  • Mr Meadows

    “Cottage very clean and comfy, and supplied everything we needed except wifi.”

    Unfortunately it is also a poor reception area for data use

    Unfortunately it is also a poor reception area for data use Great location overlooking the sea and the harbour areas. Ideal base for exploring the area, and local walks. and a Good selection of takeaways. Restaurants are restricted due to Covid. Great communications with the owner, who was very helpful. Thanks

The property

This quirky cottage lies in an elevated position above Maryport Harbour, a picturesque location, with a lighthouse resting in the distance.

Couples can enjoy a romantic getaway at Firth Cottage, or come together as a family for a peaceful holiday, enjoying all that the destination has to offer.

Take a moment to appreciate the vibrant location before entering inside, the lovely surroundings begin on your doorstep.

Be welcomed by the lounge, a warm and cosy room, complimented by cream-coloured seating, and a coal effect fire with a wooden surround.

There is a country cottage kitchen beyond this, a homely place to dish up your favourite meals, neighboured by a utility area designed in black and white tiled flooring.

This same traditional effect continues up to the first floor bathroom, which is presented with a bath, and an overhead shower.

Close by, two bedrooms comprise of a lovely twin, and a spacious double, which also features storage space, with an outlook over the heart-warming town.

Make the most of the enclosed courtyard to the back of the cottage, a peaceful area to unwind, and be at one with the beautiful setting.

Enjoy the delights of Maryport from the shopping centre, the new Wave Centre, links golf course, to the beautiful Georgian houses, and award-winning Lake District Coast Aquarium.

The Solway Coast is perfect for walking and cycling, the Cumbria Coastal Way running right along the coastline.

Within a short drive, the glorious landscape of the Lake District awaits, while the Solway Firth is just a stone’s throw away.

To the north, Carlisle, Northumbria and the borders of Scotland promise an excellent day out.

A coastal base to build some memories.
