    “Great location with 10 minute walk to the beach and close to 2 great hotels which serve good food and drinks.”

    The property is a good size with a great enclosed garden for dogs. Good size kitchen with full size fridge freezer. Would have been better to have a dishwasher rather than washing machine. I felt it was more Air B&B rather than what I’ve usually experienced from other Sykes properties. Whilst there was nothing wrong as such it felt like staying in someone else’s house rather than a holiday home.

    The property is a good size with a great enclosed garden for dogs. Good size kitchen with full size fridge freezer. Would have been better to have a dishwasher rather than washing machine. I felt it was more Air B&B rather than what I’ve usually experienced from other Sykes properties. Whilst there was nothing wrong as such it felt like staying in someone else’s house rather than a holiday home. A mismatch of crockery and cutlery felt like they’d been sort from a charity shop and locked cupboards which the owners must keep their personal things in. I get that but hence me saying more Air B&B. Very firm mattress and pillows which I didn’t find comfortable but would be perfect for some. Found both sofas uncomfortable. Whilst this property wasn’t for me I wouldn’t put anyone off staying here because the things I didn’t like were personal preference.

The property

Resting in the coastal village of St Bees, in Cumbria, is this delightful end-of-terrace cottage. Inside, the property provides a warm and welcoming base for friends and families seeking an escape to the coast of Cumbria. Look forward to relaxing and unwinding in the comfort of your own open-plan living space, curled up and catching up with your favourite shows. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you could need to rustle up some delicious home-cooked meals, and gather at the dining table for a family gathering over a sparkling glass of champagne. The first-floor has three well-presented bedrooms, consisting of one double and two singles, where you can get some much needed rest for the days ahead, with plenty of furniture for storage purposes. The family bathroom has an elegant bath and shower over, so you can decide how best to prepare for your day. Step out to the enclosed patio area to the rear, with plenty of furniture to sit out in the evening sun with a refreshing drink and even to enjoy some alfresco dining. Nestled in the coastal village of St Bees, you are well-placed for accessing a number of countryside sites, with plenty of pathways for some walking and cycling opportunities, particularly within the beautiful Lake District National Park. Make sure to visit the Lakes biggest and best sites while you're in the area, such as the historic market towns Cockermouth and Keswick to name a few. Popular attractions include Muncaster Castle and Wordsworth House, as well as waters including Crummock Water, Loweswater and Ennerdale all ideal for lakeside walks. Try your best with the 182-mile Coast to Coast walk and see how far you can get before tiring! Visit the neighbouring coastal town of Whitehaven for its large selection of traditional eateries if you don't fancy cooking one evening. Whitehaven also boasts a lovely golf course, and a selection of shops and supermarkets for those shopping sprees or picking up any last-minute essentials. Rowan Cottage is an excellent base for touring the very best of Cumbria.

About the location

ST BEES

Whitehaven 5 miles.

St. Bees is an historic seaside village on the west coast of Cumbria with a Norman priory and Elizabethan public school, as well as a shop, post office and old traditional pubs. It's an ideal base for exploring the western Lake District and Cumbrian coast, and is the start of the famous Wainwright coast to coast walk. St. Bees Head is the only major sea cliff between Wales and Scotland and is the only Heritage coastline in Cumbria. There is a fine beach and many wonderful walks are available along the clifftops, which are also home to one of England’s most important seabird colonies. There is also a nine-hole golf course in the village. Nearby Whitehaven, an elegant Georgian port, and the spectacular western Lakes, are more than worthy of a visit. Muncaster Castle is 8 miles away, as is the Eskdale and Ravenglass miniature railway. Cockermouth, the birth place of Wordsworth, and Keswick on Derwentwater are also within easy driving distance.
