Buttermere Cottage is the perfect base to explore the delights of Cockermouth on foot.

Walking from the property you’ll reach the town centre in just 200 yards, passing by the Kirkgate Centre where you can take in a show or a movie.

You really have got the best of both worlds.

    We had a lovely long weekend break in Buttermere Cottage. It was our first time in Cockermouth and Buttermere Cottage was excellently placed very close to the town centre. It is a light, spacious cosy cottage with good kitchen equipment and a very comfortable bed. It was great to have free on street parking very close by too. I'm sure we will be returning.
