I have stayed here twice now, this most recent visit was a solo trip and I had the same wonderful experience of staying in a beautiful location with kind and thoughtful owners whose welcome is second to none. The hotel is as clean and tidy as ever, crisp white sheets, fresh milk, freshly made potato cakes for breakfast amongst other... More

My wife and i only stayed for a weekend but were made to feel extremely welcome by the hotel owners. Breakfast was very tasty with a good selection to choose from. We both had the cooked breakfast which i would highly recommend. The bedroom and en-suite was spotless and the bed very comfy. Only disappointment was we didn't get a... More

We spent a lovely New Years weekend at Six Castlegate. Upon our arrival we were greeted by Alan who took our bags and gave us a choice of two rooms we could stay in. Our room, Scafell was lovely, with views out onto the mountains just seen over the roof tops, and the en-suite had a bath. For our two... More

From the friendly owners to the special accommodation and first rate breakfast, everything was first class. A credit to the industry

This is a lovely guesthouse to stay at when you're in the Lakes. I often stay here when I'm away on business. The bedrooms are clean and cosy; ensuites are brand new with nice products (had a very lovely candlelit bath last night); wifi has good connectio; this guesthouse is in a great location right in the heart of Cockermouth....

We stayed at Six Castlegate for two nights from 23rd September 2011. We were greeted by Alan who was very friendly and had lots of knowledge about the local area. The B&B has limited parking however you can borrow a permit to park for free at the leisure centre which is only about 2 minutes walk away. The B&B also... More

Stayed here for five nights and would certainly return and would recommend to anyboby wanting somewhere to stay in the area. Room spotlessly clean with all the little extras you would not normally expect e.g free bottled water each day and fresh milk always available - so much nicer than individual long life portions. Breakfast choice expansive with wonderful choice... More

Despite our advancing years, we stayed one night in the Scafell room at Sixcastlegate to visit Cockrock (the annual Cockermouth Rock Festival). It is quite simply spotlessly clean, relaxed, friendly, high-quality accommodation in a lovely old house, with an equally excellent breakfast. The Guest Information book indicated that the hosts would do their utmost to help out with whatever was... More
