    We stayed with our 3 labradors. Cottage is in a fantastic location right on the beach front. Nice enclosed gravelled patio area again ideal for the dogs. Cottage was very cosy and nicely equipped, it's a lot bigger than you think from the outside. The owners were very helpful and they contacted us to let us now about a market that was on in the village. There are a couple of pubs in the village both in walking distance and dog friendly as is the cafe.

    Very pleasant well equipped cottage. Standard of equipment, furniture and interior was of a high standard and far superior to most others. Well situated to enjoy everything Allonby has to offer and convenient for dogs. Owner helpful but not intrusive, we would love to visit again.

    A perfect getaway to the stunning Solway Coast. The cottage is tastefully furnished and extremely well equipped. The owners use this as themselves and it shows in the care in which the cottage is presented. Even though the weather outside was stormy we were nice and warm inside thanks to the central heating and modern log burner in the lounge. Situated less than 20 metres from the beach this was an excellent location to take our dogs walking. The cottage is dog friendly and some nice touches included dog towels/bowls and a selection of dog treats awaiting us on arrival. The owners could not have been more helpful and our only disappointment was that the cottage isn't ours. We will most certainly be back later in the year.

    The cottage had everything you need and more! Lots of little touches that made you feel at home and settled from dog tags and treats and a bottle of wine for us hoomans to dog bowls and towels and snuggley throws for us on the colder nights. A beautiful setting just yards from the beach and coastal walks. We were made most welcome at the ship in and that’s saying something when you have 2 Great Danes in tow. Used this as a base to visit Lake District and a lovely place to return each day after our adventures. Would highly recommend.

    We had a brilliant week at Porthole Cottage . Clean, Comfortable and cosy. The location was great for dog walking. The area was quite at New Year but that's what we wanted. We had everything we needed but a lot of the local amenities had closed.

    Porthole Cottage is an absolute gem. The location is perfect, right on the beach, it is spacious and spotlessly clean. It is very well equipped and is super dog friendly providing everything from blankets and bowls to lovely little treats. The cottage is just over the road from the tea rooms and one of the local pubs, although we didn't visit the pub I can highly recommend the tea rooms. Although there isn't a shop in Allonby you can get supermarket deliveries there and Maryport is only a 5 - 10 minute drive away. I can't recommend Porthole cottage highly enough and we are already looking forward to coming back

    I cannot fault Porthole Cottage. Every little thing was thought of down to dog tags in case we lost our furry babies. The place was pristine and well equipped. Great location being so close to the beach, especially for our dogs. Hope to return again next year. Highly recommended.

    We arrived at Porthole Cottage and were straightaway struck by the lovely, quaint cottage and the great decor, not to mention the proximity to the beach and the flat cycle path that runs along the edge - everything was exactly as it had said in the brochure and more! The welcome pack was great with wine, biscuits and treats for the dogs, the information pack was comprehensive and easy to use; we especially liked the 'I'm on holiday at Porthole Cottage' dog tags just in case, a lovely touch. The cottage was clean, tidy and very well decorated and comfortable plus had all the equipment you might need. I loved the woodturner which was easy to use and clean and gave the cottage a lovely ambiance in the evenings. The garden was gravelled and secure with enough space for eating out (it was November so we didn't) and brilliant for the dogs. We had a fantastic week exploring the Lakes and wandering along the beautiful beach, with its views of Scotland, everything we had wanted for a relaxing week away with the dogs. I have no hesitation in recommending Porthole Cottage to anyone, I have already suggested to my friends and family that they visit as they definitely won't be disappointed.

    Had the most peaceful and relaxing holiday at Porthole Cottage. 5 star accommodation with a beach on your doorstep. Very dog friendly which is hard to find. Myself and my dogs were sad to have to go home.
