This charming property is packed with character and sleeps five guests in comfort, boasting a roaring wood burner, a secret courtyard garden and views towards Morecambe Bay.

Studded on the coastline between Aldingham Beach and Bardsea, Baycliff is a traditional village with a rich fishing history. Your holiday accommodation offers a cosy setting for a family holiday on the Cumbrian coastline, providing sleeping space for up to five guests. The sand and shingle beach is within a 0.5-mile walk, and the village itself is home to a playground and a popular pub. Further afield, the market town of Ulverston is an excellent destination for picking up a few essentials and enjoying the museum, theatre and independent shops. For beach lovers, a 2.5-mile drive in either direction offers lots of potential for walks along the shoreline.

Enter via the sunroom to find the dining room, a comfortable setting for your evening meal with a sofa, dining table, chairs and a bespoke window seat, and there is an adjoining room with a washing machine and WC. Step through the glass-panelled doors and into the lounge ready to light the wood burner and curl up on the sofas. Traditional beams and exposed stone set the scene for relaxed evenings. A narrow, curved passageway leads through to the country cottage-style kitchen with its electric oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, fridge with a small freezer compartment and a view toward the bay. Follow the winding staircase from the lounge up to the first floor, taking great care when walking from room to room as there are uneven spots due to the property’s age. The split-level landing reveals three bedrooms and a handy hanging rail over the stairs for drying clothes. There is a double bedroom with a bed, storage space and a hanging rail, and the master bedroom features a small freestanding clawfoot bath and an alcove that conceals a vanity unit and a washbasin. Further along the hallway, you’ll discover a single room with pretty views, drawers and a hanging rail. A family shower room completes the cottage with a WC and an electric shower.

Outside, the courtyard "yarden" is hidden behind a stone archway and has plant pots and garden furniture for balmy summer evenings. There is off-road parking for one car on the private driveway.

Loveley cottage in a cute village, 5 mins walk to the beach and only a short drive to Ulveston. There is a pub right outside that does some amazing food, well worth a few visits The owner is delightful, we had a family crisis and missed part of our break and she couldnt have been more helpful. Well worth a break here.

A lovely 4 night stay at this charming cottage. Exactly what my wife and I were after. Our twin boys loved the cottage and did not want to go home. Lovely location and Ulverston only 10 mins away. Renee very helpful and had a plumber sent out first thing in the morning for a minor issue. Would recommend this cottage to anyone.

Third year returning love the cottage so full of character. Has a fully equipped kitchen. Thankyou for all the goodies. Renee looks after you, you are able to contact her by text, she advises of places of interest to see as is from there originally. Renee got a new kettle and frying pan for us to use. Love the log burner and bath in the bathroom. LRead moreovely views from cottage. Beds need to be addressed very hard. Great base to explore the Lakes. Did over 900 miles. Hide

Good sized cottage of character, comfortable bedrooms, clean and welcoming. Enjoyed our stay, there's a view of Morecambe bay, ferries to and from Ireland, from some windows. Some noise from regular farm vehicles during their busy season. Easy access to Ulverston and Barrow, for walks, shopping and eating out.

This little visited area of Cumbria is surprisingly lovely. The cottage is in a pretty village by the sea. The parking space is really only suitable for a relatively small car.

Lovely cottage and very clean on arrival. The bottle of wine and cake was a lovely touch and very well appreciated. The owner was really nice to chat to via mail and text, always replying quickly when needed. The Bath in the master bedroom overlooking the sea is really nice. Rooms are a good size for a cottage. Can't fault the cottage at all.
