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

lovely cottage next to a working farm. lovely retreat within walking distance to the town centre which has a beach and pubs and chip shop and shop, advisable to take essentials with you as small shop. road way down to town centre has no pavement but only short walk and we managed it with our dog.

Rural location with a twist! This property is located on a working farm with a terrace facing the sheep paddocks. It is small, but comfy and warm with everything you could want in a property. We stayed as a couple with our two German Shorthaired Pointers and we loved it. The kitchen is modern and has a dishwasher and all modern cooking equipment. TRead morehe bedroom is a good size with a double bed and a single bed. Large wetroom and a washing machine. A great place to stay. 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.

Reviewed by Jane, 30th August 2019

Really enjoyed our stay here. The cottage had all the facilities you would want, very comfortable and nicely decorated & the owner very friendly and approachable. The beach was fantastic. Lovely quiet area with friendly people and no litter.

Rural farm location near Allonby Beach but adjacent building work converting another barn resulted in extra morning noise to add to tractors and rooks! Interior needs modernising.

Reviewed by Chris, 11th May 2019

Very nice location, cottage was very clean and ideal for visiting the lakes, I can't think of anything that the cottage requires, everything is there. There's not a lot in Allonby itself but Maryport is only 15 mins drive away. Brenda (the owner) is very helpful with anything. Will definitely recommend to friends/family.

Reviewed by Jacqueline, 3rd May 2019

The property was a small clean, comfortable and peaceful cottage. Ideal as that was what we were looking for. It is a ten minute stroll into Allonby where you will only find basic amenities. There is no local supermarket or corner shop. So big suggestion make sure you take essential with you.
