Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the tidal salt marshes, The Grey House faces the sweeping scenery of the Scottish coast and is cradled in the breath-taking charm of Silloth Bay. The property is surrounded on a wider scale by the delights of the English Lake District, where marshes and rolling hills stretch onto the horizon, presenting seemingly limitless opportunities for family walks bird watching, touring and hikes, and with access also to the beauty of Southern Scotland.

The property is surrounded on a wider scale by the delights of the English Lake District, where marshes and rolling hills stretch onto the horizon, presenting seemingly limitless opportunities for family walks bird watching, touring and hikes, and with access also to the beauty of Southern Scotland. The Grey House Annexe is an ideal location for your Summer or Winter Holiday and is perfect for a comfortable Short Break or as a base for visiting friends. The Grey House Annexe is a secluded and deceptively spacious one bedroom fully self contained annexe to the rear of the owners' sea front home; it has its own entrance to the property and is fully fenced and private. It is situated in the Victorian resort of Silloth – on – Solway located on the West Cumbrian Coastline. Literally a minutes' walk from the delightful promenade which looks over the Solway Firth. The sunsets here are wonderful, claim a bench and sit and watch the sun go down. Walk to Grune Point on the marshes and enjoy the scenery or find a quiet space to watch the amazing bird life we have on the Solway coast. Find us on Facebook The Grey House Annexe Silloth is a quiet seaside town which has been here since the late 19th century and is little changed; it has a wonderful and unspoiled green which runs the length of the town. Silloth suits those looking for a quieter holiday, we have none of the bustle of busy seaside resorts and you can find peace and quiet all year round, whatever the weather! The gas centrally heated & double glazed accommodation, comprises one double bedroom, decorated in pretty Laura Ashley wallpaper and with matching curtains, it has a super-king size Sealy bed with good quality bedding, feather duvet and both feather and non-feather pillows. It has lovely honey pine furnishings, large 3 door wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table and matching bed side cabinets. Windows to two sides with views over the garden. A hallway with hanging space, spacious sitting room with comfortable three piece suite and large flat screen television with all sky channels, including movies and sport for those quieter evenings a DVD player and collection of DVD's, and books.

It has a small private and fully fenced secure garden with garden furniture, on road parking by the annexe entrance and there is easy access to the local shops, eateries, golf club and some lovely coffee shops. One dog is welcome and this is a wonderful place for walks - they even get their own welcome box. The house is adjacent to an old pine wood and the annexe has lots of garden birds and even the occasional resident hedgehog. The annexe is deceptively large and is decorated to a high standard. It has comfortable furnishings to allow you to unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet, it is an ideal hideaway.

Interaction with guests
We will generally be here to give you the keys and show you round the annexe, if not there is a key safe and everything will be left ready for you. We are available to answer questions if you need anything but the annexe is very private and has its own entrance and access.

About the neighbourhood
There are lots of events through the year both locally and wider afield, lots of information on things to do is available in the annexe but many of our guests take the opportunity to relax and re-charge their batteries with walks on the promenade and time to watch the sun go down over Criffel Mountain in Scotland.
Getting around
A car is recommended for getting around although there are local busses these are limited. You can get the bus to Maryport, Workington, Wigton and Carlisle.
