The popular seaside resort of Allonby sits along a five mile crescent shaped bay on the Solway Firth, offering a clean shingle beach, sand dunes and a wide green promenade. The flat terrain is ideal for walkers of all ages and for dogs, and is also popular with windsurfers and kite flyers, plus there are beautiful panoramic views across the bay towards Criffel and the Galloway Hills of Scotland. The village is set in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has kept much of its Georgian and Victorian charm, with cobbled lanes, curious corners to explore and several splendid buildings, one of which is The Baths, an imposing colonnaded building. The majestic Lake District Fells make a perfect backdrop to the village, and despite its small size, thriving Allonby boasts public houses, several cafes, a chip shop, ice cream parlour/general shop, a Post Office, antiques shop, a leisure centre with pool, events in the village hall and a children’s play park. The Cumbria Coastal Walk and Allerdale Ramble pass through the village, or why not enjoy a round of golf at one of the two courses nearby, plus visit the town of Maryport, which has an award-winning coastal aquarium and maritime and Roman museums. A short drive will take you to the historic city of Carlisle, nip over the border to Gretna Green, experience the 2000 year legacy of Hadrian’s Wall or enjoy fun packed days out exploring the beautiful Western Lakes and fells where there is a wealth of things to see and do, including Hadrian's Cycleway where you can take in the stunning views on your journey. The stunning Whinlatter Forest Park, near Keswick is a haven for mountain bikers and walkers and the Go Ape high wire adventure course is ideal for the more adventurous.
