Interaction with Guests
I will interact with you as much or as little as you like. Some guests are very happy to keep to their room and enjoy a quiet stay while others like to sit downstairs and talk to us over the kitchen table.
The town of Cleator Moor is small and everything is within walking distance. We are on the edge of town called Wath Brow made famous by the artist Lowry who painted the church in 1948. Even if you are not a serious walker, there are plenty of short and easy walks that provide lovely views of the Lake District Fells. I will be happy to lend you a map and suggest walks to you. There is also a nearby Nature Reserve (once a quarry) where there are rare flowers and fossils can be seen. The best thing about our location is that you can walk to the beach in an hour or walk to Ennerdale Lake in an hour so it really is easy to enjoy your time here.
Parking is on the road in front of the house.
Travelling by public transport there is a bus at least every 30 min but more frequent in the day. You can catch buses to Whitehaven, Egremont, Workington and Cockermouth direct from Cleator Moor.
If travelling from the airport, it is easiest to take the train to Whitehaven and then catch a bus or take a short taxi ride to Cleator Moor.

Merci pour vos bons conseils de restaurant! et le pret de la carte détaillée pour nos randos.
Une bonne adresse à recommander.
My mum and I had a lovely short stay with Yvonne (and her gorgeous little one). We felt very welcome and found it a relaxing space after some busy days. The house is lovely - spotlessly clean - and wonderfully convenient for exploring the area. Super!
Yvonne made a welcome. room was warm and comfortable. Lovely big modern bathroom. We enjoyed out stay, local recommended restaurant was good.
Yvonne is a lovely host. She responded to messages very quick, I was always kept in the loop of what was going on and she was very flexible and able to accommodate our needs, due to a late arrival and an early departure.
The house itself is beautiful, set in a quaint little village with plenty of pubs and restaurants nearby.
Yvonne and her husband made us feel very welcome. It was the perfect place to stay for our family. Thank you
