The Railway Carriage

Cockermouth, Cumbria
Unique Retreat

A unique opportunity to stay in this former Pullman 1952 railway carriage in the Cumbrian village of Cockermouth. A wonderful couples retreat sat on the banks of the River Marron with wonderful river views.

Stepping up a small flight of metal stairs which lead you to the entrance of the carriage. The lounge area welcomes you with open arms with comfortable seating surrounded by windows which overlook the river.

There is a TV/DVD in the lounge area providing the perfect escape to relax in after a day exploring the local countryside. There is also a quirky bar so don’t forget to bring a bottle of fizz to celebrate that special occasion.

There is a dressing cabin with dressing table where you can store your bags and hang your clothes. Leading along to the bedroom, which is a snug space consumed by the romantic bespoke double bed. To the end of the carriage is the shower-room with WC.

Outside there is a raised decking area accessed from the side of the carriage with bistro seating and wonderful views over the river.

Location

Ullock is a great starting point to explore the Western Lake District and coast. There are an abundance of stunning countryside walks from the doorstep. Loweswater Lake, and Ennerdale Water are a short drive away, both lakes enjoy a certain solitude that can sometimes be hard to find in the Lake District.

There are a couple of pubs within a few miles of the cottage, so there’s no need to argue over the washing up. For shops, Cockermouth is close by and has a wide variety of small independent shops, pubs and cafes. Here you can take a tour round the Jennings Brewery or visit the Kirkgate Centre which doubles up as a theatre and cinema.
