Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Cove Cottage is a quiet and secluded 18th century terraced cottage, located just a minute's walk from the village green and the Allonby beach. Located in a quiet corner of a cobbled courtyard, Cove Cottage was converted from 250-year old farm buildings during the 1960's.
This spacious Allonby cottage is warm and comfortable, with a sitting room adjoining a dining room, a small well-equipped kitchen, and three bedrooms (one of which contains a romantic four-poster). This Allonby cottage is full of period charm, and makes a perfect base to enjoy the wonderful walking and touring opportunities in this beautiful and intriguing area. Allonby offers breathtaking sea views and the distant Galloway hills of southern Scotland can be seen in the distance.
Cove Cottage is a mere short stroll away from five miles of safe beach, two pubs (including The Ship Inn where Charles Dickens once stayed), three cafes, fish and chip takeaway, general store and off licence, swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi. Allonby's famous sunsets across the bay to the Scottish Mountains can be seen every night – weather pending!
