We were recommended this B&B by friends who stay here every year. They also recommended Blencathra as the best room. The bed was enormous and extremely comfortable. Breakfast choices are made the night before and they are excellent and will sustain you for most of the day. It is a very short walk into Cockermouth where there are ample pubs... More

Not only is this a lovely place but breakfast is awesome too! The only place to stay in cockermouth when you're there for the weekend. To top it all, Matt and Sam (the owners) are lovely. I can highly recommend.

We booked Six Castlegate at the last minute and did so without much research. When we arrived we were warmly greeted and made to feel right at home. Our room was very large and comfortable with lots of little extras that we loved. The bed was very nice and they even had a fan in the closet. Breakfast the next... More

What a gem of a B&B and what lovely hosts Matty and Sam were. They made my friend and I feel very welcome and were very knowledgable about the area too pointing us in the right direction towards local restaurants and pubs, all which are within walking distance. The accommodation couldn't have been cleaner with very comfortable beds. Matty and... More

Booked accommodation on behalf of our company employees who were going to be working in Maryport. Spoke to Matt and Sam whom were both very welcoming on the phone and accommodating of our needs. They have since stayed for 12 nights and the feedback from the team has been excellent. Lovely place, lovely accommodation, excellent breakfast and top rate hosts.... More

My partner and I have stayed at Six Castlegate a number of times and we are never disappointed. The rooms are gorgeous and immaculate, the owners are just lovely and bend over backwards for their guests, and the breakfast is delicious. And the last time we went there, we discovered that it is a Pokestop! So, for Pokemon Go players,... More

Perfect hosts providing a very warm welcome. It's a beautifully furnished building with well appointed rooms and large en-suite. Brilliant nights sleep followed by a first rate breakfast set us up for the day. This is more than a B&B and will be top of my list the next time we visit the Lake District.

This was our second visit ( from Australia) and we had a terrific visit. Sam and Matt couldn't have been more welcoming and went out of their way to help our family which included 2 children. The breakfast was delicious, the room beautiful with a huge bath and it is located just a minute from the Main Street. The free... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B and B. As others have said, our room was beautifully furnished; it was pristine just like the bathroom. The only criticism we have is that we arrived on the hottest day of the year so far and our south facing room was sweltering. There was a fan of course, but I think... More
