- North Lodge Cottage 8, is a fantastic place to stay, with great hosts and a friendly atmosphere. The Cottage is part of the Lodge and is a really imposing building in Allonby with amazing, undisturbed views of the beach and coastline. Parking is vast and very private as is access to the cottage. The coastal location is excellent and provides quick and easy access to the lakes, which we went to each day, for long walks with our dog. We also explored the coastline and were able to walk up and down the beach outside the house for at least a mile in each direction.
Inside, the cottage was immaculate, both in furnishings and cleanliness. the Cottage has obviously be subject to a recent refurbishment which has been extremely well and sympathetically done.
The Kitchen is perfect for holidays and upon arrival we found the hosts had provided us with bread, milk, eggs, butter, tea, coffee and also a fruit bowl (apple and oranges), and flowers, which is not the norm.
The lounge is well proportioned and has 2 very comfortable sofas, enough for 3 and 4 people respectively, large flat-screen TV and a slide out dining table.
The bedroom, not only had loads of storage, but was also nicely finished with an extremely comfortable bed. Views from the lounge and bedroom were simply stunning, especially the evening sunsets.
The bathroom is recently modernised with brand new fittings and everything worked perfectly, excellent water pressure in the whole of the house. The central heating was required in the evening to take the edge off and was both very simple to use and very quick to warm up the rooms.
The North Lodge cottage 8 is excellent value and a real gem, that we would highly recommend other holidaymakers visit, as we truly think this is one of those rare finds that visitors will return to again and again. We certainly will be returning, and I suspect it won't be long before it's booked solidly all year round.
Thanks for a great break, we really needed it!!
