Single holiday let sleeping up to 6 guestsSituated adjacent to the beautiful dunes of Allonby in the peaceful northwest of Cumbria, Sea Glass Cottage offers direct access to the beach and unrivaled views of the Solway. The Lake District, Carlisle and the Borders are within easy reach, but it's wonderful to leave the crowds behind at the end of the day and come back to your peaceful beach retreat.
Sea Glass Cottage is a three bedroomed cottage with 2 double rooms (one can be made up as two singles). A single bedded room can convert to a twin with a slide-under trundle bed, plus there is space for a travel cot. Two of the bedrooms offer fabulous sea and sunset views. There's a large bathroom with bath and separate shower.
Downstairs, a comfortable lounge diner with log-burning stove provides a place to relax after a day on the beach. There's a smart TV and unlimited broadband so you can catch up on the box sets you’ve missed. A spacious kitchen entirely refitted in 2015 has an American-style fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble drier, 5 ring hob, single oven, microwave and Nespresso coffee maker. There is also a downstairs loo. A conservatory stretches the full width of the front of the cottage, with wicker furniture and a smaller dining table. Double sliding doors open right up to let the outside in but keep the sea breezes at bay on blustery days.
A small, walled, decked area at the front of the cottage is secure for children and pets. Garden furniture and a BBQ are provided and there is a log store. Parking is on a free public car park yards from the cottage.
Allonby is a quirky seaside village with two pubs serving food, a tea shop, general store, Post Office and renowned Fish and Chip Shop. The English Coastal Path starts here and passes the door of the cottage, excellent for cycling and walking. The beach offers interest for artists, photographers, bird-watchers and beach-combers. It is sheer heaven for dogs! Cockermouth, Whitehaven, Carlisle, The Lakes and The Borders are all within easy reach by car.
