We stayed for 6 nights in a spacious room with all facilities - large clean bathroom, heated towel rail, great shower, hair dryer, - even an alarm clock. Tea/coffee/chocolate for the making PLUS biscuits and sweets. The breakfast (full English) was personally prepared according to the...

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.

I Stay here for both business & pleasure. I can't heap enough praise on Alan & Angela for running a great place with the best breakfast. Friendly with excellent facilities, parking is just around the corner at the leisure centre & the use of the gym or a swim is included if you want. It's hard to beat!

We stayed for two midweek nights, on arrival we were greeted like friends by Alan tnen Angela popped in to say hello as we were checking in. Alan then hauled our bags to our room, Latrigg, on the top floor. The room had everything we needed for our short stay including a heated towel rail that actually worked. We were...

Only a 1 night stay whilst working in the area but it's nice to be booked in such special warm, comfortable and clean B&B. located in a perfect spot, just off the market place and close to pubs and restaurants. I will be back whenever working in the area.

A lovely building; very tastefully decorated; clean comfortable room. All in all a great B&B. Special mention to the owners (I've forgotten their names, sorry!) who make you feel very welcome indeed without being intrusive in any way; they are both very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was top-notch. And if you include the very reasonable prices: it's an excellent...

Really cannot fault this B&B in any way or the hosts, Angela and Alan. Spacious room, great shower, superb breakfasts, nothing was a problem, any issues/needs always accomodated etc. Unlike some B&Bs you never felt like you were staying in someone's home!! Cockermouth is a great little town and well suited if you fancy walking in the lakes. Tom

We came up to Cockermouth for a new year wedding. We had never visited the area before and booked 6 Castlegate online, not really having a clue what to expect. Alan & Angela exceeded our expectations. They have a charming property, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, and centrally located just a short stroll away from all the shops and eateries of...

We stayed at Six Castlegate on a wild, wet January night recently and couldn't have had a warmer welcome, more comfortable room or better breakfast. Thanks to Alan and Angela for looking after us so well and making their guest house a delight to the eye. Wendy M
