    • “My family and I had a lovely time staying at Groom Cottage, Lorton. It was a very cosy, beautifully decorated house with fantastic views and convenient for both Cockermouth and Keswick. We loved the attention to detail with the deoor and ornaments and the bountiful supply of CDs, books and Dvds. It was great that we could conveniently access the keys by the safe box attached to the side of the porch. We particularly enjoyed the sun room which was great to relax in with a glass of wine after a long walk over the fells. The kitchen was a bit on the small side but had everything we needed to prepare meals. All in all a truly memorable stay.”

    • “This cottage was perfect for our stay in the Lakes. I can’t fault it. I’ll definitely think about coming back to Groom Cottage should I be back in the area.”

    Mr Thornley, October 2018

    • “This cottage is one of the best we have stayed in! Very clean, comfortable, and cosy. The location is great, many walks straight from door, and lots of info provided by the owners about the area. We took our two dogs (free of charge!) - one is a Labrador Retriever and the other is a Labrador, so quite big dogs and we still found that we had enough space without tripping over each other! The cottage has a very calm atmosphere and is the perfect place to relax and recharge. We will be returning in a different season!”

    Mrs Hall, Prudhoe, Northumberland, June 2018

    • “Lovely little cottage everything in it you needed, was small but comfortable and clean. Could walk to local pub about a mile and a small shop less than half a mile. Cockamouth was only 5 miles away. Good bus service if you did,nt want to use a car. Some beautiful walks near by. Groom Cottage also had lots of books on the area which my husband and l enjoyed reading. We will go back to Groom Cottage another year a week was,nt long enough.”

    Mrs Southwell, Sittingbourne, June 2018

    • “The cottage was as advised, and the furniture and fittings were of a superior standard. Although a small cottage it had everything we needed. The amount of books and literature about everything regarding the lakes was exceptional. When we got home we had a message from the owner thanking us for leaving the cottage in such a clean and tidy condition. All in all a lovely cottage in a lovely location.”

    Mr Russell, Treharris, June 2018

Regional Information

LORTON Braithwaite 4.3 miles; Cockermouth 6 miles; Keswick 7 miles. Lorton is a village in the district of Allerdale, in Cumbria and is made up of two small villages – Low Lorton and High Lorton, both of which are nestled at the northern end of the Vale of Lorton. Surrounded by the mountains such as Grasmoor, Hopegill Head and Whiteside it is a perfect destination for exploring a number of hillwalks and visitors are encouraged to visit the 12th century St. Cuthbert’s church. Lorton itself is relatively untouched by tourism and yet is only approximately 4 miles away from Cockermouth, which offers access to the A66 road. Other nearby settlements include Loweswater and Brigham. The Whinlatter Pass road offers a scenic drive and connects Lorton with Braithwaite. Within an easy drive the nearby town of Cockermouth has plenty of places to eat and drink and is of course 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. A great location whatever you choose to do.
