The cottage was very comfortable, close to town and well supplied.

  • 5 of 5

Cockermouth was a delightful town. We stayed for a week and ate at different restaurants everyday. We were pleased with all of them. It was cold so we really appreciated the good heating system. Parking required some planning but it worked for us. We enjoyed not staying in a busy tourist town. The locals were very nice.

Lovely little house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for 4 nights as a surprise for my partners 30th birthday, it did not disappoint!

The cottage is lovely and well kept and is in a perfect location. Sainsburys is a 5 minute walk away and the Bitter End pub is brilliant. We ate there twice, food was lovely and it's literally a 30 second walk away from the front door. The small town of Cockermouth is right on your doorstep too.

We would definitely stay here again if we come back to the lakes!

the house is really nice, everything you need is there. The accommodation is really state of the art and well kept. Location in the city center is very convenient, shops and restaurants are on walking distance. We really enjoyed our stay.

Everything we could have asked for and some!

  • 5 of 5

Great property, beautifully restored cottage in a central location in Cockermouth! Very quite! Easy, short walking distance to restaurants, pubs and shops. Perfect for 2 people! Kitchen is perfectly equipped and complete meals could be prepared. Decent size bedroom, small but cozy living/dinning room w/ electric fireplace. Parking was a bit tricky at first, but as soon as we understood that we can park "on the cobbles" in the neighborhood, we had no issue at all. We felt Cockermouth was the perfect location to discover the Lake District as well as the Solway Coast. Great place for golfers as well (we played the golf courses in Cockermouth, Maryport and Seascale and had a fantastic time). We highly recommend this property!

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.
