Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Description

Spacious 200 year old property with peaceful gardens and stream running adjacent. Close to the harbour town of Whitehaven. Beach just 1.5 miles.

Ideal for Western Lakes

Willow Barn Cottage (ref UKC2811) and Barn Owl Cottage (ref UKC2812) are quaint, converted cottages which have been tastefully upgraded and offer welcoming accommodation of a very good standard. Outside is a shared gravelled seating area, a suitable place to enjoy a morning coffee or relax in the evening overlooking open farmland. The Old Forge (ref W40295) is a sympathetically converted, detached 200-year old cottage retaining many character features, and has an enclosed garden. All properties have barn owls for neighbours - they nest in the adjoining barn!
The dog friendly properties are tucked away in a peaceful lane adjacent to the owner’s home on the edge of the picturesque village of Beckermet. They are situated close to Whitehaven with its historic harbour, marina and shops, which has twice been named as a Brita resort, and St Bees with its expanse of sandy beaches.
This is an ideal situation from which to explore the wonderful Western Fells of the Lake District National Park and the Cumbrian coastline. Ennerdale Water and Wastwater, once voted ’Britain’s Best View’ and nearby Scafell Pike, are within easy driving distance. For a superb day out, Muncaster Castle also has beautiful gardens and an internationally renowned Owl Sanctuary, not to mention the amazing views from its elevated position. Beach 1½ miles. Shop 3¾ miles, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    Really quiet location. Perfect to get away from it all. Cottage lovely and quaint. Garden really lovely. Surprised how quiet village was, one local pub open when we were there which was nice and dog friendly. Favourite place visited was Ennerdale Water - not to be missed. Owners met us on arrival and showed us to cottage and gave us local information and came to say goodbye when we were coming toward the end of our holiday. The only reason I wouldn’t return is because I like to go different places.

    Superb! We enjoyed the peace and quiet offered by the location of the Old Forge together with the comfort and cosiness following a good walk along the west Cumbria coast. Brian and Wendy are excellent hosts!

    Lovely cottage in an ideal location for beaches and a more peaceful setting. The forge was exactly as described in the brochure and it didn't disappoint
