This modern home is the perfect setting for families and friends who want to escape the hectic pace of everyday life and enjoy quality time together in this near coast location.

Sleek and stylish throughout, this modern home just outside the pretty coastal town of Millom sleeps six people over three bedrooms and welcomes two canine companions. It’s the perfect accommodation option for families or groups of friends who want to escape the hectic pace of everyday life and enjoy some quality time with their loved ones on the idyllic west coast of Cumbria. Spend your days strolling along Silecroft Beach or hiking at Black Coombe, and your evenings BBQ-ing in the garden or warming your toes by the wood burner in the lounge.

Step inside and take a moment to make yourself at home in the stylish lounge before heading through to the kitchen to cook up a feast for your nearest and dearest. Alternatively, head out to the deck and fire up the custom-built BBQ for an al fresco dinner. Sit back and enjoy the stunning views towards Black Coombe while you eat. After dinner, head indoors to the lounge to relax by the wood burner. Alternatively, lose yourself in a good book in the second lounge, or get the whole gang together for movie night in the snug upstairs. At the end of the day, you’ll find three lovely bedrooms to retire to.

Enjoy a stroll at the beautiful Silecroft Beach (1.5 miles). This gently-sloping sand and shingle beach stretches for 3 miles and sits against the backdrop of the majestic Black Combe fell. Alternatively, head into the pretty town of Millom (3.5 miles), which sits on the Duddon Estuary. It’s a fabulous place to spend a few happy hours browsing the shops and checking out the local cafes and pubs. Being on the coast, it’s also a great place to sample the local fish and chips.

Croft view is a beautiful property, very spacious, well equipped and furnished with lovely views of Black Combe. Silecroft is stunning (especially when the sun is out) but it's not your typical seaside place - there is nothing there, no shops, no ice cream (except on the odd occasion when a van turns up). There is a large car park and miles of firmRead more sand to walk & play on. There is a Tesco in Millom for shopping. We had a fantastic week. Hide

The Lake District National Park is situated in the north west of England in the county of Cumbria. It is famously home to England’s tallest peak, largest lake, deepest lake and some of the most beautiful views in the British Isles. It has been a major draw for holidaymakers for over 200 years and its popularity shows no signs that this will diminish anytime soon. Adding to the spectacle, there are long-distance walking trails, endless history and culture to appreciate, as well as an unbeatable array of outdoor activities to try in some exceptionally eye-catching locations.

Mountains, lakes, rocky rivers, waterfalls, and valleys lined by stone walls characterise the Lake District National Park. Add to this vision slate-roofed villages, winding country roads, arctic alpine and wildflower meadows, and beautiful birds such as skylarks, curlews, meadow pipits, and lapwings, which all provide the perfect backdrop for a holiday. The poet, William Wordsworth, who lived in Grasmere, wrote a guidebook of the area in 1810, and very little has changed in the region to tie it into the modern world. The centre of the Lake District is dominated by its craggy mountains such as Scafell Pike and its exceptional lakes like Windermere, Ullswater, Derwentwater, Coniston Water and so many more.

Each of the Lake District’s towns has a village sensibility, yet all of them offer handy amenities, cultural attractions and some of the North West’s best places to eat and drink. Top visitor attractions include The World of Beatrix Potter, Sizergh Castle, Hill Top, Go Ape Grizedale, Grizedale Forest, Fellini and Zefferelli’s Cinema/Restaurants, the Bluebird Mk II, Ravenglass Roman Bathouse alongside a world of outdoor sporting and activity providers. Natural landmarks include Aira Force, Tarn Hows, Scaffell Pike, Castlerigg Stone Circle, The Old Man of Coniston, Helvellyn and Skiddaw. Pull on your walking boots and traverse the long-distance walking trails of the Lakes like Wainwright’s Coast to Coast, and the Tour of the Lake District.

As you get to know the region better, you will find evidence of prehistoric and ancient man in the Lake District, as there are standing stones, circles, and rows to find, as well as one of the largest standing Roman buildings in the UK. Visit Ravenglass, one of the UK’s oldest settlements and the only coastal village in the Lake District; it has beautiful waterside views of the Munros of Southern Scotland. Remnants of the region’s industrial activity can be traced in the form of bobbin mills, gunpowder mills, and mines. The Lakes also have some famous literary and art associations, including Beatrix Potter, John Ruskin, Arthur Ransome, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, William Wordsworth, JMW Turner, John Constable, LS Lowry and Percy Kelly.

It could take you five lifetimes to visit each of the places mentioned here; a good way to see more of the Lake District National Park is stay at one of our self-catering holiday cottages. Our range of holiday properties in the Lake District and Cumbria gives you the perfect place to stay in the north west countryside or on the coast.
