Just a stroll from the beach and enjoying a fantastic sea view, this lovely ground-floor apartment makes a great holiday retreat for a couple seeking a tranquil getaway in a beautiful part of Cumbria.

Allonby is a welcoming seaside village known for its 5-mile beach stretching around the bay. Situated along the Cumbria Coastal Way, the village makes a wonderful base for breathtaking coastal walks and has a number of friendly pubs and fish and chip shops. Ideal for exploring the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Allonby is to the north of Maryport (5.5 miles), a lively harbour town with attractions including the Maryport Lighthouse, Senhouse Roman Museum and the Lake District Coast Aquarium. Heading inland, the bustling Georgian town of Cockermouth (10 miles) is the birthplace of William Wordsworth, and is a picturesque entry point to the northern reaches of the Lake District, with Bassenthwaite Lake within easy reach (16 miles).

On entering this beautifully renovated and relaxing ground-floor apartment, the bright and tasteful lounge/diner makes a lovely space to unwind in. With cosy seating, a wood burner-effect electric fire and a TV, this is a great space to snuggle up with a favourite film or a good book, or for chatting late into the night. The foldaway table provides a convenient spot for sharing a romantic meal for two, which you can rustle up in the fully equipped kitchen where you will find an electric oven and gas hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and washer/dryer. The light-filled and airy double bedroom features plenty of storage space with built-in wardrobes, along with a high ceiling and fantastic large windows with sea views. There’s also a stylish shower room with a large shower cubicle and WC.

Stepping outside, the little patio area provides a charming spot for a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. There’s ample car parking available, shared with the other properties on-site.

The Cottage was in an excellent location and left in an impeccable condition . The fresh produce that was left was extremely welcome after a 7 hour drive! I cannot think of anything else that would have improved the cottage for rental. Scott was extremely helpful when there were minor issues or questions about the cottage or about the area . Thank Read moreyou both very much .... Hide

Note: As the postcode is used to identify the general area of the property, it may not always reflect its precise location, therefore please only use this map as a guide.

Whitstable is one of Kent’s most popular seaside towns, not only for its long shingle beaches, dotted with colourful huts and houses, but also for its annual Oyster Festival, when the town really comes alive. Here you can sample this renowned delicacy which has been collected in the area since Roman times and brings visitors from all over the globe to get a glimpse of the first catch of the season. Still a working harbour, you can sample a plethora of seafood from the stalls and restaurants as you watch the fishing boats return from sea, or pop up to the bohemian main street with its quirky colourful shops and galleries. Keep to the seaside theme and hire bikes to ride along the coast to Herne Bay just two miles away, or try the famous inland Crab and Winkle Way, which follows the old railway line between Whitstable and Canterbury and is packed with history and nostalgia. Relax with lazy days at the beach, building sandcastles and exploring hidden rock pools or take a long walk along the vast stretch of shingle beach. The area has lots of other beach walks, as well many country and woodland trails nearby, perfect for both you and the family dog! For a little culture, pay a visit to the town’s famous 18th century Castle and Gardens, Playhouse Theatre and Whitstable Museum and Gallery, all perfect for an afternoon or evening out. Only eight miles north of the cathedral city of Canterbury with its popular glass-fronted Marlowe Theatre, you are also just half an hour away from the up-and-coming seaside town of Margate and 45 minutes away from the port of Dover with its famous white cliffs. Slightly further afield, you will find the historic Cinque Ports towns of amongst others, Rye, Hastings and Tenterden where you will find a variety of spectacular monuments and beautiful castles to visit with all the family. Whitstable really is the perfect place for those who want to get back to how holidays used to be – full of fun, adventure and family.
