Overview
Holiday Rental House -
9 Bedrooms , 8 Bathrooms , Sleeps 20
Cockermouth, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Southwaite Green is in an area of peace and tranquility in the Lorton Vale, almost mid-way between Cockermouth and Lorton both 2 miles away, Keswick is 9 miles to the east. Within a short drive are the quieter western lakes Crummock, Loweswater, Buttermere and Ennerdale, winner of Britain's Best View. There are ample walking and cycling opportunities from the door and a wealth of shops and restaurants can be found in both Cockermouth and Keswick.

The properties sit on Paddle Beck giving a peaceful ambience together with 10 acres of grounds including newly planted woodland, wildlife meadow, pond and arboretum. Consequently there is an abundance of wildlife including deer, foxes, barn owls, red squirrels, badgers and the occasional kingfisher that visits the beck.

Southwaite Green consists of four cottages that were developed by the o...

We had a great time as a party of 20 people in the 4 cottages. They were very comfortable and warm. The cottages were in a great location.

About the neighbourhood
The lakes Buttermere, Crummock and Loweswater are very close, Loweswater a nice walk, with Keswick and Borrowdale a short drive away over the Whinlatter pass. Hiking, climbing and other outdoor pursuits are very popular, with many walks made famous by the Wainwright series of guidebooks. The C2C bike route passes close to the cottage, so bring your bikes or hire them in Cockermouth, but be prepared for hills.

Cockermouth is one of the few towns in the Lakes that retain its traditional look and feel, with individual independent shops on the tree-lined main street giving the town great character. There is also a farmers' market in the market square the first Saturday of each month.
