Sleeping groups of up to four people, this property has been built from brick yet inside, has been decorated and furnished to exceedingly modern standards. It is conveniently located just next door to a pub, which also happens to belong to the owner so, although there is parking for up to two cars, there will be many evenings where you just won't need them! Central heating throughout warms the cottage in the colder months and there is a feature fireplace in the living room. If you prefer to eat in, the kitchen is spacious and well equipped.
Silloth's location on the shores of the Solway Firth, facing the hills of the Southern Galloway and neatly bordered by the Lake District Fells, has attracted visitors for years. Its reputation for fabulous sunsets and sea views inspired the artist, Turner, to capture its atmosphere on canvas. The town itself was built as a railhead and a port in the 1850s and shipped in Irish Granite to build Christ Church, which is open to visitors. The streets are wide, stylish and lined with trees. Coupled with a beautiful promenade, this part of Cumbria could almost be a small French town. There is an 18-hole golf course, which was the 'home' course for Miss Cecillia Leitch, the most celebrated woman golfer of the 19th Century. In addition, there are many attractions around Silloth, such as Grune Point, a sandy, raised shingle beach approximately one mile long and supporting a community of specialist vegetation, including sea sandwort, sea-holly and sand couch-grass.
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.
