“Mrs ”
Reviewed April 23, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Stayed here during the easter holidays with my 3 children, 13, 10 & 4. Upon arrival I was gobsmacked, beautiful little cottage we all instantly loved- yes even the teenager! The living room area is welcoming and cosy, dining/ kitchen area perfect for family meals or games nights. The cottage is fully equipped with everything we needed as a family, facilities are superb. Both bedrooms are lovely too, beds extremely comfortable. The little added extras like "hame from hame" & "love nest" make the cottage all that more special.

The garden although small is again perfect, I enjoyed a few morning cuppas out there whilst the kids slept on.

Lots to do in the area, we enjoyed the walks and learning about the history of cockermouth. Only downside was having to come home, our week flew past!

Wouldn't hesitate to go back.

“Fabulous cottage in ideal location”
Reviewed January 4, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

This cottage was warm and cozy. It has been very well refurbished and the owners have thought carefully about what is needed to make the stay comfortable and easy. Very comfortable beds and good kitchen.

“Lovely little cottage in a great location”
Reviewed February 25, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We spent a long time searching for a property that felt like a nice cosy, country cottage, but still modern and fresh looking - I definitely found that with Challoner Cottage. The property was nice and warm, and whilst it was only a gas fire rather than a log burner, it still looked and felt like a real burner. Perfect for relaxing in after a day out on the lakes.

The property is situated in the centre of Cockermouth, and whilst the town is not the most picturesque of towns I have been, it is a very short drive into the lakes and of course the town has far more amenities than if you were based in the lakes - a large Sainsbury's is a two minute walk from the property. There are lots of pubs in Cockermouth - some very 'local', but some really nice ones too. There's a really nice bar/restaurant called The Castle Bar, which we went to a few times - this is only a few minutes walk from the property.

If I were going back to the Lake District (and I plan to), I would not hesitate to stay at Challoner Cottage again.

“Delightful cottage situated in quiet street 2 minutes walk from bars and restaurants”
Reviewed September 2, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Cottage decorated to high standard with lots of home comforts, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Well equipped dining area and comfortable lounge with TV. We loved the cottage and the locality to the town centre yet so near many beautiful areas of the Lake District.
Parking was not a problem as there is a car park a couple of minutes walk away.
I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to explore the area, be located in a quiet street but so close to all amenities.
