A large 18th-century cottage boasting incredible sea views over the Solway Estuary, this is the perfect base for walkers, cyclists and nature enthusiasts to return to after a day exploring.

Traditional decor and 18th-century charm await in this historic cottage, a seafront property with space for ten guests to call their own. Ideally suited to long days of exploring Cumbria’s dramatic coastline and the Lake District National Park’s ever-changing scenery, the property also allows you to bring along four dogs and roam the area with man’s best friend loyally by your side. After adventure-packed days, you’ll be keen to head home and unwind, sitting together to enjoy a hearty meal in the dining room or binge-watching a box set on the Smart TV in the lounge.

Well-appointed with a farmhouse aesthetic and antique furnishings, a stay in this property offers a calming atmosphere and interiors that are made for relaxing. Wake up each morning to sea views and prepare for an adventure-driven day ahead. If you’re getting the whole family together to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, allow the guests of honour to claim the luxurious double bedroom with its majestic four-poster bed. Always a delight to wake up to each morning, this calming bedroom is a treat to call your own. The entire family can meet downstairs and enjoy a generous breakfast at the dining table, fuelling up for coastal or countryside expeditions that may last right up until teatime. The traditional country kitchen is on-hand for preparing all three meals of the day, complete with a large electric oven for ensuring enough food is prepared and a breakfast table so that the busy chef can be kept company. As day turns to night, you’ll find plenty of space to relax together as a group, whether that’s in the comfortable living room with Netflix and Prime-ready TV, or the rear courtyard soaking up some sun.

Would suit parties no bigger than 6 we struggled with 10 of us. Front room is small and only seats 6. Top floor isn't suitable for children (or adults at night) as they could fall over small wall. Location is very quite probably better in summer ( we stayed Christmas/NY) everything was closed local chip shop is open 5.30 till 7.30 in evenings and sRead moremall shop but that's it. Beach is quite muddy again probably time of year. Would suit people who want a quite break but not families with kids. Hide
