“Excellent facilities for stress-free mini-break”
Reviewed 27 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

Luxury cosy cottage in an area of outstanding beauty. This is the perfect retreat when you feel the urge to recharge. From booking to arriving to staying there -everything was stress-free. The view is outstanding and good to watch in all weathers. Recommend that you bring your basic provisions (or stop in ASDA at Carlisle) as the village does not have a shop. The village does have a decent walkers pub in the Kings Arms which serves good food and great beer. The cottage itself is exceedingly well equipped - loads of crockery, full range of tip-top appliances- and felt like a home from home. There books, maps, walking routes, DVD, CDs and board games to keep you entertained. The wi-fi is free but does drop away sometimes, which is a good excuse to step away from the e-mail or the game station! The beds are exceptionally comfy and come complete with an electric blanket. The coastal walk from the doorstep of the cottage is lovely and there are plenty of interesting day-trips within 40 mins drive. The owners live next door and are very helpful and work hard to keep the cottage in tip-top condition.

“Fantastic views from a superb cottage”

Had a wonderful week away here - views are amazing and can't get over how high spec this cottage is - the kitchen is better equipped than our own!
The huge glass doors allow you to enjoy the scenery even in poor weather and the high quality TVs, bluray, sound systems etc. mean you will be entertained in all weathers!
Would recommend:
Nearby RSPB Campfield Marsh reserve
Wallsend Tea Rooms (Bowness)
Kings Arms (Bowness)
Hope and Anchor (nearby Port Carlisle - locally sourced food, gorgeous meals and amazing homemade desserts)

Just returned from the most amazing cottage probably the best we have ever stayed in. More equipment than you could ever need or use during the week more than home from home. The cottage was spotless and had good quality fittings bright and airy. The little gifts a lovely touch. The owners we lovely and very helpful.
The best thing though has to be the private patio offering us every changing views wonderful wildlife and stunning sunsets a photographers paradise. With excellent walks from your doorstep this has to be a not to be missed cottage if you enjoy peace and quiet.

“Perfect Holiday Cottage”
Reviewed 9 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Fabulous cottage in a very peaceful and quiet village location, with a perfect, ever changing, view - even when the weather wasn't so good. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed and more. Within easy walking distance of the Kings Arms, which provided good pub grub.

What a fantastic cottage! Direct access to the empty beach! Loved it! The cottage was clean, modern and very well equipped. The weather was fantastic and the outside decking area was an ideal place to sit and admire the view, have drinks or a barbecue. I spent a lot of time on the patio reading, listening to music and watching my husband jogging on the beach!! Went for a Sunday session at the local (2 minutes walk) and found the staff very welcoming indeed! Lots of wild life and the local pheasant kept us amused on the lawn! Bill and Patsy were great hosts and such a lovely couple. We stay in cottages often and this is one of the best we have stayed in! Loved it and didn't want to leave. Thank you Bill and Patsy!
