As previous reviewers have highlighted, if this is your first trip to Cockley Beck it may be advisable to take the A595 as your first route inbound, the Wrynose Pass is not for the more inexperienced driver.. ..
The cottage itself is fantastic.
All modern amenities are available, the kitchen is well equipped, and the living area is clean and well set out with the addition of a wood-burning stove. The bedroom is cozy (the bed was comfy & warm) with plenty of storage, and the bathroom is, well, a bathroom (and yes the shower does work and is perfectly fine - just watch yourself when setting the water temperature, the hot water is extremely hot).
At the back is a parking area with a large garden which is fenced in to keep your dog(s) from wandering and mithering any of the local sheep.
Did I mention that the cottage is a little remote though?
Well it is, so be prepared...
The cottage basically sits at the intersection between the Wrynose Pass, and the Hardknott Pass.
The nearest pub, the Newfield Inn is approx. 4 miles from the cottage (a nice stroll itself) and serves good food and ale.
If walking is your game (it is mine), then the walks from the front door are great, just keep your dog on a lead and shut the gates behind you!
All the fells are close by, including my favourite Harrison Stickle, and Ambleside / Coniston are not far away at all.
Wonderful, quiet cottage, with great hosts - would I recommend?
A definite yes
