The accommodation was excellent for us. The games room was a real joy for the evenings and kept the whole family entertained. The bed in the main bedroom was probably the comfiest I have ever slept in. None of the kids had a bad word to say about their rooms. Overall an excellent holiday let and I will certainly go back.

The owner was courteous and friendly without being intrusive. The property is ideally located close to amenities and the beach. It is also very family friendly particularly with the well provisioned games rooms equipped to cater for both teenagers and youngsters.

The cottage was absolutely fabulous and well equipped with everything you could wish for. The views were amazing and the beach was ideal for walking. The cottage was ideally situated for visiting the surrounding area. The owner was extremely helpful before we arrived and upon arrival. Our party ranged from 6 months to over 60 and there was something for everyone in this cottage. The games room was brilliant for all age groups.

The booking was made at very short notice and the owner met us as we arrived and made us feel very welcome. The house was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. A short walk to the beach was ideal for the dogs.

Woodlands is a wonderful Victorian home situated across the road from the beach. We had such a wonderful stay; walking along the beach with our dogs, playing pool and darts in the games room with our friends and cooking up a storm in the kitchen that was served in the traditional dinning room. Fabulous! Highly recommend Woodlands for the 'get away' house.

Loved the feel and homeliness of the house as well as the fact that it was a historical listed building. Lovely period features, emphasised by the owners good eye for furnishings and items displayed in the rooms, like living in a costume drama! The reception rooms and kitchen were cosy, not over large so even though there was only 2 of us, we did not rattle around in the house. The first floor landing window alcove that looks out to sea was a lovely novelty. There was good, easy to use laundry machines and the couple of times we put the central heating on for an hour in the evening the place warmed up so quickly I think the house would be cosy in colder weather.

Set in a beautiful place straight opposite the beach. The house is superb and has everything you need and more. We had 4 kids with us and they never got bored! Plenty of room for two families, we had a fantastic time and can't wait to go back.

Great location near the beach and a comfortable house to live in. Everyone enjoyed their stay and we liked Allonby and Maryport very much. The court yard was small but sheltered because it was very windy it would have been nice to look out on to the beach. Overall a good break and I would recommend to any family.

Stayed here with 9 family members in August and the house was delightful. The games rooms a blessing for all four of the children (ages ranging from 4-16), and we found all the facilities were fab. We have stayed in Allonby for the last few years and this house really added to the wonderful holiday experience. Thank you so much for the memories.

The house made it very easy to access all areas in the Lake District and Scotland. Perfect location.
Mrs Gamble

The house was better than a home from home, there were things to do for everyone if you wanted to stay in and there was plenty of room for 7 of us. The location is good for North Lake District and Scotland. The owner was very friendly and helpful, we will definitely go back to the house again.

We had a great time; could not have asked for a better owner or property, thank you.
