Description

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the tidal salt marshes, The Grey House faces the sweeping scenery of the Scottish coast and is cradled in the breath-taking charm of Silloth Bay. The property is surrounded on a wider scale by the delights of the English Lake District, where marshes and rolling hills stretch onto the horizon, presenting seemingly limitless opportunities for family walks bird watching, touring and hikes, and with access also to the beauty of Southern Scotland.

The Grey House Annexe is an ideal location for your Summer or Winter Holiday and is perfect for a comfortable Short Break or as a base for visiting friends.

The Grey House Annexe is an ideal location for your Summer or Winter Holiday and is perfect for a comfortable Short Break or as a base for visiting friends.

The Grey House Annexe is a secluded and deceptively spacious one bedroom fully self contained annexe to the rear of the owners' sea front home; it has its own entrance to the property and is fully fenced and private. It is situated in the Victorian resort of Silloth – on – Solway located on the West Cumbrian Coastline. Literally a minutes' walk from the delightful promenade which looks over the Solway Firth. The sunsets here are wonderful, claim a bench and sit and watch the sun go down. Walk to Grune Point on the marshes and enjoy the scenery or find a quiet space to watch the amazing bird life we have on the Solway coast.

Silloth is a quiet seaside town which has been here since the late 19th century and is little changed; it has a wonderful and unspoiled green which runs the length of the town. Silloth suits those looking for a quieter holiday, we have none of the bustle of busy seaside resorts and you can find peace and quiet all year round, whatever the weather!

The gas centrally heated & double glazed accommodation, which is newly carpeted for 2016, comprises one double bedroom, decorated in pretty Laura Ashley wallpaper and with matching curtains, it has a super-king Sealy bed with good quality bedding, feather duvet and both feather and non-feather pillows. It has lovely honey pine furnishings, large 3 door wardrobe, chest of drawers and dressing table and matching bed side cabinets. Windows to two sides with views over the garden. A hallway with hanging space, spacious sitting room with comfortable three piece suite and large flat screen television with all sky channels, including movies and sport for those quieter evenings a DVD player and collection of DVD's, and books. This is a warm airy and comfortable room with a cosy electric fire and a view of the woods. Glass double doors to dining room with table and 4 chairs in case you are coming to see friends, sideboard with lots of information on things to do locally, games, tennis rackets etc, fully fitted kitchen with new electric cooker, shower room with double walk in electric shower with seat and handrail and separate toilet. It has a small private and fully fenced secure garden with furniture, on road parking by the annexe entrance and there is easy access to the local shops, eateries, golf club and some lovely coffee shops. One dog is welcome and this is a wonderful place for walks - they even get their own welcome box. The house is adjacent to an old pine wood and the annexe has lots of garden birds and even the occasional resident hedgehog.

The annexe is deceptively large and is decorated to a high standard. It has comfortable furnishings to allow you to unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet, it is an ideal hideaway. We provide all bed-linen, towels, tea towels, beach towels and a welcome tray for your arrival cup of tea. We are about 45 minutes from Keswick and Southern Scotland so you can have the beauty of the English Lake District without the crowds, there are lots of things to do locally and Silloth has many festivals during the summer.

Fully equipped with everything you need the accommodation includes full gas central heating, towels, bedding, Wi-Fi, Flat Screen TV with Sky , DVD and a collection of DVD's, books and games.

The England region

Cumbria is a predominantly rural county which is considered one of the most beautiful regions of the United Kingdom and includes the whole of the Lake District, the Eden Valley, the North Pennines, the Furness Peninsula, and part of the Yorkshire Dales.
Silloth is situated in Western Lakeland which is a land of vivid and exciting contrasts, lying between the mountains and the sea. The Cumbrian coastal towns are all within minutes of complete peace and tranquility.
There are four main valleys, each with their own distinct character, leading from the coast into the heart of the Lake District: Ennerdale, Eskdale, Wasdale and Dunnerdale. Wasdale is the home of England's highest mountain Scafell Pike (3206 ft) and the deepest lake – Wastwater which is situated 44 miles south of Silloth
Silloth is a town with a population of around 3000, nestling on the shores of the Solway Firth, facing the hills of Southern Galloway and backed by the Lake District Fells. Silloth is noted for its invigorating but mild climate, its leisurely peaceful atmosphere and perhaps, most of all, its glorious sea views and wonderful sunsets over the water. These are considered fine enough to be recorded for posterity by Turner, the famous landscape artist. The town centre is made particularly attractive by thirty six acres of grassy, open space, known simply as 'The Green'.
The town was inspired by Carlisle businessmen as a railhead and port in the 1850’s. The Railway Company helped to develop the town and The Grey House is built on land originally owned by the railway and has been here since 1906.
The town remains unspoiled and has wide elegant tree lined streets, spacious sea front green and magnificent promenade stretching towards Skinburness which is an excellent walk.
Thousands of servicemen came to know it in World War II through the building nearby of a major aerodrome which now holds industrial firms and an impressive weekly market and car boot sale.

Silloth

There are lots of events through the year both locally and wider afield.

A useful website to visit is www.visitcumbria.com or www.golakes.co.uk
Information on things to do is available in the annexe but many of our guests take the opportunity to relax and re-charge their batteries with walks on the promenade and time to watch the sun go down over Criffel Mountain in Scotland.

“Fabulous place”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2016

Booked this at short notice and Lorna was very flexible and welcoming. Superbly kitted out, spotless, comfortable and private with excellent wi-fi and SKY TV in a superb location virtually on the seafront at the charming resort of Silloth.

Thank you so much for your kind words, we are delighted you enjoyed your break and it was lovely to meet you.

“Warm and Cozy Annex in a Pretty Little Town”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2016

Just returned from a 2 night stay in the Annex. Visited with my husband and Black lab, the annex is a perfect place to stay, it has everything you want and more, like previous reviews it's the little touches that make it special. Lorna greeted me to show me around, she had left milk, tea, coffee and biscuits. Although we had taken our own dog accessories, Lorna had a box full of dog goodies if required. The annex is also in a perfect spot, quiet but only minutes walk from the town centre, park etc and seconds from the prom. The weather wasn't kind to us, but we enjoyed our stay anyway. A must visit is the Fairydust Cafe in town!! I have never ever been to a more friendly cafe and they LOVE dogs, they even offered a crocheted blanket for Bodie to lie on. We will most definitely return one day. Thank you

Thank you so much, we are delighted you enjoyed yourselves and also massive thanks for my retirement gift, I will enjoy it. We would love to welcome you again.

“Excellent”

Reviewed 28 Jul 2016

My wife and myself couldn't have been happier with all aspects of our holiday. The accommodation was excellent as was the town and location to north lakes and many other great spots. Lorna and Martin were excellent hosts, only appearing if we needed them. We have a English Bull Terrier, Arnie who was made really welcome by them, which made our stay even more special. Thanks Lorna and Martin, we'll see you again, hopefully soon. Eddie, Dot and Arnie (from Shaw)<

Thank you so much for your kind words. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and Arnie was a real gentleman. We too hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Lorna

“Another lovely stay, home away from home”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2016

Just returned home after another brilliant stay, such a lovely relaxing stay, definitely gave me some much needed chill out time, and the dogs loved it as well. Wasn't sure how Ruby would react being away from home, but the cottage is so homely, she wasn't at all bothered! Lorna and Martin are lovely, and really make you feel welcome, something that is missing in a lot of places now. There is everything you could need in the cottage, and 3 years on, that bed still lives up to expectations and gives you the best nights sleep ever.

Thanks for your kind words Tom, it was good to see you again. I am really pleased that you got your time to relax.
