The property

Perfect for families or couples looking for a homely place to stay, this pet-friendly cottage is close to local amenities, has an enclosed garden, and is within easy reach of the Lake District National Park. The property has a contemporary kitchen/diner furnished with a four-seater dining table and a breakfast bar for two, along with high-quality appliances to cook at home, including an electric oven and hob, and dishwasher. Next door, you'll find the snug sitting room with two plush sofas, a TV, and electric fire, perfect for putting your feet up after busy days. Alternatively, the garden is an ideal space for outdoor relaxation, with a patio, outdoor seating, a secure area for dogs and children. You'll also find the external utility room equipped with a washing machine and a tumble dryer, so you can keep your walking gear fresh. When it's time to retire, freshen up in the ground-floor bathroom with a bath, shower over, and heated towel rail, before choosing from two pretty bedrooms. The first bedroom has a king-size bed and ample storage space, while the second bedroom has a double bed. If you're looking for a quiet, picturesque town close to the coast and the Lake District, look no further than Dearham; head to one of the town's two pubs, the Commercial Inn or the Sun Inn, for a pint and some traditional pub fare, and on the outskirts you'll find the Moorforge Viking Settlement! The coastal town of Maryport is a short drive away with a host of attractions including Lake District Coast Aquarium, the Senhouse Roman Museum, and Mayport Golf Course, or perhaps you'd prefer strolling along Cumbria's shoreline at Crosscanonby Nature reserve? The wild, windswept coast of Cumbria has mesmerising views across the Solway to Scotland and picturesque villages such as Allonby. You'll find plenty of walks along the Solway Firth Coast, a haven for birdwatchers and wildlife lovers, whilst plenty more adventure awaits in the Lake District National Park a short journey away from Billy's Cottage. Start in Cockermouth, a lovely market town which hosts Wordsworth House and Garden, Castlegate House Gallery, and popular restaurants such as Aspava and The Bitter End pub. For a variety of watersports such as sailing, kayaking and canoeing, be sure to visit Bassenthwaite Lake, close to the Lake District Wildlife Park and scenic hikes up Skiddaw and Grisedale Pike. A little further lies the bustling market town of Keswick where you can watch a performance at Theatre By The Lake, find plenty of activities at Keswick Museum, and discover the ancient Castlerigg Stone Circle. The Lake District is scattered with idyllic walks and waterfalls to explore, whether that's gentle strolls to Lodore Falls set in a wooded valley or breath-taking views at the top of the highest peak, Scafell Pike. Find your next Cumbrian adventure at Billy's Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Cockermouth 5 miles; Bassenthwaite Lake 15 miles; Keswick 19 miles.

The small country village of Dearham is in the borough of Allerdale, just five miles from Cockermouth on the western fringes of the Lake District National Park. Dearham has a thriving community, with four public houses including The Old Mill Inn and The Ploughman, a Post Office/village shop, a fish and chip shop, a hairdresser, a petrol station and a locally renowned pie shop - The Cottage Pie. The countryside offers dramatic panoramic views across this constantly changing landscape to the Loweswater Valley and mountains beyond, including imposing Grassmoor. The nearby rugged coastline of the Solway Firth is within a short drive, and the dramatic coastal route south to Ravenglass and beyond is one of the more scenic and peaceful journeys in the UK. The nearby market town of Cockermouth is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame), with Wordsworth's Georgian family home, set on the main street, now a popular visitor attraction owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth boasts a variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, with the area renowned for the beautiful scenery and superb walking in the northern lakes around Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water. A superb place to enjoy a break in the UK.
