“Great cottage. Fabulous views.”
Reviewed 18 May 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We stayed here for a week in march. If only the weather was as good as the accommodation. Great cottage in a nice little village. Handy location to explore Cumbria and lake district.

“Cosy cottage on the beach”
Reviewed 17 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We have just returned from a week at Captain's cottage. This is a beautiful cottage on the beach at Allonby which is a quiet old fashioned victorian resort. The views across the Solway towards Scotland are stunning. There are beautiful coastal walks straight from the door. The village has an excellent fish and chip shop, two pubs, well stocked village shop (especially the sweets!). The cottage itself is cosy with a lovely nautical theme. It is very roomy with the comfiest beds ever. We didn't want to come home!

A beautiful, relaxing stay right beside the beach. The house is beautiful, warm and welcoming ... a true home from home.
