Right on the edge of the Lake District National Park lies Cockermouth, a quaint market town brimming with art galleries, traditional pubs and speciality shops. It's a historic area with plenty to write home about, as William Wordsworth can attest – he was born here, and many of the area's beautiful landscapes inspired his poetry. This snug heritage home is just a five-minute drive from the town centre, making it the perfect spot to switch off and unwind in the Cumbrian countryside. Inside, there's oodles of charm and character – a brick fireplace with a crackling wood-burner in the living room, reclaimed tiles in the kitchen and antique furniture everywhere you look. Two lounges ensure you'll have tons of space to snuggle up and get cosy, whether you want to play a board game, listen to a record or curl up with a good book. The kitchen and conservatory-style dining room promise lazy breakfasts and delightful family dinners, while the shabby-chic bedrooms upstairs are artsy and comfortable. But the real gem is the garden. Spend your afternoons lounging in the sun, sipping wine, dining alfresco and soaking up the far-reaching views. Down a wooded path, you'll find a private riverbank ideal for fishing. Your host can even organise a team of ghillies to show you the ropes and most scenic fishing spots, whether you're an experienced fisherman or a first-timer.
