A nice welcome to a very nice B&B. I would recommend it without hesitation. Spent 2 nights here and enjoyed every minute. The host was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the beds were very comfortable. The breakfast was superb and set you up for the day. All in all I could not have asked for... More

From the moment Alan helped us to our room with our bags, to the fabulous breakfast, to all the small acts of hospitality, to the best bedroom I've ever stayed in -double door entrance, how exciting is that!- to the local advice, this was like a 4 star hotel. Many many thanks for the lovely stay Alan and Angela, your... More

Went to the UK to have a 50th Wedding Anniversary Adventure and track family history in Cockermouth (as well as other locations) and were fortunate to book our overnight stay at Six Castlegate. All the rooms, with one exception, are named after mountains in the area. We stayed in Blencathra - a lovely, spacious room with en suite. Our host... More

Visiting my home town we decided to book Six Castlegate as it is in the centre of town. Warm welcome, fantastic Georgian home, surprisingly spacious room & a wonderful hearty breakfast. The decor, service & attention to detail was fantastic. What more could you ask for.

A really friendly & welcoming place to stay. Stayed in Blencathra, a spacious room with a giant bed that made getting up a struggle, but with a nice on-suite. Kept being late for breakfast due to looking out across the rooftops & the views beyond. Breakfast was great, fresh fruits a must but loads of other choices. The place has... More

On a recent trip to Scotland and England, we had the great good fortune to stay at Six Castlegate. Not only is it a beautiful old place, but Alan and Angela are to be commended for a meticulously run guest house and attention to detail. Lovely rooms - we stayed in Blencathra, a spacious, quiet room with a superking bed... More

On the front door being opened on this wonderful Georgian house, we were met with a cheery smile and a warm welcome by Alan, the owner. Shown our the breakfast room and then our room with a request that we indicated on a well laid out form what we required for breakfast and at what time. Wonderful to be offered... More

I have enjoyed several stops at this fantastic b&b with my wife and friends over several years now, and it simply gets better every time. From the beautifully furnished rooms, the fine details of every thing is simply unique. My favourite suite is Blencathra : spacious, superb views, pure elegance.
