The area around Silloth-on-solway is a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the bustling seaside ports of Whitehaven and Maryport are popular with tourists seeking a seaside holiday. St Bees, just south of Whitehaven marks the starting point of the Wainwright Coast to Coast walk and has a sand and pebble beach which overlooks some of the most dramatic sandstone cliffs which soar over 300 feet high. Dogs are also allowed on the beach which is a real bonus.
And of course you can enjoy your holiday cottage on the Cumbrian coast at any time of the year; what could be better than a bracing autumn walk on the beach with the dog before returning to your cosy cottage for a pot of tea and hot buttered toast!
