  • "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

  • "Cosy Bee is a great little cottage that suited our needs perfectly, there is no doubt that we will be back next year."

    If I have to make a comment about improvement: There is a street light outside the main bedroom window, a heavier curtain or a blackout screen would help to cut out the permanent daylight.

    Thank you for your feedback and so glad you like the cottage. There are blinds and curtains in the main bedroom so I am so sorry you found the street light shining in - we will check out options when we next stay. Thanks Property Owner

    Other than that we enjoyed it, beds comfy, cosy lounge and central to village. This is our 2nd time here and will probably come again.

    Thank you for your feedback. Glad you find it comfy and a nice location. Property Owner

  • "We had a few problems with this property found dried food on plates and pans, the fridge was freezing fresh products even when on a low setting it needed to be totally defrosted."

    The oven didn't work but we only wanted to use it 1 night to cook a pizza that ended up in the bin. Bathroom needs a good revamp. Hoover needed in the lounge. Beds and bedding very good also good tv and wi-fi. A little more attention to this property would do wonders what a shame because it is in a great little village.

    Thank you for your feedback and we are so sorry for the issues you have raised. We visit / stay at Cosy Bee regularly and pride ourselves on keeping it in good order. Cosy Bee is professionally cleaned on each changeover and all appliances have been fully checked since your visit. Thank you. Tim Property Owner

    Comfortable beds and furniture which made our stay welcoming. We visited in November but we were warm and comfortable.

  • "Overall excellent."

    Very clean and tidy in appearance. Well organised. The firm mattress was great for our back issues. Very good internet speed, and TV Netflix worked no problem. The location is a winner, with cafes nearby and the coast down the road. My only criticisms are. . . . . . There was a slight smell in the living room, possibly from a previous dog. The shower had weak water pressure. I would consider adding an ironing board and iron. Thanks for a stress free stay. It lived up to expectations!

  • "Cosy Bee was perfect for the two of us and our little dog."

    It'd be good for a couple with 2 young children but it's worth noting that the lounge might be a bit small for 4 adults. We found lots of beautiful walks/views locally and around Arnside, Silverdale and Crook O' Lune and we intend to come back again.

  • "A compact two-bedroom bungalow which was an ideal base for the week at a sensible price."

    The orthopaedic mattresses suited us perfectly and the smart TV was a bonus with dark November evenings. The location in the picturesque part of Heysham was pleasing with a short walk to the cliffs with the Saxon chapel and to the beach. We would return to this rental in due course if it is still available.

  • "A nice tidy little bungalow, the only little niggles for me were just personal things, like no blind at the huge bathroom window, the bed was very hard, and I couldn't sleep under a duvet that was covered in bees (we'd taken our own duvet and cover so that was ok!"

    ) . As I say just personal things, other people wouldn't be bothered, so I would definitely recommend this holiday bungalow. It is in a very quite little street, so very peaceful, with lots of walks along the coast, and the beach just a few minutes walk away - ideal for us with our two standard poodles.

  • "Cottage obviously recently refurbished pleasant interior in a good location of Heysham village."

    Kitchen well equipped though short of a few basic items. Unfortunately we cut our stay short due to the very hard beds and pillows. We also found the WIFI could be a bit troublesome. On the plus side the cottage is warm, with a comfy lounge with a good television (though more suited to just a couple due to only one sofa) fine though for a short stay.

    Dear guests - we are so sorry to read that you found the beds/pillows hard - they are all new and we and other family members have stayed there and found them comfortable. 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. As this is a newly refurbished holiday home we are still getting to know what our family, friend’s and others would like. Thank you Property Owner

The property

Cosy Bee is a delightful ground-floor cottage that can be found lying at the centre of Heysham village.

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.
