It was just like home from home with all the equipment required for the holiday. En-suite bedroom, family bathroom, washer/dryer dishwasher, central heating and very clean and fresh.The Lodge was so comfortable and warm. On site there was a swimming pool, restaurant, shop etc. Also good for children with play areas. All in all it was great, we would go back and would highly recommend.

The cottage was easy to find with plenty of parking available on the cobbles. Beautifully decorated throughout with all the home comforts you need. Cockermouth is very quiet at this time of year but this meant that we were able to have meals out without making any bookings. The Bitter End and Castle Bar pubs serve excellent meals; the latter being our favourite as it had a log fire and showed the football. Overall, the cottage provided a great base for a short break.
