  • "Lovely Bungalow, spacious, very clean and modern."

    Lots to do locally and only 20 minutes drive to Keswick.

  • "We booked this property during the kids half term break!"

    Although it was a last minute booking, we had a quick response from the owners of the property. The property itself exceeded our expectations and located in a quiet village. We had a wonderful 3 night stay and very convenient to drive to all the attractions in Lake District. The owner was able to accommodate our request, hair dryer in particular. We were touched by the kind gesture and he offered that we can check out late or stay for another night. We will definitely come back in the summer time and this place is highly recommended for everyone.

  • "Lovely bungalow, but lacks information on their electrical products."

    A very modern television but even my Grandkids couldn’t set it up . The tv signal was very poor, sometimes cutting out every few minutes. There is no parking space, only on the road. But after saying that we had a lovely week . with TVs in all three bedrooms. Very modern kitchen and bathroom.

The property

Aspatria 2.6 miles.

Perfectly positioned in the sleepy village of Plumbland, set amidst the beautiful landscapes of the Allerdale district is The Croft Bungalow, an elegantly appointed property offering an idyllic base for touring Cumbria.

The single-storey dwelling is situated just a stone’s throw away from the Lake District National Park, as well as the beautiful Cumbrian coastline, offering the best of both coast and countryside for you and your loved ones to enjoy.

Enter into the property to find the delightfully decorated sitting room, featuring a large picture window, which affords a constant connection with the endearing village, whilst the three sofas invite you to relax in front of the Smart TV and the gas fire offers a gentle warmth.

Slip through the far door to find the kitchen/diner, where the contemporary suite boasts a number of modern touches and integrated appliances, sure to encourage the chef of group to rustle up family-favourite dishes, whilst the elegantly-presented dining table offers a sociable spot for enjoying the company of your loved ones over good food and drinks!

As the evening grows darker, catch your rest within one of the three bedrooms, the master suite notable for its sumptuous double bed, piled with plump cushions and a TV, perfect for those lazing Sunday mornings.

Bedroom two has another double bed, whilst the third and final bedroom is a bunk bed layout, perfectly arranged to suit groups of couples, friends or families with children.

The garden at The Croft Bungalow is as equally as impressive, with a rear patio providing great views across the countryside landscape, with table and chairs for alfresco dining and the front garden offers space for your canine companion to stretch his legs and a charming pond to admire.

For the evenings where you do not feel like cooking, be sure to linger over a pint at the neighbouring pub, the Last Man Inn before sampling their excellent home-cooked dining menu.

Alternatively, journey into the nearby town of Aspatria, where you will find a small collection of pubs, takeaways and shops, as well as a working railway, easily connecting you to Maryport and Carlisle and the church of St Kentigern, home to an avenue of yew trees, which leads to the site where a Norman church once stood.

Avid ramblers can don their boots and visit the Lake District National Park, where a network of paths and trails are awaiting to be explored, whilst beachcombers can follow along the picturesque Solway Coast.

Be sure to brush up on the local history with a visit to the National Trust property of Wordsworth House and Garden or spend a tranquil afternoon at Mirehouse & Gardens with park well-worth exploring.

Those with children will enjoy the Lake District Wildlife Park, where over 100 species of exotic animals live at the 25-acre park or you could meet the alpacas at the Lakes Distillery, there is certainly something for everyone here!

Travel slightly further into the national park to find Keswick, where you can enjoy the waters of Derwentwater, marvel at the offbeat collection at Keswick Museum and visit the National Trust Derwent Island House for a unique afternoon out.

With all of this and much more to enjoy, bring your loved ones to The Croft Bungalow for an exceptional stay in Cumbria.
