Alan’s Cottage is located just a couple of minutes’ walk from Cockermouth’s town ventre and is ideally situated to explore the Western Lakes and coast, the northern Lake District Fells, Cockermouth, Bassenthwaite and Keswick.
This property is surrounded on three sides by the Lake District National Park and has contemporary feel. Thanks to the enclosed garden and private allocated parking, it means you can enjoy a stress-free stay in a town centre location. The ground floor features a spacious living room with a 40" Smart TV, a contemporary gas fire and benefits from plenty of light from the large windows. The open plan kitchen/dining room is also modern and has patio doors leading to a small enclosed patio garden which faces east. Upstairs you’ll find two well-appointed bedrooms, the first a double room and the second with twin beds. The bathroom features a large shower cubicle and heated towel rail.
