  • "Despite it being a nice looking property in a nice area, the first thing we noticed when we walked in was the smell of damp."

    The second thing was how infested the kitchen/dining area was with ants. The bed sheets also shared the same smell and the mattresses were so hard to sleep on.

  • "This was a well maintained and very lovely holiday home."

    The upstairs living space was a delight, with spectacular view across Morecombe bay. The bedrooms bathrooms and kitchen were clean and well stocked. There was a very large garden at the rear that we also enjoyed. The owner had left good clear instructions for all aspects of the property. Even the narrow gate was not an issue for our larger than normal SUV. A lovely holiday and would definitely return again. Thank you

  • "It was a cottage that was very clean with everything we needed."

    The two problems were: The walk to the pub was not all on a footpath and the road was quite fast. The main drawback was getting in and out of the drive by car as you were straight onto the road and it was difficult to see either direction. The mirror provided was of some help but line of sight needs attention. Overall we had a good stay in the clean and well equipped cottage.

  • "Excellent property which was fully equipped and very clean."

    Great location to explore Cumbria. Would definitely book again constructive feedback, oven was not brilliant to cook in ( might have been us) and you need to reverse in to the driveway of a main road but it is manageable. The driveway could do with a tidy up from mud. Minor points overall great place and would book again

  • "All bedrooms a good size."

    Upstairs living room great and loved the views. Liked the garden at the back and the fact the property had open field on one side. Getting on the drive at the front was a challenge. We drive a jazz but anything bigger would be impossible to get through the gateway. Would be good to widen the entrance. Minor points are that there was no clock in the property and the front and back door locks were stiff to operate. We are considering booking again in the future and recommend the property to others.

  • "Lovely bathrooms and upstairs living room."

    A fousty smell in kitchen and kitchen cupboards, it improved over week by leaving doors and windows open. Messy and grubby under sink cupboard. Patio area felt too exposed to neighbours to sit outside. Very tight difficult gateway into the property. A good location for exploring the southern lakes. Just not what we are used to from Sykes rating for a 4 star 'excellent throughout' .

The property

Nestled in idyllic, emerald countryside on the outskirts of Flookburgh in Cumbria, lies the charming, three-bedroom holiday home of Bay View Cottage.

Boasting off-road parking, enclosed lawned gardens to the front and rear, and superb views looking out upon Morecambe Bay and the Arnside & Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this delightful property makes a perfect base for a family or group of six seeking a refreshing, self-catered escape just south of the magnificent Lake District National Park.

Step into your lovely new home-from-home, where you will be greeted by a collection of well-presented living spaces.

On the ground-floor, you will find a fully-equipped kitchen where the chosen chef can get to work rustling up a delicious, home-cooked dinner for the whole group.

Savour your meals with your loved ones at the dining table, before you head upstairs to kick back and relax in the sitting room, the space kept warm by a tasteful woodburning stove, as you enjoy a movie marathon on the sleek, Smart TV.

When sleep inevitably calls, head downstairs to rejuvenate with a bath or shower before you hunker down for a much-needed rest in one of three plush bedrooms.

Wake up to amazing views of the surrounding rolling hills before you head out to explore your local area.

A brief walk into Flookburgh will bring you to the Premier convenience store where you can stock up on homely essentials, whilst a hearty pub lunch can be had at the family-ran Hope & Anchor or nearby Pheasant Inn.

A short drive away, you can enjoy a peaceful stroll through the Holker Hall & Gardens or the Ornamental Gardens in Grange-over-Sands, or even take in views of the bay at Humphrey Head.

For a day out, head north to close-by Cartmel, a historic Cumbrian village home to the Cartmel Racecourse, the tranquil waters of the River Eea, and the world-famous, Michelin-starred restaurant of L'Enclume, which offers one of the best dining experiences in the whole country.

Make your next stay in Cumbria one to remember by booking a stay at Bay View Cottage.

About the location


Cartmel 2 miles; Grange-over-Sands 3 miles.

A superb base to explore this interesting and beautiful area, the historic village of Flookburgh is set near the shores of Morecambe Bay on the outskirts of the magnificent Lake District. It is thought that the locally-caught Fluke fish take their name after the village, and once, Flookburgh was a popular resting point for travellers crossing the sands from Lancaster and still provides a home for cockle and shrimp fishers. Facilities in the village include a pub, a grocery, a chemist, a Post Office and two food outlets. The Cumbrian Coastal Way footpath passes nearby and a short walk away from the village is delightful countryside, such as Humphrey Head, views of the bay, with its wading bird life, and Coniston's mountain range. A few minutes’ drive or a pleasant off road walk leads to historic Cartmel, with its beautiful Priory, popular race course, antique and gift shops, pubs and restaurants; including the Michelin Star-rated L’Enclume. Just over a mile away you will find the beautiful house and gardens of Holker Hall and also nearby you can try horse riding just six miles to the north at Bigland, or visit the Edwardian resort of Grange, which offers a range of hotels, restaurants, shops, a traffic-free promenade, ornamental gardens and golf courses.
