  • “Lovely holiday cottage, extremely well equipped even down to providing bowls and towel for the dog.”

    Great base for exploring the lakes and Scotland. Also ideally situated in the village with the pub round the corner which serves excellent meals to takeaway or in the restaurant. The tearoom practically next door does an excellent breakfast and the beach is just across the road. Great holiday and have already booked to go back next year

The property

Resting just spaces away from Allonby’s glorious shingle beach is this charming, terraced property, Sun House.

This spacious accommodation is the perfect choice for groups of families and friends in pursuit of exploring this part of Cumbria’s coastline and to venture into the Lake District National Park for memorable days out.

As you enter into the property, be charmed by the Victorian-style titles within the hallway, where you can kick off your sandy shoes before exploring the rest of the property.

Head into the well-equipped kitchen, which contains an electric oven, induction hob, microwave and dishwasher, ensuring that you and your loved ones can cater delicious meals for the duration of your stay.

Once breakfast, lunch or dinner is ready, gather everyone around the formal dining table, comfortably seating eight people, a great spot for spending quality time together and planning the following day’s adventure.

After an action-packed afternoon, look forward to unwinding within the sitting room with a characterful inglenook fireplace to admire as you tune into the TV.

Younger guests can venture to the second-floor snug, home to a good selection of games, promising hours of entertainment before heading to bed.

Concluding downstairs is the utility, boasting a washing machine and a tumble dryer, so you can easily wash and dry your clothes after your day at the beach.

As the evening draws to a close, be spoilt for choice by the four bedrooms that await you, situated across the first and second floor, designed to offer a flexible sleeping arrangement for all party make-ups.

Choose between the a king-size bedroom and en-suite, a double, a twin with zip/link features, or head to the second floor to find a twin bedroom, together sleeping up to eight people and served a family bathroom with a shower over bath.

Better acquaint yourself with your surroundings by taking a short stroll through the village, where you will find a pub, a quaint tearoom, a fish and chip shop and a shop for picking up the essentials, accompanied by a shingle beach, backed by sand dunes, promising a wonderful day out.

If you are feeling active, choose to explore the Cumbria Coastal Walk which passes through the village, or how about a round of golf at one of the nearby courses?

Venture to nearby Maryport, where you will find further attractions, including ward-winning coastal aquarium and maritime and Roman museums, or further afield is the bustling city of Carlisle.

The Lake District National Park plays host to a plethora of hiking routes and Keswick is a scenic drive away, surrounded by mountains like Skiddaw and home to Castlerigg Stone Circle and Derwent Water with boat trips.

Sun House is an outstanding property for a fun-filled holiday.

About the location


Maryport 5 miles; Cockermouth 10 miles; Keswick 23 miles; Carlisle 23 miles.

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. Allonby is a perfect year round retreat providing an ideal base from which to explore the area.
