Allerdale Court Hotel & Blocks Steakhouse Best Hotel & Restaurant – Cumbria Aug22112 In the North-western corner of Cumbria’s mythic Lake District National Park, you’ll find the picturesque market town of Cockermouth. Dating all the way back to Roman times, the town is brimming with history and culture. Today Cockermouth retains much of its Georgian architecture. As well as the ruins of Cockermouth Castle, visitors can also see Wordsworth House, the birthplace of English poet William Wordsworth. The area provides unlimited possibilities for exploration too. Ramble over Sale Fell, or climb to the top of Watch Hill where you can see over to Scotland on a clear day. Or try sightseeing on two wheels on the managed cycle trails of the nearby Setmurthy and Whinlatter Forests. Keeping with tradition, the town is the site of a regular Arts & Crafts market as well as the Cockermouth Country Market, both popular with tourists and locals alike. In the heart of Cockermouth, close to the confluence of the Rivers Cocker and Derwent, you’ll find the Allerdale Court Hotel. Hotel Director, Kay Carlin, has been at the helm since 2001. In that time the hotel has built a reputation for its friendly demeanour, great facilities, and handy location. Built over 300 years ago, the hotel boasts many original features including oak beams and rustic wood panelling. The recently refurbished bedrooms are both stylish and comfortable. Catering for groups of up to 40 people, the hotel accommodates corporate clients, explorers, honeymooners, and families – with ease. The Allerdale Court Hotel has something for everyone. Staff will even set up a special poochy breakfast in The Snug for you and your dog – to make sure no one gets left out. And, if you’re going out for the day, why not take one of the hotel’s packed lunches with you on an adventure? Having great local connections, including Keswick and Cockermouth Golf Clubs and Go Ape at Whinlater and Grizedale, the Allerdale Court Hotel also offers discounts for clients booking their next golf break, high ropes course, or Segway experience. And when you’re back after a stimulating day of activities and exploration, why not relax in the hotel’s onsite bar and restaurant, BLOCKS Steakhouse? Voted ‘Best Steakhouse in Cumbria’ for 3 years running by LUXlife, BLOCKS has an equally impressive 5.0 rating on TripAdvisor with over 650 reviewers rating it as ‘Excellent’.
