Checking for availability


Situated in the centre of Allonby that nestles in a sandy bay on the unspoilt Solway Coast. Our beautifully converted 17thC barn cottages are hidden away in a tranquil courtyard. All have original features retained, such as, ancient oak beams and sandstone/cobbled walls.

We offer a total of seven cottages, two are all ground-floor level, and six are dog friendly. There is ample off-road parking.
We are open all year round and short breaks - Friday for 3 nights and Monday for 4 nights are available.

This is an ideal base for touring the Lake District as well as the beautiful Cumbrian coastline.
