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.

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.

Brilliant small cottage for exploring when you have dogs!

Reviewed by ELAINE 21st October 2018

An outstanding property with every amenity you could think of. It was lovely and clean on arrival and the key was left in a key safe which was very convenient. The views from the cottage were amazing with cows right next to us in the field. A good location for the lakes and a nice short walk to Allonby where there is a pub (dog friendly), a chip shRead moreop and local shop. An ideal cottage to take the dogs as it is all wood floors and easy to keep clean. Hide

Place was in a lovely setting, backing onto fields with cows. Homely setting with all adequate amenities. Furniture could do with updating. However overall lovely, bedroom was nicely decorated with lovely bed linen.
