COTTAGE WITH GARDEN AND WOODBURNER SET ON THE SOLWAY COAST

The spacious detached chocolate box property with large garden is perfect for large family gatherings. Situated in the centre of the quaint village of Glasson, close to the Solway.

Located within the Solway Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this traditional country cottage is perfect for a special reunion with family and friends. Tucked away in the peaceful hamlet of Glasson, you have the opportunity to explore the coastline, discover the northern areas of the Lake District National Park and even hop over the border into Scotland. When you return home of an evening and don’t feel like cooking, there’s a local pub within a few hundred metres where you can enjoy good food whilst relaxing and enjoying the company of loved ones.

Being a traditional cottage, there are lots of original features that add charm and character throughout, but light tones and contemporary fixtures and fittings make it comfortable for a modern visitor. After discarding coats and boots, head into the lounge and sink into a sofa in front of the roaring wood burner. From here, head into the well-equipped kitchen before taking your home-cooked food through to the dining room. Completing the accommodation are five bedrooms, a bathroom and a shower room, so there’s plenty of space for everyone to spread out and relax. Outside, there are enclosed gardens to the front and rear, which provide somewhere to stretch your legs or soak up the tranquillity.

Walkers and cyclists alike will enjoy this area with many routes to choose from including the Cumbrian Cycleway which passes through Glasson, and the Hadrian’s Wall path. If you’re near the Upper Solway Flats and Marshes, look out for seals, dolphins and porpoises that have been sighted offshore. Cumbria’s county town, Carlisle, is 11.5 miles away and has a range of shops, eateries and amenities for you to enjoy. Heading further afield into the Lake District, you can enjoy walks around the most northerly lake: Bassenthwaite (24 miles).

An excellent property and very well equipped with everything that we needed. With 5 bedrooms - 4 single and 3 double beds - and 2 bathrooms it is more than adequate for a large party. This was our third visit and we will be back.

Cottage was perfect for what we wished (family celebration) rooms were large and well equipped. Cottage was very homely and we had a great time during our stay. Enjoyed the walk to the coast and also spent sometime in a local pub for food. Both were recommended by the owner who was excellent to deal with and very helpful.

This was our second visit which I guess tells you that we were happy with it first time around. Set in a rural community about 20 minutes walk from the Solway Firth it is an ideal base to explore the area. The house is well equipped with everything that we needed, the lounge and beds (3 double, 4 single) were comfortable. We loved it and are likelyRead more to be back again next year!! Hide

Nice old cottage with good facilities. Village pub closed now, nearest a half hour walk away. Owners very hospitable. A little far from the lakes for easy access. WiFi good but limited range. No smart TV. 4G/data on EE non existent. Great private front lawn and chairs for outside socialising.

Super cottage housed the 7 of us plus doggo so comfortably. Very clean and contains all you need. Lovely location to enjoy the Solway area and beyond. Owners extremely helpful and accessible if needed but leave you to enjoy your stay. Maybe a touch pricey but would definitely recommend.

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. Our self-catering cottages in the Lake District offer lovely holiday accommodation to suit all your needs, from cottages to rent for a romantic getaway to larger properties for the whole family – we even have dog-friendly holiday homes across the Lake District too. Take a look at our full collection of self-catering cottages and begin to plan your holiday.
