This beautifully presented, semi-detached bungalow right next to the beach has all the ingredients for a memorable stay. With a thriving herring fishing industry, Allonby is full of interesting architecture offering a glimpse into its maritime past. Captains Cottage has its own place in history, a former stables once used to house the village donkeys and commanding a prominent position right on the beachside. Now converted, this stunning holiday home offers all the features you would expect from a modern holiday home.

Great for those wanting easy access all on one level, Captains Cottage comfortably sleeps up to six guests in two spacious double bedrooms and one twin bedded room, making it ideal for couples and families. The tasteful décor will appeal to those who prefer a more modern feel to their holiday home, whilst remaining in keeping with its coastal beginnings. The sea can be viewed from the window in the living room and on sunny days guests can enjoy sitting out in the courtyard garden complete with table and chairs, or continue through the gate and within 50 yards you arrive at the famous Allonby Beach. After a long walk along the shore, you can throw a couple of logs on the wood burner and put your feet up in front of the TV. The property also has a bathroom where you will find a shower and a full size bath, perfect for a relaxing soak after a day of exploring. A modern and well-equipped kitchen finishes off this stunning property.

This stretch of coastline has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the growing popularity of this seaside village is evident. With its long stretch of sandy beach it’s the perfect place to bring your pets along for exercise and it’s also great for the kids. You can enjoy views across the Solway Estuary over to mountains in southern Scotland. For those seeking more rugged outdoor adventure you’re only a 10-mile drive to the Lake District National Park, home to the famous Lakes Distillery offering guided tours and tastings, and 16 miles to your nearest lake, Bassenthwaite. Visit the Lake District Wildlife Park with over 100 species of exotic animals, sure to be a fun-filled day out for all ages. The village shop, tea rooms and fish and chip shop are also within easy reach on foot, as are two village pubs, the first of which is just 350 yards away, across the road. Beach 50 yards. Shop 520 yards, pub and restaurant 350 yards.

    there were 4 of us & 2 had 2 sit on kitchen chairs 2 ,watch television as 1 couch sat at a terrible angle & u had 2 twist ur neck 2 c it. also big heavy gate had 2 be lifted up to close properly, i was the only 1 who could do it.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Many thanks for taking the time to review our cottage. We are sorry you found the TV viewing angle difficult, it is on an adjustable bracket however we will review how this is placed. We also take note of the gate weight and are now in the process of replacing it with a lighter gate. Kindly regards Anna & Ian.
