    “Constant traffic noise into the early hours, due to being right on the A595!”

    No double glazing! No blind in bedroom! Overwhelming smell of damp, as soon as you enter the property! 10 air fresheners trying to cover the smell! Very difficult car parking! No instructions for cooker or microwave! Shower tiles cracked and stained! No plug in sink! No lid on toilet! Metal nosing at kitchen step falling off! No info on local interest! Peeling paint! Outside area tiny and a mess! The town is very run down, with few places to eat at night! Nearby pub closed Monday/ Tuesday ...

The property

Nestled in the centre of Whitehaven, linked to the owner’s home, is this well-presented, semi-detached apartment, 8A Corkickle. Set over the first-floor, this inviting abode is a great choice for families and friends looking to experience both the countryside and coast of this region. The open-plan living space offers a spacious feel, with high vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, offering a great space to socialise and entertain. Dust off those cooking books and make the most of the well-appointed kitchen, whilst the rest of the group can keep you company at the breakfast bar or set the dining table for delicious feast. As you wind down, relax on the sofa and tune into the Smart TV, catching up on your favourite shows or choosing a film to watch. The master bedroom features a sumptuous king-size bed whilst there is also a double bunk, serviced by a gleaming shower room where you can wash away the day. When you’re ready to explore, Whitehaven boasts an array of bars and pubs just paces away from these apartments including The Pack Horse, The Tavern and The Shipwrights which all serve traditional pub food and are great places for evening drinks. Cockermouth lies a short drive from 8A Corkickle, where you can explore the National Trust site Wordsworth House, the home of the famed poet and Castlegate House Gallery. Those seeking outdoor adventure can venture into the Lake District and climb the mighty Scafell Pike or take off along the gentle waters of Lake Windermere and stop off in the hustle and bustle of Bowness. 8A Corkickle is a wonderful choice for a getaway to Cumbria, whatever time of year.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £300.

About the location

WHITEHAVEN

Saint Bees 4.6 miles; Seaton 9.5 miles; Bowness-on-Windermere 49.8 miles.

The West Cumbrian town of Whitehaven is situated on the coast between the sparkling sea and the Lakeland Fells. It was one of the first ‘planned’ towns in England and today can boast almost 250 Listed Georgian buildings and some beautiful parks and gardens. Today the town’s harbour is a designated conservation area and visitors can learn about the town’s history at the excellent Beacon Heritage Centre. The surrounding coastline has much to offer, not least its old smugglers villages, such as Ravenglass, and the red sandstone cliffs of pretty St Bees - now the start of Wainwright’s famous “Coast to Coast” Walk. Meanwhile inland you can enjoy the tranquillity of the Western lakes: Ennerdale, Loweswater, Crummock, Buttermere and Wastwater. Ennerdale is perhaps the most peaceful of all the lakes, with no public roads running along its National Trust owned shoreline.
