Things to do

-Local history. Cockermouth is a charming old market town, the heart of which has barely changed in centuries. There’s the remnants of a Norman castle that you can visit on set dates, and the 19th Century Jennings Brewery, which is still in operation and open for tours. Famous poet William Wordsworth was also born here in the 18th Century.

-Walking and cycling. On the western edge of the Lake District National Park, Cockermouth is a good starting point for walkers. Hills in the area include Ling Fell, Fell Barrow and Low Fell, which are all attractive challenges. Cyclists can make use of the scenic West Cumbria Cycle Network, much of which follows the course of a disused railway.

-Coast. The Cumbrian coast is also an option for visitors to Cockermouth holiday homes. It’s quick and easy to reach by car and is lined with quaint fishing villages and towns, each with their own fascinating history. Whitehaven for instance, is now a sleepy coastal town, but was once one of England’s busiest ports.

-< strong>Lakes. If you head southeast you’ll come to the many beautiful lakes of the national park. Loweswater is a classic example, bedded in a landscape of tall green hills and protected by the National Trust. You can rent a rowing boat from the shore here. Bassenthwaite Lake meanwhile supports the rare Vendace fish, found only here and in Derwent water.

-Golf. If you’re a golfer then a good way to appreciate the sublime natural landscapes near Cockermouth would be to play a round at the town’s golf course, which has 18 holes amid towering hills – Melbreak, Grassmoor and Whiteside are three mountains that dominate the unforgettable scenery here.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The property was accurately described, spacious, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Several guests commented on how comfortable the beds were. As a group of old friends who came together via playing rugby at school we enjoyed the ability to all watch the Six Nations games in the downstairs lounge. It would be impossible to improve on its location in relation to the facilities of central Keswick. It is just on the edge of the centre, with a good range of pubs and restaurants within five minutes' walk. As must be expected in such a central location, parking is limited immediately outside The Gables, (one dedicated space on the premises and overnight/two hour daytime very close by), but the welcome letter does explain this and gives guidance on where to find unlimited on street parking from 100 yards away. Despite indifferent weather, we enjoyed the Derwentwater launch to Lodore, the Falls, lunch in the very nicely refurbished Lodore Hotel, and a walk back around Derwentwater to Hawse End landing stage. Also Honister Mine tour, lunch in the Fish and the Bridge at Buttermere and the lovely drive back over Newlands Hause followed by a late afternoon walk from Underskiddaw car park onto Latrigg for what must be one of the best Lakeland views for a very small effort! We are intending to return to the Gables in 2018.
