Perfectly situated just around the corner from Cockermouth town centre, this delightful terraced house is ideal for a relaxing break and offers easy access to this popular Cumbrian hotspot. Poet’s Retreat is a well-presented property which is located just a 2-minute walk from central Cockermouth. With a great selection of pubs and restaurants all within a few minutes’ walk, you can leave the car behind and explore the best bits this town has to offer on foot. Renovated in 2018, this beautiful property is a great choice that can comfortably accommodate up to four guests. Featuring a double bedroom with an en-suite toilet and a twin bedded room, this house is an excellent choice for couples or small families looking for a spacious holiday home at any time of year. On the ground floor you’ll find a cosy living room complete with a Smart TV, DVD/Blu-ray player and record player so you can take in a movie or binge on your favourite box sets. It also features a spacious dining room, contemporary kitchen and a family bathroom with a shower over the bath.

Cockermouth has a great selection of dining options all within five minutes’ walk including Italian bistros, gastro pubs, delis, independent coffee shops and fast food, which means you may decide not to cook at all. It has a vibrant centre and it really is an amazing place with lovely walks along the river and a range of independent speciality shops. Within 50 yards you are on Kirkgate, home to Kirkgate Arts if you fancy taking in some performing arts on your holiday. Or you can visit Wordsworth House, the birthplace of William Wordsworth, from which this holiday cottage takes its name. You can swim at the local leisure pool or take a trip to the famous Jennings Brewery, nestled beneath the castle walls, and offers tastings and bottled beers to take away.

A stay at Poet’s Retreat gives you the best of both worlds, surrounded on three sides by the Lake District National Park, which means you can choose between the rugged, mountainous scenery of the Lakes and the sandy beaches of the West Cumbria coastline. Jump in the car and visit Bassenthwaite Lake, just 5 miles away, a picturesque lake with beautiful views and the backdrop of Skiddaw, one of the highest mountains in England. Bassenthwaite is also home to The Lake District Wildlife Park, 6 miles, offering a fun day out for all the family, as well as The Lakes Distillery with good food and tasting tours. The popular town of Keswick is 14 miles away, or for walking and cycling enthusiasts you’ll be sure to love Whinlatter Forest Park. Beach 10 miles. Shop and restaurant 550 yards, pub 100 yards.
