About the location
Cockermouth 4 miles; Bassenthwaite Lake 12 miles; Keswick 18 miles.
Little Clifton, in the borough of Allerdale, is a small country village located just four miles from the market town of Cockermouth in the Lake District National Park. Centered around the village pub which offers real ale that has been brewed locally, Little Clifton boasts a thriving community in an area that is largely unspoilt and undiscovered. With striking, panoramic views, right across this changing landscape to the imposing mountains, including Melbreak, and also the Loweswater valley, this is a fantastic holiday location. Solway Firth is just a short drive away and offers rugged coastline, sure to be remembered, as does the road south to Ravenglass, a dramatic coastal route which is thought to be one of the more peaceful and scenic UK journeys. 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.
Note: Babes-in-arms only.
