Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 5
Cockermouth, Lake District, Cumbria, England
Southwaite Green is in an area of peace and tranquility in the Lorton Vale, almost mid-way between Cockermouth and Lorton both 2 miles away, Keswick is 9 miles to the east. Within a short drive are the less crowded western lakes Crummock, Loweswater, Buttermere and Ennerdale, winner of Britain's Best View. There are ample walking and cycling opportunities from the door and a wealth of shops and restaurants can be found in both Cockermouth and Keswick.

We had a week in Esther's Barn during half term. The cottage was well equipped, really comfortable beds and clean and well cared for. Plenty of hot water and great bathrooms! The grounds were interesting to stroll around and the whole environment was very eco-friendly....More

Clean, modern, well laid out cottage with excellent facilities. Great location with very accommodating (but not over bearing) owners. The quality of the accommodation ensured our new years break was excellent.

About the neighbourhood
The lakes Buttermere, Crummock and Loweswater are very close, Loweswater a nice walk, with Keswick and Borrowdale a short drive away over the Whinlatter pass. Hiking, climbing and other outdoor pursuits are very popular, with many walks made famous by the Wainwright series of guidebooks. The C2C bike route passes close to the cottage, so bring your bikes or hire them in Cockermouth, but be prepared for hills.

Cockermouth is one of the few towns in the Lakes that retain its traditional look and feel, with individual independent shops on the tree-lined main street giving the town great character. There is also a farmers' market in the market square the first Saturday of each month.

Wordsworth was born here and his house is a National Trust property, with staff dressed for the 18th...
