  • "Susan the caretaker was so welcoming which really gets your holiday off to a great start."

    The house looks just like it does on the pictures, Is spotlessly clean and really well equipped. All the rooms are really lovely. The big lounge meant we could all be together but still either watch TV or play games in groups. We went to The Wheatsheaf pub in the village for Sunday lunch which was also exceptional. We celebrated my Dads 80th and Sons 30th birthdays so the guests ranged from small children, teenagers and adults and everyone had a wonderful time. Would definitely rebook in the warmer weather then we can make use of the outdoor kitchen. A wonderful time. Just wonderful!!

    Was nice to get away from the real world. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who asks. Was such a lovely place to watch the sun set!

  • "Great house, with lots of games, DVDs."

    Only thing missing was waste bins in every bedroom, and family bathroom could have done with a shower as well as the bath. Only negative criticism was 9.30am is a really early check-out, and the cleaners arrived and stood outside the door 10 minutes before we were due to check out, and then we’re right there and almost in the way when we were saying our family goodbyes. Would definitely return.

    The pictures do not do it justice it is stunning. So clean and inviting. We made some beautiful memories there that will stay with us forever. Thankyou so much.

  • "West border farm is beautiful, set in rural grounds and ample facilities."

    The bedrooms are all decorated to a stunning standard, the whole house was spotlessly clean. The kitchen is a great space but didn’t have many small glasses, and the frying pans weren’t great (loose handles). The large lounge had many beautiful and comfortable reclining sofas. The outdoor kitchen with BBQ and Ooni pizza oven is so well made but the weather prevented much use of that area. It’s a shame the hot tub area and outdoor kitchen are not linked. The property would benefit from a downstairs bedroom and bathroom as my mother in law found the stairs very steep, I’d sacrifice or adapt the games room to make the house inclusive to people with mobility issues, also the doors need soft closers as they do slam which can be noisy with lots of people in the house, also worth noting the postcode given takes you nowhere near the house, luckily a farmer directed us, we downloaded the app What3words and the rest of the family found it no issues (subway.mistress.screen). We went to the pub recommended in the house folder and the food was fantastic We had an amazing weekend and loved the house, it’s definitely five star accommodation and enabled a family to be together for the first time in three years, we will definitely be back, Thank you

  • "JUST PERFECT, everything about the stay was great."

    House is lovely and clean, very spacious ( as a group of 18, including children, theres more than enough space). Everything you need for your stay, this place has. Perfect for children, they had so much fun in the garden, on the play frame and in the games room. We honestly couldnt fault a thing. We definitely will be returning and adding extra days. It really was a shame to come home.

  • "As we were a large group booking the accommodation was great."

    It was clean, comfortable and all round a great property to vacate at. The property and grounds are beautiful, peaceful and relaxing with more than enough space for the children to run around.

  • "Me and my friends had an amazing time at this property!"

    It is so comfortable and clean, the rooms are hotel standard and the owners are so friendly and accommodating. The house itself is in a beautiful location with lakes not too far away, and gorgeous sunset views in the evening. We’re hoping to make this an annual visit- we couldn’t have asked for more!

  • "Hi, I am disappointed, as your advertising failed to mention that the property is next door to a housing construction site, so there is constant noise from a mechanical digger, angle grinders and cement mixers between 8am and 4pm everyday."

    We also found the astroturf badly fitted outside and was a trip hazard to guests, both young and old. Finally, cleanliness was not a high priority for the property owners for the following reasons:-

About the location

ABBEYTOWN

Silloth 6 miles; Wigton 6.5 miles; Cockermouth 17 miles; Carlisle 18 miles; Keswick 22 miles.

The village of Abbeytown is situated on the Solway Plain, on the edge of the Solway Coast, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, midway between Wigton and Silloth. Located within reach of the shores of Morecambe Estuary, Abbeytown was once one of the most important place in the north due its fine Cistercian Holmcultram Abbey, which was founded in 1150 around which much of the medieval village developed. The Cumbria Coastal Way passes through Abbeytown and from the village if you look south you will be able to admire the views of distant Lakeland fells and Skiddaw, whilst looking north are views of the Solway and Scottish hills. The 84 mile Hadrian's Wall starts in the west at nearby Bowness on Solway, and the Solway Coast is particularly good for walking and birdwatching. Further afield you will find the city of Carlisle, the Scottish Borders and the Lake District National Park. A convenient base for exploring many places of interest.
