The property

Resting in Cockermouth, Cumbria is this marvellous, semi-detached house of Dolphin Retreat.

Offering a family of eight spacious and dog-friendly accommodation.

Dolphin Retreat is a fantastic retreat for any break in the Lake District!

Upon arrival you will be greeted by three off-road parking spaces, before heading inside to a bright and airy hall.

Turn left to find a large living/dining room, where you can spend the evening unwinding in front of the TV or catching up on the day's antics at the dining table.

Move through the property to the fabulous kitchen, a room that has been completed to a high standard and offers the designated chef ample food preparation space, along with a good selection of appliances to fix up top-notch meals with.

The utility is next door and additionally offers a washing machine, for added convenience.

When the day winds to an end, head upstairs to choose between five thoughtfully laid-out bedrooms, including two king-sizes, with one hosting a superb bathroom that features a corner bath and separate walk-in shower, as well as a double with TV and two singles.

The first floor is completed by a family bathroom with a bath, where you can enjoy a moment of tranquility amongst the bubbles; the ground floor also hosts a cloakroom, to save those morning queues.

Finishing off the interior of the property is a sunny conservatory/games room, where you can enjoy spending some quality time with your loved ones as you enjoy an array of entertainment.

A leisurely stroll will bring you into the heart of Cockermouth, where you can discover eateries, pubs and shops in abundance, along with a handful of attractions, from the National Trust property of Wordsworth House and the pretty Memorial Gardens, to plains of Fitz Park and Harris Park, where you can walk your furry friends.

Venture to Keswick for a day packed with amusements, including the Derwent Pencil Museum, Keswick Museum and The Puzzling Place, before heading down to the adjacent lake of Derwentwater with watersports opportunities, paths encircling the waters, including the Walla Crag Trail, and beautiful woodland neigbouring the lake.

Pooley Bridge isn't far and rests at the top of Ullswater, where you can hire boat from Ullswater Steamers to the nearby Aira Force Waterfall and Place Fell, and view those beautiful sights, before returning to Pooley Bridge for a sweet treat at Granny Dowbekins Tearooms.

The National Park is home to a wealth of picture-postcard towns, including Penrith and Bowness-on-Windermere, to name a couple; along with fantastic activities and wonders for those wanting to take on the outdoors, including the famed Scafell Pike that offers hikers with a 978-metre climb.

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.
