The property

Holly Cottage is a charming house settled in the centre of the historic, seaside village of St. Bees, Cumbria.

Set over two floors and sleeping up to four guests, Holly Cottage is a delightful setting for your next trip to Cumbria, within easy reach of the Lake District National Park and the beachfront.

Upon arrival, you will enter into a kitchen/diner that is well equipped for your self-catering needs, including a large fridge freezer, a modern oven and hob, and a washing machine.

Continuing through the property you discover a homely sitting room with plenty of seating to gather together and get comfy on, whilst watching your favourite film on the Smart TV; there's also an electric fire for extra warmth!

At the back of the house is the coastal themed bathroom, with a spacious shower over bath, basin, and WC.

In the evening head upstairs to one of two double bedrooms, with rear windows showcasing beautiful views of the countryside and distant views of the Irish sea; the second bedroom features extra seating for you to relax on with a warm cup of tea before going to the beachfront for the day.

Enjoy a light lunch with your group at the picnic table in the enclosed back garden, surrounded by the coastal breeze.

There is an off-road parking space for one car situated at the back of the property, providing easy access.

There are local amenities nearby, including St. Bees Convenience Store, Hartleys Beach Shop, and several local pubs.

If you're wanting to go to the beach, Holly Cottage is the perfect destination, as it is just a ten-minute walk away and next to the Saint Bees School Golf Course - great for all of the family!

St. Bees is home to the famous Coast to Coast Walk, a walking route that starts at the St. Bees Head, crosses the breadth of the North of England, and ends in Robin Hood's Bay, passing through the mountainous Lake District, the rolling Yorkshire Dales and the heather-clad North York Moors.

Speaking of national parks, the village is located on the outskirts of the gorgeous Lake District National Park where you can find an abundance of outdoor activities to do while admiring the charming sights of the Lakes.

For a cultural day out, a ten-minute drive takes you to the seaside resort town of Whitehaven, where you can visit The Beacon Museum and The Rum Story to learn about Whitehaven's history of being the UK's main Rum port or explore the plethora of historical landmarks the town has preserved.

About the location


Whitehaven 5 miles.

St. Bees is an historic seaside village on the west coast of Cumbria with a Norman priory and Elizabethan public school, as well as a shop, post office and old traditional pubs. It's an ideal base for exploring the western Lake District and Cumbrian coast, and is the start of the famous Wainwright coast to coast walk. St. Bees Head is the only major sea cliff between Wales and Scotland and is the only Heritage coastline in Cumbria. There is a fine beach and many wonderful walks are available along the clifftops, which are also home to one of England’s most important seabird colonies. There is also a nine-hole golf course in the village. Nearby Whitehaven, an elegant Georgian port, and the spectacular western Lakes, are more than worthy of a visit. Muncaster Castle is 8 miles away, as is the Eskdale and Ravenglass miniature railway. Cockermouth, the birth place of Wordsworth, and Keswick on Derwentwater are also within easy driving distance.
