Situated in the grounds of a former 1880s grammar school, this mid terrace house is located in a south-facing courtyard, and is light and airy as it retains the original high ceilings and sash windows. Strawberry How is nestled on the edge of the popular market town of Cockermouth, but has easy walking access into the centre via the Greenway Footpaths. This comfortable, well-presented property provides a delightful base for exploring the northern Lake District. Cockermouth is home to Wordsworth House, where William Wordsworth was born in 1770, which is now a museum that has been dedicated to the writer. The town also has a number of independent speciality shops and art galleries. Tours are available for the local Jennings Brewery, and food can be purchased from the fantastic Taste Cumbria food festival held every September. In the older part of town is the Kirkgate Centre, which is the town’s centre for art, theatre, film and music. Slightly further afield is the Lake District Wildlife Park. The northern and central fells provide stunning scenery with great walks without the crowds of the southern lakes. The beautiful lakes of Buttermere, Crummock and Loweswater are right on the doorstep. Beach 10½ miles. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
