Hi there and thanks for the review. So glad you enjoyed the cottage. We're sorry you experienced a humidity issue and can only advise that because the cottage is 250 years old with solid walls, it benefits from opening windows daily to air the house....More

About the neighbourhood
This Georgian town, situated on the west coast of Cumbria, was one of the first post-renaissance planned towns in the country. Built on shipping and mining, both industries have now declined, but Whitehaven is never-the-less an attractive town and is one of the 40 Gem Towns in England (the only other in Cumbria being Cockermouth).

From the South:
Leave the M6 motorway at Junction 36. Left onto the A591. After a few miles turn left onto the A590. Follow this road for approximately 18 miles, then at Greenodd turn right onto the A5092. Continue onto the A595 following signs to Whitehaven. After approximately 30 miles, you will come to Egremont. Do not take the first roundabout, instead go to the 2nd roundabout and take the 3rd exit up East Road ( near the Esso Garage). Follow East Road until the road bears to the right and follow signs to Ennerdale. Go down the hill, over the bridge and the cottage is just on the left.

From the North:
