    “This was our second stay and we have already booked for next spring The facilities are much above average compared to other cottages we have used.”

    Nothing if left to chance with everything provided (even a functioning laundry) How the owner Chris and Mark got everything into a relatively small bungalow without compromising comfort is beyond amazing. Lots of nice touches and spotlessly clean. This is a nice but relatively unknown area but with decent shops and cafes and a number of interesting places to see. History buffs can enjoy Bowness on Solway and Burgh by Sands where Romans built forts and started a Wall! And an ancient English ...

    Nothing if left to chance with everything provided (even a functioning laundry) How the owner Chris and Mark got everything into a relatively small bungalow without compromising comfort is beyond amazing. Lots of nice touches and spotlessly clean. This is a nice but relatively unknown area but with decent shops and cafes and a number of interesting places to see. History buffs can enjoy Bowness on Solway and Burgh by Sands where Romans built forts and started a Wall! And an ancient English king died and laid in state in a surviving church. Who knew that and how cool is it. Lake District and Carlisle, which also has a great history, are both within relatively short drives Go but leave a few spare weeks for me!

About the location

SILLOTH

Maryport 12 miles; Carlisle 23 miles.

The popular resort of Silloth in West Cumbria lies north of the Lake District on the shore of the Solway Firth. On the opposite shore lie the hills of Southern Galloway in Scotland and to the south Skiddaw and the Northern Fells can be seen. Silloth was renowned for its "invigorating air, temperate climate, airy streets, its promenade and beach". It has glorious sea and mountain views and the light and the sunsets are renowned. It was developed in the 1850s; the railway arrived in 1856, the docks were opened 3 years later. The Carr's biscuit factory flour mill opened in 1886. Silloth was for a time, one of the country’s premier seaside resorts. The town was laid out on a regular grid pattern and planned as a "health resort for the upper and middle classes". The streets running off the wide, tree lined, cobbled Criffel Street are all named after the rivers flowing into the Solway Firth. The 'Green', an ever present feature is 34 acres of open grassland and is communal space for all to enjoy. Silloth and Solway Golf Club, situated in the town is a championship course which is ranked No 1 by the National Club Golfer Magazine 2016 for both quality and value. There are superb walks, particularly along the coastline, west to Allonby and east to Grune Point. Birdwatching is ever present. Both the Lake District and the English Heritage site of Birdoswald Fort, Hadrian's Wall are an easy 40 minute drive away. With quiet country roads and the Cumbria Coastal Way this is an ideal location for cyclists and walkers.
