About the property

The owners part time residence, the property has a Victorian Old Cobblers shop front with 2/3 bed accommodation. Quirky and unique, it is 15 mins or 6 miles to Cockermouth, 25 minutes to Keswick, 2 mins walk to the promenade, harbour, Roman museum , Aquarium & The Wave etc. It is ideal for exploring the Solway Coastand and the Lake District is within easy reach by car amd public transport. The property is fully furnished and equipped for relaxation and adventure. An alternative to central Lakes options. The old shop is used for storage of the owners personal affects. Accommodation comprises entrance hall, study / lobby, dining kitchen, utility, overgrown garden with resident (semi-wild) rabbit named Flat! On the first floor there is a large sitting room with two 3 seater settees and a woodburning stove, T.V. etc, Bathroom in Victorian style. Next floor up are two bedrooms with double beds and then very steep stairs to a quirky loft with a further double bed. I would prefer adults only to use the loft, and with caution as the stairs are very steep and the decor is unusual /spooky! The town dates from Roman times with Harbour and Prom and has Pubs cafes and shops. There is a Plaza Cinema within 10 minutes drive. The location itself is close to Bassenthwaite Lake (with an Osprey viewing point), The Lakeland Wildlife Park, Keswick and, slightly further afield, Dove Cottage (home of William Wordsworth), Ruskin's House, Scawfell Pike (the highest mountain in England) and the Eskdale Valley with the famous Wastwater Lake and an array of walks, eating places and real ale pubs.
