    This was a great find. A cosy and tastefully decorated cottage with everything we needed to make our stay an enjoyable and comfortable one. Wonderful coastal walks and not too far from towns for a bit of retail therapy.

The property

Resting in the coastal village of Allonby, just north of Maryport, Cumbria, with a south facing aspect and overlooking the village green, lies this fabulous, spacious two-bedroom holiday home a stones throw from the Blue Flag beach, Gulls Hatch.

Set over three floors, this property welcomes four guests for a memorable, self-catered stay, boasting tasteful, well-presented living spaces and a wealth of nifty on-site amenities.

Inside, make yourself at home in the open-plan kitchen, dining and living room that is kept warm by a centrepiece woodburning stove, where you and your loved ones can rustle up and enjoy delicious, home-cooked meals to be enjoyed at the dining table or breakfast bar.

In the evenings, retreat to the second-floor spectacular sitting room to enjoy a film or two on the Smart TV with beautiful bay views, before indulging in a long, rejuvenating bath on your way to sleep in a plush double bedroom, an idyllic spot to rest and refresh after a day full of fun activities.

After enjoying your morning coffee on the front patio, which enjoys stunning views of the seafront taking in beautiful views across the Solway Firth to Scotland, take a short walk to grab an ice cream from Twentymans ice-cream Parlour that you can savour on a peaceful stroll along Blue Flag-certified Allonby Beach.

Maryport is a brief drive south, where visitors can find the Maryport Maritime Museum, Senhouse Roman Museum, and the tranquil spot of Maryport Marina as well as the Lake District Coast Aquarium with crazy golf.

Slightly further afield you can find Cockermouth, home to the scenic Memorial Gardens, as well as the National Trust landmark location of Wordsworth House and Garden.

If you want to make a day of it, make the trip to the market town of Keswick; situated at the heart of the Lake District, this bustling spot is home to the grounds of Hope Park and the historic landmark of the Castlerigg Stone Circle.

All of this and more await during a stay at Gulls Hatch.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

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 on high tide but miles of safe sand in an endless beach as the tide goes out. 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. The Cumbria Coastal Walk and Allerdale Ramble pass through the village. Links golf is available at Maryport Golf Course and the world renowned Silloth Golf course. A short trip 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.
