A Self-Catering Holiday Cottage in Cockermouth, Cumbria
A holiday cottage located in the conservation area of the stunning Georgian Market Town of Cockermouth, 37 Kirkgate is a Georgian town house built circa 1750 that is situated on a cobbled and tree lined period street within walking distance of Cockermouth town centre. Located on the edge of the Lake District National Park in North West Cumbria, the town is only a short drive away from the Lorton Valley, Crummock Water, Buttermere and Bassenthwaite Lake.
The history of Cockermouth dates back to Roman times and was established as a market town in the early thirteenth century. This Gem Town was also the birthplace of William and Dorothy Wordsworth. Cockermouth (or 'mouth of the Cocker') developed at the confluence of the Rivers Cocker and Derwent. The Cocker's name comes from the Celtic word "Kukrã" meaning the crooked one.
