Hotels in Cockermouth
Within easy reach of the Lakes, Cockermouth in Cumbria is a lovely setting to spend a few days relaxing and exploring the sights.
In the town itself, you'll walk along ancient streets, following its original medieval outline, and lined with houses from the 17th to 19th centuries.
Places to visit
Occupied during Roman and Norman times, the history of Cockermouth stretches back through the ages. The town as we find it today is a mix of grand and picturesque buildings.
Make sure to check out Cockermouth Castle. This stately home is still lived in, while much of the wider structure is party ruined, as it dates right back to Norman times. It's only open once a year, so it's definitely worth planning your trip around this particular visit if possible.
Another great day out is Wordsworth House. Unsurprisingly, this was the birthplace of poet, William Wordsworth, and the house and gardens are an interesting find. There's even a working 18th-century kitchen to explore.
When it comes to having a great night out, make sure to visit the Kirkgate Centre to catch a play or enjoy some live music.
To make the most of your stay, try to find a Cockermouth hotel close to the centre of the town, so that you can really soak up the atmosphere. The Trout Hotel, along the river, Allerdale Court and Manor House Hotel are all worth a look.
Food and drink
From local breweries to restaurants, there's plenty of places to enjoy a bite to eat or a relaxing drink in the town.
Pop to Jennings Brewery, or The Lakes Distillery for a tipple and a fun day out, and for food, try some of the popular local eateries like Wild Zucchinis Bistro, serving Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes, sample vegetarian delights at Quince and Medlar, or visit The Coffee Kitchen if you're after a charming café.
