Cockermouth, Lake District, Cumbria, England
A warm welcome awaits you at 23, Kirkgate - a Listed Georgian cottage in the Kirkgate conservation area of historic Cockermouth, on the uncrowded north western edge of the Lake District National Park.
Carefully restored and tastefully decorated by its loving owners, the cottage is ideally situated, overlooking the Parish church, and close to all Cockermouth's amenities, including superb restaurants, excellent pubs, interesting specialist shops and the lively Kirkgate Arts Centre.

With its four poster bed and log-effect electric stove, this snug cottage for two makes a romantic hideaway at any time of the year.
Strictly no smoking. One well-behaved dog only.

We stayed at this lovely cottage over Christmas and New Year. We first stayed in September and enjoyed it so much, We actually forfeited a £200 deposit on another property( which is A LOT of money to us) to return at Christmas. We arrived to find a beautifully decorated Christmas tree, a bottle of bubbly and even a Christmas card!... more

Stayed here in December 2015. On the plus side the location is excellent with the excellent Bitter End pub a few steps away as well as the main town centre with its various eateries,shops etc. On the downside, the cottage, as others have said looks thrown together.. I have stayed in a lot of rentals in the area whilst visiting... more

Management response:

This review is somewhat disingenuous, as it appears to have been posted by the partner of Sam Duske, who has already reviewed their stay and to whose review we have responded. When he refers to "as others have said" he is in fact referring only to the comments by Sam Duske, the only other visitor to have found this cottage... more

A lovely little cottage in an ideal location but sooooo lacks the personal touch. Huge potential to make it into something amazing but everything was just basic and bland. Wood burning stove removed and replaced by electric one - we primarily booked this cottage because it had a wood burner. Very disappointed. On the plus side it was still warm... more

Management response:

We are as disappointed as yourselves that we had to remove the woodburning stove, however we were informed by the chimney expert that it, and the flue, were unsafe, so we had to quickly replace it with a replica, and amend the property description accordingly. We are sorry you did not like our personal touches- fresh flowers, local prints on... more
