Stayed here twice in the last month and on our second visit we felt as if we were visiting old friends. Mat and Sam are doing a fantastic job in their new venture! Everywhere is spotlessly clean and decor is most relaxing. Rooms are equipped with everything you require, including cookies and chocolates! Breakfast was perfectly cooked with a great... More

We have just returned from visiting family in Cockermouth, stayed at the above which is a Grade 2 listed building, but having all modern amenities. Sam and Matty, as mentioned on other reviews, have only been here two months, but made us extremely welcome. We were shown round a few of the other rooms, singles doubles and one room that... More

We stayed here when our house was flooded in Cockermouth. The welcome from Sam and Matt couldn't have been warmer and hats off to them for providing such a fantastic service in the midst of a very challenging week for the town and especially given the fact that they had only taken over the premises 2 weeks prior. Although my... More

This is a fantastic B&B. Wonderfully kept, beautifully decorated and a great mix of the classic and modern. I second the comments on breakfast... quality cereals, fresh fruit and yoghurts were a great start to the day for me! (Cooked breakfasts were available) Very friendly service from the owners too. Great location, I recommend you try it!

We stayed here as we were dining in the restaurant across the road and it was a bit too far to drive home. Stayed here about twenty years ago and the place has been transformed! It has been modernised but it has still retained the ambience of the old building. Lovely, bright bedroom with modern shower room. Two shower heads... More

We stayed here for one night, and wished we could have stayed longer. Such a beautiful property, and a superb host. Breakfast was delicious. We had looked at this B&B everytime we visited our favourite restaurant, which is just opposite. So glad we finally got to stay here. It did not disappoint.

Don't be fooled by the exterior of this place. Inside the rooms are really comfortable, very clean and the owners extremely helpful and welcoming. Breakfasts are lovely with good choice. Maybe avoid rooms at the front if you like to have open windows as the road is quite busy but there are fans in the rooms to keep cool in... More

Six Castlegate is a fabulous B & B. Perfect central location. Beautiful rooms. Great breakfasts and very nice owners. 5 stars without a doubt. We visited for a couple of nights in July and we will definitely be back. Very tranquil and quiet too 😀.

The UK Lake District is such a very popular tourist destination, staying just on the edge in Cockermouth was a wise choice. Easygoing little town with no phoney touristic twaddle but within easy reach of all the places you want to visit. Six Castlegate is a classic example of how to run a clean, comfortable guesthouse with excellent service AND... More
