We found the cottage to be lovely and homely. There was a beautiful view and it was situated in a great location. The property was also child friendly with a travel cot, high chair and DVDs available. We would definitely recommend 2 West View to anyone who would like to have a quiet and relaxing countryside holiday.

10 out of 10! A fantastic holiday cottage in a beautiful location. It was within walking distance of Grange over sands and Cartmel and had good local shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, etc. Easy access to the Lake District and Yorkshire dales.

The cottage was fantastic. The village was quiet and peaceful, the views were stunning and everything was near to hand so didn't have to drive too far to find something to do. Would definitely recommend this for families and couples of all ages, can't wait to go back.

The cottage was so close to beautiful areas and we did not have to go far. It felt like going home every evening and everywhere we went the people were friendly. We did not want to come home.

We had a wonderful holiday in the Lake District. The cottage was comfortable, clean and well stocked with towels, cutlery and crockery. The kitchen was of a particularly high standard and the views from the dining room were truly spectacular. The owner contacted us before our visit and gave us a number of contact numbers and details which we could use if we had any problems. We had no reason to use these numbers but it was re-assuring to know that help was at hand if we needed it. I would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage.

Really good for a car free holiday, within cycling distance of the train station, secure bike storage. Really well equipped cottage, nothing lacking. Very well presented too, the photos on the website don't do it justice.

A lovely cottage, full of light and lovely views from the kitchen table.

The views from the property were lovely and it was an ideal location from which to explore the surrounding area.

Great location for exploring the Southern Lakes. House has been finished to a very high standard. The kitchen is well equipped and has lovely views over the surrounding countryside through the large patio doors. Sitting area is comfortable and the wood burner was a treat. Beds are very comfortable providing a great nights sleep after a days exploring.

The cottage was recently renovated to a high standard, it had everything you could possibly need, whilst retaining the character of the property.

A lovely house, well-equipped and beautifully presented. The bedrooms are lovely and the twin-bedded loft conversion particularly charming. Havins a separate lounge was a bonus and the beautifully extended kitchen/diner with its views over the countryside is a delightful living space, Parking outside was never a problem, though Allithwaite's lack of footpaths and plenty of throug traffic makes exploring on foot a little alarming. No real shop so need to go to Grange for provisions, But a great base to explore the southern lake lands and the Cartmel and Furness peninsulas, Pheasant Innn deserves its reputation for good food,

Exceedingly nice cottage style terrace only 2 miles from Cartmel, very well equipped with everything you could need. Can't fault the place, will return with friends in the future.

The cottage was beautiful, well cared for and very comfy. We could not have asked for anything more.

Stayed here with our family; a 7 and 5 year old and a dog. The children loved the attic room, and we loved the kitchen (which had everything we needed) with the gorgeous views across the fields over breakfast, and the utility room was fab for use after walks, drying and storing shoes etc. We found Allithwaite not great for dog walks, as very few public open spaces to let the dog off the lead, found a nice park along the railway line on the way into Grange however. The beds were comfortable, linen very clean and fresh, bathrooms nicely laid out. We always drove into the Lakes to get a decent walk, Orrest Head in Windermere perfect for the children, and Muncaster castle great for taking the dog and entertaining the children. We had such a bad week weather wise, storm weather warnings, hail, snow and rain, but we don't feel like we missed out in any way as we found plenty to do in the Lakes and nearby to have a great time. Our only personal downside was that we left ALL the children's Easter eggs hidden on top of a wardrobe on Easter Saturday before actually giving them to them! Ooooops! Will triple check before leaving a rental next time!

Stayed for a week with family and pet dog, I was very impressed with this home from home. It had everything you could need with the owner taking a lot of trouble with attention to detail. Amazing kitchen with fantastic view, comfy beds and lovely master bedroom with en-suite and log burner in the lounge. Having wifi was the icing on the cake, I could happily move in! Will definitely use this property again when visiting the area.

Beautiful cottage felt like home from home. Very well equipped, and super clean. The views from the back of the cottage are superb. Good location for surrounding attractions. Would definitely revisit.
January 2014
This cottage is great. We stayed with our 3 children and there was everything we needed. The cottage itself is really clean and modern inside but in character with the age of the building. Both Cartmel and Grange are nearby and easy to get to. You will need a car.
