Had the most relaxing week this week. The cottage had everything we needed home from home. Double oven, washing machine, dishwasher etc. The wet room was brill for washing sandy paws from the main beach, which is only 3 -5 minutes drive.

Brenda (owner) called to ensure we were happy. We have already rebooked! Hide

The cottage was lovely, and have everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, but unfortunately I hadn't realised just how far away Allonby was from the areas we were planning to visit. You must be prepared to travel if you're staying here.

Thank you so much for a fantastic weeks holiday. We absolutely loved the cottage and thought the location was amazing. The views over the cow field were awesome and it was so lovely to have a private dog- safe patio outside too.

Stayed here for 3 nights in July with my husband and our little dog. The cottage was absolutely lovely and was perfect for what we needed. The cottage is very close to the beach, a couple of minutes drive away but you could walk to it as well. It was very clean and tidy and the beds were comfortable.
