This traditional cottage dates back to the 18th Century, set in the Heart of ’walker’s paradise’ Rosthwaite with the fells circumscribing the village at the foot of the Borrowdale Valley. The property oozes ’olde worlde’ charm with each room having original beams Nokka still retains its slate flagged floor. Nokka was originally a yeoman’s or statesman’s house (farmhouse) and following that it became an inn. In 1769 the poet Thomas Gray went on a tour of the lakes and Nokka is mentioned in his ’Journal’ which was published in 1775 after his death in 1771. In more recent times Nokka was drawn by A Wainwright and can be seen in his book ’The Coast to Coast Walk’.
