Great walking and cycling country and close to stunning beaches. Character cottage newly renovated in 2016 with private garden. A welcome pack of home made and local produce is included. Well behaved dogs welcome! Close to village pubs (approx 1 mile away) . Fishing nearby and Arkleby leisure pool with sauna and hot tub 1 minute away. Approx 6 miles from Cockermouth. Home deliveries are possible from the Sainsburys in Cockermouth or Iceland, Asda or Tesco branches in Workington. This cottage will appeal to those wanting a peaceful holiday in the country. This is an area which is relatively undiscovered so you will not encounter the high numbers of tourists found in some of the Lake District hotspots. A car is essential, but within easy driving distance, is the wonderful scenery of the north lakes (our nearest lake is Bassenthwaite) and within approx 20 minutes drive you have Ullswater, Crummock Water and Buttermere. The towns of Cockermouth and Keswick and the City of Carlisle are all within easy driving distance. We are about 10 minutes drive to the beautiful but deserted Solway coast.The cottage has a lounge/diner (15'6' X 11'6') ,with Log Burner and the addition of a 'Smart' LG TV,for Netflix and the like, Free Wifi is available. A well equipped kitchen (7'6' X 8' ) and fully tiled shower room with enclosed newly fitted double shower, WC and hand basin (9' X 3'9') all on the ground floor. A generous sized bedroom (15'6' X 12'6') with beamed ceiling and exposed stone wall upstairs. As this is a traditional rural cottage we have furnished it in a traditional way. The stairs are VERY steep, as space is limited in this 1748 built cottage, so is NOT suitable for people with mobility difficulties . There is a lawned private garden to the front with lovely views and a secluded dog proof rear area, also with good views! We are happy to consider breaks from 2 nights upwards and are very flexible regarding changeover days. The cottage adjoins our house and you can be assured of a warm welcome on arrival and total privacy and seclusion during your stay.More

About the neighbourhood
Our nearest main town is Cockermouth about six miles away. Here in this very attractive town (the birthplace of William Wordsworth) you will find a wide variety of independent shops,pubs and restaurants together with three supermarkets. Jennings Brewery is in Cockermouth and a trip around the brewery is a must as is a visit to the Wordsworth Museum. Our nearest villages are Gilcrux (where there is a pub(serving food),bistro,church, post office and village hall) and Parsonby (where there is a church.) Both villages are within easy walking distance. Trout fishing is available at Gilcrux Trout Fisheries. At the bottom of our lane (about 1 min in the car) is Arkleby Leisure Pool - a fantastic heated large indoor pool and also a sauna and hot tub. This facility can be booked in advance by...
