Stay at an award-winning hotel in the heart of a beautiful Cumbrian market town, with breakfast, dinner, half-price entry to The Lakes Distillery and more

Watched over by a dramatic swathe of Cumbrian mountainside, Cockermouth perfectly combines traditional charm with the ancient influences of Mother Nature herself. To enjoy both, try The Trout Hotel. Lying in the town’s centre and built in 1670, it retains an old-world appeal meticulously updated with velvety modern interiors – think sumptuous beds and fine fusion cuisine behind a classic Georgian facade. It's located just a skipping stone’s throw from the River Derwent to the north, while the sprawling majesty of the Lake District National Park lies shimmering under 20 minutes’ drive away.

The Trout Hotel encapsulates a local appreciation for both the dramatically scenic and the beguilingly luxurious, with a lush courtyard from which to enjoy twittering of birdsong over a glass of locally-produced gin and tonic or organic beer. The choices are diverse and invariably impressive, whether you drive 40 minutes to Solway Coast for prehistorically rugged shorelines, travel 20 minutes to take in the glassy beauty of Crummock Water and its mountainous surroundings, or simply nip outside into Cockermouth itself, to make the most of the town's culinary and antique persuasion. The hotel has garnered a plethora of accolades, including a Visit England Gold Award in 2017.

We like

  • Visiting the nearby Lakes Distillery or Jennings Brewery, to see our evening tipple in mid-production
  • The location – it's the starting point for some of the UK's finest natural beauty, from the peaks of Wetherlam to the shores of Lake Windermere
  • Slipping through the cobbled streets of historic Cockermouth, to explore its modern galleries, quirky shops and tea rooms
