    Ghillie Cottage is tucked away in a private courtyard, set back from the main street and makes a great choice for your next Cumbrian adventure. Once an old chapel and now converted into six apartments, Ghillie Cottage has been renovated and refurbished for 2018. The good quality finish and thoughtful decoration is evident as soon as you walk in. Downstairs you have an open plan living/dining room leading to a brand new fitted kitchen for preparing that perfect meal. A lovely spiral staircase, a real feature of the property, leads you to two bedrooms and a modern bathroom. The property sleeps up to four adults in a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, both of which have a TV and plenty of character. The property is aptly named Ghillie’s Cottage due to its links to the fishing rights on the River Derwent that are owned by the family. A ghillie being a person who acts as an attendant to someone on a hunting expedition, or in this case, a fishing trip. The River Derwent is a highly sought after river amongst anglers providing rich pickings of salmon and trout. As long as you have a National Rod Licence you may fish on the family’s beat. Details of the location and costs are available on request.

    The popular Cumbrian town of Cockermouth, birthplace of William Wordsworth, is just a short walk away. In fact, the National Trust Wordsworth House is just a few minutes walk. Your nearest supermarket and a couple of pubs serving great food and local cask ales are also a few minutes walk away. The main town centre is also easily reached on foot. Cockermouth is a thriving market town full of hidden surprises at every turn. It boasts a great selection of pubs, quaint restaurants, micro-breweries, local craft shops, independent coffee houses, delicatessens, speciality shops and of course, well known retailers and branded stores too. If you like culture, Kirkgate Arts shows movies, arts and drama. Fancy a swim? The leisure centre is also nearby as well as local cycle hire. You’ll also find the famous Jennings Brewery nestled beneath the castle walls where the River Derwent and River Cocker meet.

    Cockermouth is on the border of the Lake District National Park, so whether you like the rugged adventure of the mountains or the serenity of the seaside, you’ve got the best of both worlds. You’re also within easy reach of some glorious lakes. Take a 5 mile drive to Bassenthwaite Lake at the foot of the Skiddaw range for fantastic walks, woodland, wildlife and watersports. You’ll also find the Lakes Distillery offering tasting tours as well as the Lake District Wildlife Park just 6 miles away. The popular town of Keswick is 14 miles away and can be reached in about 20 minutes. For walkers and cyclists, you’ll love the route through Whinlatter Forest Park, or continue down the valley to Buttermere which boasts stunning panoramic scenery. If you’re not into fishing, you’ll love Ghillie Cottage. If you are into fishing, life doesn’t get much better than this! Beach 9½ miles. Shop 175 yards, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    Ghillie Cottage was in a great location for exploring the Western Lake District. It was comfortable and well equipped and Claire the owner was really helpful by sending a text when we got there and coming to see us to make sure everything was okay. She gave lots of ideas of places to go with the family. My family and I thourouly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning.

    Recently refurbished cottage situated in a quiet area two minutes from shops, bars, restaurants, etc. High quality furnishings with bright modern kitchen and stunning bathroom. Bedrooms are bright and airy with nice furniture and bedding. I would thoroughly recommend this property and hope to return again soon.

    The street front, before you enter the courtyard is a bit scary,as not as nice as some of the surrounding houses and the actual court is clean , but dull. Certainly the outside does not match the inside which is gorgeous. Really nice town close to a lot of beautiful nature spots.

    Excellent week and a well-equipped cottage. But it would have been good to have a proper table and chairs (tucked under the stairs where the extra armchair is). Meals were awkward and children like to draw etc. Oh, the neighbours were a bit noisy (music at 1.00am one night and arguing). It's always worth putting in extra sound-proofing when renovating, especially in this type of multi-unit development. But Cockermouth is always fun....

    A lovely stay in a clean, warm and very stylish cottage. The owners have thought of everything that makes a holiday a good one and are happy for suggestions and feedback from guests. We had a very wet week so think a larger door mat to protect the beautiful flooring would be a good idea, especially for muddy boots and dripping coats. We found the cottage fine for a couple but four adults might find it a bit cramped, especially when dining at the table - although there is space for a larger one. For ourselves we always like somewhere to spread maps out. There was a plentiful supply of hot water and although we didn't find the sofa very comfortable ourselves, we couldn't fault anywhere else. It is a short walk to the centre of Cockermouth yet shielded from traffic noise. It is not too far to get to the fells for walks and Keswick is only about 14 miles away. All in all, a cottage to be recommended.

    Booked the cottage before pictures had been published, but should not have worried the cottage was lovely. A visit from the owner was very nice as she was concerned that everything was up to a high standard and gave some good tips on places to visit and eat. Would definatly stay there again.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Cockermouth, with lots of walks without having to travel far and a couple of visits to the Theatre by the Lake in nearby Keswick. The cottage is really well appointed, and we appreciated the initial welcome from the owner.
