Enclosed garden that was so good for the dogs.
Enclosed garden that was so good for the dogs.- Mrs Berry, June 2021
“Dash Cottage is a home from home, the cottage was spotless from top to bottom, fabulous beds, quiet, nice fluffy towels.”
Everything you need for a comfortable week. Would have appreciated a dryer but otherwise perfect....- Mr Hopwood, October 2019
“Our only problem was the steepness of the stairs, my wife's illness meant that it was a struggle to get up the fairly steep stairs at Dash Cottage.”
Otherwise we had no problems and found no faults.- Rev Kirkman, September 2019
“A well presented and well equipped cottage in a location that was very convenient for the NE Lakes and coast - we had lovely weather all week, which helped as we explored the coast above Maryport, plus Ullswater, Buttermere and Derwent Water, as well as a trip on the Ravenglass-Eskdale railway.”
The osprey chicks had just hatched, too ! The mobile phone signal was fine, so made up for the lack of specific wi-fi because we could hot-spot our laptops and we weren't around enough to worry about the sitting area being separated from the property. But be warned if you have mobility issues and need to use the bathroom at night that there are three steps down and three narrow steps up between the bedrooms and the bathroom - there is a grab rail to assist.- Miss Scrine, June 2019
“Was very disappointed where the garden was, I expected to open doors and I would be in the garden instead if having to walk about 30 steps to get to garden.”
And for the pub being 5 mins away was exactly 15/20 mins walk to find out it is closed due to refub, and no where to really walk our dog.- Mr Kelly, June 2019
“Disappointed to find that the garden whilst enclosed as stated was not actually attatched to the house and the dogs had to be on leads to get to it, not exactly convenient in the middle of the night.”
we have seen this before but normally when it is stated in the description we chose not to book those properties, so we suggest it is added to the information online. Also this is the first of your cottages that has not had wifi, though we thought it would not bother us, in fact we needed it for tide times and also to check local events, not having it meant we got caught up in traffic due to cycle event which we could have avoided if we had been able to access the details of the route. Learning experience for us and we will definitely check details and make further enquiries before booking our next trip.- Mr Bush, May 2019
“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, 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.- Mrs Lumley, June 2018
“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.- Ms Heffner, June 2018
Dash Cottage is a delightful and cosy Cumbrian cottage situated within the Lake District National Park.
It is perfectly placed to enjoy the fantastic scenery of the western and northern Lake District and coast. Dash Cottage is a 19th century terraced holiday cottage situated in the charming rural village of Embleton, which is situated between the popular bustling Lakeland town of Keswick and the Georgian market town of Cockermouth, the birth place of William Wordsworth.
The surrounding scenery is stunning, you can enjoy the fresh air of the Lake District whilst walking, hiking, cycling, playing golf, exploring or simply relaxing.
The less frequented vale of Lorton, Buttermere, Crummock Water, Ennerdale and Loweswater are all within a short drive, Dash Cottage certainly is a wonderful base from which to explore the northern and western Lakes.

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.
