This refurbished ground-floor apartment offers the perfect base to explore the Lakes, relax and unwind with a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants a short walk away.
Make the most of this comfortable hideaway in Cockermouth when you plan your great escape to the Lake District. Sleeping two guests, the two-bedroom, ground-floor retreat is ideal for a couple or a pair of friends looking to be close to independent shops and eateries, as well as to impressive scenery, great walks and places of historical interest. From here, step straight out to potter in the interesting outlets of the town and to see its castle or visit the National Trust’s Wordsworth House and Gardens. Make forays into the Lake District, about 2 miles away, including to Bassenthwaite Lake, a 7-mile drive, known for its array of wildlife.
Enter the apartment via the porch, where you can hang your jackets and leave your walking boots, then find yourselves in an open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner. Settle in here on the soft seating after your exhilarating excursions. Find a film to enjoy together on the Smart TV, make plans for the following day and decide whether to dine out in Cockermouth or prepare something tasty here at home – you’ll have all the equipment you need in the kitchen area. When you are ready to lay your heads on your pillows for the night, wander through to one of the two inviting double bedrooms. Awake to have a hot shower before breakfast. You’ll also find parking for one car with this apartment.
From Cockermouth, drive 8.5 miles to the beautiful lakes of Loweswater and Crummock Water, where you will find footpaths to follow through magical scenery. Have a day out in Keswick, 14 miles away. Book tickets for a show at the Theatre by the Lake, try your hand at water sports or take a cruise out on picturesque Derwentwater while you are here.
