  • Characterful cottage that’s steeped in history and dates back to 1613
  • Located in a quiet village in the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • Walks from the door perfect for those who wish to bring their dog
Property code: SZ214

Embrace tradition with a stay in one of the area’s oldest properties, a delectable 17th century cottage that features low ceilings, original beams and plenty of historic charm.

Dating back to 1613, this cottage is a wonderful mix of characterful original features with all of the modern comforts you could wish for. Head inside and you're sure to feel instantly at home. Mawbray is a peaceful, rural village, perfect for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle but still be within walking distance of the beautiful Solway Coast, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Walk from the front door to Mawbray Banks Nature Reserve, be sure to keep an eye out for the wildlife (some very rare) and birds who also like to visit this beautiful spot. As well as sand dunes and rare heathland, Mawbray Banks also has a submerged forest which you might be lucky enough to see depending on the tides (always check these before venturing to the coast).

For those interested in history, there's certainly plenty on offer. Those interested in maritime history should head to the harbour towns of Maryport and Whitehaven, or spend a day in the border city of Carlisle where you can learn all about the area's Roman heritage at the fantastic Tullie House Museum. For those who'd prefer to indulge in a bit of retail therapy, head to the Georgian market town of Cockermouth or bustling Keswick for a great selection of outdoor and independent shops.

Thought to be the first house built in Mawbray, this cottage has walls built from cobbles and stones, and amazing original beams. Part of the charm of the cottage is that the ceilings and walls aren't all straight, some of the ceilings and doorways are lower than usual and the stairs up to the first floor are steep. Any tall members of the party will need to watch their head, especially in the bedrooms with their low beams.

Head though the door and you're into the inviting entrance hall. On your left you'll find the fabulous family bathroom, recently renovated but still within keeping of the cottage's period style. As well as the WC, there's a separate shower cubicle and feature free-standing bath. Reinvigorate tired muscles in the shower or indulge in a long soak in the bath, all tastes are catered for here. As a real treat, the owners have thoughfully provided individual start packs of complimentary toiletries. Across the hallway from the bathroom is the kitchen, well-equipped with all the modern conveniences and comforts you'll need for a self-catering holiday. There's a range-style cooked that the chefs in the group are sure to love! In the kitchen you'll also find a fridge/freezer, handy microwave, useful dishwasher - no need to fight over who has to do the washing up here! - and a useful washing machine.

Continue through into the main living room. Your eye will be immediately drawn the to the multi-fuel wood burner, sitting proudly in the cottage's original fireplace - just perfect for cosy evenings in. By one of the windows is the dining table and four chairs, ideal for sociable mealtimes. For entertainment there's a Freeview TV. The cottage is deceptively spacious and a second living room can be found by the front door. It's a bright, peaceful room to escape to with a good book. This living room does contain a double sofa bed for those who'd prefer to sleep on the ground floor if they find the stairs too steep.

Onwards and upwards to the first floor (please be aware that the stairs in the cottage are steep due to the age of the property, there is a bannister on one side of the stairs) and the two unique bedrooms. The doorways into the bedrooms are lower than usual so please be careful to mind your heads as you head inside. The double bedroom has amazing feature beams, alomst reminscent of being on a ship - apt for a cottage so close to the coast! There's a built-in cupboard and chest of drawers for storage, as well as a cute dressing table. The twin room is just as characterful with its own original beams, Again there's a handy wardrobe and chest of drawers for storage.

As well as parking for two cars on the driveway, outside the cottage has a pleasant garden. With lawn areas, pretty apple trees and outdoor seating, it's a lovely spot for al fresco dining. The Solway Coast is renowned for its magnificent sunsets and clear skies, so why not make a hot chococlate and enjoy an evening sitting out under the stars? Guests here will also have access to the owner's garage where you can store bikes, canoes and other outdoor equipments, should wish to explore with pedal - or paddle! - power. One lucky dog is also welcome; a doggy welcome pack including useful dog towels is even provided (these will be kept in the outside cupboard) and there's a tap outside for washing off muddy paws before going inside where your dog will undoubtedly curl up in front of the wood burner.

Cottage is lovely, all equipment needed for us and the dog is readily and tidily available. Met the owners who were friendly and helpful, we had no issues/problems but I am sure they would have done what they could to help if the need arose. Enclosed garden is great for the dog. Comfy beds therefore good sleeps. Overall a great place to stay.
