    • “Lovely clean spacious cottage. Home from home. Had everything we needed plus more inc milk in the fridge and fruit platter with wine. Owners very friendly. They live in the pub next door if we needed them else left us to enjoy our stay. We had a 3yr old with us so was great to have a play park just minutes away. close to the sea and shops near by. Smoking is allowed and dogs r welcome, very ideal.”

    • “Perfect accomodation for playing golf at Silloth GC”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Four golfers based ourselves in the apartment for a week, playing Silloth(lots)and other surrounding courses. Silloth GC is walking distance away and an ideal eaterie/base if you don't want to cook and also a magnificent golf course. The apartment is very comfortable, well equipped and very handy for the pub next door. (good beer, friendly locals and a big screen TV) As a base for golfers not wanting the formality of a hotel this is about as good as it gets and incredible value. Definitely highly recommended.”

    • “An All Round Happy Experience”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “I chose Silloth as an area, away from the lakes and the tourist spots, but near enough to travel to them, which worked perfectly. The cottage, I found to be of high standard which was perfect for me and my children. All the necessary amenities were catered for and the owners were more than happy to help in any way possible. Thoroughly recommend.”

    • “We stayed here with a five year old. The cottage is well appointed and very quaint and pretty. It is very suitable for a young family rather than an older family or with friends as one bedroom can only be accessed though the other and the upstairs bathroom is off the first bedroom. It was ideal for us. TV reception was a bit poor if you sat on the sofa nearest the TV but was fine otherwise. Wifi was good. Best in the rooms next to the pub. The pub was only open at weekends and there is some noise from it but not intrusive at all. You can walk every where as it is very central. We took out a month membership at Stanwix park to use the facilities and with a small child in a quiet town this was very good value and provided the bulk of our entertainment. Heating/hot water appliances etc were all fine - no problems at all the kitchen was well equipped as we were using it more than going out. Would recommend if you need a place in this area. Lovely countryside and walking etc. The owners were unhand in the pub if needed at all.”

About the location


Keswick 24 miles.

The popular seaside resort of Silloth, situated amidst Cumbria's Western Lakes and Coast, nestles on the shores of the Solway Firth. Facing the hills of Southern Galloway and backed by the Lake District Fells, Silloth is renowned for its invigorating but mild climate, its leisurely and peaceful atmosphere and perhaps, most of all, its glorious sea views and sunsets, fine enough to be recorded for posterity by Turner, the famous landscape artist. Silloth was originally built to accommodate a port in the late 19th Century and the imaginative development of the area can be seen in its wide, elegant tree lined streets, spacious sea front and magnificent promenade stretching towards Skinburness. The attractive town centre boasts 36 acres of open grassland, known simply as 'The Green', while a championship golf course dominates the edge of the town and has been described as one of the top fifty golf courses in Britain. This is a superb area for walking, with the Cumbria Coastal Walk running right along the coastline, and excellent birdwatching opportunities are also available. Further afield, but still within easy touring distance are the many attractions and glorious landscape of the Lake District.
