Shop 1 mile, pub 0.1 miles - (unfortunately The Ship Inn pub is currently closed with the intention of re-opening soon). Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination. Town: The hamlet of Sandside is situated on the estuary of the River Kent, within the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, just outside of the market town of Milnthorpe. With beautiful walks from Sandside, the hamlet has a pub, which is believed to date back to 1671, along with the Kingfisher Restaurant. Close by is Milnthorpe, which was once an important medieval market town, where today you will find narrow lanes and historic buildings, along with a selection of shops and pubs.More

Just returned from four nights at this gem of a cottage. Beautifully kitted out and extremely clean. Lovely welcoming touches. Had some fantastic days out locally and further afield in Lakes which are in easy reach. Would definitely visit again! Highly recommended!
