    “We were a multi generation family of 13 and had a fantastic stay.”

    We were a bit worried after reading some of the reviews but were not disappointed it seems some over large group had trashed the place and they have had to rectify as much as possible as the feedback has come through and still working on it. The road has been renewed now so no problems there. The home was clean and plenty of towels, bedding etc including tea towels lots of cleaning materials should you need it as well.

    We were a bit worried after reading some of the reviews but were not disappointed it seems some over large group had trashed the place and they have had to rectify as much as possible as the feedback has come through and still working on it. The road has been renewed now so no problems there. The home was clean and plenty of towels, bedding etc including tea towels lots of cleaning materials should you need it as well. We had great weather so the outdoor kitchen was just the best for us. A great bbq and large pizza oven was a hit with fridge and sink area and great seating area. Games room was ok and a new air hockey table and a good supply of books/DVDS and an XBOX with games Living room comfortable and yes one settee was a bit broken but they had changed the layout so it doesn’t cause a problem. We cooked full English breakfast in the main kitchen and we had plenty of cooking equipment and crockery and the water supply was always very hot (I would warn people about that especially in the shower I think the temperature may need turning down at the boiler slightly). The little climbing frame was great but again said group broke the slide so there’s no slide now. Hot tub room great with a good seating area next to it although again we had good weather so spent a lot of it outside. The only thing I would say is to bring your own chairs if you like to be outside as the sun is in the hot tub area and the chairs that you could use from hot tub room weren’t as comfy luckily we had some camping chairs and some picnic blankets for those who wanted to lay out and sunbathe. There were plenty of places to visit in the area too. All in all we all had a great time and we didn’t go looking for all the little minor things people are moaning about. Thank you for a great stay

About the location

ABBEYTOWN

Silloth 6 miles; Wigton 6.5 miles; Cockermouth 17 miles; Carlisle 18 miles; Keswick 22 miles.

The village of Abbeytown is situated on the Solway Plain, on the edge of the Solway Coast, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, midway between Wigton and Silloth. Located within reach of the shores of Morecambe Estuary, Abbeytown was once one of the most important place in the north due its fine Cistercian Holmcultram Abbey, which was founded in 1150 around which much of the medieval village developed. The Cumbria Coastal Way passes through Abbeytown and from the village if you look south you will be able to admire the views of distant Lakeland fells and Skiddaw, whilst looking north are views of the Solway and Scottish hills. The 84 mile Hadrian's Wall starts in the west at nearby Bowness on Solway, and the Solway Coast is particularly good for walking and birdwatching. Further afield you will find the city of Carlisle, the Scottish Borders and the Lake District National Park. A convenient base for exploring many places of interest.
