  • "A well appointed cottage."

    Beautiful. For dog owners, this is the cottage for you. An enclosed garden with different levels and plants to sniff. A dog box with blankets available to use. Wonderful walks on your door step. It is a very dog friendly area. Never seen so many Frenchies in my life! This was truly the best cottage we have stayed in. Exceptionally clean and well supplied with everything you need.

  • "A lovely bungalow in an interesting part of town within a very short walking distance of the sea and coastal path."

    Rear garden area totally safe for a four legged friend and lends itself to sitting outside in the sun should you be lucky enough to get any. Recommend the Chinese takeaway just round the corner excellent meals. Viking rock cut graves and ruined chapel an interesting visit. Would definitely stay here again, very satisfied with our stay.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback - so glad you like our little house as much as we do! Property Owner

  • "We were very comfortable and warm in Cosy Bee, despite extremely cold weather."

    Everything we needed including escape free yard for my beagle. Great location for walking and driving along the coast and good pubs and cafes in the village. Only downsides, on arrival the front door key was so bent we had to borrow a hammer from a neighbour to straighten it before we could get in. It was exchanged a couple of days later but the door lock maybe needs replacing as it was still a struggle, also the vacuum cleaner was hopeless and needs a clean itself. Otherwise good stay and good value for money.

    Thank you for your feedback - will seek to replace vacuum cleaner in coming weeks. So sorry about key / lock which is new information to us and we will seek to resolve. Property Owner

    It is in a very quiet and friendly village with lots of places close by to visit with the dog. We found the cottage very clean and had all facilities that you could ask for, with some extra's for the dog such as throws for the furniture. My mother is blind and found the layout of the Cosy Bee easy to navigate. We did find the beds a little too firm but that is a personal preference not a negative reflection on the cottage itself. We will definitely look at returning in the future.

    I went with my 2 rescue dogs 8-12 May. The bungalow was beautiful and immaculately clean. I took 2 big throws with me for the furniture but after reading the info folder I found about 6 in the property and a big bean bag, dog bowls and games.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Cosy Bee and are very grateful to the owner(s) for letting us take our three small dogs to stay- our blind poodle spent most of the week in the cottage but was no trouble and ( as usual!"

    ) slept most of the day. Cosy Bee is in a great location- having lived in Lancaster and Morecambe I knew what to expect and was familiar with Heysham Village- the steepness of the drive came as no surprise! It was very peaceful at night and the next door neighbours, who we met very briefly, were friendly. The facilities were good and provided everything we needed, I especially liked the pretty enclosed garden. The beds were comfy and overall the cottage was clean, albeit for some slight discolouration to the living room carpet which is only to be expected in a dog-accommodating dwelling and it didn’t matter to us. The only reason why I am grading 4 stars is because I personally found the living room sofa very uncomfortable ( I have back and neck issues). After a long day of walking I could have done with a firmer sofa to chill on- but I compensated by going to bed to lie down . The handbook was very informative and helpful. We left comments in the Visitor Book about our stay and I wouldn’t hesitate to book again if and when I am next up that way. Many thanks once again to the owner from 2 happy hoomans and 3 happy pups.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback - we have just been informed about the carpet in the living room and will be seeking to replace as soon as possible. We are glad you and your dogs had a good stay. Property Owner

We are not aware of any WiFi issues which we would have sought to resolve if we had been advised. We will look to ensure any items considered needed for the kitchen are added. We will provide another easy chair to go with the 3 seater sofa and pouffe in place.

Sitting close to the coast, this charming dwelling provides a fabulous base for small groups of up to four seeking an escape by sea with their four-legged friends.

Snuggle in the lounge on the plush grey sofa and easy chair, by the electric fire, turning on the wall-mounted Smart TV as you relax and unwind with a movie, before indulging in a hearty dinner at the dining table, lovingly prepared in the well-equipped kitchen filled with handy utensils and appliances such as the gas cooker and electric stove.

Make yourself at home in the pretty double bedroom, decorated with bright yellow hues making this a wonderful space to retire to at the end of the evening.

Guests staying in the attractive twin bedroom can unpack their belongings into the storage provided within the wardrobes and admire the views of the well-kept back garden from the window within.

Freshen up in the airy shower room with a wash in the spacious walk-in shower, before grabbing your towel from the chair and getting ready for a fun-filled day exploring the local area.

Make the most of the enclosed back garden by dining alfresco at the outdoor seating area or stepping outside for a breath of fresh air as you sip on a warm brew on a crisp winter's morning.

Hike up the famous Heysham Cliffs to see breath-taking landscapes before descending down to incredible ruins of St Patrick's Chapel and learning of the local history on a visit to Heysham Heritage Centre.

Enjoy a trip to Morecambe for a stroll along The Stone Jetty before grabbing a bite to eat at one of the nearby cafes, washing it down with a tasty pint in the local pub.

Hop in the car and head for the City of Lancaster to enjoy a day of shopping and exploring historical sites such as the magnificent 12th-century Lancaster Castle, the ancient Roman Bath House and the 18th-century Judges Lodgings Museum home to grand Gillow furniture and fabulous art.

Be sure to stay at Cosy Bee for a relaxing retreat by the Lancashire seaside.
