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.

The beds are super comfy and the bath is to die for! Ambleside really is 3 minutes walk away - you can get straight to the pubs and restaurants without driving.
