Fantastic accommodation in a nice place.

Reviewed by Beth-ann 30th December 2019

Cottage was very comfortable and cosy. Only complaint is the low ceiling in the bathroom but all facilities were great. Lovely kitchen. Very cosy gas burner in the front room and fast wifi. Great location for walks, can recommend Manryport and Ennerdale Water. Be aware that to walk to the beach you will have to walk on the road for a little bit.

This was a beautiful cottage in a lovely peaceful spot although within easy reach of the beach and other lovely coastal towns. Ideal if you have a dog. Approx 30 minute drive to the larger lakes.

The location was perfect, quiet, middle of nowhere ideal for hassle free quiet break. Nice walks on the beach and time just to slow down and take in the scenery and chillout. Nice little town to visit is Maryport.

The cottage was an ideal base to explore the northern lakes and only a short walk to the Beach at Allonby. We were lucky in that we had access to the large rear garden as the larger property was empty and this really suited the dog !
