Harbourside House is in a little known location on the Southwest coast of
Cumbria on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park.
The house is
one of a row of terraced cottages overlooking the River Lazy as it joins
the sea and has been totally refurbished including the addition of a first
floor conservatory so the changing view can be enjoyed whatever the
It is a place to relax, walk from, or use as a base for exploring
the coastal or mountainous areas with it's activities and views to suit all.
The house is on three levels with bedrooms on ground and top floors.
The middle floor is totally open plan living with conservatory, lounge, dining area and kitchen.
The kitchen area has a large table top combo oven and a second small microwave oven.
In the draws you will find a slow cooker (great for days out) and a halogen oven option !
Whilst refurbishing we took the opportunity of further insulating the walls making the gas central heating very efficient so you can keep really cosy when it's cold outside making it suitable for year round breaks.
The village has a convenience store, post office, cash point, pubs and a
fish and chip shop and a very popular cafe by the beach.
