Wordsworth House and Garden, the childhood home of William Wordsworth in the market town of Cockermouth, is also less than 10 minutes' drive away.

"With vast stretches of open water, forests and lush green scenery, the Lake District is one of Britain's favourite tourist spots", says the Daily MailCheck out our list of 101 Things to do in the Lake District for further inspiration.

Good quality accommodation, in a nice location
Other Comments
The catering arrangements were totally unsatisfactory for this hotel. We would not eat in the Tavern ever again. Very limited menu, some of which wasn’t available and generally a poor standard.
