This cottage was absolutely lovely. It was exactly like the pictures. The cottage was truly dog friendly - no carpet and had a wet room which was great for washing off sand paws from visiting the beach. The owners were really lovely and although it is a working farm, you really didnt notice. We will definitely look at going back

Lovely cottage about 10-15 minutes walk from Allonby itself. Very cosy but equipped with everything that you would need. It was the perfect retreat for Christmas and the views are lovely too. We had been let down on our original booking (not via holiday cottages!) so booked this last minute and I'm so glad we did. The people that let us down did usRead more a huge favour. Hide

The cottage is very cosy and clean, exactly what you look for in a country retreat. It is based on the edge of a farm but we found this to be great - there wasnt much farmyard noise, just a really nice feeling of being away from the city.
