Being 3 or 400 years old, brings some compromises compared to new purpose built places, but also brings a charm, homeliness and some history that not many places can compete with. Nice clean and comfortable bedrooms, lovely choice of breakfasts and a lovely host. Unreservedly recommended.

Very comfortable room in an interesting and beautifully kept Georgian house very close to the centre of Cockermouth. The tasty breakfasts offered a good choice including a range of fresh fruit and the tea tray in the bedroom was kept well stocked. Samantha and Mathew were very friendly and made us feel very welcome, and were flexible about arrival timing....

It is just over a year since we stayed here and there are new proprietors. The high standards have been maintained! Reason for stay was to go to the "Quince & Medlar" restaurant for a meal and it is too far to drive home afterwards. It makes an excellent combination as the restaurant is immediately across the road. Did not...

Lovely bedroom, huge comfortable bed. Bathroom was impeccable. Breakfast was great. Hosts are really welcoming. Can't fault this great guesthouse which is a minutes walk from town. Parking is at the leisure centre round the corner for which you get a pass. Superb !!!

Delightful building, delightful room, delightful breakfast, delightful owner. Great night's sleep in an extremely comfortable bed. Impeccably clean. Free parking pass for the nearby (approx 150m) leisure centre was provided which was available until the our end of our visit to the area. Would highly recommend... and we'll be back for sure.

From my first contact to waving goodbye, full marks. Sam and Matt have a lot of hospitality experience previously to owning Six Castlegate, and it shines through. A lovely welcome and my bike stored securely in the bowels of a tremendous building rich in character. I had a excellent good sized room which was warm and immaculately clean with views...

I've stayed at Six Castlegate twice now, and both times the accommodation has been flawless, the breakfasts delicious and the hosts incredibly friendly and helpful. The building itself is a stunning house in the delightful town of Cockermouth. All in all, a wonderful place to stay, and I hope to return for a third visit.
