  • "Hi Chris & Mark, what can I say, your home was beautiful."

    So comfy clean and so well equipped with everything you need, even down to salt & pepper, etc. What a beautiful welcome gift too. The whole home was set up with amazing quality equipment, furnishings and beds, bedding in fact everything. The icing on the cake is that beautiful view over the Sollway of Criffel. I took loads of photos. The scene changes by the minute. Do not be afraid to book this home. Silloth and surround ing towns are lovely. You are also on the edge of then Lake District. I love Silloth as we come over several times a year to stay with friends but thought we would give them a rest from us. I sincerely hope I can visit again. It is the best.

  • "This property is probably the best equipped and maintained we have stayed in, and very comfortable."

    It has been beautifully renovated and thoughtfully prepared for visitors. The location is lovely and despite awful weather we thoroughly enjoyed everything the area had to offer. Silloth has a calm, old-fashioned charm and we really liked walks there for coffee. The views from the property are wonderful, and there are good walks direct from the door - handy for dog walking . Would definitely recommend a stay here.

  • "Truly excellent- This bungalow is beautifully decorated, maintained and equipped and very clean."

    The views from the front of the house across the Solway are superb. The owners were helpful without being instructive. Highly recommended The unexpected joy was the area around Silloth and the village itself. It has the faded glory of many older British seaside resorts but undoubted charm. There is also a lot of local history to explore from Hadrians Wall , old Ww2 airfields and the the site of the death ( I know morbid!) of King Edward 1 Suffice to say we have rebooked the house for Spring next year

  • "Solway View was a beautiful exceptional bungalow, well equipped, comfortable, lovely patio and views out across the Solway Firth."

    Not only was it a home from home, there were even dog treats and dog towels. However, Silloth was not what we had expected, we had been before a number of years ago and remember it as a busy thriving town. But, as we discovered on our first walk into town, there was nowhere to have an evening meal as dogs were not allowed in any of the hotels or cafes. The town was lacking in any amenities at all and a real disappointment to us. The best part of the town was Silloth Green and the walk into town from the bungalow was lovely for us and our little dog.

There was no need for me to have taken any cleaning products.

There is nothing I can give a black mark about. Back yard is enclosed and safe for animals and children with table and chairs, lovely potted plants. Although there is a road routside, the double glazed window did their job. View from the front window is ideal to watch beautiful sun sets.

About the location


Maryport 12 miles; Carlisle 23 miles.

The popular resort of Silloth in West Cumbria lies north of the Lake District on the shore of the Solway Firth. On the opposite shore lie the hills of Southern Galloway in Scotland and to the south Skiddaw and the Northern Fells can be seen. Silloth was renowned for its "invigorating air, temperate climate, airy streets, its promenade and beach". It has glorious sea and mountain views and the light and the sunsets are renowned. It was developed in the 1850s; the railway arrived in 1856, the docks were opened 3 years later. The Carr's biscuit factory flour mill opened in 1886. Silloth was for a time, one of the country’s premier seaside resorts. The town was laid out on a regular grid pattern and planned as a "health resort for the upper and middle classes". The streets running off the wide, tree lined, cobbled Criffel Street are all named after the rivers flowing into the Solway Firth. The 'Green', an ever present feature is 34 acres of open grassland and is communal space for all to enjoy. Silloth and Solway Golf Club, situated in the town is a championship course which is ranked No 1 by the National Club Golfer Magazine 2016 for both quality and value. There are superb walks, particularly along the coastline, west to Allonby and east to Grune Point. Birdwatching is ever present. Both the Lake District and the English Heritage site of Birdoswald Fort, Hadrian's Wall are an easy 40 minute drive away. With quiet country roads and the Cumbria Coastal Way this is an ideal location for cyclists and walkers.
