Offering the best of both worlds, Coldgill View sleeps up to seven guests in four bedrooms (two en-suites) and is perfectly placed for exploring the many attractions of both the Cumbrian Coast and the Lake District National Park. Well presented, Coldgill View is popular with families, friends and pet owners at any time of the year and sits in the Cumbrian village of Great Broughton, just a short car ride from the historic market town of Cockermouth (five minutes' drive), Bassenthwaite Lake (ten minutes), the seaside town of Maryport (ten minutes) and Keswick (fifteen minutes).
With fabulous uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside, including the River Derwent and fells of the Northern Lakes beyond, Coldgill View enjoys a quiet position to one end of the village and is within walking distance of the Broughton Craggs Hotel serving good value food. It has a contemporary decor with all the comforts of home, and has a log burner for cosy winter breaks and a secure garden with decking area for soaking up the sunshine (and glorious views!) in the summer months.
The surrounding countryside, Solway Coast and fells of the Lake District offer endless opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts. Enjoy wonderful walks straight from the front door, go sailing on Bassenthwaite Lake, fishing at Pennybridge, cycling the country lanes or Coast to Coast for more of a challenge, or horse riding / quad biking at Welllington Farm, Cockermouth.
For day trips out, there are plenty of places to visit in the local area whether it rains or shines. For inclement days, the Wordsworth Museum in Cockermouth, the Pencil Museum in Keswick, the Sea Life Centre in Maryport, Jennings Brewery tour (or the Lakes Distillery in Bassenthwaite) and the climbing wall in Keswick are amongst the many popular choices; or for when the sun shines, take a lake tour from Keswick launch, hire a boat / canoe from the marina, visit the Lake District Wildlife Park or simply lace up your walking boots and set off and explore.
Slightly further afield but still within easy driving distance are a multitude of other attractions including Dove Cottage, the home of Wordsworth; Grizedale Forest and Go Ape; Coniston Water; picturesque Grasmere; the beach at St Bees Head; Ravensglass Railway and Hadrian's Wall to name just a few.
Whether you want to walk, cycle, explore or simply relax, Coldgill View provides a welcoming holiday retreat at any time of the year.
