My boyfriend and I stayed in La'al cottage for a holiday getaway. When we arrived we were in awe at how quaint and beautiful the cottage was!

We felt right at home... the sofa was so comfortable, the bedroom was very modern and we loved the style of the cottage.

Although the kitchen is smaller than average, we didn't mind at all. We cooked most lunch times and evenings. Tea, coffee and other things like herbs and spices were available for us to use.

The village of Cockermouth is a 2 minute walk from the cottage. One evening we had a takeaway from The Spice Club indian restaurant just a 5 minute walk away. Very delicious, I would recommend!

We enjoyed going out for late night walks and coming back to a warm, cosy cottage.

We loved our stay so much that we asked to stay for a 4th night! Jan was very helpful and quick at responding especially when we decided to stay longer.

Thank you again Jan, we loved staying at La'al cottage so much. We will definitely be back in the near future!

La’al cottage is ideally situated, very well equipped and very clean and cosy

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay when visiting the Lake District, within easy reach of lovely places to visit and really nice pubs 1 min walk away. It’s small but perfect for a couple.

The kitchen is very well equipped and the bed is big and comfortable for a great nights sleep

Hopefully will return in the future.

Thank you

really clean and nice but not cosy

  • 3 of 5

This is a lovely little cottage near the heart of Cockermouth, comfortable bed, well kitted out and all you need for a short stay> We stayed 3 nights in February however and it was cold. The single radiator and fan heater heating just couldnt get the place warm enough. Not least, perhaps because, no door or curtain to the kitchen and staircase meant all the heat generated went upstairs! So we ended up wrapped in throws on the two seater sofa. I think if we had visited in summer we would have given 5 stars though, but not enough heating in winter to stay warm, well.....................

Owner's Response: Dear Timothy. Thank you for your lovely comments about La’al. Cottage. Thank you also for your feedback on the heating. We will look at ways to improve the heating system so that during any subsequent cold snap the cottage remains cosy. With kind regards. Jan and Guy Roberts

Wonderful cottage in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Great communication from Jan throughout the process. The cottage was easy to find with plenty of parking available on the cobbles.

Beautifully decorated throughout with all the home comforts you need.

Cockermouth is very quiet at this time of year but this meant that we were able to have meals out without making any bookings. The Bitter End and Castle Bar pubs serve excellent meals; the latter being our favourite as it had a log fire and showed the football.

Overall, the cottage provided a great base for a short break.

Lovely Cottage

We really enjoyed our stay at La'al Cottage. The beautiful little cottage is well presented and equipped; perfect for a lovely stay for two. Cockermouth was a great small town to explore also.

Cosy little cottage in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is situated just off the town centre and is just a short walk from plenty of pubs and shops. It was very clean and welcoming. The room is a good size whilst the small kitchen offers everything you will need.

The upstairs bedroom was large and very nice, with views out onto the churchyard. The heating ensured we were always cosy, it is perhaps missing a real fire but given the size of the property, this would probably make things too hot.

We had good communication with Jan before we arrived and really enjoyed our stay in Cockermouth, which this cottage helped to make it just perfect.
