Location description from manager

The England region

Cumbria is home to the Lake District, also known as the Lakes or Lakeland is world renowned for the beautiful lakes and mountains (or fells). The Lake District is home to the highest mountain in England: Scafell Pike measuring 978m (3210 ft).

The National Park was founded in 1951 to offer protection to the well known beauty spots and landscape that has provided inspiration to generations of artists' writers and musicians.

From a stroll around Buttermere to a climb to the highest peak a holiday in the English lakes provides exercise for the body and relaxation for the mind.

Market towns such as Keswick and Cockermouth give the opportunity to sample the delights of Cumbrian fare many establishments now source their ingredients from local producers.

Whilst areas like Bowness on Windermere and Ambleside are extremely popular other less commercial locations like the Solway Coast and Allonby give you space and quiet with the vast open shingle beaches the majestic beauty of the Solway.

A Cumbrian Cottage holiday booked through Stay Lakeland assures you of quality and value we have a unique selection of accommodations from simple Holiday home caravans to stunning timber lodges plus a range of cottages in and around this beautiful part of the country.

Allonby

Unlike the southern and central Lake District the Western Lake District and Solway Coast area is relatively unknown; yet this region has so much to offer. The roads are comparatively quiet and, if you crave solitude, many of them lead to the quiet sandy beaches and sandy beaches in this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Cumbria has more than 93 miles of coastline; and at Allonby and Silloth you can enjoy dramatic views across to southern Scotland and the Isle of Man.

The Western Lake District holds a number of surprises; and none more so than the wide vista of beach that is Allonby Bay. Upon approaching Allonby along the B5300 the stunning views are blocked by the sand dunes; but eventually upon approaching the whole horseshoe of Allonby Bay opens up before you. This delightful seaside village is located between Maryport and Silloth and antipiflys what a seaside village use to be; with its cobbled streets, wild ponies on the Beach Green and tame ones to ride on the beach. The village is also very popular for windsurfing and is has a reputation for being one of the best in the North West. Allonby also has a wealth of places to eat and drink with a number of bars, restaurants and café's as well as the famous ice cream shop on the sea front.

One of the best ways to experience the beauty of this area is with an ice cream, on a warm summer's evening with the salty scent of the sea in the air and the sun setting over the Scottish mountains from across the bay. These are the very things which holiday memories are made of.

Also located close by is the seaside destination of Silloth, which has a quaintness and genteel aura. The name Silloth us a derivation of "sea-laths" - a site where the monks of Holme Cultram Abbey drained their grain in buildings called "laths". This seaside town was originally planned as a port for Carlisle, today the town has cobbled streets, a small working harbour, a promenade, a choice of shingle of sandy beaches, 1.5 miles promenade, fun fair, open air market, paddling pool, and an 18 hole golf course.

Maryport is a nautical town is less than 20 miles from Keswick in the heart of the Lake District! This seaside town is a well preserved example of Georgian planning and many fine buildings are dotted around the streets and alleys of this small town. The town also hosts the Lake District Coast Aquarium; designed to portray marine and fresh water fish in their natural surroundings, The Senhouse Roman Muesum, and the Wave Centre; by the harbour a new attraction telling the story of Maryport’s development from the 18th Century to the present day, through a number of different exhibits. The town also hosts an annual Blues Festival in late-July.
