Quiet location which was an ideal base to explore Cumbria from. Allonby Bay has a massive beach area (2 mins away) ideal for walking our dog. Local Pub has good menu and fine selection of beers (dog friendly also) Fish shop served massive portions of Fish and chips. Enjoyable stay and tours around the lakes and coastline.

The cottage was much better than expected. It doesn't look like a twee, 'chocolate box' cottage from the outside but it is well appointed, comfortable and so peaceful. We had one of the best Lakes holidays ever! Lack of headroom in the bathroom if you're above six feet tall but it's a cottage - just take care! The owner, Brenda was welcoming, frienRead moredly and helpful. Brilliant!! Hide

The cottage looked uninviting as we approached but once inside we realized just how lucky we were to have chosen it. We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful farmers wife who helped with the temperamental gas fire and even provided an electric alternative just in case ! The location was a bit distant for visiting some of the lakes but we shouRead moreld have checked this before booking . The only disappointment was the weather! Hide

A lovely, cosy cottage in a quiet rural location. Very suitable for dogs as it has an enclosed garden and nearby dog friendly beach. Location is quite distant from the main Lake District but fairly near to Hadrian's Wall and Scottish Borders. All in all, really enjoyed our stay here.
