The Property

This spacious end-terrace house is situated adjacent to the harbour wall in the historic town of Maryport on the west coast of Cumbria. Presented to a comfortable standard, this Maryport cottage provides excellent holiday accommodation. There is a cosy sitting room with a dining area and a kitchen with breakfast bar, along with four bedrooms across the first and second floors, with two having delightful harbour views. With an additional sitting room with patio doors leading to the courtyard and an external games room with pool table and dart board, this is a wonderful cottage in Cumbria, which offers suitable accommodation for any large family. Outside this Maryport cottage is an enclosed courtyard, a perfect sun trap, and to the front there are uninterrupted views of the harbour, where the sunsets are simply stunning. Located in the heart of this interesting town there are plenty of local pubs and shops to explore. Children will be delighted to visit the Lake District Coastal Aquarium and to try out the climbing activities at the indoor centre in the town, whilst older guests may prefer to visit the Maritime Museum and the Senhouse Roman Museum; especially good on a wet day. There are excellent golf courses at nearby Cockermouth and Silloth and the stunning Solway Coast is a haven for wildlife, especially wading birds.
