Bell Cottage is a wonderful apartment located just 100 yards away from Main Street, which is the main shopping thoroughfare of Cockermouth’s town centre, so if you want to leave the car behind and explore the sights on foot, this property is perfect. Renovated in 2018, this cosy apartment is ideal for a couple looking for a relaxing break in the heart of the action. With a comfortable double bedroom and a modern en-suite shower room on the first floor, you will be sure to love the view over Cockermouth towards the impressive church and its grounds. The ground floor features an open plan living space offering good levels of comfort and quality furnishings, complete with a smart TV provided so you can catch up on your weekly entertainment fix. If you like cycling, don’t forget to bring your bikes along which can be stored in the bike store.

Cockermouth has a vibrant town centre and an abundance of fantastic pubs serving locally produced cask ales and fine food, the nearest of which is located only 50 yards away from Bell Cottage. It has a great selection of dining options, all within 5 minutes’ walk, including Italian bistro’s, gastro pubs, deli’s, independent coffee shops and fast food which means you may decide not to cook at all. It really is an amazing place with lovely walks along the river and a range of independent speciality shops. Within 75 yards you’ll reach Kirkgate Arts if you fancy taking in some performing arts on your holiday, or why not visit Wordsworth House, the birthplace of William Wordsworth? Nestled beneath the castle walls you’ll find the famous Jennings Brewery, offering tours, tastings and bottled beers to take away.

Surrounded on three sides by the Lake District National Park means you get the best of both worlds at Bell Cottage. Choose between the rugged, mountainous scenery of The Lakes and the sandy beaches of the West Cumbrian coastline. A short car journey means you can reach Bassenthwaite Lake in 5 miles, a picturesque expanse of lake with beautiful views and the backdrop of Skiddaw, one of the highest mountains in England offering fantastic walking and cycle routes as well as an osprey viewpoint. Bassenthwaite is also home to The Lake District Wildlife Park, 6 miles, offering a fun day out for all the family, and The Lakes Distillery with good food and tasting tours. Plus, you’re only 10 miles from the western coast of Cumbria with sandy beaches and miles of cycle track. Beach 9½ miles. Shop and restaurant 200 yards, pub 50 yards.

    It was a lovely cottage. It could have done with being a bit cleaner, there were thick dust on the skirting boards and the sheets on the bed, when we arrived were full of stains and the bed wasn't clean. But they did get changed after we told the local office. There were dirty marks on the wall in the bathroom, and one of the towels still had the last persons makeup on, I did tell the local office about the towel, but when they changed the bed they didn't change the towel. and the oven in the kitchen wasn't clean. But in all it was a lovely place, and in a very good position for all shops and restaurants.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the agency; We are glad you liked Bell Cottage it is indeed a lovely little place. We are very sorry that the bedding & sheets had been missed when the property had been cleaned; as you know as soon as we were made aware these were changed for you. We have put additional checks in place to prevent this happening again.
