Newest Review: ... of summer especially after one o'clock. There is a lovely little tea room here, and I can recommend the scones but be prepared to pay a bit over the odds. The streets are full of quaint little shops and coffee shops and of course a couple of old worldly style pubs. In the summer months it is nice to sit outside with a beer and just watch the world go by. The Castle is at the eastern end of ... more

Cockermouth is a market town on the edge of the Lake District 8 miles east of Workington on the A66 and a very pretty place to visit. Wordsworth House, the birthplace of the poet William Wordsworth is a must to look round Open April-Oct, Mon-Fri, and Sat in June-Aug, 10:30-4:30 but I do advise you to go early because it is only a small house and gets very crowded in the height of summer especially after one o'clock.

When we arrived in this lovely town I was struck by it's beauty. I am glad we chose this gorgeous place for our honeymoon. Of course everytime we told someone where we were going we were greeted by a barage of giggles or a "what an apt name for a honeymoon". Set at the north of the lake district it is surrounded by stunning scenery. Huge hills and deep valleys. Winding roads lead through these hills. The Lakes (Bassenthwaite being the nearest) are just as stunning. There is a calmness about the lakes. Now I know that foot and mouth has effected the area but you wouldn't know it from the number of sheep and cows that were milling around ... Read the complete review

Cockermouth is a town with what some consider having a funny name. I don't know why this is, personally I wouldn't laugh at hearing it for the first time, but lets face it, I bet you're sitting there, gathering your friends and telling them how you just discovered this really funny place name. Cockermouth is situated on the very edge of the Lake District National Park, and so has some very nice scenery to offer. It's relatively small, around three miles, so there isn't really a lot on offer for the locals, but don?t worry, there is plenty for tourists to see and do. I should probably mention that is expanding, recently opening up an Aldi and ... Read the complete review

Before you say anything this the real name for a town in CUM bria. Yes, funny isn’t it but you try living here and then see what you think. No, seriously though Cockermouth is a small town situated in the north west of England just outside of the Lake District National Park. This means that you have the beautiful scenery of the mountains and lakes just outside your front door, and yet you don’t have as many of the tourists of most of the towns inside the National Park. As things stand though Cockermouth is attracting more and more tourists each year as it is set in such a beautiful place. Cockermouth is also the birth place of a famous poet ...

The Lake District is an area of natural beauty, situated in Northern England. I myself am from this area, and am writing this to inform people of what this area has to offer. I am from a small market town called Cockermouth, situated just outside the lake district but still very popular with the tourists. Cockermouth has many tourist attractions on offer, such as Wordsworth House, where a famous poet was born, The Sheep and Wool Centre which informs people about the history of Cumbria and well, Sheep! For the younger people, there is many pubs, about 20 in all, all of differing standards, and thre is one pub/club called Sames, which is the only place ... Read the complete review
