Southwaite Green lies on the North Western edge of the Lake District, 5 minutes from Cockermouth and 20 to 30 minutes from Keswick, driving. Cockermouth is a lovely 40 minute walk across the fields, beside the river.
Cockermouth is a beautiful little Georgian town with art galleries, museums, cafes, pubs and its own auction house, as well as shops and a supermarket. Keswick is a popular tourist destination on Derwentwater, a little larger than Cockermouth, with plenty to see do, eat and drink.
