The property

Dora's Cottage is situated in the middle of Cockermouth, a market town in Cumbria.

This quaint whitewashed semi-detached home accommodates up to three guests in two bedrooms, making it perfect for a couple or small family seeking a Lake District getaway.

After a day of sightseeing in Cumbria, park on the driveway with space for two cars and cross the threshold into your holiday home.

Cosy up on the sofa in the living area while your partner serves you a romantic dinner in the kitchen/dining area, which is fully-equipped to suit all your culinary requirements.

After dinner, retire to the conservatory to unwind, or if the weather permits, pour a bottle of champagne in the private garden, which is furnished.

Toast your stay here and watch the sun set over Cumbria.

As night-time approaches, head upstairs to the walk-in shower to wash away the day's activities, and then retire to the large king-size bedroom.

This floor contains a single bedroom as well.

Rest up for another exciting day of touring Cumbria, the coast, and the Lake District.

Dora's Cottage is in the historic market town of Cockermouth in the heart of the Lake District.

There is plenty for everyone to enjoy including the National Trust - Wordsworth House and Garden, Memorial Gardens, and Percy House Gallery.

Cockermouth is the ideal place to unwind and spend quality time with your significant other or family.

This wonderful home is also ideally positioned close to Keswick, a delightful market town with an abundance of attractions, restaurants, and cafés.

Castlerigg Stone Circle, the Derwent Pencil Museum, and the Keswick Museum are all must-sees, while foodies will enjoy the many restaurants and bars, such as Merienda, Lakes Bar and Bistro, and the Drunken Duck.

There are numerous cafes for individuals in need of a caffeine fix, including the Keswick Coffee House and the Bay Tree.

Carlisle, a charming city in Cumbria, and is located further away but is worth the visit as Carlisle Castle, Carlisle Cathedral, and Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery are located there.

Additionally, the city is situated among magnificent countryside and parks, including Hammond's Pond and Heysham Park.

About the location


Bassenthwaite Lake 7 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

The small country market town of Cockermouth is situated in the quiet north-western part of the Lake District, a largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, yet only 13 miles from Keswick. The town is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth offers a good variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, but (of course) the main attraction of the area is the beautiful scenery and excellent walking in the northern lakes – Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.

Please Note: There is a Good Housekeeping Bond of £100.
