Cockermouth and the North West Fells Cottages

The ancient market town of Cockermouth sits on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park. Steeped in over 800 years of history, Cockermouth has been designated a Gem Town by the National Heritage Society, due to its many beautiful buildings, gardens and local landmarks.

The town''s appeal is its authenticity, with the street layout and many of its buildings remaining untouched for hundreds of years. One such building is Wordsworth House, former home of famed playwright William Wordsworth, situated in the centre of town and now fully restored to its historical prime. The town centre is extremely attractive, with impressive floral displays throughout the main streets and plenty of boutique shops, cafes and bars in which to spend an hour or two. The market square area has recently been returned to its former glory and is the focal point once again for both visitors and residents alike.

Cockermouth is very well located for exploring the beautiful Lake District fells and the Western Lakes and coast, with plenty of delightful routes available around the peaceful lakes and country trails in the area and of course all manner of outdoor activities such as fishing, cycling, boating and unsurprisingly, excellent walking. The town itself has a number of peaceful parks that take in the River Cocker, with great spots for picnics in the summer and relaxing strolls.
