We had been along with 2 other families for this easter vacation. Grey Goat house was a wonderful place to stay with ample facilities.The place is near to town centre and near by shops are Sainsburys and ALDI. The only issue was parking. Finding a place was not so quiet easy. Otherwise it was a nice place to stay. more

We stayed here for a weekend and found the property ideal for a family or group of friends to stay within. Plenty of room and excellent catering facilities. Cocker mouth itself is a nice little town and not far from many great walks and scenery. more
