    Lovely cottage situated outside st bees about 3miles away nice local restaurant short walk down the road



    out of 10

    The cottage was very cosy in a quaint village with pleasant walks, countryside and coastal and was never far away from main tourist areas. However it is only a stones throw away from Sellafield nuclear power plant.

    We liked the cottage very much. It was very well equiped and comfortable. We booked very last minute after minimal research, so with hind-sight, we would have booked a place with a fire/stove, in early January. We were told it was near St Bees, when actually it is next to Sellafield, which might bother some people. We took our 2 small dogs, and if there is a down-side to the cottage, it is that the living space is very small. [The bedroom is ample]. With 2 dog beds in the living room there wasn't much room to move about! The space in the cottage has been very cleverly used, so there isn't a solution to this! The directions to find the place would have been very annoying if we had followed them from Kirkby Stephen. If you are coming from the north or north-east, it is surely better to follow the A66 to Cockermouth, and then go south down the west coast. Sorry not to fill in all the rest, but I can't do the photo thing and as a Welcome Cottage owner myself , I find it difficult to score things out of 10! I find I can't submit without an overall score. Please attach no significance to this number as it depends on what you think of as 'excellent', and for whom.

    Disappointed no secure garden area for the dogs Did find it to be a long drive to the actual Lake District
