    Just got back from one week stay at race side cottage. Absolutely love it! ideal place to have a relaxing peaceful family holiday. Me and my husband went with our teenage daughters, five year old son and our two dogs and can all honestly say that we had the best time. The cottage was well equipped with everything. My little boy loved the tree house and playing football in the garden, the girls were entertained with all the dvd's and board games. Cottage itself was beautiful inside and out very cosy and comfortable. We could only get Wi Fi in the back bedroom and no where else in the cottage but to be honest we went there to get away from all the devices so we could have quality time with the kids so I quite liked that, no sure the kids would agreed though. The town centre is close by approx. 2-3miles for local shops, beach is just over a mile away, but wouldn't advise trying to walk there via the back farmland very muddy and stinky, even with wellies it can be a challenge, the beach is lovely down there though. Haverigg beach is much easier, have to go by car but plenty of parking and only 10mins drive, well worth it, we was on there most morning with the dogs, sand dunes and parks great for the kids also a little beach café, pub and fish and chip shop and convenient store that sell homemade cakes on the corner. Viv and Ron the owners live above but you don't really know they are there, they are very welcoming and on hand to help if you need anything. Very lovely people, had homemade cakes made for us on arrival, they supplied some cupboard essentials for when we got there so we didn't need to rush out and get them straight away, Viv also made us some bread during the week which was a lovely touch. Only negative would be that the location of the cottage is a bit secluded, all amenities are close by but the only way to get to them is by car, you are very limited to where you can walk without hitting private land or roads, so was hard to take the dogs on long walks if we didn't want to use the car. There is black Combe just 10mins down the road where you can park at the bottom and the public foot path leads up the mounting once up there is some amazing breath taking views. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone, our first time staying in a cottage and it was a great experience for all the family will definitely be back, anyone staying at this cottage would not be disappointed it was fab!

The property

A delightful, stone-built wing of a converted barn situated in a quiet location within the small hamlet of Kirksanton.

This all ground floor Kirksanton cottage provides warm and cosy accommodation in an unspoilt and largely undiscovered corner of the Lake District.

Furnished and styled in a contemporary style throughout, this Kirksanton cottage features a lovely open plan living area, two excellent bedrooms and a bathroom.

Outside this Kirksanton cottage there is a small private patio area, which is ideal for dining alfresco, or relax in the owner's beautiful mature gardens.

Just a stone's throw away from this Kirksanton cottage is the local pub, where you can enjoy a refreshing beverage and bar meal, whilst the delightful beach is a fifteen minute walk away, plus there are walking opportunities available from the doorstep, including Black Combe, a challenging ascent well worth the effort for the breathtaking views on offer.

There are many idyllic coastal walks available and for the more energetic, the magnificent fells at Wasdale Head, including Scafell, are nearby.
