Spend a day exploring the stunning southern coast of Cumbria, with its wide horizons and fresh coastal air: it's the perfect place to truly unwind.
There are two living rooms to choose from here. The first living room feels very inviting and wonderfully cosy thanks to its wood burner, perfect for relaxing evenings in in front of the fire, and there's a TV for entertainment. The second sitting room has a gas fire; bright and airy, it's a lovely room to escape to with a good book.

Please note that the kitchen is small for groups of 20. The separate dining room has tables and chairs for up to 20 meaning there's plenty of space for sociable dining.
