  • "The cottage was clean and in a central position."

    Thoroughly enjoyed our stay hosts were very helpful.

  • "Really lovely cottage it had everything and totally spotless."

    Only down side is the sky light windows. Everyone wants them for giving extra light but if it’s raining they can be really noisy. We were unlucky with the weather. Hence how we know they can be really noisy. Also the only other thing we found was when driving onto the main road it’s hard to see what’s coming down from your right side. This didn’t stop us from enjoying our stay there.

  • "Genuinely lovely property."

    It's cosy, clean and very comfortable. The amenities are excellent, equipment too. It's in a great location with delightful walks, some possible from the Coach House itself. The village of Arnside is a 5 minute stroll away. The area is unspoilt and feels remote despite its proximity to the M6. The owner is very helpful.

    The Coach House gave us everything we wanted, a peaceful relaxing stay in a clean and warm environment.

  • "Thank you -- we had a lovely stay!"

    Arnside is a great location: nice walks direct from the cottage, great cafes and pubs by the estuary, and it was fascinating to watch the tidal bore. The cottage was perfectly comfortable and clean. The kitchen is well stocked. One tiny improvement would be to provide a hand whisk (but we just used a fork).

  • "The Coach House is a very comfortable cottage, fitted out to a very high standard."

    Plenty of room for parking and the EV charge point was very convenient. The location is great as a base for walks and cycle rides and to explore the wider Arnside AONB. The promenade at Arnside is a 10 min stroll away. We definitely recommend the Coach House.

  • "Hats off to the cleaners / owners!"

    The house was so clean it all seemed like new. It is very well equipped with nice touches such as books on the local walks of which there are many. The bed was very comfy and the house is quiet being set back from the road and well built. Even in a hot week in June Arnside was lovely and quiet. The only queue was Saturday night at the popular Fish & Ships shop just at the end of the Promenade which is recommended! In terms of trips out Leven's Hall is reasonably close by with the house proving to be very interesting as well as the well known gardens. Levens Kitchens which serves food all day is run by some talented chefs. They have very interesting and unusual cakes and can be visited without having to pay to visit the house & garden if you are just passing by.

    It is a really beautiful home. Everything was perfect and the standard of cleanliness very high. We would have no hesitation in booking again.....hopefully later in the year.

  • "The Coach House was a perfect house for four of us."

    We arrived to a sparkling clean house and it was warm and cosy throughout a week that saw freezing temperatures outside. The kitchen was very well equipped for preparing cooked meals. The warm hallway was also ideal for drying our wet coats and boots. We rarely used our car as we did local walks from the house or walked to the train station (less than 15 minutes) to do the 5 minute train ride to Silverdale station to walk from there. There were useful walking books provided at the Coach House. Communication with the owners was perfect. In summary, we had a wonderful, relaxing stay.

    The property is superbly placed for walks around Arnside and Silverdale. Arnside Knott is a few minutes away where fantastic views can be had. The property was immaculately clean, very well equipped with everything we needed. Beds were exceptionally comfortable. The cottage was very quiet and warm and we looked forward to returning after a busy day of exploring. We would definitely recommend. Paul & Michael (Nottingham)

    Excellent location, we like to visit Leighton Moss. The accommodation was in pristine condition.We have had many cottage holidays and it was refreshing to be able to use kitchen utensils and pans that were spotless.Thank you. The lounge was a bit chilly in the evenings. The gas fire was very welcome. There was a power cut for approx 12 hrs.(bad storm)Thank you for the good supply of torches. The neighbour,Judith was very helpful and attentive. We both loved this place and will definitely be back. We were sad to leave.

    The house is immaculately clean, lovely furnished and well equipped. The house consists of a lovely living room, excellent kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms one with two single beds and a gorgeous master bedroom that has patio doors leading to a lovely patio area. The location is at the top of the hill but with a local Nisa shop five minutes walk and ten to fifteen minutes your at The Albion pub and the sea front. The walk back of course is all uphill.

    The cottage is spotlessly clean in a great location, it's only a 5 - 10 minute walk to the centre of Arnside. It is equipped to a very high standard with top of the range appliances throughout; the bedrooms are immaculate, one with a king size bed and the other two single beds. The bathroom is equipped with a bath and shower, the bath is most welcome after a day out walking. The living room is warm and comfortable with two leather sofas, a flat screen TV and gas fire. There is ample off-road car parking space at the front and the cottage is a credit to the owners; we stayed a week which passed all too quickly but we would definitely stay here again, we can't recommend this property highly enough.

    As well-seasoned cottage-travellers, in the UK and abroad, we are happy to report that this is one of the very best properties in which we have ever stayed. Also, as it was a working holiday, it was excellent to have strong Broadband and a table on which to work. A great location for exploring local walks over Arnside Knott and along the coast to Silverdale, as well as being handy for the Lakeland fells, and shopping in Kendal. Arnside is such a picturesque and evocative coastal village. All in all, an exceptional cottage, and we hope to return before too long.

The property

Resting in the former fishing port of Arnside, Cumbria, is this charming detached cottage, The Coach House.

Fabulously decorated with a traditional and homely interior, The Coach House is a lovely setting for a family adventure to The Lake District.

Ample off-road parking greets you on the gravel driveway at the front of the property, perfect for guests wanting to forget about the car and head off to explore the sights on foot.

Stepping into the cottage you're welcomed into a small vestibule, providing a handy space to store muddy boots after the day’s adventure, featuring an adjoining boiler room housing a convenient washing machine to freshen up your walking gear.

Continue through to the sitting area, beautifully-appointed with light and airy décor, and featuring traditional wooden furnishings, encouraging a cosy and inviting atmosphere.

Nestle in around the television on the rustic leather sofa for a well-deserved rest, heating the room with the warmth of the living flame gas fire in the cooler evenings.

The open-plan kitchen/diner also boasts a traditional décor, with a remarkable exposed stone feature wall and contrasting wooden kitchen cupboards, fit with all of the amenities necessary to prepare a heart-warming meal for the family to enjoy gathered around the dining table.

As the evening grows darker, head upstairs where you have the choice of two bedrooms, a king-size or a twin, both decorated with a neutral colour scheme and sustaining the property's delightful traditional character through the wooden furnishings.

The king-size bedroom benefits from patio doors, flooding the room with natural light and leading to the raised garden area at the back of the property, where you can enjoy a refreshing glass of wine with your loved one with a view of the surrounding greenery in the evening.

Completing the first floor is the newly renovated family bathroom, contemporary in design with gleaming silver accents and featuring a bath with an overhead shower, giving you the choice of enjoying a leisurely soak or washing away the day.

Take a stroll into the village of Arnside, home to an array of quaint shops, cafes and restaurants, making a stop at The Albion, a traditional waterfront pub where you can indulge in a well-deserved pit stop and soak in the views across the estuary.

Take on the challenge of the Cross Bay Walk, an 8-mile guided tour crossing the sands of the ever-changing flats and channels of Morecambe Bay to reach the village of Kent's Bank.

Travel further afield to the historic market town of Kendal, home to the Kendal mint cake, where limestone buildings line the streets, housing an array of independent shops to pick up a keepsake of your trip.

Discover the local heritage with a visit to The Quaker Tapestry Museum and the medieval ruins of Kendal Castle or take in the scenic view across the rooftops of Kendal at Serpentine Woods.

Perfectly positioned between both The Lake District National Park and The Yorkshire Dales National Park, there are plenty of walking, hiking and cycling routes within easy reach to suit all abilities.

Thrill seekers can climb to the summit of Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England or explore the exciting depths of White Scar Cave in the Yorkshire Dales.

The Coach House is your perfect base for a memorable trip to the Lakes,

About the location


Kendal 10 miles; Windermere 17 miles.

Arnside is situated on the southernmost tip of the Lake District in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where low limestone hills, marshy plains and deciduous woodlands characterise the surrounding land. This former fishing port has retained many of the features from its past. The beautiful pier and port areas of the village offer stunning views across the Kent Estuary, as well as providing an enduring reminder of Arnside's illustrious history. To the south of the village are the 15th century Pele Towers, which were constructed to defend against the marauding Scots. The local surrounding area is a nature lover's paradise with stunning limestone pavements and wonderful woodland walks through countryside alive with rare plants, trees and wildlife. The internationally renowned Leighton Moss RSPB Reserve is also just one mile away. Guided walks across the Kent Estuary are available, showing the full splendour of the shore and surrounding area. Within easy touring distance are the Lake District and Lune Valley, the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland.
