Offering the delightful fusion of a classic cottage with modern furnishings and decoration, this property can provide a group of up to four people with light and airy accommodation, just a stone's throw from the beach. Sleeping groups of up to four people, this property has been built from brick yet inside, has been decorated and furnished to exceedingly modern standards. It is conveniently located just next door to a pub, which also happens to belong to the owner so, although there is parking for up to two cars, there will be many evenings where you just won't need them! Central heating throughout warms the cottage in the colder months and... there is a feature fireplace in the living room. If you prefer to eat in, the kitchen is spacious and well equipped.
Amenities: Gas central heating with electric fire. Electric oven, gas hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, washing machine, TV with Freeview, DVD, CD/radio. WiFi available via arrangement with owner. Fuel and power inc. in rent. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot and highchair available. Roadside parking for 2 cars. One small/medium well-behaved dog welcome. Shop 1 min walk, pub 10 yards. Note: One of the twin bedrooms can only be accessed via the other bedroom. Note: The stairs in the property are quite steep and may not be suitable for those with limited mobility.
Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
Town: Silloth's location on the shores of the Solway Firth, facing the hills of the Southern Galloway and neatly bordered by the Lake District Fells, has attracted visitors for years. Its reputation for fabulous sunsets and sea views inspired the artist, Turner, to capture its atmosphere on canvas. The town itself was built as a railhead and a port in the 1850s and shipped in Irish Granite to build Christ Church, which is open to visitors. The streets are wide, stylish and lined with trees. Coupled with a beautiful promenade, this part of Cumbria could almost be a small French town. There is an 18-hole golf course, which was the 'home' course for Miss Cecillia Leitch, the most celebrated woman golfer of the 19th Century. In addition, there are many attractions around Silloth, such as Grune Point, a sandy, raised shingle beach approximately one mile long and supporting a community of specialist vegetation, including sea sandwort, sea-holly and sand couch-grass.
Additional amenities include: high chair, cooker.Read more

We thought everything about the cottage was perfect and the decor was lovely. The cottage was nice and warm with a bottle of wine as a pleasant gift.
The pub next door is very handy and the owners of the pub/cottage were always at the end of a telephone call.

This was the most comfortable cottage we have ever stayed in on our holidays, a real home from home. A perfect base for north west lakes, we loved it so much we are going back next year.

Lovely clean spacious cottage. Home from home. Had everything we needed plus more inc milk in the fridge and fruit platter with wine. Owners very friendly. They live in the pub next door if we needed them else left us to enjoy our stay. We had a 3yr old with us so was great to have a play park just minutes away. close to the sea and shops near by. Smoking is allowed and dogs r welcome, very ideal.
Perfect accomodation for playing golf at Silloth GC

Four golfers based ourselves in the apartment for a week, playing Silloth(lots)and other surrounding courses. Silloth GC is walking distance away and an ideal eaterie/base if you don't want to cook and also a magnificent golf course.
The apartment is very comfortable, well equipped and very handy for the pub next door. (good beer, friendly locals and a big screen TV)
As a base for golfers not wanting the formality of a hotel this is about as good as it gets and incredible value. Definitely highly recommended.

I chose Silloth as an area, away from the lakes and the tourist spots, but near enough to travel to them, which worked perfectly.
The cottage, I found to be of high standard which was perfect for me and my children. All the necessary amenities were catered for and the owners were more than happy to help in any way possible.
