Six Castlegate is a distinctive, pink coloured house half way up the short hill. There is no parking, but we parked in the Bitterbeck public car park which is only about 100 yards away and a 24 hour ticket costs a very reasonable £6.20. The house is large, impressive and very attractive and on arrival Samantha made us feel most welcome. Our room, Melbreak, was spacious, well appointed, nicely decorated and furnished, and very comfortable. The en-suite was similarly smart and featured a bath with an integrated shower that featured a rather unique triple shower head. I’ve never seen one of those before - but it certainly delivers a fabulous shower. Breakfast was taken in a charming dining room and it was excellent. On the first morning we had a starter of natural yoghurt with fruit coulis topped with granola followed by a Cumbrian breakfast that consisted of excellent, local ingredients which were perfectly cooked and nicely presented. On subsequent mornings we had different choices and my wife declared her smoked salmon and scrambled eggs to be top class. I also sampled the scrambled eggs and had to commend Mathew for his ability to cook scrambled eggs perfectly. These were gently folded and not overly cooked eggs, and absolutely delicious. As far as B&B customers are concerned however, the sad news is that Samantha and Matthew are giving this part of their business up from the end of May, and are changing to complete house rental. As this is a very large house with seven bedrooms, it is beyond what Karen and I will ever need, so our first visit is likely to be our last, but we certainly wish Sam and Mathew all the best with the new venture.…
Everything about this B & B is amazing. The building itself, the decor, the rooms, the cleanliness, the hosting, the breakfast..all of it. I loved every second and was gutted not to be staying longer. I’ll definitely be back. I’m still stunned that I was the only guest staying. Nothing was too much trouble for the hosts. They’d put me in their best room but as I wanted a bath, I asked to be moved and they couldn’t have been nicer. I was in a king room with a fabulously comfy bed, the softest bedding, it was like sleeping on a cloud! Huge cooked breakfast, piping hot, to set me up for a day’s walking. Just in case you aren’t sure I love this place! Already looking forward to a return visit.
This is a very special place to stay. I felt immediately welcome and at home in this lovely old house, which has been decorated simply and beautifully with many lovely touches. Samantha and Mathew are warm and friendly and incredibly helpful. I was in a large room at the top of the house, with two big windows and lovely views over the rooftops to the hills beyond. The bed was huge and very comfortable and there was a good sized television and comfy chair. Breakfast was first rate, with lots of choice! Cockermouth is a nice town, with plenty of places to eat, shops, Wordsworth's house, river, and easy access to the Western and Northern Lakes, as well as the coast. As a lone traveller, the ambience of where you stay is especially important, and this really felt like home.
Had a wonderful weekend here. Our hosts were so friendly and helpful. Had the best poached egg with my breakfast. So much so I had it the day after too and it didn’t disappoint. Lovely place. In such a beautiful position. Cannot fault anything at all. Will definitely be back. Thank you.
An absolute gem of a find. The hosts are fabulous, the accommodation was beautiful and perfectly situated to explore the entire West Lakes area. Cockermouth has the perfect selection of little bars, restaurants and shops. The car parking is a bonus too. We stayed in the super king room Blencathra, an extremely spacious and bright room spotlessly clean and real sanctuary to return home to at the end of each day. Breakfast was cooked using the best Cumbrian produce and set us up for the day. We will return for sure. Thank you for an amazing Bank Holiday weekend away xxx
Six Castlegate is a lovely B&B in such an interesting house. We have been two times now and particularly appreciate the extremely kind and friendly welcome we have received on both occasions, nothing is too much trouble for Samantha and Matthew. We could have happily chatted for hours! Our room was very clean and well appointed - a nice touch was to find that the toiletries are locally made. Cockermouth is well worth visiting as a relaxing town in the Lakes without the crowds.
This place was an utter revelation. Mat and Sam were the friendliest hosts imaginable, giving us local tips and excellent service. The house is beautifully done, our room was airy, nicely decorated and spotlessly clean. Excellent breakfast each day. Location wise, you don't get much more central. Having a pass for a nearby car park 30 seconds walk away was hugely useful given that parking in town is really hard otherwise. Can't fault our stay and would love to come back.
Samantha and Mathew really try to make your stay a lovely experience. Six Castlegate is a lovely old house which has been tactfully maintained to preserve its character. The rooms are very clean with good en-suite facilities. Although there are no car parking space, we didn't find it a problem at all, since the owners had purchased parking permits at a car park just 2 minutes walk away. Cockermouth is a lovely small town which has kept its character and since Six Castlegate is so well located, we could enjoy a walk around town without using the car. There are plenty of places to eat out, to suit all pockets. But we found it advantageous to book in advance, since these soon become fully booked. We would definitely recommend this B&B and we will certainly visit again.
Recently returned from a relaxing stay in Six Castlegate, Cockermouth. Beautifully appointed bedroom, elegant building, perfect location for exploring and friendly, helpful hosts. As a vegan I was also offered a vegan breakfast with coconut milk and the best coffee ever!!! Very helpful advice when it comes to eating out and local walks. Keep up the great work guys and thank you for a wonder stay. I would definitely return.
We loved it here. Beautifully clean, exceptional breakfast, very knowledgeable about the area and places worth going to, helped carry our bags which was appreciated, lovely couple…Thankyou for a great stay and for looking after us so well.
