Enjoy a family holiday from this well furnished, comfortable holiday home, ideally located for the Lake District or the beaches.

Cove Cottage is set in a quiet cobbled square just off the sea front in the popular village of Allonby. A two-minute walk will take you to the beach with views overlooking the Solway Firth towards Scotland. With its long sandy beaches and stunning views, it is easy to understand why this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a firm favourite with families. The cottage itself is very well furnished with comfortable beds, including a four poster. Being right in the heart of Allonby, there is direct access to the pubs, takeaways and a local shop (where you can get a famous Allonby whopper ice cream!). The Solway sunsets are spectacular, and on a clear day you can even see over to the Isle of Man. Allonby Bay is one of the Marine Conservation Zones - why not visit Maryport Aquarium to find out more about the local sealife and what makes it special. There are lots of other things to do in the area including go-karting, cycling the 26-mile Hadrian’s Cycleway, various museums, golf, wind surfing, sea fishing and the Solfest Music and Art Festival, plus Maryport Blues Festival are a few miles up the road. Slightly further afield is the ever popular Lake District, 26 miles, with beautiful scenery, passing Bassenthwaite Lake to Keswick. Alternatively why not go shopping in Cockermouth, only 10 miles, or Carlisle which is only 26 miles away. Beach 60 yards. Shop 50 yards, pub and restaurant 20 yards.

One step to entrance. Ground floor: Living/dining room. Kitchen with tiled floor. Open tread stairs to first floor: 3 bedrooms: 2 double, (one 5ft four poster), 1 twin with Velux. Bathroom with shower over bath and toilet.

    We have stayed here every year for the last 4 years and love Allonby. The cottage as usual was clean and tidy, this is a real gem in Allonby. If you want a cottage that you feel comfortable in come to cove cottage

    Great accommodation for us, which included a small dog. Within walking distance of cafe, 2 pubs, fish & chips shop, small shop and the beach. The welcome gift for us and our dog was very sweet.

    Brilliant location although it was a bit of a job to find. The owner was extremely helpful when contacted both before and during our stay. There were 4 adults in our party plus three dogs which was fine in terms of the lounge and dining area, any more adults would have made it a bit uncomfortable despite there being three bedrooms, there is only one bathroom and loo (please put a lock on the bathroom door!!). If I could suggest improvements it would be to dump the four poster bed and all the old style furniture, it makes the place look over-crowded (we had to use this room as my husband is 6'3" so the metal foot-board in bedroom 2 was not practical although it was a much nicer more modern room-as was the twin room). I would also lose the huge side board and the old fashioned china downstairs, which had not been dusted very well and took up way too much room. Otherwise it was a fantastic location with everything in the kitchen/lounge you could need. The neighbours were also very friendly!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your comments. I will check if we can improve the written directions. With only 4 people, I am glad you and your 3 dogs had plenty of space. The cottage is great for 6 people also, as it has a proper bed for everyone, large suite and dining for 6. Even with child friendly locks on the bathroom, children can and have got stuck, so we hope you understand the reasoning. Furniture is a matter of taste, but I am glad your husband was able to sleep comfortably in the king sized bed. The antique china is in keeping with the cottage feel, but I will bring our comments to the attention of my cleaner. Overall , I am pleased you enjoyed our cottage and the location. We hope to welcome you back in the future

    Location not ideal. Very pleasant inside , apart from a VERY small galley kitchen. Fridge/freezer in corridor OUTSIDE of kitchen not a good idea. View from lounge window NIL. Brick wall of garage only 4 feet away. NO amenities in village for essential provisions.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your review, we are pleased to see that our cottage was pleasant and comfortable for you. Although the fridge freezer is not in the kitchen, it is within the cottage and very easy to access. There are two windows in the lounge, and only one looks onto the porch. The other overlooks the square. It is a shame that you perhaps did not have a 10 minute walk to the other end of the village, where you would have found essential provisions including bread, milk etc. at Twentymans Ice Cream Shop. The village also has 2 pubs serving food, a takeaway and a café, for times when you don’t feel like cooking. Major supermarkets are only 20 minutes away by car. It was nice to meet you and your three lovely little dogs.
