Love this little cottage, stayed here a couple of times over the last few years. My dogs love the freedom of the fantastic beaches along the Solway Coast. Felt the carpet in the hallway could do with replacing along with a deep clean for the sofas, but on the whole all good Last time we stayed the larder was full of all sorts, unfortunately this time the cupboard was bare with only salt and pepper. Although cleaning products where aplenty. Shop around the corner fixed any worries we had

Hawthorne Cottage was superb. The location at the edge of the beach with extensive sea views over the Solway and Cumbrian fells was exquisite. The cottage was very well quipped with everything needed on holiday already in the house Th property was surprisingly spacious , spotlessly clean and toasty warm.What more could you ask. Beds were comfortable with good quality linen Could find nothing to fault apart from a very minor issue with the shower over the bath being “unpredictable” causing those Ohh Ahh hot cold dance routines.! However there is a superb walk-in shower in the en-suite so it mattered not. The welcome pack provided by the owners was extraordinary and fed us for half the week! by any measure the most generous we have ever encountered. Excellent quality too. We really liked the house and tried to book again for the spring but the dates we wanted weren’t available. Later in the year perhaps, highly recommended
