  • "Lovely big bungalow."

    Lovely patio out the back with table and chairs. Beds super comfortable!! Unfortunately the toilet seat was very loose and the shower hose Leaked at the top. The keysafe Was also broken. Would have been nice to have bins in the bedrooms.

  • "Lovely bungalow, clean with a home from home feeling."

    Would only suggest for the future to mention there is no onsite parking but ample street parking, might be an ideal to get a nest of tables for the lounge should you be seated at far end on the other 2 sofas and a shower unit to store toiletries within the shower area would be great. Few extra kitchen utensils like scissors and cooking tongs would be welcomed. Bungalow had lovely patio area with great views afar. Owner came up for a chat and to introduce himself, very polite and welcoming. We will certainly be booking again next year. Property very clean. Thanks

  • "The cottage is clean, bright and spacious in a very quiet village with west-facing views from the rear and patio across miles of open countryside which afforded us many gorgeous sunsets over the Solway Firth in the distance."

    Its remote location is ideal for peace and quiet whilst still offering easy and relatively short drives to many lovely places such as Cockermouth and Keswick. We do want to make some suggestions that we believe would benefit future guests. A 'welcome pack' upon arrival, containing a few basics (especially milk) is always a good thing. There are two wardrobes which, between them, need many more than the six hangers we were provided with. Include hairdryer in the description. Before arrival, we were unsure if one would be available (there was) so we phoned Sykes to ask but they did not get back to us as promised. There were just a couple of wall-mounted mirrors and no bedroom chairs to sit on. A dressing table and / or a movable mirror positioned near to a socket with a small stool to sit on would be most welcome. We stayed during a hot week in June and would have welcomed some lightweight bedding / blankets as the duvets were far too warm. Please add a cradle / basket in the shower cubicle to hold soap / shampoo etc. For basic domestic tasks please provide some tea towels, clothes washing powder / detergent plus pegs for the clothes line - which would also benefit from being raised at one end to prevent longer items trailing on the ground. On a number of evenings we were shocked when the owners appeared unexpectedly in the garden and right outside the windows. It was a June heatwave when we stayed, and we understand that there was a need to water the plants, but a prearranged time or a knock at the door would have been the correct way to do this. We felt our privacy was invaded. The description also needs updating in regards to the The Last Man Inn pub next door which (at the time of writing) is only serving drinks, not food. The directions provided by Sykes would also be much improved, and save visitors time, if they stated that the cottage is immediately next door to it. This feedback may seem to be weighted towards the things we found wanting (hopefully to be taken as constructive feedback, not outright criticism) but overall the cottage is a fine place to take a restful and tranquil holiday in a clean and comfortable cottage.

  • "The accommodation was very lovely and had great facilities."

    The hosts were very nice and welcoming and on hand for anything needed. Felt very at home for the week. Sat out on the patio overlooking a field of sheep most evenings. Property was in close proximity to other properties but still very quiet location. Loved it

  • "Modern, very clean, well kept bungalow with amazing views across the Solway Firth."

    We had a really comfortable stay and parking out on the road was no problem. It was a quiet village with good access to the northern lakes and away from a lot of the other tourists. It was child friendly too and they couldn't believe they had TVs in their room! The only thing that would have been nice to have was oven gloves. Thanks for a great stay.

  • "The property was stunning and even better than the pictures A perfect base for for a Cumbrian getaway."

    Plenty of room, cosy and everything you require. Couldn't of asked for more. The listing does state off road parking for a small car this isn't the case, but also isn't a problem as plenty of space to park on the road outside.

  • "We booked this property during the kids half term break!"

    Although it was a last minute booking, we had a quick response from the owners of the property. The property itself exceeded our expectations and located in a quiet village. We had a wonderful 3 night stay and very convenient to drive to all the attractions in Lake District. The owner was able to accommodate our request, hair dryer in particular. We were touched by the kind gesture and he offered that we can check out late or stay for another night. We will definitely come back in the summer time and this place is highly recommended for everyone.

    A very modern television but even my Grandkids couldn’t set it up . The tv signal was very poor, sometimes cutting out every few minutes. There is no parking space, only on the road. But after saying that we had a lovely week . with TVs in all three bedrooms. Very modern kitchen and bathroom.

The property

Aspatria 2.6 miles.

Perfectly positioned in the sleepy village of Plumbland, set amidst the beautiful landscapes of the Allerdale district is The Croft Bungalow, an elegantly appointed property offering an idyllic base for touring Cumbria.

The single-storey dwelling is situated just a stone’s throw away from the Lake District National Park, as well as the beautiful Cumbrian coastline, offering the best of both coast and countryside for you and your loved ones to enjoy.

Enter into the property to find the delightfully decorated sitting room, featuring a large picture window, which affords a constant connection with the endearing village, whilst the three sofas invite you to relax in front of the Smart TV and the gas fire offers a gentle warmth.

Slip through the far door to find the kitchen/diner, where the contemporary suite boasts a number of modern touches and integrated appliances, sure to encourage the chef of group to rustle up family-favourite dishes, whilst the elegantly-presented dining table offers a sociable spot for enjoying the company of your loved ones over good food and drinks!

As the evening grows darker, catch your rest within one of the three bedrooms, the master suite notable for its sumptuous double bed, piled with plump cushions and a TV, perfect for those lazing Sunday mornings.

Bedroom two has another double bed, whilst the third and final bedroom is a bunk bed layout, perfectly arranged to suit groups of couples, friends or families with children.

The garden at The Croft Bungalow is as equally as impressive, with a rear patio providing great views across the countryside landscape, with table and chairs for alfresco dining and the front garden offers space for your canine companion to stretch his legs and a charming pond to admire.

For the evenings where you do not feel like cooking, be sure to linger over a pint at the neighbouring pub, the Last Man Inn before sampling their excellent home-cooked dining menu.

Alternatively, journey into the nearby town of Aspatria, where you will find a small collection of pubs, takeaways and shops, as well as a working railway, easily connecting you to Maryport and Carlisle and the church of St Kentigern, home to an avenue of yew trees, which leads to the site where a Norman church once stood.

Avid ramblers can don their boots and visit the Lake District National Park, where a network of paths and trails are awaiting to be explored, whilst beachcombers can follow along the picturesque Solway Coast.

Be sure to brush up on the local history with a visit to the National Trust property of Wordsworth House and Garden or spend a tranquil afternoon at Mirehouse & Gardens with park well-worth exploring.

Those with children will enjoy the Lake District Wildlife Park, where over 100 species of exotic animals live at the 25-acre park or you could meet the alpacas at the Lakes Distillery, there is certainly something for everyone here!

Travel slightly further into the national park to find Keswick, where you can enjoy the waters of Derwentwater, marvel at the offbeat collection at Keswick Museum and visit the National Trust Derwent Island House for a unique afternoon out.

With all of this and much more to enjoy, bring your loved ones to The Croft Bungalow for an exceptional stay in Cumbria.
