Description

This beautiful, tranquil cottage, once belonging to Cumbrian artist Percy Kelly, is the perfect base for exploring Allonby and the Lake District National Park.

This beautifully renovated cottage was once the home of the renowned Cumbrian artist Percy Kelly. You will see engraved in the lintel in the bedroom “AK – PK – 1958”. The artist lived in Cumbria for more than 50 years and in Glen Cottage for twelve of those. Follow the Kelly Trails which have been formed totally through Kelly’s paintings and drawings, and stretch from the door of Glen Cottage in Allonby to St Bees.
Glen Cottage itself is a very comfortable, tranquil cottage with views stretching out over the Solway Firth to Scotland in the distance. It has insulated lime render walls inside and outside, as well as underfloor heating in the living room and sitting room making the house very warm and cosy. The sitting room retains a lot of original features including beams complete with hook, as well as a large inglenook fire place with a wood burner and sandstone flooring, which makes a particularly attractive and a cosy spot to warm up in front of after a long day exploring.
Allonby is a great base for walking, windsurfing, kite surfing, cycling or just relaxing on the beach. With 2 pubs serving meals, 2 shops and a take-away, you don’t have to worry about cooking after a busy day out. Why not try the famous ’Allonby Whopper’ ice cream, people travel for miles to come and try one!
Only 200 yards across the road, guests can enjoy an afternoon of sea fishing, without a licence. For those who want to get out and about and explore the area, the Lake District National Park is on your doorstep. From Glen Cottage you can also easily explore the delights of the unspoilt Cumbrian Coast. Be sure however, to follow a Percy Kelly Trail! Beach 200 yards. Shop, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

    Super cottage, we wanted for nothing, even had lovely little extras like fresh flowers, fruit and Home made cake. Allonby is a lovely little village and the cottage is just across the road from the beach.

    One of the best we have had, we did have very hot weather!!!, the cottage kept us cool in the heat of the day, and Duncan our dog was very happy, nice walks on the beach,Glen Cottage is the best one we have been to, standard very high, well done to the owners, and great history, the bathroom is a bit of fun (mind your head!!!) If you like fish and chips just cross the road,they are very big. Sorry no photo to old to no how to do it, not very good at IT!!

    Love the renovation the owners have done its so cosy and comfortable and very modern touch without taking away from the authenticity. The Solway Firth sea and rugged sand banks are just outside, our dog loved to run across the grassy sandbanks. A great fish and chip opposite if you don’t want to cook. All amenities were there and extras too like salt pepper, bread, milk etc. and even homemade cake! The Lakes were just a short drive away so lots to do.

    We had a fantastic week break staying at Glen Cottage. The cottage itself was immaculate, tastefully decorated, well equipped and cosy with the log burner. It was a perfect base to explore the Lakes. Allonby itself was a great location right on the beach front to walk our dog and we ate in some lovely pubs in Maryport nearby. Would highly recommend as could not fault the cottage - stunning

    Glen cottage is a beautiful, well presented cottage that instantly makes you feel at home as soon as you enter. We were greeted on the day by Steven who showed us around the cottage and had the wood burning stove lit ready to keep us toasty for the evening. We also received a lovely welcome pack full of goodies. Fantastic location near a beautiful stretch of beach. We could not have felt more at home and welcome, very sad to leave but would defiantly love to return, highly recommend. Thanks again for making our 3 night stay one never to forget.

    Enjoyed a really lovely 4 days in Glen Cottage at the end of January. Cottage has been renovated to a very high standard. It was immaculate and very well equipped. It is really cosy in the evening with the Woodburning stove. Lovely touches of fresh flowers and home baking where much appreciated. A wee hidden gem.
