There are a couple of steps up to the dining room, where you can enjoy a more formal dinner together by the fire.
Light breakfasts, however, can be enjoyed back in the country-cottage kitchen, around the smaller table.
The bathroom is also housed on the ground floor, while the bedrooms can be reach via the staircase, posing a single and two king-size doubles.

Enjoy excellent walking trails and bridleways, along with the scenery at nearby Bassenthwaite Lake National Nature Reserve.
Whatever you choose to do, there is plenty on offer in this unspoilt region of the Lake District.
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..
