Eat, drink, shop, explore – that’s the strapline Cockermouth folks use to promote the town, and it’s the perfect place to do all of that. It’s packed with independent businesses, from the most practical or beautiful of retailers, to great restaurants, cafes, takeaways, quirky bars and proper pubs.

You can eat your way around the globe here – from Cumbria to China, Thailand to Turkey, and all the bits in between. If you love to cook, find the butchers, the fishmonger, the bakeries or the deli, as well as supermarkets for those all important staples.

The shopping is special – from toys and shoes, to clothes and homewares, as well as things for the garden and loads of unique gifts.

There are all the professional services you need for everyday life, whether that’s estate agents and solicitors, financial assistance or car repairs, loads of experts like architects, IT specialists and more.

Cockermouth is the birthplace of William Wordsworth – the National Trust opens his former house to the public Wordsworth House and Garden | Lake District | National Trust – and it’s the home of the biggest Taste Cumbria food festival.

Located just on the edge of the Lake District, the town’s biggest fans say they wouldn’t live anywhere else. And why would you move when you can be at the beach or on a lakeshore in 15 minutes or up a fell in five? It’s an ideal gateway to the Cumbrian coast, and to discover the quieter side of the Lakes, with hotels, B&Bs and self catering accommodation galore.

Come and discover Cockermouth. Maybe you’ll never want to leave…
