    Lovely clean cottage. Not 5 star but then that is reflected in the cost. Great value for money and loved the little touches that made it feel like a home from home. Really friendly and approachable owners and nothing was too much trouble. Ps all the locals we friendly as well

    Loved this cottage - made to feel really welcome by Nikki and could not ask for more. Every comfort catered for - 2 big bedrooms and large bathroom. Nothing too much trouble - fab that the cottage has an enclosed garden with BBQ which we made the most of and sat by the chimnea amongst candles and lanterns with our throws on. Lovely lounge and separate kitchen/diner which had everything you needed home from home. The beach goes on for miles and our dog loved his morning and evening walks along it. Easy to get to Cockermouth and Keswick but great to escape to this peaceful village. We will be back to this gorgeous cottage soon x

    What a great location in an amazingly friendly village. A big thanks to Nicky for tips about secret locations in the lakes!

    Well where do I begin we went for a well earned break fir 7 nights however came home after 2 nights The cottage was dirty smelt of damp and spilt milk and the staircase was dangerous The mattress on the double bed was of poor quality and the pillows were soiled I was very disappointed and wouldn’t recommend it



    out of 10

    Delightful little cottage. Unfortunately due to the weather being dreadful we couldn't use the little back garden which had a lovely stove and fairy lights. The owners were very helpful helping us with our luggage and even doing a clothes wash for us. Staircase is very steep so not really suitable for very elderly.

    We enjoyed our holiday in Allonby. There was 4 adults and 2 dogs, upstairs was very spacious, great rooms with comfy beds and plenty storage. The bathroom was big with a fantastic tub and shower. However downstairs was slightly more cramped for us all but we managed, probably suit only 2 people rather than 4. The garden was quite wild so sitting out wasn't fun due to wasps and slugs, would be nicer trimmed back. Only main issue we found was in the kitchen, although it's well equipped it was very difficult to cook and eat in there, the smoke alarm kept going off when you tried to cook and there was a really off putting smell from the wall by the fridge, it was so bad we spent our entire time there with the windows wide open to minimize it, so eating out was better. Not having a washing machine was also a nuisance especially with bad weather and wet dogs, there also was no mop to keep floor clean and dry. The owners were friendly. Allonby it's self is lovely.

    This is a small, characterful cottage in an unusual village. The owners were great, very friendly and helpful. The cottage had everything we needed for our stay, in all rooms. Very clean, good beds and welcoming. Bonus was the beautiful courtyard garden.

    Beachcomber is a pleasant little cottage, with very considerate owners. It is clear they have made an effort to make the cottage cosy and welcoming and it is a comfortable cottage for two, or perhaps a small family, but would probably be cramped for four. The bed was comfortable and there is a large bathroom. The small sitting room leads onto a pretty, but cramped, garden. Unfortunately, the kitchen cupboards and drawers have a fusty, damp smell, which I found off-putting. The cutlery and crockery is quite old, but the kitchen is otherwise well provisioned. We did have to open the windows and close the kitchen door whilst cooking to avoid setting off the fire alarms. The area of Allonby itself seemed a bit desolate and uninspiring. We were looking forward to walking the coastal route - but this is a cycle route beside the road with views of weeds, rather than the coast. The Lake District is, however, stunning, and Ullswater is only an hour's drive from the cottage. The Pooley Bridge area was lovely - and Buttermere (only half an hour away) was a delight. We were also able to view nesting Osprey's at nearby Bassenthwaite. If returning to the area, I would opt to be closer to the lakes, rather than the coast.

    A brilliant, cosy cottage set in a really quiet location. The owners are friendly helpful when needed. A highly recommended place to stay and use as a base for further exploring. I will definitely, hopefully book here again. Thankyou Stuart n Nikki.

    A lovely, cosy cottage, very near various amenities.



    out of 10

    Nikki & Stu were lovely, welcoming hosts and the cottage was warm, cosy and comfortable. The wifi was surprisingly very reliable (we often find it is a bit patchy in holiday cottages, but not here!) The bed was very comfy, there was plenty of hot water and a lovely big bathroom. The small kitchen was nicely equipped (I particularly enjoyed the Indian Tree pattern crockery thanks) - I did struggle a bit with the halogen hob, but with a bit more practice I would have got the hang of it. The pretty little garden was filled with bird life and even had a chiminea for anyone wanting to sit outside. Allonby itself is quiet, with a great beach perfect for dog walkers, and with the best fish & chips I've tasted in years just yards from the cottage's front door. Plenty of Roman history within easy reach, great walks from the front door, and The Lakes just a short drive away. Thanks for a perfect stay!
