Right next to the beach at Allonby, with a south-facing aspect and open views across the coastline, Gulls Hatch has all the ingredients for the perfect seaside escape.
This beautifully decorated, terraced, seaside cottage has bucketful’s of character and boasts stunning views of the sea and the Northern Fells in the Lake District National Park. The property is situated opposite the village green in the quiet village of Allonby on the north west coast of Cumbria, once frequented by smugglers operating along the Solway Estuary between Cumbria and Scotland. The narrow cobbled lanes and interesting architecture of this historic Georgian village offer a glimpse to its maritime past. The wooden beams that flow through this property are a reminder of its heritage yet the feel is modern, spacious and relaxing.
Gulls Hatch comfortably sleeps up to four adults in two good-sized bedrooms both located on the first floor. The second floor is home to the hub of the house complete with a large flat screen Smart TV offering complimentary Netflix. Kids will love to play with the table football while the adults relax and enjoy the sea views from the sloped windows. The ground floor features an open plan kitchen and dining room as well as an additional easy seating area and a cosy wood burner. This area is great for preparing a family feast after a day of adventure and offers a touch of flexibility if you want to relax while the kids play upstairs. The property has been very well furnished with guest experience and comfort a priority. Thanks to its south-facing aspect the property boasts plenty of natural daylight and sun on the front of the property for most of the day, and there is a small sitting-out area with garden furniture from which to enjoy this sunshine. A real bonus is you can turn right outside of the front gate and within 100 yards you’ll be on Allonby Beach with a long stretch of sand to explore.
Located between Maryport and Silloth this area has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its long sandy beaches offering great views over the Solway Estuary to the mountains of southern Scotland gives an added dimension to this Cumbrian hotspot. Within a few hundred yards you have a fish and chip shop, a couple of great pubs serving food and local ales, and a famous ice cream shop. For those seeking some more rugged outdoor adventure you’re only a 10 mile drive to the Lake District National Park and 16 miles to your nearest lake, Bassenthwaite. Do not miss a visit to the famous Lakes Distillery offering guided tours and tastings, or the Lake District Wildlife Park with over 100 species of exotic animals making for a fun-filled day out for all ages. The property is also within easy access of the coastal cycle route and Hadrian’s Wall. Beach 100 yards. Shop 350 yards, pub/restaurant 175 yards.
