Perfect location
The cottage is so cosy and to be 'snowed in' would be a blessing. We were spoiled for exhilarating walks and climbs. It wasn.t far to Scarfel Pike - the path was lovely. It was perfect and we are looking forward to going again soon. The view of Hard Knott pass was interesting, as we watched cars go up and down on the ice! The Beck is beautiful and very calming to listen to and we loved watching the Herdwick sheep right outside the windows, as well as a Barn owl. We drove 12 miles one evening to the Black Cock in Broughton and enjoyed a really good meal. Totally amazing

Second time here, won?t be the last
Excellent base for most of the Southern fells. Friendly hosts, comfortable accommodation, good amenities and most importantly, beautifully remote. Highly recommended

Remote cottage in the stunningly beautiful Duddon Valley
The views and walks from the door of this cottage are breathtaking. It nestles next to the River Duddon itself with the Hardknott and Wrynose Passes at the junction over the packhorse bridge. Idyllic setting with a landscape which changes its mood according to the weather. The accomodation is comfortable and adequate, the kitchen area in particular is very well-equipped...a second sofa or armchair would be a bonus in the sitting area. The walks direct from the door in every direction give the most incredible views, and plenty of exercise!

An amazing cottage
For lovers of fells and fell walking this is the place. We walked from the cottage to the summit of Scafell Pike. The cottage is spacious, fully equipped with everything you need and lovely and clean. A lovely wood burning stove to make the cottage cosy in the evening. The owners are friendly and helpful. There is a book written by a writer who stayed in the cottage. Cockley Beck: A Celebration Of Lakeland In Winter by John Pepper

Peaceful cottage with stunning views
Cockley beck cottage is located in the duddon valley at the foot of Hardknott pass & Wrynose pass. Beautiful remote location ideal if you are a keen walker/cyclist & you want to get away from it all. The cottage is well equipped & the log burner was a greatly appreciated addition. The only downside is the shower has poor water pressure but that is hardly the end of the world. Don't use sat nav to get there as it will take it over wrynose pass which is not for the faint hearted. Approaching from the A595 after Broughton-in -Furness take a right turn at the traffic lights signposted Seathwaite & follow this mainly single track road for 11 miles to reach the cottage. The owner lives in the farmhouse connected to the cottage & is always on hand if you have any concerns.
