This house is truly amazing. Expensive but worth every penny. My family and I had a ball. The owners were helpful and informative as well as lovely. The views were so gorgeous and Cockermouth had everything that we needed. Home deliveries from Asda made our lives easier. Brilliant and safe for children. Right in the middle of the lakes so...

We booked the Old Homestead for a friends get together over a long weekend. The property itself is excellent and is set in some beautiful countryside. The photos on the website really don't do it justice. It has a real premium feel to it without losing the rustic ambience that a stay in the lakes should have. Location wise the... More

This is a fantastic place to escape to. The rooms are all huge. Large wet room showers, under floor heating, real fires, top notch leather furniture. Pure luxury :)

The views are outstanding and if the weather is good you can sit outside with a drink from the honesty bar and just chill. Breakfast is superb! We have booked a return... More

Great location to go for a walk, take a motor trip through the English Lake District, dine at excellent nearby restaurants or relax in a leather couch and sip a glass of wine that is available on the honour system. Delicious breakfast served by Zan and Jane.

The second time we´ve stayed at The Old Homestead has been as pleasant as the first time (2006) and service / friendliness have further improved since then. This authentically restored farmhouse B&B is a rather comfortable understatement hideaway with magnificent views of Lake District Mountains, still being close to Cockermouth. The interior is tastefully furnished and rooms are clearly above... More
