The property

The Hayloft Cottage is a characterful Cumbrian Cottage, situated in the quaint village of Eaglesfield near Cockermouth.

The less frequented areas of the National Park including, Buttermere, Crummock and Loweswater are all within very easy reach. The village of Eaglesfield is situated in rural surroundings close to the beautiful lakes of Loweswater, Buttermere, Crummock and Ennerdale.

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.
