    “Nice property in a good location but let down by the following:- 1a)Bottle and cardboard bins in shed were overflowing with no info on how they are emptied.”

    1b) Overgrown shrubs obstruct access to all the outside bins, particularly unpleasant experience when shrubs are wet from rain. 1c) Impractical tiny kitchen bin inside cupboard. There is plenty of room to put a full size kitchen bin next to the fridge. 2) All routes to the parking spaces are extremely narrow and challenging for larger cars. The property details should include a fuller description of the parking access.

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.
