    We booked for my mam’s 70th birthday and wouldn’t hesitate to book again in time for my dad’s! 11 of us in total and the set up suited us perfectly. The owners were on hand and very friendly throughout our stay. Thank you again!

  • "We had a fantastic few days at White Gables."

    The property is clean , spacious and fully equipped with all the facilities we required, with the added bonus of a games room. There is also plenty of parking space. The location is good ,very quiet with views across open fields. Great Clifton is a good location for exploring the Area and we would recommend The Old Ginn House pub and restaurant, a 5 minute walk from White Gables , the food is very good. Cheryl ,the owner of the property was very helpful and friendly and it was lovely to meet her. Overall we would highly recommend White Gables, we could not fault it and we hope to revisit again in the future.

  • "10 out of 10 White Gables was absolutely the perfect house for our group of twelve."

    It was a great place to celebrate my partners 50 birthday with family. Open plan lounge dining kitchen made it a fabulous area to socialise.House was very clean and everyone slept well. This property has 4 bathrooms which made things so much easier when getting ready. The queen room has a lovely view to open fields and was very peaceful. The games room was a great space to chill with DVDs and plenty of books to choose from. We would love to return in the summer months to make use of the outside space and BBQ. The local pub( The Old Gin House) is very close, I'd say less that two mins. We ate there and all our meals were marvellous. The hosts of White Gables are lovely and you feel nothing is to much trouble for them, they live nextdoor so were on hand, but in no way intrusive. There was nothing lacking whatsoever. Would recommend in a heartbeat . We enjoyed days out in St Bees, White Haven, loweswater Hayley and Family

  • "White Gables is absolutely fantastic."

    If you are looking for somewhere for a large group, this is definitely the place for you. Ample easy parking for at least six cars. Six excellent bedrooms- including one which doubles as a large well equipped games room. Very comfortable beds. Beautifully made up rooms. Very handy storage room. Four bathrooms. Excellent large, spacious open plan living/dining/kitchen area with plentiful seating for everyone. Everything you could wish for in the kitchen. Spotlessly clean throughout. Cheryl was extremely helpful in answering my questions and helping with restaurant recommendations before our stay. And we knew that she was just next door if we had needed her during our stay - which we didn’t. All in all, a brilliant place to meet together with family or friends as there is plenty of room for everyone to have their own space but also fantastic communal areas. Add to that- it’s in The Lake District - what more needs to be said!

    Thank you Kath for your lovely feedback. It was a pleasure to have your group staying with us. Glad you enjoyed your birthday celebrations & I will pass your comments on to my cleaning team. Property Owner

    There is loads of parking and the hosts, Colin and Cheryl, are lovely, helpful people. The house is brilliant for family groups with the games room giving a separate area for any children who are well-catered for with separate TV, video player, loads of DVD's, books and games. The dartboard and pool table were great attractions! The dining table seats ten with ease and extra bar-stools are nearby. With four different bathrooms/WC's, there are plenty of options for different sections of the party. A large selection of crockery, cutlery and really big saucepans enables catering on a mass scale to be easy. Lots of fridge space, a freezer and dishwasher were much appreciated. There is also plenty of outdoor seating in two separate areas, along with a good-sized grassed area which is very safe for small children. The weather during our stay wasn't brilliant at times but be aware that no rain = no lakes to see! Just assume that you may get wet at times, dress appropriately and enjoy. The rivers and streams in this part of the world are the cleanest I have ever seen and the air-quality is excellent too.

There's a little garage shop about a mile down the road otherwise it's 4 to 5 miles to Workington for Asda or Tesco.

About the location


Cockermouth 5 miles; Bassenthwaite Lake 15 miles; Keswick 18 miles.

The small country village of Great Clifton is in the borough of Allerdale, just five miles from Cockermouth on the western fringes of the Lake District National Park. Great Clifton has a thriving community centred round the village pub, with the area largely undiscovered and unspoilt. The countryside offers dramatic panoramic views across this constantly changing landscape to the Loweswater valley and mountains beyond, including the imposing Melbreak. The nearby rugged coastline of the Solway Firth is within a short drive and the dramatic coastal route south to Ravenglass and beyond is one of the more scenic and peaceful journeys in the UK. The nearby market town of Cockermouth is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) with Wordsworth's Georgian family home, on the main street, now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth boasts a variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, with the area renowned for the beautiful scenery and superb walking in the northern lakes around Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.
