What a great find. Fantastic cottage in a quiet location but still close enough to all the amenities needed. Warm and cozy, quiet location with seven nights of great sleep. Facilities honestly matched the description on the website and our hosts have been wonderful. We have loved this place so much we are back in November and will again be...

Lovely cottage in quiet yet easily accessible location. High standard of furnishings and everything you need to have a great holiday. Cottage is cosy and warm and garden would be lovely on a warm summer's evening (we didn't get one of these). Perfect cottage for a couple. Sarah and Sean very friendly and helpful suggesting walks we hadn't thought of....

An absolutely gorgeous cottage, well equipped and lovingly restored to a very high standard, with large bedrooms and ample living space, on a quiet country lane on the edge of Egremont. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful gardens with sheep as neighbours and a lovely find was the little beck running along the bottom of the garden and a camp...

About the neighborhood
This Georgian town, situated on the west coast of Cumbria, was one of the first post-renaissance planned towns in the country. Built on shipping and mining, both industries have now declined, but Whitehaven is never-the-less an attractive town and is one of the 40 Gem Towns in England (the only other in Cumbria being Cockermouth).

The development of Whitehaven owes much to the Lowther family, it was Sir John Lowther, inspired by Christopher Wren's designs for rebuilding London after the Great Fire of 1666, who laid out the original grid system of streets and specified the type of houses to be built. Many historians believe that New Yorks street system is inspired by Whitehavens grid system.

From the South:
Leave the M6 motorway at Junction 36. Left onto the A591. After a few miles turn left onto the A590. Follow this road for approximately 18 miles, then at Greenodd turn right onto the A5092. Continue onto the A595 following signs to Whitehaven. After approximately 30 miles, you will come to Egremont. Do not take the first roundabout, instead go to the 2nd roundabout and take the 3rd exit up East Road ( near the Esso Garage). Follow East Road until the road bears to the right and follow signs to Ennerdale. Go down the hill, over the bridge and the cottage is just on the left.
