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

"You never get a second chance to make a first impression" Well done Alan and Angela! You are very well deserved of any compliments that come your way! We were visiting the area on a recent golfing trip with friends and after a recommendation, stayed with Alan and Angela at their establishment. Upon entering Six Castlegate we were welcomed by...

Just spent two nights here for second time in a month. Stayed in Blencathra with extra large bed, beautiful large shower and windows with lovely views. Also stayed in Latrigg which was equally as comfortable. Slept like a log even though this room is at the front of the house. Both rooms had luxurious towels and toiletries and tea and... More

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
