problem for a younger couple."

  • "Easy instructions to reach cottage."

    Lovely place to stay. We would like to say that we broke a glass during our stay, what would you like us to do? Thank you

  • "The internet connection was extremely temperamental and we had several days without any connection."

    We contacted the owner who did try to resolve the problem, but in the end we had to wait for it to resolve itself.

Cockermouth 3 miles.

Resting in the village of Great Broughton in Cumbria is this fine, terraced cottage.

Well suited for a family or couple, this cottage makes a great base for those seeking a quiet getaway with easy access to the North Lakes.

Spend your downtime in the sitting room, furnished with two sofas and a flatscreen TV, plus an gas coal effect fire which is perfect for those cold winter nights.

The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you could need to prepare a home-cooked feast, whilst the dining area provides the space to enjoy your meals over a well-deserved glass of wine.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms; a double and a twin, which are nicely furnished with wooden furniture and served by a bathroom with bath and shower over.

To the outside and the front is a lawned garden with seating where you can enjoy your morning coffee whilst contemplating how to spend the day.

Opposite the property is the Punch Bowl pub which has won pub of the year for its' real ales and live entertainment.

Just a short drive away is the market town of Cockermouth, the birthplace of William Wordsworth and home to a number of interesting shops, pubs and restaurants.

Whilst here you must explore the northern Lakes, providing excellent walking opportunities around Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwentwater, as well as a whole host of water sport activities.

The characterful town of Keswick is also within easy reach and offers a variety of fascinating attractions, such as the Derwent Pencil Museum and Puzzling Place.

A cottage to be enjoyed throughout the year.

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.
