ideal location, excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cockermouth. We found the town, the shops and the places to eat met all our hopes and expectations. La'al Cottage was clean, well equipped and felt very welcoming in every respect.

If we come back to the area it would unquestionably be the first place we would hope to find available for our visit.

ideal for a couple

  • 4 of 5

This tiny little cottage is just the right size for a couple. Everything was well-finished, and looked charming. The bed and pillows were a little firm for our taste, but the linens were good quality.

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage, as the name would suggest is la'al but cosy and quite large enough for two. The property was clean and well equipped. The location is fantastic for the Lakes and for the coast and Cockermouth is well worth a stroll. Plenty of small shops and places to get a bite to eat. If you like the sound of church bells ciming, this is just the place to be. Didn't bother us but it did go on for quite a while. Oh, and parking is difficult, as one can not always find a place on the cobbles but at a squeeze, we managed to find one most times by keeping an open for others leaving.The cottage is on our map for when we return.

The Best for us

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed, clean, very convenient, well sized for 2, great location, superb directions from owner on all levels, friendly town, away from crowds ... well, just what the description promised. We wanted a base close-ish to walks for which the Lakes are known. In short, we wandered lonely as two enjoying the area. Thank you J&G.

Perfect

Lovely cottage tastefully renovated. More extended hotel suite than holiday let. Great town with some nice restaurants and coffee shops. Plenty to do with the northern lakes close by. Thank you.
