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. The living room has a sandstone fireplace and a court cupboard dating back to 1705. 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’.
Nokka can be booked together with Lobstone Cottage (CC117109) to accommodate up to 12 guests.

We have been to nokka 3 times now and although great for a walking holiday it is so dirty. The shower and bath was not even cleaned on arrival and crockery had to be washed before we could use it. For the amount charged for our stay I would just expect better standards and also the beam in the kitchen should have some kind of foam or something to protect when walking around, my husband has now said we would not book again because of this, it is dangerous.

Nokka was a charming oldy worldy cottage set in stunning scenery. Excellent location for walking the Borrowdales without having to get in your car, but near to many other locations with just a short drive. Useful local tearoom selling a few basics a min walk away, but otherwise Keswick just 10 mins away for shopping by car, and 2 pubs opposite, although one shut currently for refurbishment. Nokka could do with some updating but it didn't bother us - we were warm and comfortable and plenty of hot water after a long trek. It would benefit from a deep clean, but again not complaining, just a suggestion. Overall loved Nokka, would recommend and will be returning :)
