    “Set is in a rural location but only a 5 minute drive from Wigton where 3 supermarkets and other local shops will ensure you will have all the supplies you need.”

    Plenty of eating places in the town and nearby. The cottage more than lives up to the photographs in the listing. It has all the facilities you could wish for, a home from home. Mrs. Wilson (owner) is a very welcoming host, fresh flowers in the cottage and a welcome pack was greatly appreciated and enjoyed.

    Plenty of eating places in the town and nearby. The cottage more than lives up to the photographs in the listing. It has all the facilities you could wish for, a home from home. Mrs. Wilson (owner) is a very welcoming host, fresh flowers in the cottage and a welcome pack was greatly appreciated and enjoyed. Although there was a comprehensive information folder outlining the operation of appliances etc she spent the time to show us where everything was and how they worked. There were no problems during our stay but I am confident, had there been, it would have been quickly sorted. A plus for us was the ability to take our dog with us. We used this as a base to explore the hills and trails around Keswick. There is a book in the cottage listing walks suitable for dogs which we used. I found the walks Aira Force and Friar's Crag very rewarding for us all. Friar's Crag was the longer of the two walks and there was the bonus of stopping at the Mary Mount Hotel (dog friendly) for a coffee about the halfway point. Aira Force is equally dog friendly having both a kiosk and a café. One day the weather was clagged in and our walk in the Ullswater area would have been a waste of time so we walked up "Binsey", a hill which is not to far away from the cottage. On a good day I'm told you have great views of the surrounding area, the Solway coast, Keswick and Derwent water, perhaps next time. Returned to cottage, dried off, and spent an enjoyable afternoon exploring Cockermouth and Maryport. All in all a great few days away and I would have no hesitation staying in the cottage again

About the location

WIGTON

Carlisle 12 miles; Keswick 20 miles.

A traditional Cumbrian market town with a charter granted in 1262, which still holds a market each Friday in the covered market hall, along with an open air car boot sale. Wigton is a popular centre for shopping, pubs and restaurants, and also boasts a theatre, bowls, swimming, tennis and other sports. Lord Melvyn Bragg was a native of Wigton, and used the town (called Thurston in some of his writings) and the surrounding area as the setting for his novels including ‘A Time to Dance’. Located 18 miles from Penrith it is a good base for the attractions of the North Lakes, the cathedral city of Carlisle, 12 miles away, Keswick, just north Derwentwater and close to Lake Bassenthwaite, and the natural beauty of the West Cumbrian Coast. Hadrian’s Wall is within 25 miles, while the Scottish Borders, and Gretna Green, are within easy reach.
