    • “Quite secluded but peaceful. A perfect base to access all notable locations in the Lakes. Our 2 small dogs settled quickly. A nearby pub is 10/15 mins walk away. Serving good quality food. Otherwise stock up and make use of the modern fully equipped kitchen. A very good sized bathroom complete with shower cubicle. On arrival we found muffins and a pint of milk waiting in the kitchen. Very hospitable.”

    • “We have just spent a weekend in the best cottage we've ever stayed in, spotlessly clean, well stocked, plenty of room and comfortable. Situated in a small village with the main A66 just yards away, but far enough away not to notice it, so you can easily get about. A fantastic pub 15 minutes walk away, or 5 in the car, which served a superb Jennings ale and good food, and dog friendly is the cottage. Both Keswick and Cockermouth are minutes away in the car...good record shop, music shop and brewery are in Cockermouth...Keswick was just, well...busy...but worth a visit.”

    • “This is an excellent holiday let. Spotlessly clean with a modern kitchen and quite a spacious bathroom. It was very comfortable too. It is near the main road which you can hear in the distance from the house and the courtyard is small and away from the house, however, these factors did not stop us from having a wonderful holiday. Being near the road meant that we could easily travel around the area. There is a Sainsbury's in Cockermouth which is very convenient too. Check well in advance what time the key will be available to collect.”

    • “Dash cottage is a lovely place to relax, 5 minutes from Cockermouth, clean, homely, all the facilities are top notch, couldn't fault it. We've booked to stay again next year.”

    Mr Hopwood, Stockport, October 2018

    • “This was a pleasant cottage but felt a bit 'dated' and resting on its laurels (ie the 2009 'Gold' certificate on display). Internally the cottage was clean, the beds were comfy and the kitchen well equipped, however for my taste the living room was a bit dated and sparse. The outside of the property was a little grubby looking and whilst there was a lovely garden which was a real suntrap there were no comfortable outside seats. Sitting on a hard wooden picnic table for any length of time isn't really a viable way to enjoy the sun - although ideal for eating a meal al fresco. We were very fortunate to have fantastic weather but enjoyment of the outside space was compromised by the lack of comfortable seating. The setting was lovely, although much nearer to the busy A66 than anticipated. The location is very convenient for getting to nearby attractions. I really enjoyed my stay, as did my companion and my dog, but in comparison to other cottages that I have stayed for similar price felt the standard was not comparable.”

    • “Very convienent location for many locations in the Lake District. We had a lovely stay with plenty of room. Wifi would be a nice addition to this property.”

Regional Information

COCKERMOUTH 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.
