  • “Only a few annoying things like handles coming off bedroon drawers creaking wardrobe doors and floor very loud, no bath mat in shower was quite slippery for us older ones.”

    That said we found the cottage how we expected very clean had all mode cons and lovely crockery . the beds were very comfortable and all the family commented on them. We loved the large table in the kitchen were we could all be together while cooking . Our dog loved the large garden which was very safe for him. We had a great time being together again.

About the property

A quaint, black and white, 17th century semi-detached picture postcard cottage, in the peaceful seaside village of Silecroft, on the edge of the Lake District National Park.

This superb, welcoming cottage radiates traditional charm from every room, from its magnificent original, spiralled Edwardian staircase to its beamed ceilings and nooks and crannies adding character to your stay.

It’s delightfully presented with three large bedrooms, a family bathroom, a spacious sitting room with a sofa bed offering additional space, a comfortable main sitting room with an open fire and a charming kitchen/diner with a cosy woodburning stove.

Outside is a sunny front garden whilst the rear garden has a lawn with pretty flower borders, furniture and a large parasol for sunny days, along with lots of space to enjoy this tranquil location.

An excellent pub is just a short walk away, whilst the beautiful, safe sandy beach is approximately half a mile away, the perfect place for a relaxed stroll beside the sea.

Silecroft Beach also attracts a lot of sand and wave surfers during the autumn months.

For a livelier day on the sand after sunbathing and swimming, Silecroft is also home to a horse trekking centre specialising in memorable coastal rides, just a short walk from your cottage, so you can easily take a gallop along the shore.

The Cumbrian Heavy Horses are also based nearby and can be frequently seen trekking over Black Combe, which sits as a magnificent backdrop to Silecroft.

A bracing 2-hour climb up Black Combe is rewarded with views reaching as far as Wales, Scotland and the Isle of Man.

There's also a 9-hole links golf course nearby, whilst the village train station takes you to the West Coast Branch line for scenic day trips, allowing you to leave the car behind.

Coniston Water, the third largest lake in the Lake District, is 30 minutes’ drive away and the beautiful Wasdale Head, lying under the shadows of Scafell, is 24 miles away.

This superb cottage with excellent facilities on hand is a perfect place for a holiday with friends or family at anytime of the year.

About the location


Millom 4 miles; Broughton-in-Furness 8 miles; Coniston 17 miles.

The small hamlet of Silecroft is situated on Cumbria’s west coast, within the Lake District National Park, less than five miles from the town of Millom and within driving distance of Broughton-in-Furness. The hamlet offers an excellent pub serving food and a riding stable, plus it’s set on the West Coast branch line, which travels up the Cumbrian coast to as far as Carlisle. Just a short walk away is a sand and shingle beach, plus Black Combe Hill is close by, where from the top wonderful views can be seen, and a links golf course is also within easy reach. Millom is close by and offers a number of shops and pubs, as well as a museum, which showcases the town’s history. Broughton-in-Furness, dating back to the 11th century has much to offer the visitor with a cobbled square, shops and pubs, and it’s also a great starting base from where walks and climbing can be enjoyed with opportunities to explore the Duddon Valley and other Lake District fells. Further afield, right into the heart of the Lake District National Park is the beautiful Coniston Water, and Windermere, Ambleside, as well as many other interesting places are just waiting to be discovered.
