Visiting my home town we decided to book Six Castlegate as it is in the centre of town. Warm welcome, fantastic Georgian home, surprisingly spacious room & a wonderful hearty breakfast. The decor, service & attention to detail was fantastic. What more could you ask for.

A really friendly & welcoming place to stay. Stayed in Blencathra, a spacious room with a giant bed that made getting up a struggle, but with a nice on-suite. Kept being late for breakfast due to looking out across the rooftops & the views beyond. Breakfast was great, fresh fruits a must but loads of other choices. The place has...

I have enjoyed several stops at this fantastic b&b with my wife and friends over several years now, and it simply gets better every time. From the beautifully furnished rooms, the fine details of every thing is simply unique. My favourite suite is Blencathra : spacious, superb views, pure elegance.

We just wanted to say that this is simply the best b&b we have ever stayed in - and we've stayed in quite a few. Cockermouth is a delightful town and Six Castlegate couldn't be better situated to make the most of the town, during the day and in the evening as it is so central. If you enjoy eating...

We stayed here as the trout hotel, where we usually stay, was fully booked. We were amazed by everything, the decor, cleanliness, the selection and quality of the breakfast and the price. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again or recommend it.
