Beautiful cottage stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the last place stayed on our vacation in Iceland, the Dales, and the Lakes, and it was our favourite of 7 accommodations. Beautifully renovated, fully outfitted, and a lovely location right beside a church. The Bitter End pub was just steps away; the food was great and well priced, with a few tables outside to enjoy the sunshine. This is a place we would stay again if we return to The Lakes.

Beautiful cottage, fully equipped and the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from an amazing stay in this beautiful cottage. Perfect location, only minutes walk from the Main Street. The stunning cottage is fully equipped with everything needed for a home away from home holiday. We spent our days walking in the Lakes and the evenings in the many bars and restaurants that Cockermouth has to offer. We will return to this lovely corner of the Lake District very soon and believe we could not find a better place to stay. Thank you for providing such amazing accommodation Jan, hope to be in contact again very soon.

Perfect Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at La'al Cottage was exactly what we hoped it would be...a perfect little getaway! It was comfortable and quiet and the location right next to All Saints Church was almost movie-set idyllic! We visited several local pubs, restaurants and Jennings Brewery! After a busy week of touring Scotland, traveling to Cockermouth and staying in La'al Cottage was wonderful. For anyone not wanting to rent a car, getting to the Lake District by bus is a breeze as well. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommend it for any couple looking for the perfect getaway location!

Comfortable cottage in a lovely town

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was well equipped and in a great position to walk into town. Parking could be a little tricky but we always found a spot on the cobbles for overnight.

My boyfriend and I stayed in La'al cottage for a holiday getaway. When we arrived we were in awe at how quaint and beautiful the cottage was!

We felt right at home... the sofa was so comfortable, the bedroom was very modern and we loved the style of the cottage.

Although the kitchen is smaller than average, we didn't mind at all. We cooked most lunch times and evenings. Tea, coffee and other things like herbs and spices were available for us to use.

The village of Cockermouth is a 2 minute walk from the cottage. One evening we had a takeaway from The Spice Club indian restaurant just a 5 minute walk away. Very delicious, I would recommend!

We enjoyed going out for late night walks and coming back to a warm, cosy cottage.

We loved our stay so much that we asked to stay for a 4th night! Jan was very helpful and quick at responding especially when we decided to stay longer.

Thank you again Jan, we loved staying at La'al cottage so much. We will definitely be back in the near future!
