If you value decor over a quiet night's sleep, then this is the place for you. It can not be faulted for it's contemporary look and feel, however, steer clear of the rooms on the second floor. As this is a house, and not a hotel, it can be noisy when the people upstairs are walking around! A sign in our room asked us to turn off the bathroom light when not in use, as the fan disturbs the people above...I think they need to think about how the people above disturbed us! The wooden floors are a great touch, but are not the best for sound-proofing! Definately the best place to stay in Cockermouth. As the main high street can get a bit rowdy on Friday and Saturday nights, it is a god-send when you can retire to your room down a quiet back street! Don't think you can escape the noise totally though, when people are walking past your room singing after a good night out, at 3:00am! The only other down-side to this otherwise fantastic place, is that the breakfast (although lovely) is only served until 9:00am on a Sunday morning! I really would've liked a bit more of a lie-in...:(
Other than those two minor points, I would definately recommend Croft House.
