The property

The coastal village of Allonby 2.8 miles. Nestled in the idyllic hamlet of Allerby, near the village of Allonby, Cumbria, is this beautifully presented barn conversion. This inviting dwelling is an ideal base for families and friends looking to explore the northern lakes, Cumbria’s coastline or venture to the buzzing foodie market town of Cockermouth and Keswick. Upon arrival you are greeted by off-road parking for two cars, positioned directly outside the property so you can easily unload your belongings. Step inside and make yourself at home in the light and airy open plan lounge and dining area, complete with two sofas, an electric fire and Smart TV, inviting you to settle down and enjoy a movie night. Dust off those cooking books in the kitchen, equipped with all the necessities for home-cooking, including a washing machine so you won’t have to pack your whole wardrobe! Once breakfast, lunch or dinner is ready, gather at the dining table, comfortably seating six people, a great spot for spending quality time together and planning the following day’s adventures. Spend a moment in the front patio, sipping on a cold beverage or morning coffee. The ground-floor plays host to a double bedroom and wet room, ideal for those with limited mobility, whilst the second-floor offers two neatly presented doubles boasting exposed beams, one of which features an en-suite bathroom and the other offers an en-suite shower room. Head north to the village of Allonby, home to two pubs where you can enjoy a pint and bite to eat, a tearoom and a village store which has sold homemade ice cream for over 100 years. Keen cyclists can join the Solway Coaster Cycleway, offering a scenic trail along the coast, whilst those looking to get their steps in can explore the Cumbria Coastal Walk which passes through the village, or how about a round of golf at one of the nearby courses? For something different visit The Lakes Distillery at Bassenthwaite or The Beacon at historic Whitehaven. The delights of the Lake District await, with excellent hiking routes around Skiddaw and the attractions of Keswick easily accessible. Choose The Granary for a special break to Cumbria.

About the location

ALLONBY

Maryport 5 miles; Cockermouth 10 miles; Keswick 23 miles; Carlisle 23 miles.

The popular seaside resort of Allonby sits along a five-mile crescent shaped bay on the Solway Firth, offering a clean shingle beach on high tide but miles of safe sand in an endless beach as the tide goes out. The flat terrain is ideal for walkers of all ages and for dogs, and is also popular with windsurfers and kite flyers, plus there are beautiful panoramic views across the bay towards Criffel and the Galloway Hills of Scotland. The village is set in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and has kept much of its Georgian and Victorian charm, with cobbled lanes, curious corners to explore and several splendid buildings, one of which is The Baths, an imposing colonnaded building.The majestic Lake District Fells make a perfect backdrop to the village. The Cumbria Coastal Walk and Allerdale Ramble pass through the village. Links golf is available at Maryport Golf Course and the world renowned Silloth Golf course. A short trip will take you to the historic city of Carlisle, nip over the border to Gretna Green, experience the 2000-year legacy of Hadrian’s Wall or enjoy fun packed days out exploring the beautiful Western Lakes and fells where there is a wealth of things to see and do, including Hadrian's Cycleway where you can take in the stunning views on your journey. The stunning Whinlatter Forest Park, near Keswick is a haven for mountain bikers and walkers and the Go Ape high wire adventure course is ideal for the more adventurous. Allonby is a perfect year-round retreat providing an ideal base from which to explore the area.
