Located in the Georgian market town of Cockermouth, this charming 2 bedroom property is part of a former Grammar school listed building.

Located only a few miles from both the Lake District National Park and Solway Coastline, Scholars Cottage is superbly situated for you to enjoy the beautiful scenery of the local area during your staycation.

Scholars Cottage has recently been refurbished to a high standard and we look forward to offering you the perfect home from home experience.

The space
Following an extensive refurb prior to reopening on 1st August 2021, we are so glad to host Scholars Cottage, which is a delightful 2 bedroom property with lovely character features alongside modern facilities.

We are already proud Superhosts of another beautiful air bnb property in Cockermouth so please check out our other listing "Number 60" and be reassured by over 100 of our glowing reviews.

The ground floor of Scholars Cottage is a stylish open plan area consisting of lounge/dining room with 2 and 3 seater sofas, a 41 inch JVC smart TV with Netflix and a dining table and chairs to accommodate 4 people.

This area has stunning original arch windows which leads into a well equipped kitchen with all necessary amenities including dishwasher and washing machine. We provide tea, coffee, sugar and washing up items such as fairy liquid, cloths and tea towels.

Both raised here in Cockermouth, myself and my husband Daniel love living here. Number 60 was our first home together and we spent almost a year lovingly restoring it, transforming it into the stunning little cottage it is today. We now live just a few minutes away from the property with our two young children aged 8 and 3. We feel very privileged to be able to share this unique little holiday home with our guests and hope you love it as much as we do!
