  • “Lovely house... A bit TARDIS-like, ...”

    Lovely house... A bit TARDIS-like, seeming much bigger on the inside. Quiet location though the view could be better! Comfortable beds. It's a shame the two in the games room aren't proper beds as my 6'3" son didn't find his bed very comfortable. Talking of the games room, we all had great fun playing pool.. was a real treat having the table. Kitchen well equipped. Ample bathrooms and the showers were good. Good parking provision. There's a little garage shop about a mile down the road otherwise ...

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 5 miles to Maryport and South Allonby Bay which is a nice beach with a Roman fortlet and Anglon-Saxon saltpans to visit ( for free ) near Crosscanonby.

About the location

GREAT CLIFTON

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.
