A first-floor apartment in the centre of Cockermouth that’s an ideal base for a couple or young family looking to explore the North Lakes and unspoilt Cumbrian coast.

Located just off Cockermouth’s main street, you will find a good selection of local independent shops and restaurants on your doorstep.

In the summer, you can catch a complimentary bus to beautiful Buttermere from the town (runs from 17th July to 5th September). Walk from the centre of town onto the top of Watch Hill (3.5 miles) for a fabulous view across the Solway Firth to Scotland, or south to the hills and the northern valleys. Or, why not try out some of the bike tracks or Go Ape at Whinlatter Forest, only 7.5 miles away? Keswick is only 14 miles away and hosts the popular Mountain Festival annually with some world-class sports, outdoor activities, talks and films, with live music.

As you enter the property through its private entrance, you will find coat and boot storage just inside the front door. Head up the stairs to the first floor and you will find a bright and spacious lounge with a cosy corner sofa and wall-mounted Smart TV where you can catch up on your favourite series after a day out exploring. Off the lounge is the kitchen which is well equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave a fridge with an ice compartment, and a washing machine. There is a dining table in the lounge where you can enjoy breakfast before heading out to explore.

Definitely recommended but do factor that parking will cost extra though charges in the long stay car parks are reasonable.

The flat (it's not a cottage) was very spacious and well-situated in the centre of Cockermouth. The only problems I had were persuading the boiler and the WiFi router to work. Neither would produce hot water or connect me to the internet, despite appearing to be in full working order. Choices for parking were either town car parks, which would haveRead more added ~40 to the cost, or street parking about half a mile away. I don't begrudge the town restricting parking, but guests should know about this. Hide
