We are located on the edge of the Lake District National Park, within easy driving distance of both the historic towns of Cockermouth and Keswick, and also the stunning Solway Coast.
In addition to our five fully serviced caravan pitches, we have a popular camping pod here in our pretty gardens and caravan site on the edge of the Lake District, Cumbria. Add a touch of glamping to your break away. Enjoy your holiday or short break in our camping pod, which has so many advantages over traditional camping, and is ready for you to move in to! No fighting with canvas, and plenty of mod cons to enhance your time away. All you need to bring is towels and bedding!
Just a couple of miles from Greysouthen, you will find the historic town of Cockermouth. It is famed for its large number of small independent shops selling antiques, books, speciality foods and more. It has a fantastic selection of restaurants & coffee shops, and is also home to Jennings Brewery, the Kirkgate Arts Centre and the Taste Cumbria Food Festival. A little further on the A66 (about 20 minutes' drive) you'll find the adventure Capital – Keswick. There are too many treasures to mention around the Lake District, but you are in close proximity to many of the finest lakes such as Bassenthwaite, Crummock, Loweswater, Buttermere and Derwentwater. Mountain biking is available in Whinlatter Forest (England's only true mountain forest!), as well as Go Ape. Whether you are in to walking, biking, fishing, riding, or just wandering around the area, you will find plenty to do!
  • Lovely little camping pod in a great location! We enjoyed our stay despite storm Denis stopping us getting out and doing the things we had planned! Would definitely recommend this place!

  • Good place you won't be disappointed

    Krzysztof2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing little space (also much bigger than you'd expect!) Gorgeous location, very clean, everything you need & great Hosts! Couldn't recommend enough!

    Dale2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • This camping pod is cozy and perfect for those who want to pare down, escape the hustle and bustle of life and just live simply. The views are beautifully serene and we were toasty and warm, thanks to the big heater our hosts provided. We welcomed in the New Year in this little pod and had a wonderful time reminding ourselves that there really isn't a lot we need to be happy. A must-stay! Thank you to our hosts for everything.

    Miren2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • What a great little camping pod! Its surprising what a stylish little space can hold. Great alternative to camping!

  • Very cosy, lovely location, good hospitality and amenities. You will not go wrong staying here.

    Stewart2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed one night in the cabin. It was exactly as described, with additional thoughtful touches thrown in. We stayed with 2 quite young children who thought it was an amazing adventure, they were a sad we weren't staying longer.

    Helen2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little pod in a great location. Hosts very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.

    The Cottage is close to supermarkets, shops, pubs and restaurants.
  • We had a lovely time here, good location for exploring different areas of the Lakes. Would recommend Castle bar for a nice dog friendly pub. Thanks :)

    Chloe2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at The Toll Cottage. Alan and Gillian made us feel very welcome and were excellent hosts. The cottage is very well equipped and very clean. The location is perfect and there is plenty to do near by.

    Louise2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant location, would definitely stay again!

    Georgia2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage in a very central location. Hosts were exceptionally helpful and available. We were snug and cosy all weekend. Lots of local shops and places of interest to visit. Superb locale for birdwatching on the river.

    Margaret2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful little place in an amazing location. Alan was super quick to reply to all messages and met us as soon as we arrived to show us around the cottage. Theres plenty of hot water and loads of coal/kindling for a fire at the end of a long day of walking! Will definitely return.

    Laura2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot in Cockermouth overlooking the river and close to all amenities. Everything you could need was in the cottage and it was nice and clean.

    Tom2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent stay. Ideally situated. Hosts made us feel very welcome. Highly recommend this venue for a nice quiet getaway

    Nicola2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful cosy little cottage at the best location. Alan let us check in early, fresh flowers, mince pie, fire lit on arrival, very fast response if needed. Comfy bed, good shower and the log burner is great on a cold night. Highly recommend and definitely will be back.

    A whole self catering house to yourself within 30min (by car) to the heart of the Lake District for less than a hotel room in the Lakes. Right on the coast too! This is not a hotel or serviced BnB! Not in a car? ....Not to worry, bus stop is just outside the house and train station is 10 mins walk away :) All public transport journeys are approx x2 car journey times. Note: Although this house can comfortably sleep 6, i would not suggest 6 adults unless for very short stay due to living space.
    Parking: Free on street parking outside of the house. This is 2 bedroomed house made into 3 bedrooms as no one ever used the other reception room! One bedroom is downstairs consisting of a bunk bed with double at bottom and single on top. This is at the front of the house and is therefore subject to traffic noise of a residential area - as is the master bedroom upstairs, but the house is double glazed so not very noisy. One single and one double bedroom upstairs. It is fully kitted out with all you will need, including WiFi. Of course you need to bring your own devices and use your own data package if you really want! There is a TV in the lounge. The house is well maintained and all the furniture is comfortable and functional. Not everything matches however! Some guests take exception to this - but this house is what it is. The pictures give an accurate overview of the house and it's contents. Damage has been done to items in the house over the time that I have been running it under Airbnb - and I update items as I see fit/need to due to damage/can afford to. The most damage is to carpets - which unfortunately are not cheap to replace! However, they are still clean and completely functional.
    Harrington is a little village on the edge of Workington. It has it's own little community and a great set of shops for such a small place and a couple of pubs. Asda 10 mins walk one way or 5 mins the other is a post office, convenience store, butchers, green grocers, pharmacy, pie shop and hairdressers. There are a couple of pubs in walking distance and 2 takeaways too. The best place to grab a great pub meal is 10 min walk away at the Brewery House hotel ((SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) it!)
  • Jenny couldn't do enough for us, really helpful host and her place was great. Highly recommend

    Jessica2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication, lovely touches and very nice place.

    Sophie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny’s place was very easy to get to, near plenty of amenities and attractions. The house was neat and clean. There were also a few board games that my family and I get to enjoy in the evening, we especially love those. Jenny left lots of leaflets and a set of instructions so that we are equipped for our stay. You can also see the ocean around the house, definitely worth visiting!

    Nur Ammar Nina2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A comfortable stay at Jenny's place. Thank you.

    Sarah2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Jenny is very helpful and the house is as described.

    Clare2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at jennys place for 1 night was fantastic. A self Check in was exactly what i was after and it was on offer due to a long drive. Really nice house,big rooms, felt homely. Everything i needed was their. Communication was spot on . And the location was great for climbing scaffell pike. and the bed was really comfy!! Thank you for letting me stay here

    Andrew2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and tidy!

    Sergiu2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is our 2nd stay here and the accommodation has certainly improved. We had a great stay, ideal location as visiting family in Workington. Even though it’s on the west coast all the sites of the Lakes are close at hand - and there are some lovely walks along the coast which is very close. Would certainly stay again when visiting family in Workington. Thanks Jenny

    The Croft is a beautiful cottage in the heart of town, overlooking the river and a short walk from the shops, pubs, restaurants and other amenities. It is a luxurious, well equipped base from which to explore the Lake District. We welcome all visitors, their children and pets.
    The cottage has been equipped to provide everything you need for a comfortable home from home including Wi-Fi, TV, books of local interest, hairdryer, dog bed and bowls, travel cot and high chair.
    Cockermouth is the birthplace of William Wordsworth and his house, now run by the National Trust, is nearby. The cottage has lovely views over the River Cocker and Church to the rear. It overlooks the Bowling Green at the front. You can take a pleasant stroll along the river to Harris Park, a great place to walk the dog! The nearest supermarket is 200m away and there are many pubs selling Real Ale in the locality. Try a pint of Jennings, brewed in the town, it is highly recommended. The beautiful lakes of Buttermere, Crummock Water, Loweswater and Bassenthwaite are all just a short drive away, as is the Solway Coast.
  • Kim's place is ideal for a weekend away or longer I will be staying there again

    Bailey2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely river view and central location. Host was really helpful suggesting local pubs for dinner.

    Megan2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed at Kim’s place over new year with 2 other couples. It comfortably fitted 6 people and our little dog. The house was immaculately clean and well equipped with anything you could ever need. 2 parking spaces where also a great bonus. Only a stones throw from the High street with fantastic views over looking the river. I Highly recommend the place.

    Tony2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely little home in the centre of Cockermouth. Loads of amenities, really handy if you’ve forgotten something! Clean and cosy.

    NEW LISTING JANUARY 2018 Charming barn converted cottage dating from 1700. It is based near the quiet part of West Cumbria's Lake District. A great place for couples and we always welcome your pet. The cottage also has two step down access to a pretty patio garden with pond. The garden is shared and is quite large.
    The downstairs living/kitchen/dining area is light and airy. It has patio doors onto the patio area. The bedroom is spacious. The bathroom contains a shower unit and separate bath. There is a beautiful patchwork couch which folds out to a third bed suitable for a third person in the longe area.
    Our village is located 2 miles from the pretty market town of Cockermouth with a variety of shops and restaurants. This is a great place to explore the lakes of Loweswater, Crummock, and Buttermere as well as the coast and northern fells.
  • A lovely cottage nestled perfectly for amenities in Cockermouth (of which there are lots - including shops and cultural bits and bobs), as well as a base for exploring the lakes. Although the weather was horrible (thanks Storm Dennis!) the cottage provided a lovely, warm, character filled stay to return home to each night. We have stayed in lots of places in Cumbria, this was a really lovely place and excellent value for money.

    Kris2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely stay! Will definitely be coming back!

    Alex2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • A great base to explore some excellent walks and close to the supermarkets in Cockermouth. The cottage provided everything we required and was a cosy place to return to at the end of our walks. It catered well for our pet Labrador and the suggestions for local walks were useful for the first and last walks of the day. It is definitely a place we would return to.

    Karen2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Have stayed previously and never disappoints. Great for exploring the lakes

    Matthew2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

    Michaela2020-01-06T00:00:00Z

    If you are looking to get away from it all, and enjoy some amazing views and peace and quiet, then look no further. Set in its own little corner on our 300 acre farm, the hut enjoys spectacular views from the sun rising over the fells to it setting in the Solway coast. The lack of light pollution makes it an excellent place for stargazing. Don’t let the colder months put you off, with warm fleecy bedding, and log burner, you’ll be super cosy
    The hut is very simplistic; think olden days (with a present day twist). It has a comfy double bed, a table and stools for meals looking out at the fells, and a lovely wood burner for those chilly, winter evenings. A short walk across the field will bring you to our newly renovated shower block. Aptly named “The Wash House”, in olden days it was used as a place to wash the milk and butter churns, and do the laundry. Today it has toasty under floor heating, a nice hot electric shower and changing area, a sink and a washing machine, and drying racks for those waterproofs to dry out on overnight. An iron, ironing board and hair dryer are provided to get ready for a good night out in the local towns, or pubs and restaurants . Towels can be provided, or you may wish to bring your own. There is also a separate door leading into the toilet, with an additional sink. An outside tap allows you to wash off muddy gear before hanging it to dry. The hut sits in its own little fenced off area, with an outside bistro set, mains water tap, and fire basket. Perfect for sunset dining, or roasting marshmallows under the stars. Going inside the hut, you will find it cosy and well equipped with everything you should need during your stay. There's a camping stove, pans, plates, cups, glasses, cutlery, all important corkscrew and bedding is provided. There are lights and a charging station for phones and ipads which are run by the solar panel. In case of rainy nights, there is a camping toilet under the bed for convenience. Just bring your clothes and food (and wellies!)
    Situated on the outskirts of the quiet, picturesque, farming village of Branthwaite. Ideally located for exploring the coast and the lakes, and within a 30 minute drive radius are the towns of Whitehaven, Workington, Maryport, Cockermouth and Keswick, lakes, fells, forests and the beach! The Wild Duck pub is a 20 minute stroll away from the hut (or a two minute drive) or the equally lovely Royal Yew pub in Dean is just over a mile away.
  • The perfect cozy weekend getaway, even in the middle of storm Dennis. Would definitely recommend!

    Will2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely welcome and a lovely place. Clean and tidy with everything you need. Views are amazing and you would get great sunsets. Couldn’t stay long due to storm Denis but a braver person may be able to stick it out! In normal weather eg not gale force winds, this would be a fantastic place.

    James2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay, the hut was super cosy. It was the perfect escape. You had everything you needed for a great adventure.

    Alicia2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely relaxing time in the hut, the setting was a perfect way to escape from our busy working life. Lighting the log burner on a cold wet night was a highlight. The attention to detail is amazing with everything you need plus those little extras. Our dog Paddy loved exploring the fields and we enjoyed a lovely meal at the local pub - The Yew, the food was fabulous. I will be recommending to all my friends and family and plan to return in the spring. Thank you for having us.

    Holly2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • A really lovely little place to stay! We certainly weren't blessed with good weather, but what better than a cosy cabin with a roaring wood-burner on a cold night? Thank you for a lovely stay.

    Adrian2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • A unique experience in the heart of the Lake District! Fantastic use of space, with all the finishing touches. We were really impressed with the personal touches - from hot water bottles, to candles, to cookies & wine! Thanks Beckie for a wonderful trip.

    Sophie2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a beautiful hut, charming and cosy with a romantic backdrop. Everything provided for the perfect stay in this bijou little hut. Highly recommended and we are returning soon!

    Erica2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely perfect!! Beckie is SO lovely!! The communication before and during our stay was great and Beckie is such a lovely Host. I booked the hut for my boyfriends birthday and Beckie was kind enough to sort a birthday banner out and lovely touches were found throughout our stay. Spotless everywhere, the hut was absolutely perfect, arriving in darkness we enjoyed the short walk to the hut to find cosy candles on. In the morning the view was incredible. We wanted to book another night but our pup hurt his foot out on a walk so we decided not to but we will DEFO be back. Thank you so much for a lovely stay xxx

    Masons Farm is a smallholding, close to Keswick, Cockermouth and the Western Lake District. The barn is recently converted, with original beams and big, light rooms, underfloor heating and a woodburning stove. You will have your own access, separate kitchen with dishwasher and washing machine, and bathroom with both walk-in shower and bath. It's all on one floor, with wide doorways, so could be used with a wheelchair. The perfect place for couples, C2C cyclists and business travellers.
    Little Clifton is a small village just off the A66, 12 minutes drive from Cockermouth and 25 minutes from the centre of Keswick, towns where you will find shops, pubs, restaurants, supermarkets etc; the nearest mainline rail stations are Carlisle and Penrith. We are perfectly placed for exploring the Northern and Western Lake District, and the Solway coast, whilst the central fells and tourist towns of the South Lakes can be reached within the hour. No fewer than four of the top ten walks in ITV's Britians FavouriteWalks series are easily reached from here - Hellvellyn, Cat Bells, Buttermere and Scafell Pike - together with many others of equal beauty and interest.
  • Fantastic place to stay, very close to the lakes. The barn was beautiful with everything you could need. It was clean, spacious and cosy with a lovely host - Sue put the wood burner on for our arrival and even left us some eggs from her chickens! Much appreciated - we hope we’ll be back!

    Ella2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful accommodation, very clean with everything we needed, plus Sue provided lots of extras we weren't expecting.. great location rural outside Cockermouth.. highly recommend.

    Sheena2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend! This place is even lovelier in the flesh and there were so many thoughtful touches throughout. Sparkling clean and Kieth and Sue were so welcoming. This was our first stay here but we would definitely go back!

    Rachel2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Well equipped, homely, Immaculately clean and tidy... the wood burning stove gives us a feeling of arriving home ... and this is our only second visit ! Storm Dennis did it’s worse but staying indoors was delightful ... we’ll be back ..... x

    Lindsy2020-02-07T00:00:00Z

    Caitlin2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sue and Keith were lovely and welcoming. Their place is amazing, especially the log burner which was a lovely touch on a wet December weekend. The location was nice and quiet so you do need a car to get around. Restaurants and pubs need to be booked in advance on weekends, even in the winter. Sue’s place is a lovely retreat if you’re looking for a break from city life.

    Hayley2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • I think this is the 5th time we have stayed at Masons Farm. Superb, highly recommend.

    Explore the West Lakes, Fells and coast and stay in our old coal miner's cottage. Your sunny bedroom is up the steep stairs, tucked under the eaves with a view over the slate roofs towards the Lake District Fells. All ingredients provided for a help-yourself breakfast. C2C cyclists- space for bikes. Safe parking for motorbikes. Good Bus service.
    Canary Cottage is one of a short row of coal miners' cottages dating from the mid 1800's when Great Clifton was a colliery. The cobbled lane outside used to be the main way through from the fields to the farm yard for the cows. The lane now leads onto the village playing field with views over pasture and woods towards the sea. Your bedroom has free wifi and you are welcome to make drinks whenever you like in the kitchen. We do not have a TV but you are welcome to borrow from our many books if you want to spend time alone quietly.
    Between mountains and coast Great Clifton is an ideal place from which to explore The Lake District National Park - only 6 miles away. The charming market towns of Cockermouth (Wordsworth House) and Keswick (market Saturday and Thursday)are easily accessible and Bassenthwaite Lake, Borrowdale and Skiddaw have walks and wildlife in abundance. The less well known coastline features historic ports and wild beaches stretching North to the Solway Firth. Or you could just take a ramble from the front door down to the peaceful banks of the River Derwent.
  • Awesome

    Pete2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • You will not find anywhere better in the area. A wonderful host asks beautiful location.

    Jonathan2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Bar's place is a pleasure within itself. Spending a week working away, each night I was delighted to be retreating to this cosy home. Bar makes you feel very welcome, allowing you to cook in her kitchen & use all her homely amenities. Bar is also a fascinating conversationalist for those wishing to learn more about the Lake District. Thank you Bar, for giving me a home away from home :)

    Lewis2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara is very friendly. Very good communication. I hope to visit your house again;-)

    Libor2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Bar is a warm and wonderful host. She's a sweetheart. She made some very thoughtful gestures which we would not expect from even close ones! The room is as described, very clean and cozy. My wife and I had a very peaceful stay and would love to come again. Thank you so much for everything Barbara! We'll miss you...

    Swaraj2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Sadly, I never met Barbara or stayed in her place as my wife had an accident & had to fly back to Canada.

    Dave2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara is a fantastic, kindhearted and thoughtful host who made us feel welcome immediately. The room, bathroom and kitchen had everything we needed, and we had some lovely conversations over dinner. Her place is a bit outside of the Lake District, but it is quite easy to reach by car and public transport. We can only recommend Barnara's place!!

    Anna-Lena2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara's instructions to her house were very good. (You have to ignore GPS, though.) She is very interesting to talk to and willing to help out.

    The cottage is over 150 years old with walls 2 foot thick but has a very modern walk-in shower room and up to date kitchen. It is spacious, warm and homely - a veritable home away from home. All the basics that you may need are provided, including kitchen equipment, bedding, towels, soap, heating, lighting and power. There is a patio garden area to the rear of the cottage and off-street parking is available to the front.
    Once you book the use of the cottage is yours. It is a cottage with character....on 2 floors but with small stairs leading here and there. There is a cosy, homely feeling. With thick walls it is cool in the summer and warm in winter, although guest-controllable central heating in winter adds to the cosines.
    The cottage is in the centre of the village with 2 pubs, a post office and general store and a small bakery and general store, all in easy walking distance. The pubs generally only open towards the end of the week and weekends and are drinking establishments- not for food and meals. The nearest place for meals is the Broughton Craggs Hotel or the short drive to Cockermouth, which is full of a variety of pubs, restaurants and take-aways.
  • Great location and lots of thoughtful touches!

  • Sue’s place is nice and clean, all you could ask for in a holiday rental. Sue herself is a great host, she set up the cot for our baby and decorated the house for Christmas, which we really loved.

    Florina2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Sue’s place is definitely the definition of home away from home! It was comfortable, spacious, great for relaxation and also conveniently located for day trips all over the Lake District. I notice how many of her guests have returned many times. I can certainly understand why.

    Melissa2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a lovely oasis away from home. The cottage was sparkling clean and sue was a pleasure when we met her. Loved the little touches that were left.

    Holly2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • We were out a lot so we never got to meet Sue, but that just shows how easy it was to access and enjoy the home without help!

    Charity2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect, I highly recommend this place, Sue is a great host.

    Francois2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • Sues place is clean and spacious! She provides enough utensils in the kitchen to satisfy every cook. We had a lovely stay. I would highly recommend Staying with Sue your next visit to the Lake District! Great location.

  • Great host and a great property. Was one of the best Airbnb stay so far. Would recommend anybody.

    Kiran2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful place. The house is so thoughtfully presented with everything you might need from towels, bedding, dishwasher/washing machine tabs, toiletries, toilet rolls, breakfast items, you can literally just rock up with your clothes bag. The cleanliness of the house is outstanding and the decor throughout makes this such a comfortable stay as if you were in Vivs home. Viv also couldn't be more helpful, making sure you're settled in and need anything. The home is spacious too with more than enough space for the 4 of us. A great stay in a great location in our best air bnb yet!

    Steph2020-01-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a truly lovely stay at the Quiet House, the property is very comfortable and cozy in a great location with nice views it's a perfect place to relax after long day of hiking. Vivien is a superb host who have gone out of her way to make us feel at home with the thoughtful touches around the house, breakfast essentials and a bottle of bubbly which was an unexpected bonus. The location and communication was fantastic, there's a parking space for 2 cars which was ideal for our party of 4. Overall we had a very enjoyable time at the Quiet House and would definitely return

    Anna Róża2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Vivien's house in Broughton is spotless. The house had all the amenities you could ask for and more. The house is positioned well for the Lake District or the coast and comes with a small drive outside for a car. Vivien was a great host and her attention to detail is second to none. When we arrived there was everything needed for breakfast and shampoo in the bathrooms. Her responses were quick and all in all, I'd thoroughly recommend staying if you're ever in Cumbria.

    Neil2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent base for exploring the Lakes. Lovely house, very quiet, comfy bed and good selection of breakfast supplied. Vivien was quick to reply to our messages.

    Neil2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant, Vivien is an excellent host. I booked on behalf of my colleagues working in the area and they couldn't fault the property at all. Excellent *****

    Lynsey2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • I can recommend Vivien’s place to anyone, it’s pretty much perfect, good location, parking, spotlessly clean and well decorated, comfortable beds, fast WiFi, everything you need! Thanks for having us!

  • Great location, town centre, everything on your doorstep. Central to numerous local walks. Highly recommend for walkers and dogs !

    Jason2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely lovely place in the heart of Cockermouth! There was enough room for the three of us to feel comfortable, as well as our small dog! Siobhan is a brilliant host, all communication was brilliant from start to finish and she offered suggestions for places to eat etc. Sainsburys/Lidl, pubs, bars and cafes all close by. The only problem we found was finding places that would allow us in with our dog, although Veeva allowed dogs on a Saturday and Sunday they said. ‘The Bitter End’ pub allows dogs and was a great place for food and a craft ale. We had a really lovely stay and felt at home, there was everything we needed in the flat. We were all just disappointed to only be staying for the one night! Would highly recommend this accomodation and would definitely like to return in future but for longer next time! Many thanks! :-)

    Come and stay in our old coal miner's cottage. Your sunny bedroom is up the steep stairs, tucked under the eaves with a view over the slate roofs towards the Lake District Fells. All ingredients provided for a full help yourself breakfast. C2C cyclists - space for bikes. Safe parking for motorbikes.
    Canary Cottage is one of a short row of coal miners' cottages dating from the mid 1800's when Great Clifton was a colliery. The cobbled lane outside used to be the main way through from the fields to the farm yard for the cows. The lane now leads onto the village playing field with views over pasture and woods towards the sea. Your bedroom has free wifi and you are welcome to make drinks whenever you want downstairs. We do not have a TV but you are welcome to borrow from our many books if you want to spend time alone quietly.
    Nearby - Fantastic scenery, coastal walks, historic houses, industrial heritage, C to C cycle. Set between mountains and coast the village of Great Clifton is an ideal place from which to explore everything! The Lake District National Park is only 6 miles away, and the sea side 4 miles. The charming market towns of Cockermouth (Wordsworth's birthplace) and Keswick (markets Thursday and Saturday) are easily accessible. The Northern Fells, Bassenthwaite Lake, Wild Ennerdale, Borrowdale and Skiddaw have walks and wildlife in abundance and more sheep than people. Whinlatter Forest has breathtaking mountain bike routes. The less well known coastline features historic ports of Workington, Whitehaven, (Rum Story) Maryport (Roman garrison) and wild beaches stretching North to the Solway Firth (winter waders). Nearby attractions include Maryport Aquarium, Wordsworth House NT, Lakes Distillery, Jennings Beer, Honister Slate Mine, Florence Coal Mine, and the Wool Clip at Caldbeck, Or you could just take a ramble from the front door down to the peaceful banks and footbridge over the River Derwent.

  • Barbara is such a lovely and warm-hearted host that I don’t even want to say goodbye to her. I told her that she didn’t just offer me a place to stay, she actually offered me a sweet home, with her humming cheerfully over doing things and those lovely talks we had over dinner. She has a caring heart and a generous soul, she treats the visitors as her family. She loves nature and people. I feel so lucky to stay at her place and become friend with her. She is the best.

    Sunset view is close to great views, restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities, the beach, and nightlife. You’ll love Sunset view because of the kitchen, the cosiness, the high ceilings, the views, and the location. Our house is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with children ), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
    The home has a great feel about it and you’ll love relaxing in the evenings after a days hiking or working. We have fibre broadband so you can keep in touch and freesat on the tv with lots of channels available. The bathroom has been recently renovated and you’ll love the rainfall shower or just relax in the large bath!
    Close by is the Aroma cafe, open all day selling food to a very high standard. We have a local fish n chip shop and within 10 minute walk the Crown spice Indian restaurant. The local pub is the Swann which is always welcoming and everyone will say hello and make you feel at home.
  • We had an emergency situation and Steve came to the rescue. Since our last visit he had put in a new bathroom, and we were the first to use it. Sparkling clean and modern facilities. Plenty of space, good facilities for laundry and cooking etc, cosy sitting room and comfy beds. Thanks Steve as usual it took the strain off the visit.

    Gorgeous small double bedroom in terraced house near the centre of Cockermouth. Easy walking distance to bars, restaurants and shops, free street parking, and on the right side of town for quick access to Keswick and the fells! A warm welcome, and a true home from home.
    I bought this house last March, and since then have been really happy here - the place just has that really welcoming feel to it, the way some houses do. And my aim is to ensure that my guests feel relaxed and at home here too. The room isn't a hotel room - it's something better. If you are looking for a lovely cosy space, a comfy bed, a warm welcome, a powerful shower to wake you up, and a relaxing atmosphere, then my space will suit you very well! The room is fairly small, but comfortable and stylish, and there is both hanging space and storage in a chest of drawers. There is a smart TV in the room, with access to live TV, Netflix, BBC I-Player, All4 etc. The bed is of the modern platform kind, with a mattress on a low slatted base, and I use a memory foam mattress cover for your comfort. There is a blackout blind to help ensure a good night's sleep, and the house is very quiet and peaceful, with views of green space and the church spire from the bedroom window. I'm a freelance writer and artist, which means that there is a lot of art hung up around the house, and lots of books which you are welcome to dip into. I'm also a keen fellrunner, hillwalker, cyclist and swimmer, and am currently training for my Mountain Leader qualification so that I can take guests out on the fells, and I'm really happy to help out with ideas for routes or activities.
    The house is in a very quiet cul de sac, and many guests have commented on how peaceful it is, and how pleasant and green the view is from the bedroom window. The house is just off the road towards Keswick, which is a twenty minute drive away. The coast is also only twenty minutes away, and has superb views across the Solway Firth to Scotland, and a sunset to die for! The nearest beach is Allonby, and slightly further afield, there is a superb coastal cliff walk from St Bees to Whitehaven. I love the outdoors, and am a keen fellrunner, hillwalker, cyclist, swimmer, and I know the Lake District and wider Cumbria very well, so please feel free to ask for recommendations. There are also a lovely range of walks and other things to do around Cockermouth itself, and I'm happy to help with ideas for both sunny and rainy day activities! The house is both very central, and also within a few minutes' walk of the start of a walk up the main local hill - the Hay - which has fantastic views of the Lakeland fells. Cockermouth itself is a fantastic small town, with lots of independent shops, cafes, real ale pubs, restaurants...Wordsworth House is in Cockermouth, and provides a fascinating insight into how William and Dorothy Wordsworth grew up, and there are also a number of small art galleries and vintage / antique shops. There is a Sainsburys, a Lidl, an Aldi and a Co-op for supplies, plus lots of independent shops (bakers, butchers, grocers, delis etc). The Kirkgate Arts Centre is thriving, and puts on a mix of theatre, music and films. Yet despite a good amount of tourism, the town also feels very 'lived in', in contrast to Keswick and many of the towns within the actual National Park. In other words, in my own biased view, it's the perfect place to both live and visit!
  • Lucy’s space was amazing! Very good communication, and was so convenient being so close to the bus route. Was the perfect place to stay when exploring the Lake District!

    Delaney2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • We had a great stay at Mat's cottage. It was a surprisingly spacious and quirky place to stay, in a brilliant location. Our 4-year-old loved staying in the 'treehouse bed', which she could climb up to through a secret trap-door! Mat was a brilliant host, just next door in his shop, and answered all questions we had. There was even milk and cereal for the morning. The next time we're staying in Cockermouth, Mat's cottage will be our first choice. Thanks!

    Kirsti2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful little cottage which is in the centre of town (which is lovely) but also tucked away behind the high street. We had a great time there and the kids loved the Jacob's ladder and trap door through to the top bedroom. Mat is a great host: couldn't have been more helpful.

    Simon2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely stay in this quirky cottage. Such interesting upcycled furniture and fab attic room my 7 year old enjoyed making her own. Right in the centre of town but quiet at nice. Dog loved it too!

    Jason2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was very nice and welcoming! The interior of the cottage was very clean and well-decorated. The hosts had left many brochures on the sights to see and walks to take in the Lakes which was helpful in planning our day out. We really appreciated the thoughtful detailing in the cottage. The only difficulty was finding suitable parking in the village but overall we had a very nice stay.

    Fernando2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice, well equipped and comfortable house. As we have a big car we used the on road parking, which is directly opposite the house. There was always plenty of space to park safely and this did not cause any problems. We definitely recommend and hope to stay again.

    Steven2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely beautiful home, tastefully decorated, cosy, warm, welcoming and very comfortable. I would highly recommend a stay here.

    Jo2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! It’s so lovely you will hardly want to leave the house as it has everything you would want and need indoors. I loved it and will definitely be glad to come again.

    Lydia2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Neither 'show home' or 'designer' do Adam's beautiful place justice. A wonderful adaptation of an intriguing old building that is a comfortable, practical, and remarkably stylish gem in an unexpected location. As an airbnb user, it has everything you could need, and much more besides. I can't imagine many people would be willing to share such a home with strangers, yet Adam is a welcoming and relaxed host. Thank you!

    Dan2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

Many lake District attractions, including Jennings Brewery, Wordsworth House, and only 10 minutes directly into the fells and lakes, Keswick is onlyn a 20 minute drive. I have other rooms advertised on here, and also the whole house, so combination of rooms that will sleep, from 1-7 people, message me if you can’t find the listing you might be interested in.
    It is a fairly quiet neighbourhood, with easy access to the town centre, 10-15 min by foot, or a bus runs 40 metres from the house into town, and also to Keswick and surrounding areas. Only a half hour drive to Ambleside and grasmere. Many specialist shops, and excellent restaurants and coffee shops in the town.
  • I very much liked staying at Jane's place. Nice comfy double bed, hot powerful shower. There's a pub over the road that gives generous portions, or it's literally a 15 minute walk into Cockermouth where there's a whole choice of eateries. Very impressed with the "DIY " breakfast as Jane describes it. I didn't really know what to expect as I've always stayed in a conventional guesthouse. The thing with conventional guesthouses is that you're paying for the cooked breakfast, so if you're like me who can't really stomach a full English in the morning, you're paying out money for nothing. At Jane's there was plenty of choice of cereals, bread, jams and spreads plus Greek yoghurt and berries in the fridge. All for a lighter kind of breakfast. It was help yourself and sit down at the kitchen table, and then come and go as you please. Good value for money and a very relaxed atmosphere. I left my own food in the fridge and then made sarnies each morning for my day out on the fells. This also saved me money. All in all, a very good stay at Jane's and if I'm ever in the area again, I would put in a request to stay here once more.

    Matt2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great value plus friendly welcoming host made staying here very easy & enjoyable for us. Thanks Jane.

    Robin2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Jane is a great host, her place is immaculately clean and she provides home comforts and extra treats. It is like home from home. It was our second stay with Jane and will definitely go back. I have often recommended people visiting the area to stay at Jane's. Also extremely good value for money, particularly in that area.

    Maureen2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Jane's place is idea for anyone wanting to explore the Lake District offering excellent value for money. My room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the shower was hot and powerful. The fact breakfast was provided was a real bonus. I would definitely stay here again and highly reccommend it to others.

    Andrew2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Tranquil, beautiful and strategically placed to spend some days visiting Lake District. Jane is a very good host. Highly recommended for everyone.

    Sonia2019-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time staying with Jane and her lovely dog Ozzy! Jane's house is in a good location to see the Northern Lake District. Her house was really comfortable, clean and she made me feel at home. I'd definitely recommend her place to anyone wanting to visit the Lakes!

    Hari2019-03-22T00:00:00Z

    This unique little apartment is a perfect base to explore the western fells from. With fully equipped kitchen and cosy lounge you won’t want to leave.
    Good for one and ideal for two there are pleasant easy walks from the apartment to get you ready to conquer the bigger climbs.
    Eaglesfield is a quiet ancient village two miles from the pretty town of Cockermouth, and the National Park. Access is easy to the A66 for trips to Keswick & Penrith, or alternatively, visit the lovely lakes of Loweswater and Buttermere.
  • Bridget was lovely and very helpful with any initial enquires made prior to booking. She made us and our puppy feel so welcome! The first holiday we have gone on all together and because it was such a great experience it definitely wont be the last. Thank you for such a lovely weekend get away x

    Becca2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely stay - cozy and with everything we needed. Bridget had lots of tips for places to check out in the area.

    Lauren2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely week at Bridget's super annex. The location (just outside Cockermouth) is ideal for exploring the Lake District and the Cumbrian Coast. Classic Lake District destinations are easily within a 30-minute drive and Cockermouth (with excellent shops and eateries) is just a 5-minute drive. As others have noted, we received a very warm welcome with very welcome hot-water bottles in the bed. We'd had a long drive in bad weather and so we were really grateful that checking-in was so easy. The annex has everything a single person or, in our case, a couple might need for a short stay and there is ample room to relax and eat. We had some relatively harsh weather during our stay but the annex remained warm and cosy. It is a very peaceful semi-rural location, with just the sound of the birds and the occasional sheep bleating. Communication was excellent and Bridget was extremely helpful and quick to provide assistance if needed. If you're looking for a base to explore the Lake District from, but want to stay somewhere out of the hustle and bustle of the Lake District hotspots, then this is an ideal place to pick; we think you will have a great stay!

    Korneliusz2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first Airbnb experience and to be honest it was fantastic. A very welcoming host and very thoughtful. Lots of small expressions around the property that clearly showed she cared about the visitor experience. The place was clean, well appointed and lovely and quiet. Thank you Bridget for a fantastic first Airbnb experience!

    Jonathan2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Bridget's place is a perfect get-away to enjoy the Lakes in an idyllic location. Bridget was really flexible with check-in/check-out and was really helpful suggesting local walking routes. The cosy accommodation was kept warm all the time and perfect to retreat to after a long day's walking. Strongly recommend a visit to the place and I hope to visit again in the future!

    The Barn is a beautifully refurbished retreat in a quiet corner of the Lake District National Park. Built in c.1870 as part of How Farm, The Barn is a very comfortable self-contained space which sleeps two adults and two children. It has a small garden, unique open living space incorporating the kitchen and lounge, lobby, shower room and large bedroom. The Barn is in a countryside location yet gives easy access to all the North West Lakes and the lesser known but very scenic West Coast.
    Finished to an extremely high standard, The Barn offers peace and tranquility with every modern convenience and is the ideal base for exploring the West Lakes throughout the changing seasons. The layout is all on one level with an open plan living area which incorporates a well equipped kitchen, large sofa and TV; a shower room; a lobby where there is a washer and dryer; and a large bedroom with a king sized bed and a double sofa bed suitable for two children. There is also a small drying area/space for outdoor gear and a lockable bike store. Though The Barn is the ideal place to recharge your batteries the beautiful market town of Cockermouth is only 3 miles drive away and Keswick is 20 minutes drive away. Both have a good variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and bars. The Barn is well placed to access Buttermere, Crummock Water and Ennerdale, to name just a few of the beautiful local attractions and the stunning West Coast. There are plenty of walking, open water swimming, running and cycling opportunities virtually outside the front door. With its high standards of accommodation and superb location, The Barn is perfect for a couple and their well behaved dog(s) to explore all the delights that the Lake District has to offer, whatever the time of year.
    A very scenic rural area with amazing views across to Scotland on one side and the mountains of the Lake District on the other side.
  • What a beautiful and peaceful setting. Hazel and Mike were fantastic hosts and they have done such a wonderful job renovating the barn. It was such a relaxing and bigger than expected space. Great location for exploring the Lake District too. Would highly recommend this stay to anyone.

    Gordon2020-03-05T00:00:00Z

    Katie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We have just returned from a 2 night stay in this lovely barn. From the pictures when booking I knew the barn was going to be lovely but when we arrived we were blown away by how stunning and spacious the barn was. The decor and attention to detail is amazing and I was a little sad we had only booked for 2 nights. I didn’t want to leave. The views are amazing. The barn had everything we needed to cook our meals in the evening it was a real home from home. It was great for our dog too as it had a little garden area to the rear and a lovely walk right outside. There is a handy tiled entrance hall that was prefect for our dog to dry off and sleep. We will be returning for sure to explore more of the Lake District.

    Sarah2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at the barn! The attention to detail in the renovation was outstanding and it was probably one of the nicest and well appointed Airbnb’s we have stayed in. It was so warm and cosy with everything we needed for a fantastic stay. Hazel was very helpful especially when we had a lost key issue!! We would recommend this place to anyone - it’s truly fabulous!

    Frances2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The barn was a perfect stay for me and my boyfriend. Perfect kitchen amenities for us to cook one evening and extremely cosy living spaces. Everything was spotless and comfortable - couldn’t have asked for anything better for a relaxing weekend away. Thank you again!!

  • What a unbelievably beautiful home to stay in. I can't say enough for how much my girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay at Hazel and Mike's home. It was the perfect getaway, surrounded by such stunning scenery, with every amenity you could need provided by our wonderful hosts. Expectations definitely met, and exceeded, with every home comfort you could ask for. I cannot recommend this property enough. So much so, I hope to one day return for another stay!

    Grey Goat House was built about 1770. In 1900 it was converted into a public house Ye Old Grey Goat Inn which was run by my wife's great uncle.

The flat is located in the Conservation Area of Cockermouth, which is the oldest settlement in this Georgian market town and the property is Grade II listed.
    The Grey Goat House is in the centre of Town close to all the shops, attractions, pubs and coffee shops
    Cockermouth is a Georgian Market Town which is a gem and not as commercial and full of tourist like Keswick. The main attractions are Wordsworth House and Jennings Brewery and the old fashioned coffee shops

    Self contained one bedroomed apartment in a fantastic location. The property is recently renovated and in the rear garden of the hosts family home on a large secure plot with plenty of parking. A stones throw from Cockermouth Castle and just a minutes' walk to the buzzing town centre, cafes, pubs and restaurants as well as a sports centre with gym and pool. Only a 10 minute drive from the world heritage Lake District National Park which has stunning local walks and scenery. Perfect getaway.
    The property is detached and in a great location, only a minutes walk from the town center, where you can have a glass of wine as well as a restaurant or cafe meal. It is a great base for visiting the North Western Lakes via bus or car. We have lots of people choosing to stay with us that are guests at wedding venues in the surrounding countryside or at our Town Hall too! Free parking is available within our private driveway and you can come and go as you please without fear of disturbing anyone. The apartment is well insulated for warmth and noise so you will get a great sleep. Although it is within minutes of the town center it is still nice and peaceful. There is a large shower and separate cosy bedroom as well as an outside dining space if the weather permits! In the open plan living space there is a large comfortable sofa to relax on and TV with DVD player and a few DVDs. The kitchenette has a microwave, gas cooker and hob, table and 2 chairs as well as fridge, crockery and utensils. You can chose to eat in, dine out or possibly prepare a picnic for any hikes you may do whilst visiting the Lakes.
    A quiet residential area next to a sports centre and Cockermouth Castle. The hosts house was originally built to house local police officers but is now privately owned. It is not overlooked and is situated adjacent to Tute Hill which is on a protected conservation site due to its “Motte and bailey” style history.
  • Beautiful, warm and clever (but enough about the host!) Really enjoyed our stay. Everything was clean and the space was really well planned and beautifully finished. Will definitely stay again.

    Lee2020-03-06T00:00:00Z

The central street in Cockermouth is walking distance, and the North Lakes are only a 10-20 min drive. We got to the bottom of Skiddaw in 15 mins. Mandy was a great host. Welcoming, accomodating and helpful whilst also giving us space. I'd definitely come back!

    This is a cosy downstairs basement studio which can sleep 1 or 2 people. There is a light bedroom and sitting area with twin beds and pine furnishing. The bright ensuite shower room has towels and toiletries . There is a kitchenette area well equipped with crockery, cutlery and pans, microwave, small cooker, toaster and sink. If you prefer breakfast to be provided, you can join other guests in the breakfast room upstairs where I cook a delicious full English Breakfast £5 per person.
    The flat was originally the laundry area for the house and has the old copper with fire underneath as a feature of the room. The flat is accessed down some steep stairs through the main house, so not suitable for small children or anyone with limited mobility.
    Cockermouth is an attractive traditional market town and with plenty of independent shops as well as supermarkets. Wordsworth House, where the young William Wordsworth grew up, is run by the National Trust and is 5 minutes walk down the Main Street. There are regular Taste of Cumbria Food Festivals and each June the Woolfest draws many people to the town. Restaurants and cafes provide a great range of cuisines and for coffee and lunches the Wild Zucchini is very friendly and good value.
  • I had a wonderful time staying in the studio room. It had everything I needed for a short break in Cockermouth.

  • Rachel and Eccles are a paragon of the famed Lakeland hospitality. I wish I had a longer visit, I could have stayed in and worked my way through the excellent library.

    Full of character and carrying a 4-Star Self-Catering rating from VisitBritain for several years, The Smithy is a very comfortable conversion of the original blacksmith’s forge, built in the late 19th century.
    Located in the north-west of Cumbria’s Lake District National Park, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Smithy is 3 miles due south of the old market town of Cockermouth. In its position halfway between Cockermouth and Loweswater, it enjoys an environment so quiet that it is rare to hear anything other than the sounds of nature. At night, a myriad of bright stars stand out against its dark skies.
    We chose to live here, on a small lane between Brandlingill and Mosser, because of its quiet location next to Sandy Beck. If you enjoy walking, we are near the western Lakeland fells - Mosser Fell, Smithy Fell, Fellbarrow, Loweswater Fell, Darling Fell and others. There are various local walks from The Smithy, taking you to the Lorton valley, Loweswater and to Cockermouth, following the river path.
  • The Old Smithy is an extremely well looked after cottage amply suited to our needs (me and my wife and father). It was scrupulously clean and pretty much exactly as described. It's in a marvelous location with very easy access to Buttermere and the Western Lakes. Excellent value - couldn't recommend this place too highly.

  • The Smithy is a lovely conversation and warm too despite being a stone building. Good off road parking and quick access to main roads.
