It is just over a year since we stayed here and there are new proprietors. The high standards have been maintained! Reason for stay was to go to the "Quince & Medlar" restaurant for a meal and it is too far to drive home afterwards. It makes an excellent combination as the restaurant is immediately across the road. Did not...

Lovely bedroom, huge comfortable bed. Bathroom was impeccable. Breakfast was great. Hosts are really welcoming. Can't fault this great guesthouse which is a minutes walk from town. Parking is at the leisure centre round the corner for which you get a pass. Superb !!!

Delightful building, delightful room, delightful breakfast, delightful owner. Great night's sleep in an extremely comfortable bed. Impeccably clean. Free parking pass for the nearby (approx 150m) leisure centre was provided which was available until the our end of our visit to the area. Would highly recommend... and we'll be back for sure.

From my first contact to waving goodbye, full marks. Sam and Matt have a lot of hospitality experience previously to owning Six Castlegate, and it shines through. A lovely welcome and my bike stored securely in the bowels of a tremendous building rich in character. I had a excellent good sized room which was warm and immaculately clean with views...

I've stayed at Six Castlegate twice now, and both times the accommodation has been flawless, the breakfasts delicious and the hosts incredibly friendly and helpful. The building itself is a stunning house in the delightful town of Cockermouth. All in all, a wonderful place to stay, and I hope to return for a third visit.

Excellent B&B all round. Beautifully decorated with superb styling and extremely clean all over. Lovely room with a very comfortable bed, great bathroom and all of the facilities you would expect....oh, and biscuits, cookies and hot chocolate! Breakfast was one of the best I have ever had served quickly and politely. Hosts were available enough but also discrete. I would...

After our visit to Sixcastelgate, my first thoughts were that I didn't really want to review this property on line as it may only encourage more people to go - therefore putting at jeapordy our chances of rebooking at a future date. However, I have relented and now want to share this excellent B&B with the rest of the world....
