About Cooper Cottage

Cooper Cottage was built around 1838 & was the home of John Ray & his son Irving who were both very well respected stonemasons & sculptors. Many of their works can be seen in & around Wigton & a few features can be seen around the cottage & garden.

The property is traditionally built in sandstone & has been tastefully renovated keeping the charm of the period. The accommodation comprises a sitting room with log burner, reception room with digital TV, galley kitchen, dining area, 2 double bedrooms, bathroom with shower.

Cycles can be safely stored in the hallway. All bedding & towels are provided. Full broadband facilities. View our video on Facebook.

Hadrian’s Wall Walk

The HADRIAN’S WALL PATH runs between Bowness-on- Solway on the Cumbrian coast & continues for 84 miles finishing in Wallsend on Tyneside. The start at Bowness is only a 20 minute drive away from Wigton & is certainly worth making the effort to walk the first part of the historic Roman wall path built in AD122.
