    “Lovely convenient location and nice sized furnished property for 5 persons.”


    All hard floors definitely in need of a proper clean, not just a vacuum. Need bins in bathrooms/toilet as most of the bins in the house hold the cleaner's products/materials so are unusable and a medium/large free-standing bin in the kitchen would be more convenient and efficient. Generally really pleased with the house and would stay again if in the area. Towels, linen and beds really clean and comfortable. Access to the property/parking via the VERY narrow roads is very nervy, not leaving much room for manoeuvre - but these small access roads weren't built for the amount of cars now driving or parking on them.

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.
