The sitting room with its simple yet stylish interior is where you can end each evening amongst the warmth of the gas woodburning-effect fire in front of the television.

Move upstairs with a refreshing beverage in hand and enjoy a rejuvenating soak in the bath, with a separate shower too for a quick rinse in the morning, before choosing one of the two bedrooms to rest your head.

The property boasts both a double bedroom and a twin with its very own TV so you can watch your favourite shows from the comfort of the covers, as well as this room being made into a super-king-size on request with its handy zip/link functions.

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.
