"Poet's Retreat is a lovely Edwardian terraced home which has been redecorated to a high standard in a modern style inside, with the original fireplaces removed. The rooms are spacious though the staircase is on the steep side, common for properties of this age. If you have very young children you'd want a stair gate at the top of the stairs. The main bathroom is on the ground floor and reached through the kitchen which is a little unusual; children in the front bedroom requiring the toilet at night need either to walk through the other bedroom, or down the stairs and through the kitchen. We found the property was immaculately cleaned. The kitchen is well equipped, and the owner responds quickly to queries raised (we pointed out a couple of snagging defects which are being rectified). The property doesn't have a washing machine or a dryer . There is a line for drying clothes and a laundry shop (not self service) on the same road. The fish and chip shop further down the road serves good scampi.We liked the location as it allowed us to drive easily to Crummock Water avoiding driving through the centre of Cockermouth, but it may not be for everyone (look at the map). It's on quite a busy road and because it is at the edge of the controlled parking there is competition for the free parking spaces in front of the house. The furthest we had to park was less than five minutes walk. The walk to the centre of Cockermouth is down a hill, which has some good coffee shops and restaurants. We liked Wordsworth House. Harris Park with children's playground and also two supermarkets can be reached along a level cycle path that follows a disused railway line (start by walking along the main road away from Cockermouth)."

"Just back from a lovely week's stay in this delightful little cottage. It was comfortable and cosy, combining old world charm with all modern conveniences. Everything needed was provided and the table was set for tea on our arrival with tasty scones.The shaded outdoor seating area was a great advantage too during the recent hot weather. The owner is very friendly and helpful and responds quickly to any enquiries.The location is great, just a short walk from the town with its wide range of shops, cafe and pubs ( highly recommend the Turkish restaurant for its delicious food and friendly service, the great bakery you pass on the walk into town and the Trout Hotel for a drink in its lovely riverside garden). Cockermouth is an ideal base for a holiday in the Lake District as it is near both the coast and the lakes, but is not overrun with visitors in summer as some of the other towns are. We took trips to Carlisle, Penrith, Keswick, Whitehaven, Grasmere, Ambleside and Bowness - all within easy driving distance through lovely scenery. There is even a great bus service which links all the towns ( including a scenic open top bus ) if you don't want to drive. We enjoyed our holiday at Tanner's Cottage very much and will hopefully visit again"

"The cottage was peaceful and the bedrooms lovely and clean. Beds were comfortable and bedrooms very clean. We were disappointed with the out door space. On the advert it is a cottage with garden. Unfortunately it has a small area outside the back door with a small table and 2 chairs. This space is more like a small yard. Definately not a garden so the advert is a bit miss leading. The stairs up to the bedrooms are very steap and we did have to take care as a fall would cause serious injury. Not suitable for the elderly or children. Television was complicated to work and only used the one in the small lounge. I gave a 6 for cleanliness because the fridge was not as clean as it could have been and one of the couches has several long blonde hairs on it. I had to remove them before sitting on it. Bathroom downstairs is not that user friendly as it is located next to the kitchen. Overall the owners have tried to do their best to create a welcoming little holiday house. Hopefully these comment will help to improve how the accommodation is advertised."

"Very small, but, quaint cottage, with history and a lot of potential. We had a problem with an alarm going off, which I couldn't stop. We even had a neighbour at the door, asking if everything was ok. I phoned the owner on her mobile and landline, for advice on how to cancel the alarm, but, didn't get an answer. I left a message and I'm still waiting for a response. The alarm finally stopped of it's own accord. It's a mystery why it went off in the first place. Toaster didn't work. After dragging the wheely bin out on the Tuesday night, as per the instructions. The following morning, I discovered from another neighbour, that the day for bins being emptied, had been changed, to a Thursday. Quite frustrating! As I had to drag the bin back up the overgrown path, then put it back out again, for the Thursday morning. Also, the garden requires a lot of TLC. The various written instructions, around the cottage, need to be updated and made clearer."

"The cottage was located within walking distance of the bars and shops, which was handy. It was clean, cosy and spacious. The area was quiet and peaceful too. We were only left 4 logs for the fire, which is not reflective of a 2 night stay. There was a shed full of logs but we were not provided with the key to access it. There were problems getting the heating on too as the instructions in the manual provided said to override the heating to turn it on but no instructions of how to do this. A heating engineer had to show us how get the heating on, which required buttons pressing at the boiler as well as the temperature gauge being altered on the stairs. We were very cold for a while until the heating engineer was able to assist. We were a little disappointed,cold and inconvenienced considering we'd paid over £100/night for the accommodation."
