    “We love staying at Dale View.”

    The views are wonderful, the walks lovely and the pool is a terrific bonus. We had lots of enjoyable family time. Keith, the owner, is very responsive to any equipment problems we might have.

    The views are wonderful, the walks lovely and the pool is a terrific bonus. We had lots of enjoyable family time. Keith, the owner, is very responsive to any equipment problems we might have. The kitchen is modern and very well equipped and there is loads of space. There’s are lots of places for coffee/meals and family activities. This is just a beautiful area to stay in. We are coming back next year. It is now easy to book online.

The property

Cockermouth 4.3 miles. Set in an ideal position within the quaint village of Embleton, Dale View is a picturesque cottage providing the ultimate base for any escape to the Lake District. Beautifully appointed with many characterful features, this charming single-storey dwelling is perfectly suited to family and friends alike. Step inside this warm and homely dwelling, making yourself feel right at home in the attractive living/dining room as you rest and recuperate on one of the two plush sofas and keep your feet nice and toasty from the heat of the log effect electric fire. Gather with loved ones at the dining table as you indulge in a hearty family feast, lovingly prepared in the well-equipped country kitchen with the help of the many handy appliances that lie within. Continue the festivities with drinks out in the garden, watching as the sun sets on another glorious day before returning indoors to one of the three darling bedrooms comprising two king-sizes (one with en-suite shower room) and a twin. The bedrooms are served by a gorgeous family bathroom, a wonderful space to relax and unwind as you soak in the spacious tub or freshen up with a rinse under the shower. Make the most of your surroundings with a swim in the fabulous heated indoor pool, before washing your costumes in the well-designed utility room or enjoying a moment of peace in the lovely sunroom. See the very best that the Lake District has to offer with days spent exploring the fells, hiking to the peaks of Skiddaw, Blencathra and Scafell Pike, or wandering the spectacular woodlands of Dubwath Silver Meadows Nature Reserve. Climb through the treetops in Whinlatter Forest Park at Go Ape Whinlatter, or admire the breath-taking scenery of the Lake District as you embark on a thrilling cycle. Visit friendly alpaca at The Lakes Distillery, or spot majestic creatures at the Lake District Wildlife Park. Spend the day in the town of Keswick and enjoy tours of the Derwent Pencil Museum, Puzzling Place exhibition and Castlerigg Stone Circle, or head to the coast to the town of Workington to see the Helena Thompson Museum and the Port of Workington. Venture out onto the waters with the Lake District Paddleboarding, or see Derwent Island House, now owned by the National Trust. Travel to the town of Bowness-on-Windermere and see The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction, the Windermere Jetty Museum and Cockshott Point, or venture into the neighbouring town of Ambleside for dinner and drinks before returning to your humble abode.

About the location


Bassenthwaite Lake 7 miles; Keswick 13 miles.

The small country market town of Cockermouth is situated in the quiet north-western part of the Lake District, a largely undiscovered and unspoilt area, yet only 13 miles from Keswick. The town is famous as the birthplace of both William Wordsworth and Fletcher Christian (of Mutiny on the Bounty fame) and Wordsworth’s Georgian family home, on the main street, is now a popular visitor attraction, owned by the National Trust. Cockermouth offers a good variety of shops, pubs and places to eat, but (of course) the main attraction of the area is the beautiful scenery and excellent walking in the northern lakes – Bassenthwaite Lake, Ennerdale Water and Derwent Water.
