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.

So much potential but in need of total overhaul and better care. Was freezing on arrival with leaking water, curtains closed despite daylight, leaves in bath. Needs a good deep clean. With coal fire and two electric heaters next to it we managed to get living room warm and camped in there during daylight hours. Too chilly to eat in kitchen! Coal fire blows smoke back into the room (windows don’t open to vent). Hard to get wet clothes dry after walking. On arrival there were two toilet rolls, no soap, no matches, no firelighters, and absolutely no tea bags etc. would have been helpful to know this in advance as no shop in village. We expected it to be simple but regardless it was disappointing.

Fantastic location for walkers with pubs and restaurants nearby. Place is pretty spartan but has bags of character and the fire in the front room is great. Be aware you need to bring basics like toilet roll, shower gel, soap etc.

A beautiful, rambling character cottage in the heart of breathtaking mountain scenery. It could literally be described as stunning given the very low beams in the kitchen. We loved every nook and cranny from the spacious, well-equipped kitchen to the cosy living room with its wonderful open fire and big, comfortable sofas. Bedrooms were large and the beds were also comfortable. The cottage is perfectly located for walkers who want to climb Scafell Pike from the scenic northern approach, and who appreciate the two pubs situated right across the road. We'll definitely be back.
