COTTAGE WITH GARDEN AND WOODBURNER SET ON THE SOLWAY COAST

The spacious detached chocolate box property with large garden is perfect for large family gatherings. Situated in the centre of the quaint village of Glasson, close to the Solway.

The pretty wildflower borders in the garden of this beautiful country cottage will appeal to those with a love for the natural world, and the lawned gardens to those who appreciate the outdoors from a comfy chair. The location is superb, particularly for a group of family or friends who enjoy the rich rhythms of hiking or biking. Solway Coast is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the small village of Glasson, with a country pub and local shops, sits comfortably within. You can set off directly from the doorstep if you choose, there are fabulous wildlife viewing opportunities in the surrounding countryside and plenty of places for children and dogs to run free.

The party always ends up in the kitchen and this farmhouse style space includes a table large enough for all to gather around. A great social space to share stories over dinner and plan the next days activities over a leisurely breakfast. You can join in the banter whilst cooking, with enough space for a catch up on gossip and a glass of fizz while cooking up a storm between you. For warmer days you could move out to the large enclosed garden and dine al fresco while the dogs and children play ball games. The cottage is spacious enough for you all to relax after a day of windswept exhilaration, comfy sofas to sink into and cottage style bedrooms to rest and refresh weary souls. There is a bathroom on both floors to make life easy. On a clear night this is a perfect spot to introduce everyone to star gazing and bring fresh colour to their world. This cottage is tastefully decorated with a light and welcoming feel to it.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The Cumbrian Cycle trail passes through this area and is located on the western end of Hadrian's Wall path. Further afield is Carlisle (11 miles) if you need supplies. There is so much to discover here – you will need to plan a return visit.

Booked this cottage for a New Year break for 4 adults and 5 children (although to be fair 4 of the 5 children are adult size). We had a lovely time and the cottage definitely benefitted from modern upgrades such as powerful WiFi and Hive heating system. Very secluded although everything you need is accessible by car and the kitchen comes with everyRead morething you will need. There is a dining room that snuggly seared all of us for meals and a bit enough TV for everyone to be able to view. Hide

We all had a lovely time at the cottage. It was big enough for our party of 9 and excellent location for lots of walks.

The cottage is very characterful and has a feel of a family home which has been given a new life as a holiday home. The accommodation was comfortable but felt 'lived-in' more so than some other cottages. This is not intended as a criticism merely a comparison with some cottages which present themselves as boutique. There was plenty of room for the Read more6 of us but larger groups may struggle with bathroom and cooking space. The living room and separate dining room would easily fit up to 10. Hide

This cottage is spacious with a large well equipped kitchen, comfortable lounge and good sized bedrooms with plenty of wardrobe space. The whole house is comfortably decorated and there are good sized gardens at the front and rear and plenty of car parking space.

There were only 4 of us and two dogs so there was plenty of space. We found the furnishings to be comfortable as were the beds. In terms of location, Glasson is in a very quiet area with little traffic and village shops are few and far between. The nearby estuary is spectacular (but take care on the sands) and Hadrian's Wall Walk starts/ends in neaRead morerby Bowness on Solway. If you're seeking tourist attractions then you'll have to travel south to Keswick or west to Carlisle. Hide

Perfect for our needs as a large family of 4 adults, 4 children and a small dog. Great childrens play park 50 meters away with no road to cross. Pity the local pub has closed down.

A beautiful cottage in a wonderful location. The owners were very attentive to all our needs and went out of their way to make sure that we had a perfect holiday. We spent many evenings sat in the stunning gardens and enjoyed walking in the nearby Glasson Moss. We will certainly be back!

This a beautiful cottage set in a lovely garden. There is plenty of room for young children to play safely on the front lawn, and there's a large playground opposite the pub. As the road is fairly quiet the garden is a peaceful, private space to relax in. We loved the layout of the cottage and the original features it has, and although a little basRead moreic in places, it accommodated the whole family comfortably.

This was a perfect cottage for a get-together with friends for a few days. Plenty of room to cook in the kitchen and to relax in the main sitting room and the woodburner worked well when the weather turned. The owner was great with communication/instructions. The recommendation for eating/drinking in the Highland Laddie pub was spot on - super foodRead more and atmosphere. Although only 2 bathrooms, there are basins in 2 of the bedrooms so for everyone to get ready for a wedding was no problem at all! Hide
