We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would go back again.

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, neat and well presented and thoughtfully supplied with everything even down to the sewing kit! The location was very convenient as it was in the town centre but parking on the cobbles was sometimes difficult. I did manage to lock myself out once without any contact details with me but the lady in the Bitter End pub was very helpful managed to find the phone number of the person holding another set of keys.

A beautiful L'al cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a really special 60th birthday in this immaculate l'al cottage. Nothing to fault it! The bed was the most comfortable we've ever slept in,the kitchen a delight to cook in, and the house was just so cosy. It was spot on for walking into Cockermouth and for driving into the wonderful Lake District.

We chose really well finding this cottage. Everything we needed was provided and it was in a good location for exploring. We enjoyed being able to walk down into Cockermouth for shops, pubs etc.

Recommend you bring your slippers to feel totally at home!!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the owner helpful with everything she was always quick to respond when needed. Everything is thought of for you there. Kitchen equipment, little decorations. Even some toilet rolls!

Such a lovely a clean cottage we really have nothing bad to say at all. We broke a glass when we were there and the owner was so relaxed about it she was lovely.

Great place to stay if you're looking to explore the lake district. The town is lovely and has everything you need.

Once again we would highly recommend this place and are hoping to visit again in the summer. There is so much to do there we still have things we want to see!

Thanks for a lovely stay.
