Lying just outside the boundary of the Lake District National Park, Cockermouth is an attractive market town not overwhelmed by the tourist atmosphere of Keswick and Ambleside. It is one of only 51 towns in Great Britain designated as a ‘Gem’ town and is, therefore, recommended for preservation by the state as part of our national heritage.

The very pretty Georgian town of Cockermouth is the gateway to the largely undiscovered Western Lake District. It’s a lovely place to live and the added bonus is you can be on a lakeshore, at the beach or up a fell within 20 minutes’ drive – if you can tear yourself away from its wealth of attractions.

Cockermouth has something of a reputation for good shopping and there is a fantastic range of independent shops, foodies love the butchers, bakers, fishmonger and deli's, while those seeking something special for their homes are totally spoilt.

It has a great many amenities and activities of a high standard, these include: Wordsworth's house, four museums, a sports centre with an excellent swimming pool, golf and fishing on the Derwent and Cocker rivers

Travelling along Lamplugh Road towards the A66 and after passing the entrance to Parkside Avenue the driveway to the property is located immediately on the left hand side.

Mains water, electricity and septic tank drainage.
