Wordsworth House and Garden
#1 of 8 Sights & Landmarks in Cockermouth
... can feel and imagine them there during that time period ~ enthusiastic docents ~ we had the added bonus of seeing the Beatrix Potter 150th Anniversary exhibit ~ pleasant, homey gardens and a view of the river ~
From the real food laid out on the tables and cooked on site, to the dressing up boxes in the house, to the apples brought in from the orchard garden, this house delights and educates.

Excellent historical view of the town of Cockermouth
On a fine summer evening after a good meal it is very pleasant to wander around the streets of Cockermouth and view the many ancient buildings in the main street and alongside the river.
St James’ Church Buttermere

Charming little gem of a Church with great views and a porch with a lovely wrought iron shepherds gate.
The stainglass windows are amazing and the view to haystacks is sublime.
